What does "fireproof" mean on UK fine china?
September 22, 2016 7:57 AM   Subscribe

I just bought a covered serving dish from a UK manufacturer of fine china. The dish itself, not the lid, says "fireproof," even though there is decoration and a gold rim on it. Of course I wouldn't put this on a stovetop, but does "fireproof" mean it can go in a medium oven? This newer item from the same pattern says "oven safe" to 200 C, but I don't know. Thanks!

According to this and this, that's exactly what it means. It does seem to be an antiquated term, which would jibe with the newer version reading "oven safe" instead.

Agree that it means it can go in the oven. Flameproof can go on the hob/stovetop.
