The Le Creuset Heritage Casserole Dish is a rectangular stoneware dish that serves as a smart solution for a variety of recipes, as well as common kitchen tasks like marinating and breading. Its deep side walls create ample cooking space for casserole fillings, while its dense stoneware construction maintains proper hot and cold temperatures for dishes prior to serving and during meals. The impermeable exterior enamel resists scratches and stains, while the nearly-nonstick glazed interior easily releases foods for quick cleanup. With its secure lid, the Heritage covered casserole dish is a convenient choice for transporting dishes to parties, potlucks, and picnics. Not only does the stoneware lid provide an effective moisture and heat lock for the dish, but it prevents spills and protects contents until they are ready to serve. Adding to the versatility of this classic design, it’s also useful as a marinating dish for lengthy cuts of meat before grilling or roasting in the oven.
