You are getting ready to head to a barbecue or holiday dinner, and want to bring your favorite recipe along. The first thing you should consider doing is getting a convenient way to transport the home-cooked dish. There are few things more frustrating than arriving and finding out your casserole spilled or your lasagna is a big mess because you weren’t carrying it properly. You need a carrying case that will keep it flat, is large enough for your casserole dish, and can also maintain the temperature.
You can solve all those problems by using the Rachael Ray Expandable Lasagna Lugger. Unlike many other products that are similar to it, this one holds multiple baking dishes instead of just one of them. It is also a little roomier, so if your dish has larger handles, the dish should still fit inside with the ability to zip it up securely.
This lasagna dish holder is made from durable materials that are meant to protect the dishes, keep them upright, and also keep them warm or cold as needed. This is done with the SuperFoam insulation inside and the extra Therma-Flect radiant barrier. What does this mean for you? Well, if you are bringing a cold dish to the event, it is going to stay cold. For example, you want to keep your 7-layer dip cold, so you can keep it in this carrier and it will stay cold. On the other hand, if you made a homemade casserole for a potluck, you want to keep it warm, which the insulation will also help you with.
The Rachael Ray dish holder is expandable, so if you are bringing just one dish, you can keep it at the smaller size and you don’t need to waste any room. However, you can expand it and use both compartments to fit two different dishes. It fits standard size casserole dishes, which are 9 x 13 inches in size. The carrier also has carry handles so that you keep the dishes upright and easily carry the heavy glass casserole dishes with ease.
This carrier also happens to be very easy to clean. The inside and outside are made with a material that can be wiped off if you spill anything on it. A cloth with a little dish soap can help with tougher stains. We didn’t find any major drawbacks to this product. It is highly rated and a great product for the price.
