I was looking forward to receiving this item but never got a chance. The flimsy box came with the casserole dish shattered in pieces. There was absolutely NO packing material in the box!! I called customer service and was on hold for 30 min to be told there was nothing they could do for me until they received it back. I will never order anything breakable from Sears delivery again!
I ordered this on line and got it the very next day when they said it would be a week. I was surprised until I picked it up and heard all the clanking and rattling of shattered glass. It was just shoved in a box not even big enough for the casserole dish and had NO packing. Very disappointed and returned. Didn't want to replace it. Seems Sears doesn't know how to mail breakable items.
I like it. Is is very nice looking and the design and handles make it easy to use. However, the lid does seem less substantial than my other casseroles and there is no rim around the edge of the lid, it just seem delicate like it could chip.
Also, NOTE IMPORTANT, this is NOT the 2.5 qt. It is mislabeled, it is 1.5 qt. That was a big problem, I really needed the 2.5 but by the time I realized why it seemed smaller than I thought I had used it. I like the size, I will just need to order a larger covered casserole.
