HIC's Mini Eared Ramekins, specially designed for use in the oven and under the broiler, are ideal for creating mini appetizers, small bites, desserts and other single-serving recipes. This versatile serveware is perfectly sized for use as individual butter crocks and salt cellars. And, they work equally well for portioning single servings of condiments, dipping sauces, spreads, grated cheeses, garnishes, olives, and jams, at each place setting. Even use them as prep bowls for easier food preparation. Classically styled to complement any table setting, HIC's Mini Eared Ramekins perform beautifully at every dining occasion, from breakfast to lunch or brunch, for holiday meals, party buffets, even outdoor entertaining. A tradition since 1957, HIC Fine Porcelain Bakeware and Serveware is safe for use in the microwave, oven, broiler (to 500-degrees Fahrenheit), and freezer. These ramekins are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
