Ramekins

Where can I find some decent sized ramekins that will handle high heat (finishing a meal size, not tiny bowl, of French Onion Soup under the broiler). The ones I have now are more of a souffle size and are just too small. I'm thinking 8 oz.?

I have some enameled cast iron Le Creuset miniature casseroles I found in a thrift shop a few years ago for $1 each [I bought all 8 of them]. They are perfect for french onion soup, individual desserts, pot pies, and custards and other uses.

I know you can buy them through restaurant supply catalogs, and JB Prince had them at one time also.

I bought great white ceramic soup bowls, perfect size, at Williams Sonoma outlet.

Ramekins are sort of flat and not deep enough, IMO, even the really large ones.

Many cookware stores sell special onion soup tureens/bowls. Brown crockery with ridged lip.

Are they broiler safe? They will only be under the broiler for a few minutes, but I don't want the inside of my oven to be covered with French Onion Soup. I checked out the LeCreuset ones and they seem to fit the bill (7 3/4 oz and broiler safe).

I've used my larger white ramekins for French onion soup - they did just fine. I got some great French onion soup bowls at Big Lots

Yes, they are. I make onion soup all the time (like 2 times a month at lest in the winter) and they go under the broiler all the time. I beleive they say so on the bottom. They were pretty cheap, like $2 each at the outlet store.


Yippee...

I found them for you: http://ww1.williams-sonoma.com/cat/p...1693&cmsrc=sch

But they are only $2 each on line, so the outlet store is a HOAX!

I'm going to busy working on my boat Wednesday, but will definitely make a decision Thursday or Friday. Considering where I live it will have to ordered on the Internet.
