Designed with a complementary stoneware press that compacts a terrine and eliminates air pockets, this authentic pate terrine features vertical sides and a tightly fitting lid with Le Creuset's signature loop handle.
Terrine dishes are traditionally used to compact a forcemeat mixture like pate (the resulting form is also referred to as a terrine). Le Creuset's classic design includes a weighted press that molds the mixture from all sides, removing air pockets that can ruin a terrine's delicate texture. As the meat cools, the fat within it begins to set, helping the terrine hold its form.
The Heritage stoneware pate terrine also makes a stylish serving dish for a small loaf of bread or homemade custard — and its resistance to extreme temperature change allows for storing leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer immediately after cooking.
Unmatched thermal resistance from -65ºF to 500ºF — safe for the freezer, microwave, oven, broiler and dishwasher.
