Torch safe ramekins
A while back I experimented with making Creme Brulee. After a couple tries, it came out pretty good, but in the process I cracked a few ramekins while using a torch to caramelize the sugar.
I'm not sure what they are made out of, it guess it feels like some sort of stoneware or ceramic, but they apparently couldn't take the heat of the torch. In the ramekin's defense, I wasn't using a standard kitchen torch, I was using a much larger propane torch from Home Depot.
Now I'm looking for a new set of ramekins to replace them. I want to make absolutely sure they can handle the heat in case I want to try it again someday. Unfortunately, I haven't found any Ramekins that advertise being "torch safe", and I have only found a few that advertise even being broiler safe.
I've found some ramekins on Amazon that advertise being either broiler safe, or safe up to 500F degrees. Is this the kind of thing I'm looking for? Unfortunately, as this is my first post, I can't include links.
Is there a specific material I should be looking for? How can I tell if a Ramekin is safe to use with a torch?
