Grub's up: 10 best casserole dishes

Whether you’re cooking up a one-pot dish for a crowd, or making a meal to freeze and last, these versatile dishes will be useful additions to your kitchen

Once you get into the habit of throwing some ingredients together in one dish, putting it the oven and taking it out, ready to serve, a couple of hours later, you’ll wonder why there was ever a time when making a home cooked meal seemed too much effort.

Before you know it you’ll be popping round to ill neighbours or new parents to drop off a casserole you made them, especially when it’s a chance to show off these fab dishes; from Lakeland’s vintage style enamel range to the colourful Scoop! Stoneware selection.

If you want to feel like an expert, the ProCook cast iron shallow casserole dish is weighty and attractive and great for the oooh factor when you bring a steaming dish to the table. For style points, Sophie Conran’s for Portmeirion is a winner, while the Denby dish is good value for its size.
