9 Must-Have Potluck Accessories
From cake carriers to serving dishes, these perfect potluck products will help you prep for your party like a pro.
Lifewit Double Casserole Carrier
As if a regular casserole carrier wasn’t convenient enough, this one ($25) comes with two layers so you can bring double the food (and double the fun!). It can fit up to an 11×15″ pan, so it’s the perfect way to transport whichever of these 13×9″ potluck recipes you make.
Elite Platinum Triple Slow Cooker
Why choose just one of our 100 best slow cooker recipes when you could choose three? That’s totally possible thanks to this triple slow cooker ($80). Bonus: Each pot has its own controls so you can adjust for individual cook times and temperature.
Prepworks Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier
You put a lot of effort into making one of these crowd-pleasing potluck desserts—so don’t let it all go to waste by trying to balance it on your lap while you drive. Instead, tuck your sweet treat (or treats!) safely inside this cute cake caddy ($28).
Raybin Slice Solutions Brownie Pan
Save yourself the struggle of trying to perfectly portion out brownies with this handy pan ($19). It comes with a divider that you simply press into the batter before baking to end up with symmetrical squares—no slicing required. Here are the richest, fudgiest brownie recipes to help you get started.
Quick & Carry Slow Cooker Travel Tote Bag
Slow cookers are great… until you have to try to tote them from point A to point B (AKA from your kitchen to your friend’s dining room). If you can relate, you need this slow cooker carrier ($50), which has two sturdy straps and full-coverage padding for protection.
Ecovita Compostable Cutlery
Hosting a wedding, baby shower or other large event? These disposable utensils ($55) will not only make your life easier (goodbye hours of dishwashing!) but they’re also better for the environment. Made from corn, they’re 100% compostable and will break down to nutrient-rich soil within two to four months of being tossed in the compost pile.
Prodyne Carry & Serve Bowl
Wilted lettuce, begone! This genius salad bowl ($35) will keep all your veggies nice and crisp (and more importantly, cool) thanks to the separate ice chamber on top. It even comes with a clip-on lid so you can easily take your tossed creation to-go.
Tablecraft Beverage Tub
While potlucks are definitely all about the food (especially if you serve one of our most-shared party recipes), every good host knows you can’t forget about the drinks. A few bottles of lemonade and iced tea (and maybe even some wine!) will stay chilled in this gorgeous galvanized bucket ($40).
Prep Naturals Meal Prep Containers
Don’t let your guests leave empty-handed. Instead, put out plastic containers toward the end of the evening and ask everyone to take some of the leftovers home with them. The best part about these convenient cartons ($27)? They’re sectioned off so you can put multiple dishes in one.
