Is a Crock Pot oven-safe?

Ok, so I need to prepare a casserole for tomorrow, and I realized I'm missing a casserole dish. Can I use the pot that comes in my "West End Crockery" slow cooker? I'm just not sure if that material is designed to handle temperatures of 350 or so.

I believe a removeable slow cooker crock would be safe in the oven. Have you checked your owners manual?

Don't have it... When I bought it, I figured, "Why would I ever need a manual to tell me how to work a slow cooker?" ...LOL

Maybe you could search the Internet to find the manufacturer and download a manual from their site.

The crock itself may be safe, but the lid may not be. What company makes yours? I bet they have an 800 number you could call to ask.

Humm ... the only reference to "West End Crockery" I could find anywhere is an Import/Export Wholesaler and Discount store in South Africa (and that site does have a glitch). Now, if perhaps your slow cooker is "West Bend Crockery" - you might be able to find the manuals on West Bend's Slow Cookers & Crockery Cookers page.

Why not just make the casserole WITH the crockpot?
