Now Designs Retro Glass Casserole Dishes
We all love an old-fashioned casserole. And why not pair those classic dishes with, well, classic dishes? This set of two vintage-inspired casserole dishes with lids ($35) definitely remind us of our favorite old Pyrex patterns.
Kovot Bakeware Dish
In an ivory antique finish, this ceramic dish set ($15) is perfect for seasonal favorites like this peach cobbler. The lid makes it an ideal bakeware choice for take and make dishes, including our Jumbleberry Crumble, shared between parishioners at a Pennsylvania church.
Pioneer Woman Ceramic Muffin Pan
There’s something about ceramic cookware that makes us think of days gone by, and that’s why we love this ceramic muffin pan from the Pioneer Woman ($13). It’d be so pretty for baking up our favorite muffin recipes.
Nordic Ware 9×9 English Shortbread Pan
With nine different designs, this shortbread pan ($30) is lauded for its non-stick quality and portion-perfect shortbread size. You can keep it traditional with 3-ingredient shortbread cookies or add lavender, cinnamon or chocolate for something special. Call them whatever you like—cookies, biscuits or shortbread. Just let us eat one!
Anchor Hocking Laurel Loaf Pan
Give your favorite quick bread a little polish with this pretty Depression glass-inspired loaf pan ($10). This dish is so pretty that we’d be happy to leave our bakes right inside and serve them out—no messy flipping and turning out required.

Pyrex Vintage Charm Golden Days Mixing Bowl Set
The Vintage Charm series features four patterns inspired by retro Pyrex (including Golden Days, shown here), and we love them all! This set of nesting bowls ($34) has your everyday go-to sizes, with a 3-cup, 6-cup and 10-cup bowl included.
Corningware Cornflower Baking Dishes
Did you know that this classic bakeware is back? Yep, the classic pattern has been made new by Corningware! If you miss the Cornflower pattern of yore, you can stock up on all kinds of pieces from small bowls to large casserole dishes (from $22).
Crow Canyon Home Enamel Jelly Roll Tray
In solid white with red trim, this enamel baking pan ($36) adds a bit of retro flair to whatever strikes your baking fancy. Roomy enough for cookies (oh lemon meltaways, how we love thee!) or a loaf of bread, this dish can be a versatile, hardworking addition to your kitchen collection.
Rose Levy Berenbaum’s Perfect Pie Plate
With a fluted edge design to show off your most impressive creations, we also love this dish for its soft color palette. The simple beauty of the Perfect Pie Plate ($24) will keep everyone’s attention where it should be—on that pie plate’s delicious contents. You’ll want to see our very best pie recipes. We’ll take a slice of each!
Nordic Ware Bundt Pan in Blush Pink
In a swoon-worthy shade of pink, this bundt pan ($30) captured our attention for its impeccable quality, tried and true performance and the practical muslin storage bag that is included. We love our Bundt cakes for holidays yes, but also every other day that ends in “Y.” Here are our most gorgeous bundt cake recipes. Forks up!
