Ramekins: Useful or Waste of Cupboard Space?

by Landis Carey on April 20, 2012

Ramekins

I’m considering including this new form in my line of handcrafted ceramics and I’d love your opinion! I often use ramekins and I’m always looking for fun new ways to serve individual portions, so of course I find them useful, but I wonder…

How many of you use ramekins for baking individual portions? And what do you use them for: soufflés, macaroni & cheese, baked eggs or maybe individual cakes?

I’ve had eight ramekins sitting in my cupboard for over a year… would LOVE to know how to make better use of them. Of course, if they were as beautiful as the Landis Carey versions, perhaps I would pull them out more often. :-)

Ah, Jessica, thank you for the kind words :)

I use them all the time, but usually as non-baking related individual serving dishes (like for pudding or a tiny salad or with different nuts on an appetizer tray). I think using heat-safe ramekins in all those other ways is a cupboard space saver, because then when I do want to bake individual flans (or whatever) I don’t have to pull out something special.

Such a great point, Sarah. We use ours all the time, too, and keep them really accessible. And then when I actually make something in them, they’re right there. I think you all have made my mind up about incorporating the ramekins in the line :)

snacks (sesame stix, nuts, etc.) all the time; microwaved eggs; small servings of frozen yogurt for dessert; pills; chocolate pot au feu (sp?).
