I don't think this is a problem particular to Visions cookware. Just
about anything will crack if it is unevenly heated. Unless your
casseroles are rated safe for stove-top use (I've heard of these, but
never seen them), they too will shatter under these circumstances.
My boyfriend (now my husband) had the same problem with a regular
casserole a few years ago when he was fixing me a Valentine's dinner.
