  • Add a small amount of liquid to the ovenware vessel prior to baking foods that release liquids while cooking.

SAFETY
  • See OVENWARE, GLASSWARE, PARTS/ ACCESSORIES SAFETY (below).

PLASTIC COVERS

USE
  • Microwave oven, refrigerator, and freezer. Wash cover before first use. Condensation may develop on underside of cover. Remove cover with care. Allow dish and cover to defrost 15 minutes after freezer storage. To prevent permanent stains and blisters, AVOID REHEATING foods high in oil, fat, sugar or tomatoes. DO NOT overfill dish.
  • Plastic covers are for microwave and storage use only, and are BPA free
FOR PLASTIC COVERS WITH VENT TABS
  • For better sealing results, install cover with vent open. To minimize leaking, dripping and ensure proper seating or sealing of cover to dish, exert downward pressure at dish rim when applying cover. Once cover is in position depress center lightly and hold to evacuate excess air, close vent.
  • Open vent (lift) for microwave use. Make sure vent tab is closed during transportation and storage. DO NOT overfill container. Deluxe vented storage covers fit on bottom for easy store/stack nesting. For ease of fit, open vent when applying cover to bottom of dish.
CARE
  • Wash by hand or in dishwasher top rack only. To minimize staining on plastic covers, wash immediately with warm soapy water.
FOR PLASTIC COVERS WITH VENT TABS
  • Clean vent tab by pressing tab out of cover from underside.

SAFETY
As with all glass products, you must exercise an appropriate degree of care, especially when cooking food at high temperatures. There are three primary risks associated with using glassware for cooking: (1) breakage due to a sudden temperature change applied to the glassware; (2) breakage due to impact if the glassware is dropped or knocked against a hard object; and (3) burning when handling hot bakeware.
 
Failure to follow these instructions can cause breakage resulting in injury or property damage, or may cause your glassware to break or shatter immediately or later.
  • NEVER USE on or under a flame or other direct heat source, including on a stove top, under a broiler, on a grill or in a toaster oven.
  • AVOID SUDDEN TEMPERATURE CHANGES and DO NOT hot glassware; place hot glassware on a wet or cool surface, directly on countertop or metal surface, or in sink; or handle hot glassware with wet cloth. Allow hot glassware to cool on a cooling rack, potholder or dry cloth. Be sure to allow hot glassware to cool as provided above before washing, refrigerating or freezing.
  • Avoid handling hot glassware (including ware with silicone gripping surfaces) without dry potholders.
  • DO NOT use in microwave to hold or support popcorn bags, microwave convenience foods with special browning wrappers, etc.
  • DO NOT use to pop corn, caramelize sugar, or deep fat fry.
