This is the big daddy to the petite Le Creuset au gratin dishes that I featured last week, and I’m happy to say that it’s been just as well looked after. Clearly the person who owned these dishes cared for them dearly, or just didn’t spend much time in the kitchen – kind of how my pots and pans would look after decades of not being used! There’s a small patch where the enamel has lifted off the cast-iron base, but other than that it’s immaculate. I don’t think Le Creuset make this particular shape of dish anymore, but a similar sized rectangular dish sells for R1150 new, so even though a few hundred Rand is a lot to pay it’s a relative bargain!
Dimensions: 37cm long (incl. handles) x 23cm wide x 5cm deep
