Quick! Nordstrom Slashed the Price of Our Editors' Favorite Casserole Dish
The all-mighty casserole dish is one of the most timeless, versatile, and fuss-free pieces of kitchen equipment you can buy. We've tested dozens over the years, and our favorite is the Great Jones Hot Dish thanks to its looped handles, tall sides, and naturally slick coating. It's so functional, the cute colors and chic design are just a bonus. If you're looking to upgrade your bakeware with a joyful and functional piece, you're in luck, because this editor-loved dish is currently over 25% off during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
To buy: Great Jones Hot Dish, $56 (originally $75) at nordstrom.com
Whether you use it to roast a chicken, bake a batch of brownies, or freeze a tray of lasagna, a quality casserole dish can have endless applications and when treated right, it can last for generations. That doesn't mean you shouldn't splurge every once in a while. This option from Great Jones holds 4 quarts of food and is oven-safe up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The ceramic construction conducts heat quickly and retains it evenly, so food in the center of the dish gets cooked at the same speed and temperature as food in the outer corners. Large looped handles make transferring it in and out of the oven easy, even while wearing thick oven mitts.
Looking to meal prep quick and easy dinners? You've come to the right place. This strong and durable dish is safe to use in the freezer and the microwave. That means you can easily freeze a big batch of lasagna then reheat when needed. In fact, our editors put that feature to the test and didn't notice any difference in quality when using the Hot Dish to bake a lasagna fresh versus baking one that had been stored in the freezer overnight. Although it's not completely nonstick, the ceramic stoneware is naturally slick, so even crispy bits of lasagna slide right off. Best of all, we love that it's dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup, too.
Great Jones' lineup of functional bakeware also includes sheet pans, bread pans, and cake pans, so the Hot Dish is just one piece of a stellar collection. If you're looking to replace your old bakeware with something new, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great place to start.
