Pillivuyt Oblong Faceted Casserole with Lid, 5-3/4 by 4-Inch, White. Pillivuyt Oblong Faceted Casserole with Lid, 5-3/4 by 4-inch, White-is a special addition to any kitchen. Traditionally, we think of a pÃ¢te as having a smooth consistency using finely ground forcemeat while a terrine is a much more rustic and chunky affair-a mixing of chopped meats, fat and seasonings arranged in a dish and cooked; the pate is then sliced and served cold. Pillivuyt dishes with lids rank a 10 for degree of difficulty in production. Due to the high firing temperature each piece runs the risk of torque or twisting so two-part items like these are fired together to ensure the shape is maintained and that the lid will fit the dish. Each lid and its dish become perfect partners and will be boxed and sold together. The walls of these dishes, as in all Pillivuyt items, are created with a perfectly uniform thickness for exceptionally even and efficient heat conduction. Pillivuyt porcelain is fired at 2550 degrees Fahrenheit, so you can safely put any dish under the broiler for that final browning or finishing touch. Pillivuyt is the finest culinary porcelain available today.
