Maybe it's because I'm German speaking, but I'm utterly confused by the concept of the concept of a Casserole.
When I enter "Kasserolle" in the German Amazon I on the one side get dishes that look like that they could get put into the oven. But on the other side I get pots which have a long grip. In my family we used to call them "milk pots".
Are these milk pots also supposed to be put into the oven? I've never seen anybody put pots like these into the oven, but doesn't the word "casserole" usually imply recipes that require an oven? I am utterly confused by the concept of "casserole".
Why does it seem to imply two different kinds of dishes ("milk pots" and dishes I'd use to make a lasagne)?
