No kitchen is complete without a top-quality casserole dish in which to make favourite stews and comfort foods. Here, The Field rounds up our selection of the best casserole dishes on the market
Without doubt, casseroles are essential kit for any country kitchen, not simply for cooking up tasty game stews but for a wide array of delicious dishes. According to Field food writer Philippa Davis if one buys well, one should only need to buy once. “For me, a casserole dish needs to be sturdy enough to last a lifetime,” she says. “It must be suitable for the hob and oven, and be attractive enough to be presented at the table. Thinking of my collection, I seem to go for ones that are brightly coloured and often cast iron but there are lots to choose from.”
Here, we guide you through the The Field‘s favourites
