Who doesn’t like the dishware made by Ikea, right? They are well designed and last for a very long period of time.
However, you might be wondering if the Ikea bowls, plates, and pans are oven-safe. You might also want to know how much temperature the Ikea bowls can withstand.
Let’s go through each of your questions about whether Ikea bowls are oven safe or not.
Are Ikea bowls oven safe?
The Ikea bowls that are made of oven-safe glass, ceramic, or marked Corningware or Pyrex can withstand the high temperature of the oven. However, not all Ikea bowls are oven-safe. The dishes that are made of wood, plastic, or clay shouldn’t be used for cooking in the oven.
Not every tableware and cookware made by Ikea are not exclusively listed as oven-safe. Let’s take a look individually at which dishware’s are oven safe.
Ikea bowls are usually made of stoneware, tempered glass, and feldspar porcelain. None of the bowls made of these materials will be safe in the oven.
However, there are quite a few bowls that are oven safe and they have the oven-safe symbol below them. The Ikea 365 bowls that are white and have round sides are oven safe.
Most of the plates made by Ikea have a similar type of material as their bowls. So, most of their plates are not safe for cooking at high temperatures in the oven.
In addition to that, they are glazed for beautification, but not every glaze is oven-safe.
There are numerous Ikea pans that are oven-safe. Pans that are made of cast iron, metal, and ceramic are safe for cooking and baking in the oven.
The Ikea glass containers are made of highly thin glass, which can shatter if placed at a very high temperature in the oven. So, the glass containers are not safe for use in the oven unless they are listed as oven-safe products.
Most of the Ikea mugs are either manufactured with feldspar porcelain or glazed. As a result, they are not commonly marked as oven-safe. However, they can withstand the temperature of the oven at some level.
The glass dishes that are made of tempered glass won’t shatter due to the high temperature in the oven. However, the Ikea glass dishes are not marked as oven-safe, so they should be kept away from too much high heat.
Unlike the bowls and plates of Ikea, the Ikea pots are oven-safe. They are usually made of high-quality material that can withstand high oven temperatures. Even the handles of the pots are made with oven-safe material.
The Ikea frying pans are mostly made with embedded steel. As a result, these frying pans won’t melt or shatter while being used for cooking in the oven.
The Ikea ice molds are made with silicone. As a result, the ice molds can withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes them safe for the oven.
How much temperature can Ikea bowls hold?
The amount of temperature an Ikea bowl can hold varies depending on the material of the bowl itself. Not all materials can hold the same amount of heat.
Ikea bowls made of silicone, feldspar porcelain, tempered glass, or cast iron can take a high amount of heat without any damage. Whereas, wood-made or plastic-made bowls will get damaged if they come in contact with moderate temperature.
Ikea bowls that are built with fabricated porcelain material can withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. So, you will be able to cook anything in the oven using these bowls.
Then again, the tempered glass bowls can hold up to 470 degrees Fahrenheit. Moreover, the Ikea bowls manufactured with silicone won’t get damaged at temperatures up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
How do you know if an Ikea bowl is oven safe?
If you use an Ikea bowl that is not oven safe for cooking in the oven, the bowl can break and can damage the oven also. So, knowing if an Ikea bowl is oven safe is very crucial to prevent any damage to the bowl and the oven.
There are multiple ways by which you can know if the bowl is safe for the oven or not. Let’s have a look at how you can know if an Ikea bowl is oven-safe.
Look for an oven-safe symbol:
This is the most simple and easiest way to find out if your Ikea bowl can withstand the heat of the oven. The oven-safe symbol is usually stamped on the bottom of the bowl.
Ikea marks their bowls as oven-safe after proper test and research. So, you can rely on the oven-safe mark on the Ikea bowl to know if it is oven-safe.
Check the material used:
If your Ikea bowl is manufactured with tempered glass, silicone, cast iron, or such other material then it is definitely oven safe. Then again, bowls made of plastic, ceramic, clay, or wood shouldn’t be used in the oven.
So, you should check which material the Ikea bowl is made of and then find out how much temperature that can hold.
Look for any damages:
If there are scratches or damage in the bowl, then the bowl won’t be safe for the oven even if it has an oven-safe stamp. So, you should check for any minor damage to the Ikea bowl before putting it in the oven.
Are Ikea plates ceramic?
There are numerous Ikea plates of various designs that are made with ceramic. The ceramic plates of Ikea are remarkably cost-effective as well as exquisitely designed.
In addition to that, the ceramic plates come in different sizes and shapes to provide you the option to create a unique look at your dinner table.
The ceramic plates are also highly durable along with being beautifully designed. They usually can withstand high temperatures, which can be very helpful for reheating or cooking in the oven.
However, a few of the Ikea ceramic plates are not labeled oven-safe because they are glazed.
That being said, not all Ikea plates are manufactured using ceramic. The Ikea 365+ plates are made of feldspar porcelain.
The plates of this material are quite rigid, durable, and elegant. The porcelain plates can also hold very high heat, which makes them perfect to use in the oven.
Can Ikea ceramic go in the oven?
Ikea ceramic can go in the oven because it won’t get damaged even at very high temperatures. It can be used for reheating, cooking, or baking in the oven.
Ceramic can normally withstand temperatures up to 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Since the Ikea ceramics are polished and refined to make them more smooth, the temperature holding capacity can degrade at some level.
However, even after the processing, the Ikea ceramic can withstand at least 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Due to the high temperature holding capacity, Ikea ceramic can go in the oven without any issue. So, the Ikea ceramic that is marked as oven-safe can definitely go in the oven.
Then again, the products that are not listed as oven-safe but don’t have any damage or glaze can also be used in the oven as well.
Are Ikea plastic bowls oven safe?
Regardless of the manufacturer or type of plastic bowls, they should not be used in the oven. Plastics’ temperature withstanding capacity is very low.
So, if you use a plastic bowl for cooking in the oven, it will melt or burn. Eventually, the whole oven can catch on fire.
Just like every other plastic bowl, the Ikea plastic bowls can’t hold at high heat. Your oven can get permanently damaged from the smoke from the melted plastic. As a result, Ikea plastic bowls are not generally oven-safe.
Although most of the Ikea plastic bowls are not oven-safe, a few of them are safe for use in the microwave. You should only put the Ikea bowls in the microwave that are microwave safe.
So, you should check the bottom part of the plastic bowl before putting it into the microwave.
Most Ikea bowls are safe to be used in the oven. However, there are a few Ikea bowls that are made of materials like plastic and wood, which won’t hold in front of the high temperature of the oven. So, you should use the Ikea bowls for cooking or baking in the oven that are labelled as oven-safe.
