Le Creuset’s Durable Bakeware Dishes Are on Sale at Williams Sonoma (Just In Time for Fall!)
It may be called “bakeware,” but don’t let the name fool you — without a doubt, casserole dishes and baking pans are the cookware essentials you need when it comes to perfecting you ooey-gooey brownie recipe or apple cider doughnut blondies (yes, please!), but they can handle a lot more than just sweet treats. As we enter the cold weather months, casseroles, lasagnas, and oven-baked veggies are our friends. That’s why having a trusty piece of bakeware on deck can make all the difference.
And, there is no better place to turn when in need of top-notch bakeware (or any kitchen essential, really) than Le Creuset! While the fan-favorite brand is most well known for their stellar enameled cast-iron cookware, as it turns out, they really know what they’re doing when it comes to bakeware as well. And right now, you can find a whole slew of the stuff on sale at Williams Sonoma for some seriously low prices.
Take this stunning covered baker, for instance. Crafted (like all Le Creuset stoneware pieces) with the highest quality durable porcelain, this square essential is a total showstopper when it comes to evenly baked goods from cobblers and cornbread to eggplant parm. Its flared, wide handles make it one heck of a looker, but also provide supreme grip-ability. (Which you’ll be needing, because with a heat-containing lid, you’ll be able to bake, transport, and serve all out of the same piece.) It’s available on sale in 12 different, equally gorgeous hues, and it’s truly the perfect essential for all the family gatherings and holidays ahead.
Or, you could opt for a cute lil’ thing like this mini cocotte. And, at just over $20, it’s a no-brainer of a purchase. It’s got an 8-ounce capacity, making it a go-to for side dishes, single serving meals and desserts, or fun communal eating activities like fondue. All 10 available colors are made with chip-, scratch-, and stain-resistant enamel that’s good to go in the dishwasher, freezer, oven, and microwave. In other words, the possibilities are limitless. So, get the chocolate lava cakes flowing and snag a couple of these adorable little cocottes, you won’t regret it.
There are tons of bakeware options to choose from on Williams Sonoma’s site, but we’ve found yet another editor favorite. This square bakeware duo has been a tried and true fave of Kitchn editors for some time now — and for good reason. The nesting dishes are exceptionally durable and provide even, consistent heat, ensuring no soggy bottoms and no burn edges. They’re coated in a naturally nonstick glaze for easy cleanup, are safe for broiler use, and are the ideal size for a side of baked veggies or a whole batch of seven-layer bars. The bonus? They’re beautiful enough to hang out tableside, so you’ll never have to worry about dirtying a serving dish.
No matter which piece (or pieces — with deals this good you should grab ’em all) you go with, I think you’ll find that these stoneware pieces are the essential tools you pull out time and time again.
