The top goes on and it's a chaffing dish(kinda).
One thing I will tell brides to register for(that I learned from blogs), register for an oven to table dishes.
This is a pyrex dish that has a platter, with a top, and looks fab!
I wish I had seen these online to register for before the wedding.
I didn't though..and still don't see these type of serving pieces at the big stores.
LOVE IT!! And............. I got it for only $40!(love silent auctions ---only wait for my post on things in my house I got at auction.you'll die fo sho!!)
