Comments: Emile Henry has been making ceramic cookware in Marcigny, France, for 150 years, from Burgundy's rich clay. While utilizing traditional techniques, the company's artisans make use of technological advances in production and firing that make their products resistant to mechanical and thermal shock.
This 3-quart round casserole and lid efficiently conducts and retains heat. Like all Emile Henry pieces, it can go directly from the freezer to the oven (up to 500°F), be used under the broiler, in the microwave, and is dishwasher-safe. It cannot be used on the stovetop. The translucent glaze resists scratches and chips. The casserole is 100% natural and is lead and cadmium free.
