Is Pampered Chef cookware freezer safe? I went on their website and couldn't find anything to tell me. I freeze a lot of casseroles in advance and have 2 Pampered Chef casserole dishes and would like to use them.
Hand wash only; wash prior to first use. Remove excess food with scraper. It is not recommended to use soap, detergent or an automatic dishwasher. Not dishwasher safe.
Stoneware will naturally season and develop a natural non-stick surface over time with use.
Slight sticking may occur for the first several uses. For best results, bake high-fat foods (e.g., refrigerated biscuits) or lightly brush with cooking oil for the first several uses. Aerosol non-stick spray is not recommended; it will create a sticky residue which is difficult to clean.
Stoneware can be used in conventional, convection and microwave ovens, and is freezersafe. Stoneware is heat-resistant to 450°F (230°C). Do not use Stoneware under broiler or on a direct heat source. Follow oven manufacturer's guidelines.
Pampered Chef stoneware is fabulous. I have been using (and selling) it for 12 years and love it! One thing not mentioned before, is you can freeze it BUT, you need to make sure the casserole is not frozen when you put it in the oven. Hot oven, very cold stone will make the stone break. You can use it right from the refridgerator but not right from the freezer. Good luck!
One good way to keep your cookware free is to line it with a good heavy foil and wrap the casserole in it, freeze, and then remove from the cookware. It will store as it in the container and you still have your cookware to use again.
