Oven-proof labels

Have you noticed that labels saying "this cookware is not dishwasher-safe" aren't oven-proof? I have.

I managed to burn a label off, by leaving it on a dish when cooking in it. Of course, I then didn't realise that the dish wasn't dishwasher-safe, and it had to be thrown away after I put it through a washing cycle.

There must be a trick to this, but I haven't discovered a single rule that I can use to say "this type of dish is never safe for dishwashers".


  1. I think the best solution is to only buy stuff that's dishwasher safe. Even if you don't have one (yet).

  2. If it's not dishwasher safe, you can bet your last unit of currency that it is not oven safe, either.
