Vibrant color and airy design make this a perfect choice to leave on your counter all the time. Wonderful for ripening tomatoes and keeping your fruit and veggies longer because of the aerated design. You can also use it to warm or bake bread in it. Just pop it in the oven , safe at any temp.. Oven to table with no problem. Keeps your bread warm too! It is approx. 8" square at top. Gradually slopes up to that from a smaller base. Pretty, and fits with alot of decors.
