I really, really like this baking dish. The color is especially cute during the Christmas holidays. I was planning to save it for the season, but decided to use it all year long. I like the handles on the ends-that is so helpful when removing from the oven. I use it 3-4 times a month and have had it for well over a year. It looks just as the day I bought it. Liked it so well, I bought the 9 inch square dish just like it!
