Emile Henry Ceramic Pie Dish
Any pie will shine in a classic Emile Henry stoneware pie dish ($40), especially in this brilliant shade of cherry red. Plus, crusts bake up crisp and flaky, and the dish can withstand high temperatures for broiling meringues or browning savory dishes.
A dish this gorgeous should hold our Star-Studded Blueberry Pie.
Rose Levy Beranbaum’s Pie Plate
The author of the Pie and Pastry Bible knows a thing or two about perfect pies! Her pie plate ($25) features an extra-wide fluted edge—which makes it easy to put a dramatic, decorative edge on your pie crusts. This lip also makes the dish easy to pull from the oven and gives extra support to mile-high pies.
Camp Cast-Iron Pie Pan
Cast iron conducts heat nicely. For your pie, this means a beautifully browned crust with no soggy bottom! (See what Mary Berry means by “soggy bottom.”) This cast-iron pie pan ($21) comes preseasoned and ready to use in your home or outdoor oven.
Be sure to bake up all kinds of cobbler and slump recipes in a cast-iron pan.

Sold!
Pi Day Pie Plate
It’s the perfect dish for the pie baker/mathematician in your life. Celebrate Pi Day on March 14th with this fun pie plate ($25) that has the first 100 numerals of pi running around the rim. The symbol for pi is revealed as each slice is eaten.
Here’s another nice number: 100. As in 100 Pies to Eat on Pi Day!

These are perfect for mini chicken pot pies or individual apple pies. These mini pans from Calphalon ($20 for four) are built to last and better yet—they’re nonstick. The baked pies will release easily for a beautiful presentation. And… they’re also very cute!
