Can visionware go in oven


The short answer is YES!

In the 1990's Corning produced a series of Visions cookware, brown amber and cranberry colored glass-ceramic dishes and casseroles, that had the same basic properties of its white Pyroceram cookware. Visions cookware could go directly from freezer to hot oven to stove-top to the microwave oven to table to fridge to the broiler to the dishwasher, etc. Extreme temperature changes did not affect the very durable cookware, While many folks mistake Visions cookware for Pyrex bake-ware, they are not the same. Visions cookware was never issued in the forms (square pans, rectangle baking pans, loaf pans, pie pans, etc that clear glass Pyrex baking pans had been produced in for decades. In any case, Visions glass-ceramic cookware could go direct from the freezer to the hot oven - there would be NO DAMAGE to the cookware in such a practice. Visions glass-ceramic cookware also has markings to indicate usage. The majority of Visions cookware were of the "stove pot" design - stove top was intended from the start. However it is practical to let the food defrost first, or adjust the cooking time in order to create a better thoroughly cooked dish.

Yes, Visions cookware can be used in the oven! One caveat is that the pot lids are Pyrex which means that the pot lids can not be placed under the broiler (who does that anyway?), or under direct heat, or while hot on wet surfaces. The pot lids were meant to be pot lids - just like other Pyrex glass pot lids on most cookware.

Yes, Visions cookware can be used in the oven!

Tip

Using stainless steel utensils in a microwave oven


Every one knows that one cannot use metal utensils/bowls in a microwave oven.
But did you know that this does not apply to a utensil/bowl made out of stainless steel?
Try it this way.
Put some water in a stainless steel container and place it in the microwave for 5 seconds.The water will heat up without any sparks being created.
One could actually heat up anything in this way without any danger of causing a fire.

Kenmore 62463 / 721.62463201 Stainless Steel 1200 Watts Microwave. My daughter used it as a timer for reading and set it to cook for 30 minutes with nothing in it. It turns on but is loud and no longer...


You probably fried the magnetron(it actually makes the microwaves that do the cooking). I bet you will find the magnet is broken(from excessive heat). There should be a diagnostic guide sheet somewhere inside the housing(due to running production changes,this is a guide for the pros to test the power supply,magnetron,etc with an ohmmeter to determine which is defective.

Sharp R408LS keeps sparking after minimal use. This is our 3rd one. This is mounted on an inside cabintet.


The magnetron is arcing in the interior and will eventually burn out. Check the inside for bare metal or food particals, if okay! the magnetron is breaking down and will eventually go.

I have a new induction cook top. When using for the first time I found an F or P appeared next to the element I was using. I have bought stainless steel cookware specifically to use. The user manual...


Stainless steel (or Aluminium) cookware will not normally work with an Induction cooker: Induction cooker need cookware that have a certain amount of metal especially at the bottom of the pot or pan.

An easy way to check if the cookware is suitable is to use a small (fridge) magnet: if it stick to the pot/pan then it is very likely that the pot/pan is suitable for induction 'magnetic' cooking!

Hope my small hint is of assistance and if so, vote accordigly!

My daughter put a metal ring in the microwave to heat up. I was not there, so I did not know what happen and if sparks flared up. But the microwave kept working OK for half a day before acting crazy. ...


There really shouldn't be a correlation between the metal ring in the oven cavity and the erratic operation of the control board. Although it might seem suspicious, what happens inside the oven cavity stays in the oven cavity.

Microwave glass tray is broken. It is discontinued.


Yes you will not hurt anthing by not putting on the bottom. One substitution that works extremely well is to find you a plate like they use in regular ovens or anything that is microwavable of that sort. Sears has an excellent selection of microwavable cookware and there is nothing in the rule book that say you canno find you a piece to match the bottom of your microwave. It works either way. Good luck and God bless.
