This is the deepest casserole dish I've ever been able to find. Perfect for heavily layered lasagna. Emile Henry makes high quality bakeware. I own this, two fluted pie dishes and a loaf sized baker. Love them. Always wait until your dish has cooled before cleaning, as it is clay and may crack if not cared for properly. It will stay beautiful, cook your food evenly, and last a lifetime and more. Makes a great gift.
