A: The bread trays are NOT made for cooking. They are only for serving. All other items we make that do not have the black antiquing in the cooking surface can be used for cooking.
One of the most beautiful things about non-toxic Wilton Armetale® Serveware is that you can cook in it. Armetale® pieces can withstand temperatures up to 1000°F, so you don't have to worry about putting it in the oven, on top of the stove or on the grill.
Hot foods cooked and served in Wilton Armetale® serveware stay hot longer.
Drinks and foods, such as iced tea and salads, that you chill in Armetale® serveware stay cool longer when put on the table.
Frozen meat placed on a Wilton Armetale plate or tray at room temperature will thaw very quickly thanks to the thermal properties of the metal.
Cooking or heating food in the serving bowl or casserole makes entertaining easy and clean up a snap. And because of the heat conducting qualities of Armetale® metal, the tray will retain the heat throughout the metal. Be careful to use potholder or oven at all times.
Yes. Armetale products are specfically developed to cook and serve food and can withstand temperatures up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Our products retain heat very well and will remain hot for an extended period of time. As with any metal, food should not be stored in it for a sustained length of time.
We recommend that before using your Armetale piece, you spray it with a cooking spray or coat it with your favorite cooking oil. This will protect it from possible discoloration when using dairy, acidic or salty foods.
You can place your piece in the fridge or freezer, or run under cold water for a few minutes to chill it. When you serve your cold food on your chilled Armetale piece, the food will remain chilled for an extended period of time.
Yes. Antiqued pieces which have a black or color paint applied to highlight the design, may be used for serving food, as well as for warming purposes. Due to the special artistic design of these pieces, we recommend warming them at no higher than 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Wilton Armetale, in keeping with our high environmental standards, uses the safest paints available in the finishing process of our antiqued pieces. Antiqued pieces should not be used under the broiler. All pieces with antiquing on the cooking surface should not be used in the oven or stovetop. These items can be used only for serving food.
