My husband is the chef in the family and this was a gift to him. He loves it! It's much bigger than he thought, as it holds a casserole that can feed a large family and still allow for leftovers. The casserole bake evenly and the clean up is a breeze. The only problem? He wants more baking dishes from this line!
