Will it break? What's safe to put in a toaster oven?

Greetings Hounders. We recently replaced our toaster oven with one of those fancy Breville compact smart ovens. Then I read on the internet that putting oven safe glassware like pyrex or anchor hocking isn't recommend for risk of breaking even though it is considered "oven safe" up to 450 degrees. This is disappointing since it would be convenient to pull these containers out of the fridge and pop it in the toaster oven to re-heat leftovers. Since the internet is the un-disputed authority on dissenting opinions, I was wondering if any Chowhounders had actual experience popping some non-metal pan in their toaster oven and had it survive or break. So far, I've baked a pie in the Breville oven in a $5 stoneware pie dish purchased from TJMaxx and not only have it survive, but turn out a surprisingly beautiful looking pie.

So, based on your experience...did it break? Please specify if you were cooking or re-heating.
1) Oven-safe glass such as Pyrex or Anchor Hocking
2) Ceramic or stoneware
3) Terracotta

Thanks,
Redbeanbun
