Question

Interior Depth of Dish

Can someone please tell me the true interior depth of this dish? One reviewer said it was deeper than a typical 9x13, but another said it was not big enough to perform as a lasagna pan which is what I want it for.
Is the 3.5" dimension given measuring to the top of the handle of the lid??

The 3.5" depth is just the usable part of the pan, from the base to the rim-it does not include the handles.
