What is better, a glass pie plate or metal

If I freeze a pie in a glass pie plate I am afraid of putting it right into the oven and having it break. Is it really safe to do this and not having it break?

I wouldn't do it right from the freezer.

Let it get to room temp before going in the oven.

I like glass better than metal.

I also would recommend letting at least some of the chill dissipate from any type of pie dish before putting it into the oven. As an avid pie baker, my current favorite pie plates are stoneware (I love Chantal--their pieces are perfect). I've gotten rid of all of my glass and metal pie plates, and I don't miss the ugly baked-on spots or the potential for rust one bit! Good luck...

We like our stoneware pie dishes also. I think they are Emile Henry.

I prefer stoneware as well. I bought mine several years ago from Southern Living at Home. At the time, it was explained to me that the underside of the pie dish was unglazed, which prevents the pie crust from becoming soggy. I don't know if that's true or not, but I've never had a problem with it, so it works for me! However, I would never put it in the freezer...

Fiestaware pie plates are great too. This is what I use. Unless you are freezing in metal pie plates, I would not go directly from freezer to oven. I am afraid they would crack and your pie would be ruined.

I never would of thought of stoneware for baking. Where do you buy yours as I know nothing about stoneware. Thanks, maybe I will try these for a pie pan. Thanks
