Broken Stones = Broken Heart

I absolutely L O V E my Pampered Chef Glazed Rectangle Baker. It's a 9 x 13 stoneware pan that is coated with an off white glaze. I use this pan for everything: chicken, lasagna, pork but mostly for brownies. Last night, it broke in half.

I was terribly upset when I opened the oven door to check the doneness of my pork tenderloin. There I saw my pan had cracked in half. Thankfully I had my marinated tenderloin wrapped in foil, so nothing leaked out of the pan onto the oven!

But this is the second time this has happened. The first pan was cooking chicken Parmesan about two years ago. I had to buy another pan because the three year warranty had just expired a month earlier!

I'm a touch happier now that I have found my receipt and realize my current broken pan is under warranty! I've emailed my consultant and hope to have another pan within a few weeks. But this makes me wonder, is there something out there better than Pampered Chef Stoneware? My favorite feature of this pan is that it keeps foods hot for a very long time and it is extremely easy to clean. Minimal scrubbing, if any, and the pan is nice and deep.

If anyone knows of a better product, or something similar, let me know in the comments section below. I'm always up for new things.
