    Can microwave safe glass vessels be used in an electric oven? I have this oven: http://www.cromaretail.com/Bajaj-28-Litres-2800TMC-Oven-Toaster-Grill-%28White%29-pc-469-468.aspx

    I just checked and found the following written on the manual of the glass ware: http://www.borosil.com/products/consumer/storage/

    SUITABLE FOR CONVENTIONAL OVEN
    SUITABLE FOR USE OVER FLAME
    SUITABLE FOR MICROWAVE OVEN

    Can it be considered safe (as it says)?

  • Sometimes. Basically, this is the same as asking if glass is oven safe:

    Generally, glass is oven-safe if taken from room temperature and put in a moderate-temperature, preheated oven. The key thing is to avoid temperature shocks (which will cause the glass to shatter). Some glass is specifically designed for oven use (either by being tempered or made of borosilicate glass). Often glassware will say if it is safe for oven use or not, and under what conditions—check the packaging or instructions it came with.

    You also need to take precautions when removing glass from the oven. Do not set it on something that'll conduct heat away rapidly, such as a wet countertop.

    Before heating glassware, inspect it for damage. Scratches, chips, etc. make failure much more likely. This applies to the microwave as well.

    Note that non-glass parts of microwave-safe glassware may not be oven safe. For example, if it has a plastic lid, that should generally not be used in the oven (even though its OK in the microwave).

    edit:

    In response to your update, that oven is what would often be called a toaster or countertop oven. Those change temperature much more rapidly than a larger oven (which can be electric as well). So, generally, you'd avoid glass in them.

    But, your glass says it can be used over a flame, from the freezer. So it's clearly one of the very shock-resistant ones, possibly borosilicate. I wouldn't expect it to be a problem. Just make sure to preheat the oven.

    Also, since you know who made it, you can of course contact the manufacturer to confirm.

  • Yes, they can be used

    No, it's not a good idea. It's just too easy to make one small mistake which will result in at least a ruined dish, and at worst case glass shattering into your face

    It's not worth the risk. What gain is there in using glass in an oven?

    Even glass in the microwave can get so hot that it will crack/explode if put onto a surface with uneven heat (e.g. a single water drop on your work surface)

  • From here: https://cooking.stackexchange.com/a/13170/6168 The first approach which comes to mind would be to use a pan which insulates well.

  • I need some help in buying a toaster oven: My needs are primarily to roast/grill vegetables, occasional baking (bread, brownies, muffins). I am vegetarian and this is for a 2 person home. I'd like it to compact, simple to clean, and built to last. (I can live without more advanced features if this means it will be more reliable.) Is it helpful to have a toaster oven with a convection feature? Does this lead to better results in baking? What exactly is this feature anyway? Is it a fan that moves the hot air around in the toaster oven? Will a rotisserie feature help with grilling

  • I bought a Singer SMW25GCQ6 model microwave oven. It has convection and grill features. For baking cakes and for grilling we don't use the glass turntable plate since we thought it could cause the cakes to brown unevenly. Is it safe to use the glass turntable in convection mode with the baking to hold the baking cake containers? I'm asking this because there is mode which uses microwave + convection for roasting chicken. So that means the glass turntable should be there and it will work for convection mode as well right? Then how about grill mode?

I've had some luck with using regular coffee grinders and running it for a long time, but I'd like to explore (possibly manual) alternatives. There are 2 reasons I want to try the manual alternative: 1) Electric coffee grinders are extremely noisy. This makes it kind of impractical to grind coffee at odd hours (which I love to do) 2) My electric coffee grinder seems to be wearing pretty fast. I tried the Kyocera "Hario Skerton" grinder which was eah. It's a bit fragile

  • 3.5% agar agar makes a sturdy gel, which can be used to make candy. However, instead of dissolving smoothly in the mouth, the agar tends to break down into small chunks. Would adding a percent or two of gelatin add meltiness, or is there some other additive that is commonly used to improve mouth feel in candies of this type? April 12 Update: Tried various combinations of Agar with gelatin, glycerol, xanthan gum, tapioca flour. 3% agar with 2.5% tapioca was least crumbly, but still not great. Tapioca alone is pretty sticky stuff, and not suitable for pressing into molds, but with the addition
