REVIEW for the older version - 19 cm RECTANGULAR DISH
on 28 January 2008
PERFECT for an individual Shepherd's Pie or Lasagne with bubbling melted cheese on top because this smart little STONEWARE baking dish can even go under the grill.
◄ Apologies. Amazon has amalgamated products and this review now appears as a duplicate.
I have 45 of these dishes in various colours & sizes, dotted around various locations. ►
Approximate size (based on my own):
♦ Inside base measurement - 15.5 cm x 10 cm, which gently tapers to 17.5 cm x 12.5 cm at the top.
♦ Depth approximately 4 cm.
♦ Longest point, includingthe handles :21.5 cm.
Mine has 'LE CREUSET, FRANCE, 19 cm' embossed on the base but later dishes are made elsewhere and vary in size (*).
Easy to clean by hand, although a little soaking and a rub with a plastic brush may be required for the more stubborn baked-on food remains.
This versatile dish is also oven/microwave/freezer safe, but Le Creuset STONEWARE items cannot be used on a direct heat source.
Full STONEWARE use/care instructions supplied on the cardboard presentation sleeve.
(*) The newer models, i.e. the Chinese-made versions of this dish are very slightly different - '18 cm x 12 cm'/capacity 0.6L.
This can make a slight difference to the stack-ability if in possession of a mixed collection as I found when I recently replaced one of my French-made (poterie) versions!
