Will our cast iron cookware (Le Creuset) work on an electric range with a ceramic glass cooktop?

Our apartment does not allow for gas stoves and we need to change our old stove which has electric coils. But we have heard different opinions on whether we will be able used our Le Creuset pots on the new ceramic glass cooktop which I understand uses radiant heat (not induction). This is despite the Le Creuset website stating that its products will work on glass cooktop.
The Kenmore stove which we are considering is described as having an "Easy-to-clean ceramic glass cooktop with one 12 inch Double, one 9 inch Turbo Boil™ Element and two 6 in. radiant elements". Any personal experience would be very much appreciated.
