Pyrex Casserole Dish
Advantages: durable, non scratch, dishwasher safe
I'm not a terribly good cook nor do I spend a lot of time in the kitchen but I do like to cook the occasional casserole or bake and, for that, I needed a decent casserole dish to cook it in. Pyrex was always my first choice as it was always what my parents had used and it had worked well and proved very durable. Pyrex is made from a borosilicate glass with high thermal shock resistance technology.
I actually purchased a set of three casserole dishes of different sizes from Tesco for £14.99 which I thought a fantastic price. The three dishes have varying capacities - 0.75l, 1.25l and 2.0l - so I can pick whichever one best suits my needs. The dishes are round with moulded handles on two sides and have a lid with handles that fits on top.
The bowls are a nice shape and fit neatly in the oven. The pyrex is also microwave and dishwasher safe and can be placed in the fridge and freezer. The set also came with a 10 year guarantee, which to me spoke volumes for their durability.
I have used these a number of times and have found them to be fantastic. They heat up nicely and also have a good capacity for the food so, although the lid does not hold tightly in place, there is minimal spillage. They are easy to use and clean, despite not being completely non-stick. They clean up well in the dishwasher and are scratch resistant so look good as new after every wash. I do find that they can get quite dirty after use and can blacken slightly is any of the cooking liquid burns on (often it splatters on the lid and does this). This usually takes a but of soaking and scrubbing to remove but, as I say, they are scratch resistant so this does not cause any damage.
Overall, excellent quality casserole dishes that are versatile and durable. Highly recommended.
Summary: good casserole dish
