Ceramic cookers are made of various materials and the use of the term “ceramic” is quite loose in the industry. Materials include “space age” ceramics, terra cotta, refractory materials and portland cement mixed with lava rock.
The walls of ceramic cookers walls are heavy and thick with the thickness varying depending on the maker.
The temperature tolerated by these materials varies, but most makes can easily withstand cooking temperatures up to 1000 degrees. However, you should follow the instructions that come with your particular cooker.
But this allows you to sear your steaks at 700? or more, smoke your barbecue at 200? or less, and roast and bake at all temperatures in between. Ceramic cookers will maintain the temperature you set due to their good insulating characteristics, and perform well at high and low temperatures!
