Any oven-safe pans or crockery can be used in the oven. In order to identify if your plate, pot, cup or bowl is oven safe, you need to look for an special Oven-Safe symbol underneath. Some examples of the types of materials that are oven safe are:
- Metals such as stainless steel and cast iron (Avoid items with non-metal parts such as wooden or plastic handles.)
- Ceramics are generally fine to use in the oven. Don’t use plates decorated with adhesive designs and if the ceramics are glazed, make sure they are manufactured to use in a built in oven.
- Oven safe glass is fine to use in the oven, but make sure you don't subject it to temperature shocks such as placing it straight in a very hot oven or moving it from a hot oven to cold water.
- Silicone. Food-grade silicone is great for baking and practically indestructible (unless you cut it).
Typically the following should not be used in the oven:
- Plastics. Some plastics may be able to withstand heat, but they can be difficult to identify. Check with the manufacturer before putting plastics in the oven.
- Wood. Don't use wood in an oven. It will likely warp. If it’s glued you will likely get splits along the glue lines.
