This looks likes a real bargain to me

Link here

I am fairly sure it is UK Quarts therefore 7.1 litres. Best I could find it at was 89 pound without checking P&P. Only bought it 10 minutes ago so cannot give an opinion yet. Bought a 3 litre one (cast iron) from Sainsbury on sale at 15 pound but struggled to fit a breast of Lamb and veg in. This is also the right shape to fit on my small wood burner while I go to the pub………..not that I like alcohol I just drink to help keep local pubs open!

 

(I just neatened the link.) TA.

Wow that is good, and a good make; AGA. Looks like a classy bit of kit.

That looks huge!  I used to cook breast of lamb and lots of veg in an oval 'self basting' roasting pan, perfect for three or four people.  How many are you feeding?!

I'll try that again!

I forgot to say, it is an elegant piece of equipment.  I wonder how heavy it is.

I'll try that again!

    I am feeding me! I am greedy!

But no doubt when my daughters come to see me I might let them use it and cook me something in it!

 I want it so I can load it up with veg and a joint (lamb breast is big but not massive on meat). And put it on the wood burner. I could I suppose freeze some for another day? But I do tend to be fairly hungary when I get back from pub.

Still surprised at the price? to good to be true? Seem to have sold loads and the feedback is good. So will see. Made in Germany so can't be total rubbish.

That explains it then...big_laugh 

It is an extraordinary price, well done for finding it.  I am lusting after it but would have no need of it.  I hope that your daughters will feed you.

I'll try that again!

Had some good bargains the other day in a cheap shop Homepride smokey paprika and tomatoe sauce 500grms 25p 6 months past its date………….don't care and taste superb.

Bearnaise Sauce in date just, 59p a litre or 2 for a pound. I made a mistake and bought 2, you only need a speck had to freeze most of the pack I opened in ice cube trays. I think I will have to give away the other litre as I can't see me ever getting round to it!

We bought a large terracotta oval dish in Intermarche while in France.

It is finished in the same way as Mason Cash dishes, but the size of the chicken roaster.

It was Euros 2.50 - amazing value.

Just wonder if it was a large pate dish that they'd used on the deli counter and then washed up, but if so, there were lots of them for sale ..... laugh

I missed a massive bargain at Morrison’s they reduced (not a sale) there Value mushy peas to 6p a tin. I preferred them to all the other brands. Went in the other day and they had put them back to 18p. I reckon cafe & chip owners were buying them as they haven't raised the price of all their other Value items that they had reduced (sage and onions stuffing 18p for instance). I had only bought about 15 tins at 6p…….. devastating

Tested and superb an excellent investment. The non stick on this casserole dish looks particularly good.I Got my measurements wrong when I measured the wood burner top it was only 15 centimeters wide while the casserole dish was 25. Anyway did a lamb breast Sunday removed some of the fat. Grilled for a bit to get rid of some more and create a bit of crackling. Retied it (keep meaning to put some stuffing in but forgot). Part cooked loads of veg in the microwave put that in and some weak gravy. Put it on the wood burner hanging of a bit but as it was hanging of the front still get heat on all of the casserole dish and then buggered of to the pub. When I got back everything was cooked perfect. Decided to take out the joint and roast for a bit longer while I had a shower yet again a superb scoff. That Lamb Breast is superb and at 2.40 a real bargain. Bought another today and 2 rabbit and ham pies they were 3.40p not sure they were particularly good value once I buy the Lamb breast!!

Top Bargain!!
