This is very dubious. Superglue is probably the best candidate, but the
heat stress in the microwave (plus the possibility that the glue itself may
be subject to microwave heating) is likely to result in failure after some
fairly short period of time. Add to this the possibility you will forget
and put the item in the regular oven, and then consider the liklihood that
whenever and wherever the joint fails, it will probably fail as you lift the
lid off and and possibly drop to the floor and shatter--it sounds like a bad
idea to try to fix it.
Replacement lids are obtainable, at a considerable price of course--I have
found it cheaper just to get a new dish, especially at a flea market, garage
sale, or the salvation army store.
No, not a kiln. You'd have to heat the whole thing and it would melt and
distort before you got to the proper temperature to fuse the handle back
perhaps a hot torch would be better.
Yeah a kiln would really make a mess. What you need is an
acetylene torch to get a high enough temperature. You need
to heat both parts and then heat the part that snapped off
to red heat and starting to melt. However, unless you have
done glass work, you can be assured that it will turn out to
be a mess.
Loctite 349 Impruv is supposed to be the best adhesive for glass. You
apply the adhesive, hold (clamp) the parts together, then set the
piece in the sun (it cures using UV). Although this may the best
adhesive for glass, it has a few toxcity concerns and may be difficult
to find in your area. Actually, my first thought is to replace the
