Can't really tell fromt he photos. Looks like a multipurpose roasting vessel. So, those two pieces in the last photo come out? Can you take a photo from further away so we can see all of the pieces in relation to one another?

It looks like a silicone bake pan with a lid. Just guessing here. The lid looks to be an optional thing to use.
The hard bottom is an insert that's removable for easy cleaning.

You can bake cakes, casseroles, lasagna.

Nice friend. Lucky you if I'm right.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

The 2nd photo is the silcone lid and an insert(on the 3rd photo,too, the back of it). the insert, i can't figure out, it's ridge and rigid and a bit heavy. unfortunately, none of pan itself is removable. i tried to roast a chicken in it but it is too small, had to cut up the chicken. It's about 8inches X 8 inches. i just thought it there was like some special use for this pan thingy.
thanks for your replies.

Welcome to Discuss Cooking!

Is there a reason you can't just ask her what it's used for? If she purchased it for you she should know, on the other hand, maybe it's a re-gift and she doesn't know either?

If it really is made of plastic, I wouldn't put it in the oven.

The picture just isn't that descriptive. My bet is that it is a non-stick coated roasting pan, with silicone sides. Th sides would make it easier to handle that metal sides. This pan would be great for roasting veggies, or something small, like a cornish game hen, or maybe two chicken breasts, or sausages, etc. It would be great for frozen french fries, or sweet potato fries. This of course, assumes that the cookware is oven safe.

You could make some funky looking flat bread with that pan. Be creative with it. Experiment a little. Roast some hot dogs on it, or better yet, some pigs in the blanket.

Does it have a maker's name anywhere?

If you don't like the food, have more wine!
