“During grilling season, the Le Creuset rectangular dish with a platter lid (see ‘K,’ below) is especially useful. I marinate my meat in the casserole and then have a clean platter to put the grilled meat on. I’ve also filled the casserole with ice and used it to serve shrimp or fruit and veggies — I’ve even put sliced cheeses, tomatoes, and onions (all the burger fixings) on top, and it keeps them chilled. It’s a great piece; really versatile.”
