Okay, so I've never done this...but someone told me that you can freeze meals in the stoneware, and just put the whole thing into the oven. I don't know...never done it, and not willing to sacrifice my stoneware. If you take a frozen piece of stoneware (with food in it) and put it into the oven, won't it suffer thermal shock? Do you have to thaw it first, or what? Please let me know if any of you do this, and if so, how to do this correctly!!! Thank you!
