I love all my Le Creuset casseroles, but I particularly like this one because of it's oval shape. It's particularly attractive on my dining room table. And I like when Chefs has a sale -- it makes it easier for me to justify the cost, although Le Creuset is worth every penny of it. Thank you.

This is my second Le Creuset purchase. The dijon yellow looks great -- perfect for oven-to-table use. It was a pleasant surprise to find that food turns out so much better than with the Pyrex I was using. It bakes even and food stays moist. It is very easy to clean. And I like this dish the best. I use it for everything from baking chicken to scalloped potatos. As with all Le Creuset, this dish cleans up beautifully. Most of the time I just scrape off any caked on food, rarely have I needed to soak this dish. I really like Le Creuset and this is one of my favorite dishes.

Review 3 for Le Creuset Stoneware 4-Quart Oval Casserole
I needed a larger casserole dish than my 2-1/2 or 3 qt. ones. When we have our whole family for family dinners I love to prepare a make-ahead dish large enough to serve everyone. This 4-qt. casserole fits the bill in every way!! I chose white because it goes with everything and most of my serving pieces. This stonewear holds heat better than others and it looks beautiful on the table. If you want a quality product that's easy to clean, and cooks evenly, don't look any further. This is the one for you!
