Casserole pans are necessary elements of every cook's arsenal. I am in the habit of only using cast iron pans when baking casseroles, but stainless steel has a lot to offer too. I just spotted this All-Clad Shallow Casserole Pan and knew it was a winner right away.
This All-Clad 2 1/4 quart casserole pan is made from 18/10 stainless-steel, and it has an aluminum core for quick and even heat distribution. Move from the stovetop to the oven or table using the sturdy riveted handles. If you are popping it in the oven, it's safe for temperatures up to 550 degrees.
Stove-to-oven-to-table-to-fridge (and back to oven and table) dishes like this are pretty awesome. You can sauté vegetables or bake your favorite casserole in this stainless steel pan. We love that it's made from aluminum and stainless steel for better heat distribution when baking; that way our casseroles come out perfectly. The casserole pan comes with a lifetime warranty and is dishwasher safe.
