Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Fits into most microwave ovens
Glass dishes are perfect for cooking/warming up food in the microwave oven. This Libbey casserole fits into most of them and has a wide flat bottom, which helps the food to heat through evenly.
Pro Protects from spillage
The casserole dish by itself has a capacity of 3.2 quarts, and the domed glass lid adds to that even more. The lid seals very well and prevents spillage, especially when transferring the dish to/from the oven.
Pro Durable and easy to clean
Thick, heavy glass does not break or chip easily. This casserole can be soaked for a long time, or safely put in the dishwasher.
Pro All the layers in a dish are visible when cooking
The clear glass provides a perfect view of the food that you're cooking.
Con Unusually heavy for a glass dish
This casserole is made from thick glass, and together with the lid it weighs a hefty 6 lbs. Definitely not suitable for cooks with weaker wrists.
Con Only suitable for oven or microwave use
The Emile Henry Rectangular Baker can't be used to cook on the stovetops, a grill or under the broiler, only in the microwave and the oven.
