The Le Creuset Heritage Stoneware Pate Terrine Mold with Press in Cassis Purple features vertical sides and a tightly fitting lid for a perfect pâté. Designed for compacting the terrine and eliminating air pockets that can ruin a terrine's texture, the included press is an essential pâté-crafting tool. Apply the press directly on top of a finished pate to improve form and texture before removing and slicing. The pressure helps fat to set properly during cooling. Easily add extra weight to the press for heavier meat terrines and pate. Le Creuset Stoneware cooking and baking pieces are truly all-in-one dishes. You can bake, slice, serve and store in them. The pieces can bake in an oven up to 500 degrees F or go from the freezer into a cold oven so stoneware, food, and oven heat up together. Le Creuset fires its stoneware at 2,156 degrees F, giving it unmatched strength and durability, making it resistant to chipping, cracking and staining. For more than 80 years, Le Creuset has been an inspiration to professional chefs and home cooks alike.
