Le Creuset Cast Iron Signature Oval Baker, 3QT
Did someone say casserole?
Bet you’ve never met a baking dish like this one: It’s built from cast iron and finished off with an enameled glaze all over—so it heats evenly and holds onto that heat for longer, then cleans up easy right after, no seasoning needed. It’ll bake up a mean casserole or roast meat and veg, of course. Plus, you can take it to the stovetop when you need to. The wide and shallow shape gives your ingredients plenty of exposure to heat, perfect for when a crispy topping is what you’re after. This one manages to be chip and crack resistant, too. (Bonus points for those loop handles that make lifting it a breeze.)
