Ikea offers everything you need to stock and decorate any room in your home, including the kitchen. If you plan to purchase your kitchenware from Ikea, you might wonder if their dishes are oven-safe. We have researched Ikea's products to bring this answer to you.
Ikea's tableware, including plates, bowls, and mugs, is not listed as oven-safe. They are, however, safe for use in the microwave. Ikea offers serveware, including serving dishes and cookware, that are listed as safe for use in the oven.
Continue reading so we can show you what Ikea products are safe for oven use and which ones are best left out of the oven. We will also discuss how to find out if your dishes are oven-safe.
IKEA Oven-Safe Kitchenware
Ikea stocks plates made from various materials, including feldspar porcelain, stoneware, and tempered glass. None of their plates are explicitly listed as oven-safe. However, materials such as stoneware and tempered glass are made to withstand oven temperatures.
Feldspar porcelain can withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees. If you want to use your Ikea plates in the oven, it is best to test one and see how it holds up in the oven.
All of the Ikea plates are listed as microwave safe.
Ikea bowls are made from many of the same materials as their plates. Like their plates, bowls are not listed as oven safe. One reason may be that many of their bowls are glazed, and only certain glazes are oven-safe. Again, many Ikea bowls are listed as microwave and dishwasher safe, while a select few are more delicate.
True to the other tableware we've discussed, many Ikea mugs are treated with a glaze or made with feldspar porcelain. This means that they are not labeled as oven safe but may be able to withstand oven temperatures. Ikea also offers some tempered glass options, described as able to withstand higher temperatures but not listed as oven safe.
While Ikea doesn't offer any oven-safe tableware, there are many options for oven-safe pans available.
VARDAGEN - Pot with Lid
This 3.2-quart pot is made from enameled steel. Both the pot and the lid are listed as oven-safe, and can be used on the stovetop, in the oven. These pots can also go in the refrigerator.
VARDAGEN - Casserole with Lid
This classic cast iron casserole dish with a lid can be used in the oven and on the stove. It comes pre-treated with soybean oil and has a 6.9-quart capacity.
IKEA 365+ - Saucepan with Lid
Made from stainless steel, both the pan and the lid are suitable for oven use. This product comes with a 15-year limited warranty and features measuring lines on the inside of the pot for convenience. While this saucepan has a 2.- quart capacity, it is part of a line of saucepans of varied sizes.
OUMBÄRLIG - Sauté Pan with Lid
Also made from stainless steel, this 9 1/2" sauté pan can be used on any cooktop and in the oven. Like many Ikea oven-safe pans, you can also use this pan's lid in the oven. While this sauté pan has a non-stick surface, no harmful chemicals were used to create this feature.
OUMBÄRLIG - Wok
This 12 1/2" wok is the only one offered by Ikea that is oven-safe. While the other woks offered are made with plastic handles, this wok is all stainless steel, making it suitable for the high oven temperatures where plastic would melt. This product is treated with a Teflon non-stick surface making it easier to cook with less of a mess to clean up after.
Much of Ikea serveware falls into the same category as Ikeatableware; they are treated with glazes that may not be able to withstand high temperatures. However, Ikea does offer some glass serving dishes that you can use both in the oven and for serving.
MIXTUR - Oven/Serving Dish
This 14x10" serving dish is made with heat-resistant glass, making it oven safe. It is also suitable for the microwave and dishwasher. It is also available in an 11x7" size.
MIXTUR - Oven/serving Dish (set of 4)
These smaller oven-safe serving dishes are perfect for heated dips or small appetizers. The three smaller dishes measure 4x3" and the larger dish they sit in measures 10x4".
FÖLJSAM - Oven Dish
This dish is classified as an oven dish, but you can also use it to serve food straight from the oven to the table. The Foljsam oven dish is made from tough, borosilicate glass. It can handle transitions from extreme temperatures making it a convenient dish for storing leftovers or heating food straight from the freezer.
LYCKAD - Oven/Serving Dish
The first dish we've discussed that is not made of glass is the Lyckad serving dish. It is made from stoneware and oven-safe, colored glaze. It is sold in a 2-pack, making it convenient to cook and serve your full meal.
LÄTTVIKTIG - Oven Dish
Made from tempered opal glass, this oven dish can go straight from the oven to the table, making it a suitable and convenient serving dish as well. It is lightweight and matches any kitchen and table decor.
Can Ikea Dishes Go In The Microwave?
Ikea offers many dishes that you can use in the microwave. If you are shopping on their website, the product description of each dish lists whether or not it is safe for microwave use. The description also lists the highest temperature it can safely withstand if there is a limit.
Can Ikea Dishes Go In An Air Fryer?
Generally, any dish that is oven safe can be used in an air fryer. Ikea stocks several ovenware options that would be able to be used in the air fryer as well since they are oven safe.
What Type Of Glass Does Ikea Use In Their Dishes?
Ikea prides itself on moving toward a goal of only using recycled glass in their products. Additionally, their glass dishes are made from heat-resistant glass that does not contain cadmium or lead.
Who Makes Ikea Glassware?
Ikea's glassware comes from a variety of sources. If you explore Ikea's website, you will see that each glass item lists the designer responsible for creating that particular piece.
For example, Ingegerd Raman designed the Drygrip white wine glass. This glass is made from crystalline and is dishwasher safe.
How Do You Know If A Dish Is Oven Safe?
Informative packaging paired with common sense and awareness will go a long way in helping you determine if a dish is oven-safe.
Many manufacturers stamp their oven-safe dishes with a symbol indicated that the dishes can be used in the oven. Looking for this stamp or a warning otherwise stating not intended for oven use will be your first step.
However, the presence of a symbol, or lack thereof, is not enough to rely upon. Different companies, especially if they are based in a country other than your own, may adhere to different regulations that you are not aware of.
Take note of the material used to make the dish in question. Materials such as silicone, tempered glass, and cast iron, are made for use in high temperatures. On the other hand, you should not use plastic and wood in the oven.
If you are reasonably sure that your dish is oven-safe and you give it a try, take note of the condition of the dish when you remove it from the oven. If the dish is melted, cracked, or warped do not continue to use it in the oven, regardless of whether it claims to be oven-safe.
While Ikea does not list many products as oven-safe, they are made with materials that may be suitable for oven use. If you choose to test your Ikea products for use in the oven, proceed with caution. Make sure that they do not contain any unsafe materials for the oven, such as plastic.
If you test your products and damage occurs by the oven or they give off a toxic odor if they are treated with glazes, discontinue use. When in doubt, do not hesitate to reach out to customer service to get more information about your Ikea products and their ability to be used in the oven.
