All about ramekins

Ramekins are essential dishes in any modern kitchen. Whether it's for a sweet dessert, a snack or a side dish, ramekins make attractive, sturdy and easy-to-prepare dishes. These dishes can be used for many years without any degradation. To help you learn more about ramekins, we suggest reading this article.

What is a ramekin?

A Ramekin is a small, usually cylindrical container used for cooking individual dishes. Cooking pans are ideal for a variety of recipes, small soufflés and other individual desserts, as well as for preparing or serving sweet or savory, hot or cold appetizers and desserts. Because of their small size, dessert forks are suitable for enjoying desserts in casseroles. Regardless of the material (ceramic, porcelain or clay), the sauté pan ensures even heat distribution, which is ideal for controlled cooking in the oven.

How can a casserole dish be used?

Casseroles with a typical capacity of 50 ml to 250 ml are often used to prepare and serve individual portions of different individual recipes, such as burned cream, onion soup, puffed chocolate, tarragon eggs, canned shrimp, ice cream or soufflé. Casseroles are also ideal for serving as side dishes and garnishes for main courses. They are usually designed for high temperatures, since they are often used in the oven (up to 200°C) or, in the case of burned cream, are constantly exposed to the flames of the kitchen fire. Their small size also allows them to be used outside the oven. For example, you can use the pans to prepare ingredients separately before cooking.

Do the pans come in different shapes?

Made mainly of ceramic, Pyrex or porcelain, pans are highly resistant to scratches and shocks and can be washed regularly in the dishwasher. The traditional round shape with ribbons can also be transformed into more unusual shapes like flowers, hearts or stars, depending on your taste. There is no shortage of colors in the pans: clay, flour, charcoal, brick, etc. Served on a small square plate, it makes a nice presentation plate on the table.
