Now, it's supposed to be for browning stuff in the microwave. I was trying think how I might describe it, according to Mr P, it's ceramic with black bobbles on the bottom confused and a glass lid. (Even I had worked that bit out!)

Question is, would it be safe to use in an ordinary oven?

(I have never actually used it for anything, I sort of inherited it along with a cat and a lot of other kitchen stuff)

Only one way to find out hmm

Aka Sat 18-Jan-14 16:33:54

If its not beautiful or useful throw it away. I'm looking at Mr Aka as I write this....

Why would you want to use it in an ordinary oven?

If you've never actually used it, you could give it to Oxfam!

Perhaps it's time for a car boot sale?

Jen don't go crossing thread!! wink

Nice to see you back, only just realised smile

I have one, with white bobbles on, I use mine in the ordinary oven, as far as I know they are made to withstand great heat, they are made of the same stuff, space shuttle nose cones are.

Try it but put a layer of foil onto baking sheet under it, just in case!

I used mine in an ordinary oven for years. I've only just thrown it away because I dropped the lid and got fed up with using tin foil instead.

Aka grin

It's just that is the perfect size for some things that I cook in the oven!

hummingbird Sat 18-Jan-14 17:13:50

Yes, it'll be fine!

NfkDumpling Sat 18-Jan-14 17:14:09

I'm now starting to wish I had one with bobbles on too.

Anne58 Sat 18-Jan-14 17:17:36

Personally I think the bobbles are quite overrated and sooo last year!

Aka Sat 18-Jan-14 17:46:26

I read that bobbles are back in?

Ana Sat 18-Jan-14 17:48:16

Only pale mocha ones, though...sad

Anne58 Sat 18-Jan-14 17:50:42

Bum! Mine are definitely black, or maybe charcoal grey????

Aka Sat 18-Jan-14 17:51:32

Charcoal grey is the new black. Mocha is just a posh word for beige shock

newist Sat 18-Jan-14 17:54:00

I have 25 bobbles

Nonu Sat 18-Jan-14 17:55:38

newist Sat 18-Jan-14 17:57:23

Anne58 Sat 18-Jan-14 18:04:13
