‘A lot of casserole dishes are cast iron, which is one of the heaviest materials in the kitchen,’ says Lee Harper, Technologist for M&S Home. ‘Even before you fill it with hot liquids. They can be hard to clean as well, so not always practical for today’s cook.'

Going on to say, 'In our range, we’ve replaced the cast iron with cast aluminium – which is very light. They’re completely ovenproof and you still get good heat retention. They have basting nodules so the steam drops back into the food and they have the classic look of the casserole dish that people love.’
