Porcelain dish - will it break in my oven?

snax | Jul 6, 2010 04:45 PM

So I’ve read that when using Pyrex to reheat food in the oven a % of the dish has to have something in it to avoid breakage. More full then empty I guess.

Is a porcelain dish going to be a little more flexible? My current need for the dish would be to reheat 2 slices of lasagna and also cooking enchiladas and reheating a chicken casserole. I should say that I have been using a plate (as it doesn’t react with the tomato sauce) but I’d rather use something with sides so that I can use foil to create a good seal and that won’t stick to the top of my lasagna.

Is a little larger then I need going to be fine to use? I’d have more use for a larger dish but not at the expense of cleaning up broken bake ware in the oven.
