What ceramics are oven safe?
To avoid thermal shock in an oven, get a high-fire ceramic or medium-fire stoneware. Also turn off the oven and let it cool slowly before taking the pot out. (Never cook/eat off low-fire clays, especially earthenware. They aren’t dishwasher/microwave/anything safe and bacteria loves them).

Why do ceramic baking dishes crack?
Fine cracking on the surface of a ceramic dish’s glaze is known as “crazing.” If you have a new dish that you know was made with safe glazes, you can continue to use it.
