Pampered Chef: My love hate relationship with the Deep Dish Baker

    I absolutely LOVE this pan! My mac and cheese hasn't come out any better. But the handle to the top is HORRIBLE!!!! I just broke my second top. Split it in half because I dropped it due to the handle being so small. That coupled with the top being so heavy because it's stonewear, when you have the oven gloves on, you can't grip the handle, so it just slips.

    I am writing HO to let them know to redesign the handle. Like I said, I love this pan, but man, I now have to sned it back again for them to replace the top again. That is such a drag!

    I think so...I was wondering how you could hate the DDB, I am on my original one still from YEARS ago. IT is one of my favorite stones and I've NEVER had an issue!

    The new oven pad is way easier to grip things with I personally think.

    I love the DCB but I have a hard time cleaning it ... I often soak it in hot water to remove things that stick.

    I would rather clean my DCB than my fluted stone! Love them both but hate cleaning the fluted one!!!
