Porcelain conducts heat gently and is easy to clean, which is why French cooks often roast meats and poultry in a deep porcelain dish rather than a metal roaster. Now the classic Apilco porcelain roaster gets an elegant update with a hand-painted rim in 10-karat gold. It’s perfect for vegetables, casseroles and fresh-fruit crisps, with an unglazed underside that increases the absorption of heat. Apilco, the renowned French manufacturer, has supplied chefs and home cooks with top-quality porcelain wares for over a century. Oven safe. Due to the gold detailing, the roaster should not be placed in the microwave. Hand-wash. 2-3/4 qt. cap., 13 1/2" x 8 1/2" x 2 1/4" high,. Made in France. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
