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.
