# Can a heated surface heat a solid on it above the temperature of the surface itself?

Let's say for example that I have a ceramic stove-top that heats to a measured maximum of $$400\ \mathrm{^\circ F}$$. I have a skillet of some unknown material that should not be heated above $$400\ \mathrm{^\circ F}$$. Is it possible for the stove-top to somehow heat the skillet on it above the temperature that it is capable of heating itself?
