The best thing about fall is that it's technically pie season. Apple! Pumpkin! Pecan! It's time to make all the pies! Even if you've already been baking and have an existing pie dish in your kitchen, you should still consider this Pyrex two-pack — especially if you don't have a glass dish.
Pyrex Easy Grab Glass Pie Plates, $9.50 for two
These clear pie dishes might not be the most decorative ones on the market — especially when compared to Emile Henry or Le Creuset — but they're inexpensive and totally functional. You see, Pyrex has been around for more than 100 years and has a special place in the hearts of cooks, bakers, and vintage collectors across the country.
Each 9.5-inch pie plate is made of nonporous glass, which won't warp, stain, or absorb odors. The glass also heats slowly, building up gradually and spreading evenly. We've used these for dozens of pies (probably more!) and love how the bottom crusts on fruit pies come out crisp, and custards cook evenly. The plates can go in the oven (obviously), and also the microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher. And Pyrex Glass comes with a two-year warranty.
