After reading the reviews, I hesitated in buying this but, it was exactly what I was looking for (a good size dish with a lid). I've had it now for 6+ mos, I use it at least once a week and it still looks absolutely brand new. No cracking in the finish, not even any crazing. It is heavy duty and super easy to clean.
Update: It's been 7 months, I use it at least 1x/week, and this casserole dish looks brand new. I could not be happier with this purchase.
Over 1 year later, still looks like I bought it yesterday. This is worth the $$ in every way.
