Some of my favorite baking dishes come from Crate and Barrel. They’re the Everyday Baker line.


I also have some pyrex dishes I like as well.

I don’t like using non-stick either, so I don’t have too many non-stick pieces.

I would go with ceramic, they work just as well as nonstick stuff but look nicer and are heavier.  I have le creuset but I think almost any ceramic would be fine. Crate and barrel has nice stuff for great prices.

My moms trusted brand is Pyrex. I’ve borrowed it for a month straight (forgot to give it back. & kept using it :p) & it works pretty well if I say so myseof.

Pyrex or Corningware. Tried and true, lasts forever.

whatever you go with, make sure it’s something that your husband can’t wreck with a steak knife!!

Pyrex is the best … It can go under the broiler!

I like Le Creuset the best. I always get good results whenever I use any of their stuff, and it’s easy to clean. Plus it looks nice!

Le Creuset! Their nonstick is amazing–I am super hard on my cookware (steel wool and everything), but these are still just as good as they were when we got them for our wedding. The other Le Creuset pots and pans are also amazing, very even heating and still look great three years after getting married.

I do agree with others, though, that for casserole dishes, Pyrex is the best. The stuff lasts forever (hard to break, unlike ceramic!) and is easy to clean.

We got a set of Circulon cookware for our wedding. I really like it and it’s safe for metal utensils. The woman who gave it to us says she’s been using the same set she got 20 years ago at her own wedding. It’s cleans up super easy, but it isn’t dishwasher safe and I’ve really liked cooking with them. 

Before this I was using bits and pieces of sets from my mom and grandmother.
