Due to it being a gift I have not used it, however, I think this pie dish is really pretty and it looks very durable, furthermore If I had this pie dish I probably wouldn't use it, because it's so pretty! I may make a pie in it and give it to my friend that way!
I was very pleased with the look and quality of the pie plate. It was something that would probably cost 3 x the price I paid in any store. It was a gift and my friend said that she would enjoy using it and cherish it for many years.
