I love the color of this dish! I have not cooked in it yet. I am replacing my glass baking dishes with other materials, and of course I had 10 x 13 dishes in Pyrex. But as I have bought smaller sizes I find them better for the everyday cooking for my household of 2. This one will probably be used to take a dish to a family gathering. I look forward to that, and know I will be proud to display my food in this dish! Failing that, I might give it to my daughter who makes a mean macaroni and cheese! wouldn't that look great in this!
