Hello, this is Chef Peter Ryan from Cook Street School of Culinary Arts in Denver, Colorado. Today, we're going to talk about how to determine if pans are oven-safe. Well, when it comes to pans and whether or not they are oven safe or not, you need to consider that the pans themselves are fabricated at a much higher temperature than your oven at home could ever reach. So, with that in mind, I would almost assume that most of your pans are good to go unless the manufacturer's data explicitly says not to put it in the oven. Also, what you want to be aware of is you don't want to have any extraneous material such as rubber tops, homemade decoratives that go on the end of your handle. You don't want to put any of that stuff into your oven. Now, in this pan right here, we have what we call a cool handle and the temperature that this is good until is about 500 degrees. However, if you are concerned, I would definitely check your manufacturer's data once again to see if any of these rubber handles would not be good to go into the oven. So, that's it. That's how to determine if your pans are oven-safe.
