I think you can use any kind of pot you want, as long as it is oven safe. Check with the manufacturer of your kitchenware and also know the maximum oven-safe temperature it can reach. Check for plastic parts too, especially on your pot's lid - the actual vessel may be safe to put in the oven but the lid may not be due to a plastic handle or glass that isn't oven-safe.

thank you! ended up using a dutch oven, was too nervous to use my regular pots that have glass lids..

Emily, that was a good idea. Not all glass lids fare well in the oven, as my dear father learned the hard way when making a big pot of beef burgundy for a party last year. (It shattered, ruining his beautiful stew.) ;o)
