Your clue is that the casserole is sold as bakeware, and is not marked or labeled as safe for the stovetop. Very few ceramic or glass items are safe for stovetop cooking, although some will be usable for induction ranges. The issue is the crystal structure of the ceramic or glass and its heat propagation properties.
People also ask, what temperature does ceramic melt at?
Ceramics generally can withstand very high temperatures, such as temperatures that range from 1,000 °C to 1,600 °C (1,800 °F to 3,000 °F). Glass is often not considered a ceramic because of its amorphous (noncrystalline) character.
What is the melting point of ceramic?
There are refractory ceramics and alloys that have higher melting points, notably T a X 4 H f C X 5 with a melting point of 4215 °C, hafnium carbide at 3900 °C and tantalum carbide at 3800 °C. Carbon cannot be used to hold molten tungsten because they will react to form tungsten carbide.
Can porcelain withstand heat?
The maximum temperature which a coating will withstand for extended periods is related to its firing temperature and its formulation. Special high temperature porcelain enamels and ceramic coatings can be engineered to take sustained heat from 1200 degree F to 2000 degree F (649 degree C to 1093 degree C).
