This 11-inch rectangular lasagna baker can go from oven, to table, to freezer, to dishwasher. A rim that runs around the entire dish catches bubbling tomato sauce and cheese. Manufactured by Pillivuyt, a trusted and innovative company that has produced porcelain wares since 1818, the baker is glazed and fired at very high temperatures (1400°C/2552°F) to create a non-porous exterior. This prevents lingering bacteria as well as the transfer of unwanted tastes or odors. The porcelain is resistant to scratching and chipping, and retains heat to help keep your lasagna warm while being served at the table.
The baker can withstand temperatures ranging from - 30°C/-22°F to +350°C/662°F, so it can be placed in the freezer and go directly in the oven or microwave. Dishwasher safe.
In 1818, Jean Louis Richard Pillivuyt founded his porcelain factory in the central French village of Foëcy. This location was ideal for its neighboring forests and water, and the proximity to Limoges where kaolin deposits had been recently uncovered. When this natural resource was discovered, Europeans had found the secret ingredient required to create porcelain, after envying and coveting a material that had been exclusive to China for over 300 years. The porcelain business remained in the Pillivuyt family for over 127 years, until longtime customer Alfred Simon purchased the brand in 1945 and took over as General Manager, implementing the latest technologies and manufacturing processes. These changes improved uniformity and productivity, while the technique for creating porcelain wares remained much the same. The casting and firing process for these porcelain dishes involves over 10 steps and takes place over the course of several days or weeks, depending on the item. Prototypes are handmade in plaster following precise computer models to calculate the shrinkage that will occur during the drying and firing process. These rectangular baking pans are cast and pressed through pressure casting, an efficient technology that can produce several pans in a day. After the pans are dried and have gone through the first firing to remove all the remaining water in the clay, they are hand dipped in glaze and go through a second firing that lasts up to two days.
