Lakeland 26cm Midnight Blue Shallow Round Cast Iron Casserole 5 "Best Shallow Casserole" Mrs Green 25 January 2018 I've looked at this shallow casserole for ages and finally succumbed and am so glad I did. It is easy to clean, a lovely colour, and can be taken to the table. It is heavy but not too heavy even with contents. It has large handles to make it easy to carry around. The base size is right for hob rings and it fits easily into the oven. If ever my larger casseroles need replacing I will definitely go for the larger casseroles from Lakeland as they appear to be just as good as the French makes I have. A great buy.
