Traditionally used in French kitchens for cooking and serving a whole trussed chicken, covered casseroles like this one make a spectacular cook-and-serve dish for any baked chicken recipe. Our popular rendition of the classic piece gets an elegant update with 10-karat gold painted by hand on its crowning rooster handle. The underside is left unglazed for maximum heat absorption. 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 lid should not be placed in the microwave. Hand-wash. 3-3/4 qt. cap.; 13-3/4” handle to handle, 11" x 8" x 8 1/4" high with lid. Made in France. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
