It will work if, the dryer plug you are using is the same electrical voltage as the oven. If your oven is electric, it is 220 - 240v, if gas, 110 - 120v. A 220 plug has either 3 or 4 prongs, depending on your appliance being a 3 or 4 wire system. A 4-wire system will have a red wire (110v power), black wire (110v power), white wire (neutral/common), green wire (ground). A 3-wire system will be missing the white or green wire. 110v system (gas oven or dryer) will have a black (power), white (neutral), green (ground). It will work, but be limited. Dryer circuits are 30A, whereas oven circuits are 50A. You cannot just upgrade the dryer wiring to 50A as it is not rated for that and will start a fire. To use the oven properly you need to install a properly rated circuit. Do it right or don't do it at all. Negligence is fatal with electricity.

Technically you could put them in the oven, but if you are planning to turn the oven on, I wouldn't recommend it.If the dishes are plastic, as most dishes labeled 'dishwasher and microwave safe' are, then they will melt if used in the oven. A microwave is safe as its only a few minutes, and a dishwasher uses hot water.

Can you put a glass pan in an oven?

No, absolutely not. If you put glass in the oven, it will crack and turn brown. It will ruin the pan, the food, and the oven. NEVER PUT GLASS IN THE OVEN. * * * * * * * * * * I don't know how old this post is, but actually, you CAN use glass such as Pyrex or Corning. I use a gas oven and that's all i use. I no longer have metal pans. Just check the "User Guide" that comes with your dish/pan. If it says it's safe to use in oven, you're fine. ************** It can. My mom used even a safe to use in oven glass pot and it exploded.

When baking in a pressure cooker should we put rubber gasket?

You should not use a pressure cooker to bake in . You could use the bottom if you had to, but it will not build pressure without the gasket and the gasket should not be put in the oven. The gauge will not survive in the oven either. The older lids also had a lead blow-out plug and the newer ones, a rubber plug. Both will melt out in the oven.
