Baking Dishes Buying Guide

Refine By

Yummy foods like bread puddings, cobblers, and crisps are often made in a baking dish, not a pan. Baking dishes and casseroles function for baking and serving. Starting with egg strata in the morning and ending with a one-dish dinner in the evening, baking dishes are the workhorses of your kitchen and ideal for oven-to-table service.

Types of Baking Dishes

Types of Baking Dishes

Baking dishes are most often made of glass, ceramic, stoneware, or enamel-coated cast iron. Most glass varieties are oven-, microwave-, and freezer-safe; check the brand to make sure. Baking dishes can be round, oval, square, or rectangular. They can range in size from about 1 quart to more than 6 quarts. Although you may use a round dish on occasion for baking, you'll likely reach for one with four corners most often.

Square Baking Dish

The most common square baking dish has a 2-quart capacity, although some are larger. It is ideal for baking and serving fruit crisps and cobblers.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

When it comes to buying bakeware, material matters. Heating quality and durability of the material are important factors, as is its ability to withstand high-heat baking temperatures. Glass dishes are used for baking recipes that contain acidic ingredients (such as fresh fruits or tomatoes), as they will not react like baking pans made of aluminum. Some baking-dish sizes and shapes are used more often than others, so consider having a couple of each of those sizes.

Materials

There are many choices of material for baking dishes: glass, ceramic, stoneware, enamel-coasted stoneware, enamel-coated cast iron, and more. Some are more durable than others, and it is important that the dish heats evenly and is oven-safe.

Shapes and Sizes

Because dish size and shape is specific to a recipe and critical to its result, it's nice to have a variety of baking dishes on hand. Be sure to have the most commonly used dishes: 2-quart square, 3-quart rectangular, 2-quart casserole, and a set of ramekins.

Lids

There are two styles of baking dishes that include lids: beautiful ceramic or pottery dishes with matching oven-safe lids, and basic glass dishes with no-leak, airtight lids designed for microwave use and storage but not for use in the oven.

Handles

Baking dishes are designed to do just that—bake in a hot oven—so handles on opposite sides are beneficial for easy transfer from oven to table. The handles should be large enough to grab securely when using pot holders.
