    1. I had no idea, either, until I got the heart dish. Here is a little information about baking in the dishes from the Wilton Armetale website: You can cook, bake, broil, grill, chill and serve in almost all of our products. We suggest that you put a thin coat of oil on your piece before doing any this to keep the piece from staining. The only pieces you can not use for cooking are pieces with black paint in the cooking surface of the pieces like the bread trays. Those pieces are only for serving.
