On a chilly day, there's nothing better than a warm, delicious meal, and a hearty casserole that's easy to whip up is at the top of the food list this holiday season. Whether you're serving your casserole at a family gathering or taking it to a potluck, a baking dish with a lid is a must. Thousands of Amazon shoppers love the Pyrex Easy Grab 2-Quart Glass Casserole Dish because it's long-lasting and makes cozy meals for just $20.
Baking family recipes and new favorites is a treat with the Pyrex casserole dish. Made of good-quality tempered glass, the baking dish is durable enough to withstand both hot and cold temperatures, making it ideal to cook in the oven and store food within the freezer. The glass design also lets you keep an eye on the cooking process, ensuring that your food is baked thoroughly, every time. And when you're ready to take it out, it has large handles to make the process as smooth as possible.

What sets the deep Pyrex Easy Grab dish apart from other casseroles is it comes with a heat-resistant glass lid that keeps warmth and moisture in while baking dishes with uncooked or grainy ingredients. Plus, the lid works alongside the heat-retaining glass to keep food steaming hot for long periods of time. That means you can carry it to a gathering or serve it with other sides, knowing it'll still be hot and ready to eat when everyone gathers around.
Another bonus about this Pyrex glass dish? It won't absorb odors or get stained from food, like silicone or stoneware. It's also incredibly easy to clean—not only can food come off quickly after soaking, it can also be cleaned in the dishwasher thanks to its thick glass makeup. Keep in mind that while glass retains heat, it is also temperature-sensitive, so avoid transporting the dish from an extremely cold temperature to hot (and vice versa) to prevent shattering.
The Amazon best-seller has over 3,000 five-star ratings from shoppers who call it a "beautiful workhorse" and their "go-to dish." Others also say it's "perfect to cook, serve, and store casseroles."
"This casserole is wonderful for general baking with or without the lid," wrote one Amazon shopper. "It fits in my standard over-the-stove microwave. It goes into the regular oven. The handles make it easy to grab with pot holders. I especially like this casserole for roasting chicken breasts with the lid on. The chicken doesn't dry out."
"I bought this because I've had terrible luck with paint peeling in ceramic pans," wrote another. "I have been very impressed with how well this is made. I've used it for everything from casseroles to storing soup in the fridge to making meatloaf that only takes up half the pan. This thing is fantastic and I would happily buy again."
