Can you put porcelain in a preheated oven?
No! Porcelain is a clay mixture fired in a kiln that is commonly called "china" because the mixture/process was first invented in that country. It is delicate and contains metallic elements that will heat up quickly and break the porcelain when in contact with heat. Also, porcelain china should not be used in a microwave because of the metal elements.

The difference between porcelain cookware and stainless steel cookware?
Porcelain cookware cannot endure direct contact with heat especially with high heat. It might melt if being exposed to high heat for a long period of time. It is better used on low heat. If being dropped, porcelain cookware might chip or crack. It's not an ideal to use porcelain cookware on glass cooktop as it might melt if being exposed to high heat and will cause damage to the cooktop. Porcelain cookware comes in an assortment of colors and patterns. On the other hand, stainless steel cookware can resist to high heat. It can be exposed to heat for a long period of time. It doesn't get chipped or cracked if being dropped. It can be used on any kind of cooktop and in the oven. Stainless steel cookware only comes in metal-colored.

How does the vacuum in the flask used to store liquid nitrogen prevent heat transfer?
I believe that since the vacuum is absent of matter, there is not matter to which the heat of the outside of the container can pass on its heat. In other words, if there was air inside the tude instead of a vacuum, the hotter outside of the container would make the air hot inside the walls of the container, so thus the hot air would make the inside of the container hot too. This is like a chain of heat, as the heat moves from matter to matter, bbut the vacuum limits the matter in the chaing, so less heat is passed onto the nitrogen.
