Casserole Dishes

A terrific all-in-one meal for a fall or winter’s day, making an excellent casserole is an art. From the standard green bean casserole that everyone looks forward to around the holidays, to interesting and delectable casseroles with meats, pastas and cheeses, a casserole is an excellent main or side dish as the cooler weather begins to approach. Having a professional-grade Dutch oven or casserole really adds a lot to your kitchen ensemble, allowing you to enjoy seamless cooking with the right equipment.

Choose from a large selection of different casserole dishes and Dutch ovens, such as the Staub Cast-Iron Pumpkin Cocotte Casserole, with a delightful pumpkin shape just in time for autumn. Available in a variety of different colors, including orange, this casserole dish has a smooth enamel coating, allowing for the best in heat conductivity during cooking. In contrast to other cast-iron cookware items, this pan requires no additional seasoning and is rust-resistant, meant to last for years of enjoyable cooking. For year-round use, select a small or large cast-iron round Dutch oven, ideal for all types of baking, including casseroles. This versatile piece allows you to brown on the stove top before placing the dish in the oven to finish cooking. Great for meats, the enamel interior is resistant to cracking and requires no additional seasoning for cooking. A stabilizing lid locks it in place, keeping food steamy and fresh. Many of the cast-iron casserole dishes from Williams-Sonoma are also dishwasher-safe.

For preparing big batches of macaroni and cheese for a potluck or for braising items, opt for a cast-iron shallow oven. A 2 ¾-quart capacity allows you to cook large dishes for the family or for entertaining, while an enameled cooking surface on the inside prevents over-browning, scorching and burning. This enameled surface also renders this shallow oven extremely easy to clean once the party is over.

Choose from different sizes and styles of casserole dishes to make every meal perfect. In addition to cast iron, stainless-steel is also an extremely durable and versatile metal when it comes to casserole dishes. A great conductor of heat and simple to clean, stainless-steel is an ideal choice. In addition, look for casserole dish sets, such as a cast-iron round cocotte casserole dish with two mini cocottes. Those who love the outdoors can take their casserole-making on the go with a cast-iron Dutch oven made specifically for the outdoors and camping, making cooking a breeze.
