Broiler-Safe Mini Gratin Dishes
We needed a shallow, broilerproof mini gratin dish to ensure a crisp crust for a berry gratin. Did we find a product that delivered?

What You Need To Know
We wanted broilerproof individual mini-gratin dishes that would be shallow enough to ensure maximum surface area for a lightly browned, nicely crisp crust for a berry gratin. We tested four dishes and found that all produced evenly heated, well-browned gratin. However, one was flimsy and a few were ridiculously pricey. Our favorite heated evenly and offered a generous surface for good browning.
Everything We Tested
This wide, shallow dish created a generous surface area that allowed our fresh berry gratin to brown. The protruding handles were easy to grasp and the enamel-coated stoneware was sturdy and easy to clean, stack, and store.
This round, stainless-steel dish produced fine gratin and cleaned up easily. It seemed a little flimsy but its low cost was appealing.
This cast-iron dish with large handles was too hot to handle at the table. It also cost about four times as much as our first choice.
This pricey porcelain dish was the smallest in the lineup, leaving us hungry for more dessert when our portion was finished.
