Q: I had amazing French onion soup the other night, and I am excited to add it to my winter soup rotation, but need to find a couple of oven-safe bowls for the critical cheese-melting step.
I found the Le Creuset ones, but I would prefer not to spend $20 for each bowl. Nothing else that I've seen that is oven-safe has a handle, which seems like it would be super convenient. Any suggestions?

Editor: Nadia, this is a really good thing to search for at discount shops like TJ Maxx and Marshalls; you may even find the Le Creuset bowls there at a discount. But also look at places like Overstock.com; the set pictured above is from there:
• Sango Nova Black 4-piece Onion Soup Bowl Set, $19.99 for a set of 4 bowls
Readers, any more suggestions for Nadia?
