I am rating this a 5 because I love using this oval roaster. Its very unique and durable. Doesn't Stick I always use non stick cooking spray when baking, and have not had any problems with anything sticking to this dish. Heat Distribution I have found that things always cook evenly when I use this dish. I used to have to turn things around half way after cooking but this one seems to distribute easily Ease of Handling This dish is not awkard to handle like some others, and its also not too too heavy to where you feel like you are always going to drop it, either. It fits nicely in my own and on my counter, as well as in my sink and dishwasher Ease of Cleaning I throw mine into the dishwasher to be cleaned. If you handwash, it comes out just as good Design I like the depth of this particular dish. I find that I can roast a number of things in here from turkeys to casseroles. I also like that its oval so I can fit larger things like turkey, chickens and pot roasts, with no problem. Durability I have had this for a few years and its holding up great. I would buy the same on eif this one broke.
