Whatever’s on the menu serve it hot from the oven in a casserole dish

casserole dishes

Casseroles became a popular dinner meal in the 50s, and while they may not be as common in many kitchens, casserole dishes are still an important staple. Coming in a variety of sizes, casserole dishes can be used to back rolls and cakes, make lasagna and other pasta dishes, or roast a small turkey or ham. Smaller casserole dishes are commonly used for side dishes like yams, or green bean casserole. Here are several popular casserole dishes in a variety of sizes with several feature patterns that make serving food straight from the oven more delightful.

Casserole, it’s what’s cooking

When it comes to casserole dishes, the OXO 9×13-inch baking dish is what most people envision. This clear glass dish holds a good amount of food and has high sides to keep it from spilling over as your family and friends dig in.

You can also use this pan for making other foods including cakes, dinner rolls and gelatin salads.

Casseroles are made to be served straight from the oven, so the KingstonBull Home casserole dishes are a good pick because they feature beautiful patterns outside of the dishes, which add a splash of color and sophistication to your table. One pan is large enough to make enough lasagna to feed several people while the other is good for desserts and side dishes. Both ceramic casserole dishes heat food evenly and retain heat to help keep food hot throughout your meal.
