2. The One That Is Resistant to Extreme Temperatures
Usually, you need to be careful with stoneware plates in extreme temperatures. But there are some that are actually designed to be stuck in the oven. This is great for those wanting to keep parts of a meal warm or stick it in the freezer until you want to serve it up the following day.
While you should always air on the side of caution, getting stoneware plates that are designed to cope with extreme temperatures is always a must and a great convenience for your meal planning.
