IKEA’s website allows customers to see if specific kitchenware items are designed to be oven safe, by looking through bowls, we can see that the IKEA website only lists their bowls as being microwave and dishwasher safe.

Are IKEA’s Mugs Oven Safe?
No, IKEA’s range of mugs are constructed from either glass or porcelain. Of course, porcelain cannot handle the intense temperatures of an oven. A quick look through the IKEA website revealed that even IKEA’s glass mugs are not listed as oven-safe.

Are IKEA’s Pots Oven Safe?
This depends on the materials that your pot is constructed from. IKEA stocks a wide variety of pots constructed from various materials.
Pots that are made from a mix of steel and enamel are listed as being safe for oven use, as well as safe for use on gas burners, cast iron burners, and induction burners.
IKEA also stocks pots that are constructed from stainless steel and cast irons. These can also be used within the oven, and on the vast majority of cooktops.

IKEA’s kitchen pans are constructed in much the same way that IKEA pots are, from stainless steel and aluminum.

IKEA’s plastic food containers are not oven-proof, as plastics can melt at high temperatures. Instead, these containers are microwavable, but must only be used up to 100 degrees. The lid should also be left ajar to release steam during cooking.
Are IKEA Resealable Bags Oven Proof?
No, IKEA’s resealable food containment bags are not oven-safe, as they are thin, and can only handle temperatures up to 50 degrees. As a result, they also cannot be used in the microwave. However, the IKEA website does list these bags as being freezer safe.
