Slow Cooker Crock in Oven?
I have an old (as in 25+ years old) crock that came from a slow cooker that gave up the ghost. How can I tell if it's oven safe? Say for temps up to 350* F.
I still have the original manual, but it doesn't address the issue. The manufacturer (H & H Appliances of Whittier, CA) doesn't seem to be around anymore (at least not on the web).
The crock is glazed on the inside, but not on the outside (it wasn't removable from the heating unit). The capacity is 5 qts. The crock is described as "stoneware." The glass cover is thick, with no obvious flaws. In case it helps, the original slow cooker was called a "Poke Along Crockery Cook Pot."
So, can anyone suggest a safe way to test this unit to ascertain its heating limit in an oven? Thanks.
