We’ve been using this casserole for 2 weeks now and so far we’re loving it. First off is the size, which is the reason we had to buy this. For those looking for a big enough casserole, this Chef’s Classics casserole fits the bill. In a frame spanning a diameter of 24cm, it can be filled to the brim with 4.7 liters. That capacity should be more than adequate for any stew or soup without it being oversized.
We have no complaints with how it looks either. It is an attractive piece of cookware. It is also very lightweight compared to the more traditional caldero that we are used to. The exterior has an easy-to-clean silicon painting, which is both beautiful and practical. Not to mention the stay-cool handles and knob. Another nice feature is the glass lid. I have this habit of “over checking” when I’m cooking and this lets me check while the pot stays covered so the simmering is uninterrupted.
The interior is what has made me fall in love with it. If you’re used to having your food stuck at the bottom of your caldero when cooking, you’ll appreciate the DuPont Teflon® coating inside. Made with a material that lets it heat up quickly, it’s also very economical. The only thing I’m not sure of is if it can be used in the oven to make casserole. Hmmmm…All in all, it’s a great buy at 1,449.75Php. Looks classy, durable, easy to clean and cooks my humba to perfection! Tried with a kilo of pork hocks last weekend and the Chef’s Classics Daisy Series Casserole cooked it with ease and a whole lot of room to spare.
