Cuisinart is a fantastic collection of cookware that everyone should have in their homes. They provide pans with a nonstick coating without the dreaded Teflon. That way, you don’t have to worry about it flaking off into your food as you’re cooking. And while the pans are great to use on the stove, you may wonder if they’re safe to use in the oven.

All of the pans made by Cuisinart are oven-safe. Some pans are only safe up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, while others can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees if they’re of the hard-anodized variety. Furthermore, the stainless steel lids are also oven safe up to 500 degrees, while the glass lids are safe up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

This guide will walk you through the safety surrounding using the Cuisinart Collection in the oven. This will help to prevent any accidents from happening. You won’t have to worry about your glass lid shattering or your handle melting as long as you follow the advice in this guide.

All of the pans that are of the Cuisinart variety are oven-safe; however, the temperature for what they can withstand will significantly vary from 350 degrees to 500 degrees.

You can always check your manual to see what your particular collection can withstand so that you don’t accidentally harm your beloved cookware.

We suggest only going by the manual when you’re looking for the temperature maximums. If you purchase your set off of Amazon, or another third-party website, you may run into inaccurate information.

To double-check what temperature your Cuisinart pan can withstand, go to to look up the manuals if you don’t have one.

Are Cuisinart Glass Lids Oven-Safe?

We’ve covered the fact that the pans themselves are oven-safe, but what about the lids? There are collections out there, believe it or not, that have oven-safe pans but not oven-safe lids. However, you don’t have to worry about that with Cuisinart, as their lids are, in fact, safe to put in the oven.

However, it would help if you were careful as some of the pans come with glass lids. Cuisinart uses tempered glass, and while the pan it comes with may be able to withstand 500 degrees, the glass can only withstand up to 350 degrees.

Are Cuisinart Stainless Steel Lids Oven-Safe?

Like your glass lids, the stainless steel lids are also oven-safe and can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

You don’t have to worry about these as much as you do the tempered glass since the stainless steel lids may be able to stand hotter temperatures than the pan itself.

Can You Put Cuisinart Pans In The Broiler

While we’ve officially figured out that you can use Cuisinart pans in the oven, that may beg the question of whether you can use these in the broiler too. And if so, is it safe for the lids to go in as well? This is important to know so you can take care of your cookware correctly. That being said, the stainless steel and cast iron sets are both broiler-safe, but anything that has the non-stick factor cannot be put in the broiler.

The non-stick coating cannot be put into the broiler because it will eventually degrade, and then toxic fumes may be released into the air. Because of the way that broilers heat the food, the nonstick pans don’t work in them. There’s nothing to buffer that heat, so it goes directly onto the nonstick surface.

Precautions When Using Cuisinart Pans In The Oven

Even though Cuisinart pans are safe to use in the oven, it’s essential that you follow some safety precautions when using them.

  • Beware the broiler temperature: Be careful when using the ‘high’ setting on the broiler as this may exceed the recommended max temperature. You will need to check out your oven manual to see what temperature it operates at for each setting, so you know whether a particular pan is safe to use in it.
  • Do not overheat: You don’t want to go over the recommended maximum temperature for your pans. Eventually, your pan will warp, or the coating will emit toxic fumes. This is why there are limits.
  • The pan is hot: When you’re cooking on the stove, the handle is designed to stay nice and cool to the touch. However, when it’s in the oven, the handle is also at this temperature for the same amount of time as the pan. Therefore, it’s vital that you use oven mitts and precaution when you’re removing the pan from the oven as the entire thing is extremely hot.
  • Do not change the temperature suddenly: A drastic change in temperature is also a big no-no when it comes to your Cuisinart pans. Do not take it from the oven and run cold water into it as this will shock your pan, causing it to warp. Let the pan set on the side and cool down before you wash it.

Steps To Find Oven Safe Temperature For Cuisinart Pans

If you’re not sure about the oven-safe temperature of your specific Cuisinart pan, there’s an easy way to look it up. Below, we’ve included the steps for you to do this in the event you need to search for the information.

  • Go to the Cuisinart website. Always check the temperatures in your manual or on the official website. You don’t want to check Amazon or another third-party site as the numbers can be wrong. When in doubt, go to
  • Search by model number. You can insert the model number of your set in the search bar, or you can type the collection name.
  • Click the user manual. After you search for your particular collection, you will have the choice to click on the user manual. You can either download or open it.
  • Check the temperature in the manual. Look in the table of contents for where the temperature limits are located and scroll to that page to find out the oven-safe temperatures for your collection.

Wrapping It Up

It’s excellent that Cuisinart pans can be used in the oven, but you need to take extra precaution when doing so as some pans cannot exceed 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

And, just because a lid comes with a pan that can withstand 500 degrees does not mean the lid can do the same, especially if it’s tempered glass. It’s essential to keep the manual that comes with your collection so you can ensure you take care of it properly.
