Oval casserole - 15"
The oval casserole is a deep roaster ideal for Sunday family meals and big Holiday celebrations. Roast casseroles, pasta bakes, meat and poultry thanks to the large capacity, then bring directly to the dining table for a stunning presentation: the elegant, elongated shape means it'll fit easily.
Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hand-hammered and tin-lined by hand over fire so naturally low-stick. The riveted handles are cast of solid bronze, and the lid is crowned by Ruffoni's signature acorns with their leaves: beautiful finishes that make this piece a showstopper for oven-to-table dining and entertaining guests.
Made in Italy.
Recommended for use on gas stovetops, open flames (wood, charcoal, barbecue) and in the oven - electric cooktops also possible. Never heat the pot empty and do not exceed 220 C (430 F).
Use wood or plastic tools to avoid scratching the tin lining. Hand-wash with a soft sponge and mild detergent, and dry immediately with a soft cloth.
With use, copper develops a rich patina over time that many love and cherish. To restore a polished shine, use a good copper polish (like Ruffoni Cleaner) or salt with lemon juice/vinegar.
Tin will naturally discolor over time, but remain equally effective. Depending on use, the tin lining may eventually wear off and require retinning. Prolong the tin lining's life by not scratching it with metal tools, never overheating the cookware, and limiting the use of acidic ingredients.

This is the most beautiful roaster that I have ever seen. It is well worth the price tag. It is so beautiful that you almost don't want to use it. My only problem with it is polishing it. Once you use it, you have to polish it. It turns brown in parts. Its very heavy also. This is the best quality you can buy. I say buy it if you don't mind polishing it.
