If you love fall color on your kitchen table you might do a double take at the Trivet Lid Stoneware Baker, essentially a casserole dish. Available at World Market for $24.99, the baker comes in a lovely rustic yellow color that is just perfect for the late fall season.
This baker can easily be envisioned on a Thanksgiving dinner table, holding the likes of a green bean casserole, peach strudel or any hot dish. The baker measures 12.2 inches across and 8.2 inches in length, a true family-sized dish, neither too large nor too small – and really great for easy handling.
The loveliness of this baking dish is the oak wood lid that comes with it and that doubles as a trivet. Simply lift the lid off and place the lid down on the table for quick and easy oven-to-table serving. If any leftovers remain in the dish, the trivet can be placed right back on top and the whole dish put into the refrigerator for easy storing.
The stoneware dish can be used in the oven up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Yet, while the stoneware dish can be heated, the oak lid cannot, so remember to take that off before popping the stoneware base into the oven.
The stoneware base is also dishwasher safe, but the lid is not and should be hand-washed only. The dish holds up to 70 ounces and is 3.3 inches deep – but its lovely rustic color that adds that special touch.
