Ramekins: Useful or Waste of Cupboard Space?

by Landis Carey on April 20, 2012


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: souffl├ęs, 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?).
