I might not be a Pro Cook but my dish certainly is..

I might not be a Pro Cook but my dish certainly is..


Anyone who knows me will know that I'm a tryer when it comes to cooking. I'm not very good but I like to have a go, so anything that makes cooking easier is very welcome here.

This ProCook Cast Iron Casserole Dish is cast from molten iron giving it incredible strength and durability. It has a smart, stainless steel handle and is enameled inside and out with handy self basting rings inside the lid. This dish in particular has got a 28cm / 3.5L capacity and suitable for all hobs and ovens including induction ones. It's not recommended for dishwasher use and comes with a fantastic 25 year guarantee.


The ProCook Cast Iron Casserole Dish is gorgeous. It's well made and very heavy, you can definitely feel and see the quality in it. Today I used it for the very first time to make a family Shepherd's Pie for our dinner. I was really excited to see how it would turn out, I'd never made one before my myself. I must admit I was a little worried about how it would wash afterwards, would all that sticky mess be easy to get off?


Well the dish performed really well and my very first Shepard's Pie turned out great and you'll be pleased to know that it did clean well afterwards too. I soaked it in boiling water for around 10 minutes and then gave it a gentle scrubbing and all was sparkling clean once more!

This casserole dish costs £52 at the moment from the Pro Cook website which is half the usual high street price. I'm not sure if I pay that much for a dish myself but it is a great dish. It's easy to use, cleans well and does what it's meant too. It's an expensive dish but also a top quality one. I enjoyed using it and if it can bring out the best cook in me then it's definitely a hit in my house so I scored it an overall 3/5 which is pretty good.

Disclosure: I was sent my Pro Cook Casserole Dish for the purpose of this review but that does not influence my opinions or thoughts about it. My reviews are 100% honest and my own.
