9 Casserole Carriers for Your Potluck Favorites
These fun—and functional—casserole carriers are made for showing off potluck faves. All that's left to do is pick your perfect recipe!
Ever been the one who rushed to sign up for paper products because the idea of bringing a hot dish seemed like a hassle? Or driven really, really slowly with one hand on the wheel and the other on the casserole you were taking to a friend, praying it wouldn’t spill outside its flimsy foil covering?
The right casserole carrier can make all the difference! Read on for our top-rated picks—they’ll have you cooking up ideas faster than you can say “potluck supper.”
This insulated set ($35) is perfect for those who frequently tote multi-dish dinners (here are a few of our fave side dish casseroles, with enough variety to pair with most any main entree). This casserole carrier set includes both a 9×9 and 13×9 holder, with a sturdy handle and exterior pockets for utensils or napkins.
A winner for its height, sturdy construction and thoughtful design (dual zippers at top and bottom allow for mess-free placement of pies and cakes), this carrier ($35) is also roomy enough to hold a pie plate with small handles—Juicy Peach & Strawberry Crumb Pie, anyone? We also love the trendy fabric options!
Family reunion chefs rejoice! If you’re like us, plans to bring just one dish quickly turn into a haul’s worth of homemade goodness, especially with reunion recipes like these. Transporting them is a whole lot easier with this insulated double carrier ($24), giving you room to layer both hot and cold dishes together, without sacrificing their respective temperatures.
You can easily fit two 13×9 dishes as well as utensils or napkins in the outer compartment. Padded handles make it easy to tote, too!
This casserole tote ($25) can easily accommodate most rectangle-shaped covered casserole dishes—perfect for any one of these fresh summer potluck salads. The top compartment is unlined and spacious, giving you a perfect spot to transport tongs, dressing or other accompaniments to your recipe.
There is also a clear slot on the front to jot down your name for easy identification (just in case anyone else shows up with the same super-cute watermelon print)!
At last! Our search for the elusive square casserole carrier was totally worth the wait—because this one from Etsy shop Sisters Act Two ($25) totally delivers. The insulated design fits both square and round dishes beautifully, and opens on both sides to make packing and unwrapping easy and mess-free. Here are 45 of our tried and true casserole recipes for the 8×8 dish.
Available in a wide array of fabrics, the carrier also include handles with batting and reinforced stitching.
With top reviews attesting to its perfect fit (no sloshing!) and ability to hold heat for several hours, this Pyrex casserole carrier ($16) is hard to beat. Put it to the test with this round up of our top go-to summer recipes for 13×9 sized dishes.
This carrier has room to include hot or cold packs (separate purchase) and includes a sturdy handle for easy transport.
This double carrier ($26) can hold both 9×13 dishes as well as 11×15 (equivalent to a 5-quart baking dish). Its double insulation keeps food hot for a good long while, whether it’s to Grandma’s house or the office potluck. The carrier also includes a large zippered compartment for any extras to make serving a cinch.

This all-in-one set ($37) gives you the casserole carrier itself, plus a 3-quart/13×19 baking dish with snap-on lid and a hot/cold pack insert. For added assurance that your dish will arrive as beautifully as it looked in your kitchen, we recommend covering any dishes that have a lot of sauce or liquid with aluminum foil first, then the snap-on lid.
With its timeless blue cornflower design, this stoneware set ($40) includes a 3-quart casserole dish with handles, a plastic cover, and insulated bag. We love the efficiency of being able to store leftovers with the included cover, instead of a bumpy glass top that can take up precious fridge space!
