WS Essential Bakers

Having the right bakeware makes all the difference when cooking up creamy casseroles or baking delicious breads. That’s why we at Williams-Sonoma put a lot of thought into creating our WS Essential bakers that are designed to be versatile enough to conquer any oven recipe while maintaining a stunning appearance that can be served straight form the oven to the table. Our rectangular baking dishes include a lid for oven-braising meats to tender, succulent perfection so you can use bakers to create more than just cakes and bread. When paired with bakeware sets, you’ll be ready to tackle any baking recipe that comes your way with our Essential bakeware.


Our Essential bakers are made in Portugal, where a tradition of artisan-crafted ceramics has flourished since the 13th century. Our Essential bakers are constructed of glazed stoneware that is exceptionally strong and durable and retains its beauty through repeated use and dishwasher cleaning. The extra-deep dish accommodates tender roasts, bubbling-hot casseroles or baked desserts, making them ideal cake pans. The stoneware retains heat efficiently and keeps cakes warm for serving so you can enjoy gooey centers and creamy fillings right when they come out of the oven. When cooking meats, our Essential bakers feature a lid that circulates heat and retains moisture for savory braises.


Make baking simple and easy when you need to throw together a last minute dinner party dessert or bake sale treat with our baking mixes. Just mix the ingredients per the instructions, add to our WS Essential bakers and you’ll have a delicious dessert in no time that will please your guests. Our Essential bakers are available in 1.5-, 3, and 3.5-qt capacities so you can choose the one that fits your needs. The integral side handles make lifting and serving easy, and they are safe for the microwave and freezer. You can warm up or freeze leftovers in a cinch.


Our Essential bakers also make excellent bread and loaf pans so you can create sweet dessert breads or healthy multi-grain breakfast options. Opt for a square or rectangular baker to create the shape you desire. Make sure to select one without a lid so that the bread can rise to perfection. The square baker is particularly useful for small casseroles and roast vegetables, as well as desserts such as cobblers and brownies. The slightly sloped sides make a great visual addition to your breads, and the enameled glaze makes them perfect for brunch displays or when bringing a sweet treat over to a new neighbor.
