This rectangular baking dish is a functional and stylish: The simple, yet classic shape of the piece is finished with modern lipped edges. It has an extremely hard glaze that is resistant to shock, scratches and chips, so you can cut and serve without worrying about scratching the interior. The thermal properties retain the hot-or-cold temperature, and it can be used directly from the freezer to the oven or microwave, which is essential for popping a pre-prepared lasagna or casserole. After you're done, just toss it in the dishwasher. Emile Henry cookware and tableware has been built to perform since 1850. But it's the luscious colors and designs that keep us craving. Crafted in Marcigny, France, from the local Burgundian clay, the dishes are hand-dipped in a rich glaze that resists scratching. Many are based on designs from the French company's archives and have the look and feel of French country pottery from the late 19th century. The ovenware is not only strong enough to withstand the abrupt temperature changes of freezer-to-oven cooking but is also beautiful enough to join the dinner party.
