Plenty to get a hold of here with your oven mitt. The twig handles are sturdy and the top stem has a great loop. It has a beautiful gold accent glaze and scalloped detail on the lid. This lid I call "double complicated" as it has a lip in the top and bottom which will be useful in catching any dish they may begin to bubble over. It's totally unnecessary and I just created more work than was needed. Ha ha! Holds 48 fluid ounces / 6 Cups. A wonderful way to present pumpkin bisque soup or a home-made maccaroni and cheese.
