I recently found that I inherited a number of pieces from my aunt’s estate, and I am not quite sure about a lot of the different items that I have now.

I wouldn’t say that I am a bad cook, but I pretty much only stick with the basics. This means that I like to use a pan, a pot and a baking dish for most any meal that I make. However, when I started looking through the items that I inherited, in terms of cooking, it seems that there are a lot of different ceramic pieces.

I am not quite sure how to use ceramic when it comes to cooking. Can it go into the oven? What about the microwave? I know that some of these pieces are more like serving dishes than what I may actually use to cook with. I just want to be sure that I am not going to ruin them if I try to put them in the oven and whatnot.

The most I have ever really used ceramic for is when I have a few favorite cereal bowls, coffee mugs, and a I have a flat iron for my hair that has ceramic plates. Anything I could learn would be great.
