Color-changing Fiestaware? (or How oven-safe is it?)
I know Fiestaware is oven-safe, but I was wondering if anyone knew what maximum oven temperature is acceptable.
Last night, I baked a shepherd's pie in my Fiestaware covered casserole, and was alarmed to see the bright red glaze turn dark red after a half hour in a 400 degree oven. It actually did go back to its normal color, but I'm still worried that 400 degrees is too hot to safely use Fiestaware. Is it?
On their website it says they can withstand heat up to 500 degrees. It also states that you can take it out of the oven and put right into the fridge, safely! I think it's fine. I have used mine to heat things.
I know what the company website says, but others, who sell Fiestaware, caution that 350 degrees is the top heat it can withstand safely. Not sure what 'safely' means.
