Pillvuyt in the oven -- how hot can it go?

I just scored a few bargain pieces of Pillivuyt and Apilco bakeware at a closeout sale. I can't find any information about safe maximum oven temperatures for these items on-line. They just seem to say "oven, dishwasher, and microwave safe". Does anyone have any max recommendations? I think 450 degrees would be about the hottest oven temp I would use with these pieces. I also assume that these cannot stand a broiler or stove top, of course.

    Not sure about the broiler part. I put a few of the tart dishes under the broiler once to make a brulee crust and they came out fine. Since then I've bought myself a kitchen torch.

      The website that I buy from says:

      Thermal shock resistant – withstands temperatures between -25°C and 300°C, and can be transferred directly from freezer to oven or microwave.

      Which is 572 degrees Fahrenheit

      I use mine under the broiler all the time and I often have it baking in the oven at 425 Fahrenheit

        Resistant to thermal shocks
        Pillivuyt products can withstand temperatures ranging from –15°F to +575°F
        (-25°C +300°C) and go directly from freezer to oven or microwave.
        and
        can be used on gas or electric burner with diffuser
