Baking and serving, with pie as the obvious candidate, are the designated purposes for this French dish, though it’s amenable to other foods, even unbaked. A new addition to Made In’s line of handsome yet utilitarian porcelain, it’s a standard 9 inches in diameter, inside, rim to rim, and 10.7 inches wide overall. The capacity is six cups. You select a stripe of blue or red on the edge. Give a homemade pie in it and let the recipient keep the dish.
