crockpot insert used in oven?

I have a heavy, ceramic insert for my crockpot (with a clear glass lid). Can it be used in the oven?

  1. What is the material used for the lid handle? I have used my crockpot covered with foil in the oven - 300 degrees if I remember correctly but I shied away from using the glass lid because of some plastic on it.

    1. stymie...I had an old crockpot (extra one) and I used the insert for baking no-knead bread @500+ degrees in the oven. I did inadvertently melt the lid handle off but the lid itself was intact.

      1. Just curious. What do you want to bake in your insert? Bread?

        1. If it's a Crock-Pot branded crockpot, the manufacturer says the insert can go into oven up to 400 degrees F.
