+1 here. No problems at all - just make sure you add extract off the burner and stir well. You can also add your fermentables (extract) late in the boil.
Also, depending on your stove, you may not need to have the heat on high for the whole time. On my ceramic top, once I get to a boil I turn it down to about 80% power - I still get a nice rolling boil.
