This baking set can be displayed when not in use. The set is food safe, microwave safe, oven safe and dishwasher safe. The only need for caution is to not "shock the stoneware." You can bake with any of the pieces, but I would recommend preheating the piece while warming up your oven. Once hot, assemble the casserole or other item to be baked and put back in the oven. One nice thing about stoneware, it retains it's heat longer than porcelain or glass. These are perfect for family or friend get-togethers. the food will stay hot longer.
