I was introduced to Celebrating Home like most people, by an invitation to a home party. Celebrating Home sells quality ceramic dinnerware, candles and home decor items. Walking into the hostess’ home, I was delighted to see a wide variety products laid out. Aromatic candles burned, welcoming us into the living room. There were plates, bowls, wall décor and what my eye was truly drawn too, several baking dishes. We settled down and the representative passed around each product, talking about its positive attributes. By the end of the party, I just had to have the 9 x 13 inch Venetian Home Casserole Dish in spice.

Soon the order arrived at my door. The Venetian Home Casserole Dish has a shiny glazed finish over a beautiful, rich spice color. I was told that the finish would protect the dish from the issue of baked on residue. I was a bit skeptical. That was always a big issue in my kitchen. The representative also said that it should look new even after heavy usage. Viewing my beat up kitchen cookware, this claim really brought doubts into my mind.

Using the dish started that night. The dish performed well and made for a beautiful presentation on the table. After dinner came the time of truth; time to clean the dish. There was some baked on food and residue on the pan. I was a bit slow in getting to the pan, so the baked on residue was cold and pretty stuck by the time I got to it. Following the instructions that the representative gave, I filled the dish with water and let it set for just 5 minutes. The food residue simply wiped off the glazed surface.

Over eight months after purchasing the dish, it still looks brand new, even though I use it an average of three nights a week. The finish is shiny and it cleans as easy as that first time. I have dropped it, left it outside in the weather and otherwise abused the poor dish and it still looks new! This casserole dish has been used for baking, roasting and cooking. It is also dishwasher safe, so cleaning can be as simple as putting it in the dishwasher and turning it on. The Venetian Home Casserole Dish may have been a bit more expensive than other cookware out there, but the quality it brings makes that extra worthwhile.

I am not a Celebrating Home Representative, nor am I connected to the company in any way.
