It's a beautiful stoneware bowl. Like all Le Creuset stoneware, the finish is flawless inside and out. Since it's stoneware it holds temperature well which makes it a great serving bowl. It's non reactive which makes it ideal for food storage. You can bake/roast in it too, in fact I've used it for baked pasta. I like it so much I'm ordering the large and small one to make a set.
