A crisp-topped seafood gratin or a traditional potato dauphinois with crunchy pieces around the edge is difficult to resist. Le Creuset’s 24 cm Oval Gratin Dish with its shallow shape and recognisable “eared” handles allows plenty of surface area to become quickly browned while the food underneath stays moist. This shape also allows the dish to go under the grill or in the top of the oven when you are cooking many other dishes. With its elegant, colourful design and heat retaining qualities, it really is the ideal “cook-and-serve” dish. The 24 cm size is perfect for two servings or side dishes. Le Creuset Stoneware Facts:

Baking, roasting, storage, or preparation, Le Creuset has a Stoneware dish to do the job. Easy to hold, sure grip handles, knobs and rims. Le Creuset is available in a wide range of colours that match our cast iron range and are equally at home in the kitchen or on your dining table. Stoneware Care and Use:
Do not use any piece on cooker hobs or any other direct heat source. When in the oven a maximum oven temperature of 260 degrees Celsius or 500 degrees Fahrenheit. We recommend using Le Creuset oven mitts for lifting hot dishes at all times. When using under a grill allow a gap between the rim of the dish and the heat source of no less than 6 ½ cm / 2 ½ inches. When using in a microwave handles may become hot during prolonged microwave use and especially if the handles are enclosed with cling film. Cover just the open top of the dish leaving the handles exposed. When using from the freezer to oven do not place a frozen dish of food in a pre-heated oven. Place the frozen dish in a cold oven and set the temperature, allowing the dish and oven to heat together. Before serving always check that the centre of the food is completely and uniformly hot. Cleaning:
Before use wash the dish in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. For most day-to-day cleaning, cool the dish for a few minutes then wash and dry as above, or wash in the dishwasher, allowing the full cycle to complete. Never leave a dish fully immersed in water. For removal of stubborn residues allow the dish to cool, fill with warm soapy water and allow it to soak for 10 – 20 minutes. Wash in the usual way using, if necessary, a plastic brush or scouring pad. Le Creuset Guarantee:
