To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I used it only twice. After the second use I put it in the dishwasher and found that it had broken in half during washing. It was placed carefully in the dishwasher, so I can only conclude that there was a flaw in its manufacture--and it's too late to return it. I'll never buy Le Creuset again.
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!
What can I say? I've used other brands of stoneware and was never too impressed. Le Creuset is really the best I know so far and I'm still looking for something of the same quality that will not brake the wallet. But every other one I've had, even ones made in Europe, get cracking with time. Le Creuset is the only one that does not. So, here I am, again.
