The first one looks nice after continuous use since I purchased it 1 year ago. The dish roasts vegetables well.
This dish is nice but I really did not pay attention to details. Not your fault but mine. I was expecting a ceramic dish. I was trying to replace my Chantal casserole dish that I broke. It was my favorite. So I was a little disappointed when I received my order.
It will make a nice sized pan of lasagne and is large enough for roasting. Looking forward to using more!
I got a second one of these because I like the 1st one so much! The second one can be used as a dome over a roast, and the bump-and-hole design makes it sit securely & the weight makes it practically air-tight in the 'fridge. These do heat up and stay hot for a long time-Adjust baking time, know it will keep cooking long after the oven is off. Makes a great roast, stays moist if you use both. Big, heavy weight pan, easy clean, best quality of any of my cookware: highly recommend!
I gave my daughter this pan at least 20 years ago. It is like the day she got it. She says if the house was on fire she would grab her dogs and this pan and run!
