Is stoneware good for baking?

How do you bake with Stoneware?
Because Stoneware is built using a high-temperature baking process, it thrives even in your hottest home oven. The rest is easy. Simply choose what to make, pour or place in the dish and - voila!
Does it take longer to bake in stoneware?
A trademark feature of stoneware gear is its ability to retain heat - it’ll continue cooking your food for a little while longer after leaving the oven. The trade off is the slightly longer time it takes to heat up. But for a product with so many exceptional features, that is nothing to worry about - you won’t even know the difference when you’re in the kitchen.
How do you care for Stoneware dishes?
Stoneware dishes are a breeze to care for! With a durable glazed coating and a top-end ceramic build, stoneware is suited for any cleaning product - and is even dishwasher-safe!
Avoid soaking your stoneware in standing water overnight, but don’t be shy about scrubbing and cleaning the pan!
Metal tools for cleaning or cooking can eventually scrape the glazed coating of your pan, and should therefore be used with extreme care.
Does stoneware break easily?
Like all ceramic products, a heavy fall can break a stoneware product. In order to keep it maximally durable, avoid soaking it in your sink for too long. Don’t worry - dishwashers are perfectly safe for stoneware, as they’ll never be fully submerged, only cleaned!
Is stoneware better than ceramic?
Stoneware undergoes a special baking, glazing, and sealing process that makes it more durable and useful than a simple ceramic dish. This stoneware baker (4 quart) is much more than another pot!
