Le Creuset Lid in Oven at 450 degrees??

megmosa | May 13, 2008 12:06 PM

I bought Elizabeth Yarnell's Miraculous One-Pot Meals and a Le Creuset dutch oven. She sells my model--which has a plastic lid--on her website.

It concerns me that some of her recipes say to stick the dutch oven, covered, into the oven at 450 degrees. Won't this melt the lid? Le Creuset says it's safe up to 350.

I don't want to melt my lid! Has anyone done this?
