1 / 7
  1. Pie Carrier, $12 from Bed Bath & Beyond: We love this simple, low-profile pie carrier because it’s easy to store when you’re not using it. You know, the other 360 days of the year.
  2. Wilton Covered Cake Pan, $11 from Target: Cake isn’t the only thing you can bake in this pan. It’s also the perfect size for dressing or green bean casserole.
  3. Bake and Store Bakers, $13-$15 from Crate & Barrel: Make your casseroles in these glass dishes then pop on the lids for transport. Just be sure you wrap them in a dish towel to keep them warm.
  4. Progressive Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier, $30 from Bed Bath & Beyond: No matter what kind of cake-based dessert you’re bringing, this carrier will get it there safely. Plus, it flattens down to less than half of it’s height for storage.
  5. Pyrex Portables 3-Quart Oblong Baking Dish, $30 from Walmart: This is the ultimate in potluck preparedness. Not only does the baking dish come with a lid and an insulated cover, but it also has a heat pack to keep your dish warm in transit.
  6. Quatro Stagioni Bottle, $4 from Container Store: If you’ve been tasked with bringing a cocktail or even the gravy, this quart glass bottle is the perfect way to safely transport your goods.
  7. Anchor Hocking 2-Quart Sculpted Casserole Dish, $13 from Target: We love that this piece has two lids meaning it’s versatile enough to go from the oven to the table to the fridge without any hassle.
