One Feature I'd Never Thought About
Reviewed in the United States on January 21, 2019
I've been using my mother's Corningware casserole dishes for 25 years. By the way, the glass lids on the larger baking dishes never fit snugly, and would slip off at the slightest tilt. The old Corningware was also not microwaveable - got too hot while the food didn't. Since I retired last year, I've become passionate about cooking. Cooking is very enjoyable when you have the time to take your time! This Le Creuset Stoneware dish is beautiful to look at, and far more functional than my old casseroles. But the feature I never expected was the un-enameled bottom of the dish. I have literally had heavy, full casserole dishes slide out of my one-armed grasp while opening the refrigerator door. This dish is rough on the bottom, so VERY easy to hold. I would give it five stars, but it was made in China. I try to buy American or European products to support worker's rights over sweat shops. I thought I was buying French-made, but sadly not.
