The innovative kitchen material that's simply brilliant™.
Your kitchen is all about creation, not compromise. That’s why we designed a line of bakeware with Creo Smartglass, an innovative material that produces applause-worthy results you’ll be proud to share.
We start with some of the strongest glass available, then temper it to be more resistant to temperature change, known as thermal shock. While most tops out at 350ºF/176ºC, all Smartglass pieces can go up to 450ºF/232ºC, which promotes the nutty caramelization that helps make your favorite dishes so special. The final touch is a beautiful yet durable ceramic exterior in picture-perfect colors that complement your creativity and help set the mood tableside.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Your kitchen is about creation, not compromise. That's why we've developed a line of bakeware and food prep tools that are made from Smartglass. But what does that mean and how exactly does Smartglass work, you ask. We know that you have a lot of questions for us so here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked.
What makes Smartglass Simply Brilliant™?
Smartglass is seriously revolutionary. Our team was uncompromising in developing an innovative material that's never been seen before, combining a tempered borosilicate glass interior with a ceramic exterior to create a collection that is as beautiful as it is versatile. Our line also moves from oven to table to freezer (and even to the dishwasher and microwave), flawlessly transitioning to help where you need it most. The result? A level of creativity and control to help your vision in the kitchen come to life.
Is Smartglass freezer, refrigerator, oven, microwave and dishwasher safe?
Absolutely, unabashedly yes to all' Pretty amazing, right? Just keep dishes up to 75% full if you plan on freezing as contents can expand.
Why are higher temperatures so important for bakeware?
We start with borosilicate glass, some of the strongest glass available. Then temper it to be even more resistant to thermal shock (or temperature change for us laymen). While most glass kitchenware tops out at 350°F/176°C, all Smartglass pieces can go up to 450° F/232°C once pre-heated, which helps the beautiful, nutty magic of caramelization that makes your baked dishes so special.
Can Smartglass be placed in the oven directly from the freezer?
While it's better to allow food to defrost fully before warming it, Smartglass has been designed to be highly resistant to thermal shock. Make sure that you only transfer foods to an oven that's been preheated to a maximum of 350° F/176°C. So, short answer: yes,just take some precautions.
What is the maximum oven temperature Smartglass can withstand?
A Smartglass dish that is at room temperature can be put in a pre-heated oven up to 450° F/232°C. If taken from the freezer, it can be put in to an oven pre-heated to 350° F/176°C.
Why does my oven have to be pre-heated first?
Many conventional ovens heat quickly and unevenly using both top and bottom heating elements, which could expose your Smartglass to direct flame and cause damage. Remember: slow and steady wins the race.
Why is glass better?
Glass heats more slowly than most metal bakeware like aluminum or carbon steel. More even heat lets you get the best results from your dishes, allowing for delectable browning, baking and roasting. Your favorite dishes will also stay warmer for longer, letting your guests linger at the dinner table for as long they like.
Are Smartglass products shatterproof?
Like any glass, Smartglass can break if dropped, struck against a hard surface or hit with heavy utensils. Thankfully, they'll last many years if you're careful and conscientious.
Are Smartglass products scratch resistant?
Ceramic is well-known for being a durable option in the kitchen, but you'll still want to be careful to avoid scratches. Keep your Smartglass items on a trivet or towel (and don't keep them on the stove top or rough surfaces). Sharp utensils are best left for your cutting board, not these beauties.
Can I cut my food directly in a Smartglass dish?
Best to avoid it, as it could mar the surface of your gorgeous new bakeware.
Some of my dishes are stained, what's the best way to clean them?
Annoying stains are generally easy to remove with a dish brush or gentle scouring pad (non-abrasive, please) and baking soda, but if they're particularly stubborn, try an old fashioned soak before a second scrub.
