Hi,
Being ceramic, if you can take out the purely ceramic dish, it should be fine.
Ceramic dishes have been fired to over 100 degrees Celcius, so can go there again. What you must be very careful about is temperature changes. You can cook from cold or warm in a conventional oven, then sit inside the heater base to keep warm.

I would personally keep the two separate. A good stainless steel pan - with stainless loop handles, and a heat spreader base will do everything you need. You can use on the top burners to seal, then straight in the oven as a casserole, and you can scrub it clean with no worries. If you want to transfer food into the slow cooker - then warm it first to avoid any possibility of it cracking.

You may like to consider an ancient method called a straw box. Basically cook your standard casserole, then place in a well insulated hot-box (lined with straw traditionally) - will keep warm for 5+ hours.

I would not do do oven baking with this type of dish. It was designed to be used with your crock pot, which never reaches more than just above the boiling point of water.

The materials that your crock pot dish is made out of were not made to be heated in an oven.

It would be best for you to go out and buy a proper earthen-ware baking pot. This will give good reliability and there will be no danger of cracking or breaking.

Tip

Crock Pots will save you hundreds of dollars per year!


I use my crock pot at least 3 times per week and you just do not understand what you are missing! cheap meat, tough meats, or meat that you just do not know what to do with...the crock pot! Take a cheap whole chicken and cut it up, rump roast or any cheap cut of beef, add 2 large cans of tomatos, large onion thickly sliced, 1tsp of thyme, 1 tsp salt, pepper to taste, 1 cup chopped celery. Put it on high as soon as you wake up, go to work. Let cook on high alone no stirring for at leat 10 hours. Get rid of any fat pieces and serve with any side dishes. The next day, chop the meat that is left, put back in the crockpot with leftover sauce and cook for 4 hours. It will be thicker. Serve over rice! Two great meals, no work and so CHEAP!

Yes, you can use the stoneware in your gas oven. I am using mine right now in my Convection Oven baking at 400 degrees. I use mine quite often in the oven for baked beaks, then transfer to my Crockpot.

I see no reason why you cant put the crock in the oven. I recommend you keep the temperature under 375 degrees or so.
