I received some Le Creuset stoneware baking dishes a few years ago, and since then, I have been hooked. My “collection” has now grown to 11 pieces:
I LOVE them because I have been able to cook just about everything with them, and the results are always fantastic, whether I use them for baking brownies or casseroles, or even broiling steak. And they are super easy to clean, which is great for me since I live in a small apartment without a dishwasher. Here is a chicken I roasted the other day in a large oval dish I found on sale last October:

Almost as good as new! I love this dish so much I even used it to make lasagna a few days later.
Both are great meals for warming up in cold weather!
