The Pillivuyt Quartet Extra Large 16.5 x 12 x 2.5 - 4 quart Rectangular Roaster can multi-task as a baker or roaster and the extra deep sides prevent splattering in the oven. This large roaster is great for roasting vegetables, game hens, or your favorite casserole ¿ the wide rims give this dish an appealing shape and make it easy to lift. The Quartet Rectangular Roaster also comes in a large three quart size. The Quartet look is based on a dish towel that was popular in the Berry region of France at the turn of the last century; the design has a pleasing rumpled look. The rustic lines of this 100 year old pattern are maintained in Pillivuyt's Quartet collection which includes plates in five sizes, rimmed and un-rimmed bowls in four sizes, platters in three sizes, roasters in three sizes and many other pieces. The walls of these dishes, as in all Pillivuyt items, are created with a perfectly uniform thickness for exceptionally even and efficient heat conduction allowing it to retain heat at the table throughout your meal. Pillivuyt porcelain is fired at 2550 degrees Fahrenheit, so you can safely put any dish under the broiler for that final browning or finishing touch.
