Beautiful dish from Le Creuset's 'Patisserie Range' which has a plethora of uses apart from pie making but it really does show off a home-made apple pie complete with the cute little pie bird
, or crumble to its absolute best.
I often use mine for simply oven crisping a handful of parsnip & carrot sticks.
COLOUR: VOLCANIC with CREAM interior.
MATERIAL : STONEWARE
Approximate measurements, based on my own dish:
* 21 cm external base diameter, gently flaring out to 24 cm diameter at the attractive, bevelled rim
* Approximate overall depth - 4.25 cm
* Serves four people comfortably, six if smaller portions are acceptable.
The dish is easy to use and clean. I fill mine with hot, soapy water for about 15 minutes and give it a quick rub with a plastic brush inside and out especially around the bevelled rim to shift the more stubborn baked-on food remains such as toffee-apple glaze then pop it in the dishwasher.
Le Creuset embossed on the unglazed external base, along with 1.6L, this useful dish comes packed in a cardboard sleeve.
