lol actually that makes more sense (kinda). I think now i get it... i think because not everyone knows exactly what cookware is people have their own ideas as to what they believe it to be... Which in a way makes it even more confusing.

It's all cookware if you do any kind of cooking with it. Cookware is the overall category. Bakeware is a specific kind of cookware.

In general useage, cookware is used to refer to stovetop equipment and bakeware to oven stuff.

I also believe this is technically correct.

There is a distinction. Cookware is general purpose cooking utensils excluding baking. Baking requires high temperature so the product must be specially made to resist burning. Bakeware are specailly made utensils for use in the oven or on high temperature stoves. If you cook rice, you are using cookware; if you bake pan cakes, you are using bakeware.

I do not think heat has anything to do with it. For instance, woks are used for extremely high heat cooking (much higher than you will get in an oven) yes a wok would not be considered bakeware.

I consider my stainless steel cookware because the design is for the stovetop ~ it's got handles and lids ~ HOWEVER, I often will move something from the stovetop to the oven after searing or something similar. With that said, I would say that the temperature isn't the gage for if something is cookware verses bakeware nor is using it exclusively on the stove or in the oven.
