Incinerating Dishes are a shallow bowl like lab apparatus used for heating organic substances. The name has been derived from incinerate that means to cause to burn completely. The process of heating using an incinerating dish is called incineration. Incineration is a method used in waste treatment plants categorized as a thermal treatment system. Thereby, heating of substances with the help of an incinerating dish can be termed as, �incineration at a micro level.�

Incinerating dishes come in primarily two shapes � rectangular and circular. The sizes may vary according to the requirements in a laboratory. Porcelain glazed incinerating dishes can withstand a temperature of up to 1000oC. Thus, it is a very useful piece of lab apparatus when small amount of substances are required to be heated.
