Casserole pan FAQs
Q: What is a casserole pan used for?
Sometimes referred to as a ‘Dutch oven’, a casserole pan is a cooking pot that can be used to make life simple. Casserole pans are made from cast iron, ceramic or stainless steel, meaning that you can be sure of superior cooking results.
Due to the properties of cast iron and steel casserole pans, heat is distributed evenly. By spreading heat uniformly, you can be sure that all ingredients are being cooked equally. This in turn makes a casserole pan ideal for one-pot wonders such as stews, casseroles, tagines and so much more.
The right casserole pan with a lid will take you from hob to oven with ease – leaving you with more time to entertain guests while your dish cooks.
Q: What can I make in a casserole pan?
Pretty much anything! A good-quality casserole pan is a kitchen staple due to its adaptability. No matter the flavour combinations you’re throwing together, a casserole pan is bound to give you the results you’re looking for.
Cook up a storm and make soups, casseroles, stews, pot roasts, curries and sauces with the help of a non-stick casserole pan. You can even push the boat out and make a mess-free lasagne or moussaka in our premium non-stick casserole pans with lids.

Q: What size casserole pan do I need?
The size of the casserole pan you’ll need depends on how many you’re cooking for and your personal preference.
For a couple, a 2.4-litre casserole pan is ideal. However, if you’re feeding a family of four, you can’t go far wrong with a 4.2-litre casserole pan with a lid. If you’ve got a larger family or simply like to batch-cook for ease, you may need one of our largest casserole pans.
If you tend to use a casserole pan for braising, then usually a shallow casserole pan will do the trick.
As a general rule, bigger is better when it comes to casserole pans. The more space that ingredients have in the dish, the better that the flavours will infuse and the more impressed your family and friends will be!
