Having an oven-safe pan can take your meals and your Cookware from good to great. With the ability to oven-finish dishes, you no longer need to feel confined to only your stovetop when cooking with Stainless Clad.
Since Stainless Steel Cookware is one of the most popular choices for home and professional chefs, it’s worth wondering whether or not Stainless Steel can go in the oven—and the answer is yes. But not all Stainless Steel pans are the same, so it is important to know more information about your cookware before exposing it to the high heat of the oven.
Is Stainless Steel Oven Friendly?
Due to the elements it contains, Stainless Steel is considered an alloy and has a high melting point, making it oven-safe. If you plan to use your Stainless Steel pans in the oven, it is important to purchase high quality cladded Stainless cookware. This is because lower-quality Stainless Steel is often not oven-safe.
When shopping for oven-safe, high quality Stainless Steel pans, choose cookware made from 18/10 Stainless Steel and 304 or 400 grade Stainless Steel for best oven use.
Be sure to avoid pans with aluminum bases, as they are not able to withstand the high heat in the oven. Also, be sure to stay away from Stainless Steel cookware with plastic or wooden handles, as those are not oven safe—even if the pan is 304 grade or 400 grade Stainless Steel.
Advantages of Oven-Safe Pans
Professional chefs as well as experienced home cooks know how important it is to have high quality cookware that is as versatile as it is durable. The ability to cook with Stainless Pans in the oven is one of the many perks of having high quality cookware, along with many others.
