I'm a GLAD fan!
How many times have you taken your best Corning Ware casserole dishes to a pot luck dinner or to a church for a celebration or funeral and gotten home without your dish? I have done it many times. I had even begun buying casserole dishes at yard sales just for such occasions!
Now there is no need to do that anymore or to worry about losing expensive Corning Ware dishes and their lids. Now there is GLAD Oven Ware! It is the greatest thing since sliced white bread!
What's that you say? You've never heard of Glad Ovenware? Take another look at the photo at top of this blog. That is GLAD Ovenware! It can go straight from the freezer to the oven (up to 400 degrees!) When finished, it can go with it's tight fitting lid anywhere you want to go with it. I have not had one single spill in my car since I began using GLAD Ovenware with it's matching lid. It is so much easier to transport, not having to deal with foil or plastic wrap over a glass casserole dish!
I've taken it to parties, funerals, pot luck dinners and to sick friends homes. I always tell them if I don't wash it up and bring it home at the time, that they can get it back to me later. That is the last time I think about it! It is reasonably priced so that I don't mind not getting it back and I certainly don't mind replacing it because it makes my life so much easier! I do use it at home too. In fact as I type the house is filling with the aroma of homemade Chicken Pot Pie baking away in my 9 x 12 Glad Ovenware pan.
As with most things, there are some cautions when using this product. You can't have the heat over 400 degrees. It isn't a hard plastic, it is sort of flexible and as such you have to put it on a cookie sheet for a foundation while it cooks. I wouldn't recommend allowing children to help with removing it from the oven as the potential for spilling is greater with them as they might try to pick up the "pan" without the cookie sheet. Also, the lid shouldn't be put on until the food has cooled slightly.
You can buy this product at any retailer, even Amazon.com!
I do not get any special consideration for my blog about this product. I just like it and like to pass on my finds to my friends.
Blessings and Happy Cooking!
