i didn't mean to say that phenolic was better or worse... but if i had to guess, i'd say, "worse."
let's just say for some odd reason, you want to keep a big pot of something in the oven at a low temp... i would NOT suggest putting plastic in the oven like that. who knows... they might warp, melt, give-off vapors, etc.
i would go with the straight 365 series... all 18/10 stainless steel. they have served me well over the years for a REALLY decent price.
