This versatile, medium-sized dish is ideal for vegetable and pasta bakes such as cauliflower or macaroni cheese and a multitude of savoury or sweet quiches, pies, tarts or crumbles.
The shallow elongated shape of this dish is perfect for producing a lovely browned crust. It can also fit easily under a grill or in the top of an oven when you are still cooking a meal and need space to keep finished dishes warm. Because it is made of cast iron, this sturdy dish can also be put directly on top of the hob for de-glazing sauces, which is not the case with many dishes made from other materials and it will stand the test of time. With its elegant shape, larger handles, vivid colours and heat-retaining qualities, you’ll discover that a Le Creuset Gratin Dish is the perfect ‘cook and serve’ dish. Many recipes can also be prepared in advance, chilled and then baked as needed – all in the same dish. It is also suitable for marinating because the enamel surface is non-reactive and will not stain or absorb flavours. If you already own a Le Creuset Casserole, this dish will complement it perfectly well too. You could for example roast a chicken in the casserole and serve it with Dauphinoise potatoes in the gratin dish. Or you could cook a seafood gratin in the dish and serve it with vegetable accompaniments in the casserole. The possibilities are endless.
