Question What is the difference between the working of a microwave safe skillet and casserole?

Hi guys, i have a microwave safe glass casserole dish. But my cook book on microwave cooking asks for microwave safe skillet. What is the difference between the working of the two, and can i use the casserole where the author is using the skillet ?! I think i can, i do not find any difference in the working between the two, but i am afraid.. so thought of asking you guys. I do not have a microwave safe skillet, i only have a microwave safe glass casserole dish.

As jp asked, what are you going to cook? Just off the top of my head, I'd say your casserole could be substituted. However, it would be nice to have more information.

Never heard of a microwave proof skillet (neither has google). Use the glass casserole.

I have a microwave safe skillet. Its made by Visions. I don't know that they make them anymore though. They come in different sizes, and depths.

That's right, Alix. I forgot about "Visions" cookware. It can be found here. I've purchased quite a few items from these folks. I find their prices very good and their shipping quite fair...$4.95 USD for orders under $59 USD. After that, shipping's free, Worth going in with a friend or two to buy stuff.

Whoa! I sound like a commercial.

Im only confused because I consider a skillet for frying/sauteeing and a casserole dish for heating and baking.

Jp, the Visions cookware was designed to be used on top of the stove, hence the skillet. I realize it's scary to think of putting glass on a unit, but that's what Visions created. I would still be a bit leery of doing it.

I understand Katie I have used visions in the microwave I never zap in in any kind of plastic but the word skillet threw me off as I consider a skillet made of metal.
