Crofton Ceramic Baking Dish Set – The Design

This baking dish set is compatible with most kitchen appliances. It is compatible with the following:

The exterior is either red or turquoise, and the interior is white. For a delicate touch, the bottom of the baking dish has a mixture of flowers etched into the bakeware.
No matter what color you choose, the baking dish set is rectangular with a ruffled rim. The ruffled top gives each baking dish a classier look. This sophisticated look allows bakers to use this baking dish as a serving dish. You can go from oven to table with the Crofton Ceramic Baking Dish Set.

The ruffled rims do not hinder properly storing the Crofton set. This baking dish simply nests inside each other for easy storage.
The Crofton Ceramic Baking Dish is made of a glazed ceramic material. Ceramics are beneficial to bakers. Ceramic bakeware is used because it makes baking easy and painless.
The ceramic glaze provides a non-stick surface for baking. When baking casseroles, bakers do not have to worry about food sticking to the baking dish. The non-stick surface also makes cleaning up easier. Food easily slides out of ceramic baking dishes.
This ceramic glaze is stain-resistant and scratch-resistant; it acts as a barrier between the food and the ceramic core. Sharp utensils can not scratch the Crofton Ceramic Baking Dish. Stains can not penetrate the ceramic glaze; you only need to soak it in warm water to remove food.
