Oven dishes - a must-have in your kitchen
What makes a perfect oven dish?
Oven dish often called a casserole, probably from the archaic French word casse meaning a small saucepan, is a large, deep dish used both in the oven and as a serving dish (for this reason it's sometimes equipped with small handles). It is one of the essential kitchen tools and it can be used for various purposes. You can use a baking dish for sweet and savoury dishes, for desserts and dinner dishes, vegetables, meat or fruit meals. It can serve as a substitute for a roasting pan or even a baking pan so make sure you get yourself a high-quality oven dish that will serve you for ages and that will look good on your kitchen worktop.
Oven dishes are made from heatproof materials such as glass, metal or earthenware that can withstand temperatures of 250°C, and are suitable for use in the oven.
