Le Creuset Rectangular Roaster 2.5qt
Le Creuset Rectangular Roaster 2 1/2-Quart 8"x11
Presenting your favorite roast meats, pastas or desserts has never been
simpler with Le Creuset's bakeware. The Roasters are available in 8" x 12" and
10" x 14" sizes and feature wide shallow shapes to allow maximum exposure of the
food to the heat source.
The wide, shallow shape of these pieces exposes
the maximum surface area of the food to the heat source, whether it be all
around heat in the oven or under the broiler. They can also be used on the
stovetop for frying. For best results, in cooking roast meats, poultry or
poaching fish the dish should be filled almost to the brim, so the top browns
and crisps quickly, leaving the food beneath moist.
These dishes are
ideal for making pasta dishes such as lasagna and baking delicious pies and
desserts such as fruit cake and gingerbread. Great for pastry, the cast iron
spreads the heat evenly and well with no soggy middles to pies or tarts. Also
excellent for marinating - the surface will not spoil or discolor. They make
elegant serving dishes, too.
