why this product

This 13-inch rectangular roaster with handles easily makes the transition from oven, to table, to freezer, to dishwasher. Manufactured by Pillivuyt, a trusted and innovative company that has produced porcelain wares since 1818, the roaster is glazed and fired at very high temperatures (1400°C/2552°F) to create a non-porous exterior. This prevents lingering bacteria as well as the transfer of unwanted tastes or odors—your strawberry rhubarb cobbler won’t have the garlicky flavor of the roast chicken from last week. The porcelain is resistant to scratching and chipping, and retains heat to help keep dishes warm while being served at the table. 

use & care

The roaster can withstand temperatures ranging from - 30°C/-22°F to +350°C/662°F, so it can be placed in the freezer and go directly in the oven or microwave. Dishwasher safe.

production & design

In 1818, Jean Louis Richard Pillivuyt founded his porcelain factory in Foëcy, a prime location for its neighboring forests and water, and the proximity to Limoges where kaolin deposits had just been discovered—Europeans had finally found the secret ingredient required to create porcelain, after envying and coveting a material that had been exclusive to China for over 300 years. The business remained in the family for over 127 years, until Alfred Simon, a longtime customer, purchased the brand in 1945 and took over as General Manager, implementing the latest technologies and manufacturing processes. Still, the technique for creating porcelain wares remains much the same, with a few slight tweaks to improve uniformity and productivity.

The casting and firing process for these porcelain wares involves over 10 steps and takes place over several days if not weeks. Prototypes are handmade in plaster following precise computer models to calculate for shrinkage during the drying and firing of the vessels. These rectangular roasters are cast and pressed through pressure casting, an efficient technology that can produce up to 100 pans in a day. After the pans are dried and have gone through the first firing to remove all the remaining water in the clay, they are hand dipped in glaze and go through a second firing that lasts up to two days.
