Ramekins Buying Guide


Ramekins are generally made out of ceramic with fluted sides and used for individual portions. Traditionally used for serving soufflés, crème brulee, individual puddings and other single serve items they are still popular today. They have a secondary use too and are also used to serve sauces and condiments.  You will find these types of ramekins made in a variety of materials such as plastic, paper, melamine, stainless steel and metal – not all are suitable for oven use.

Ramekins come in a variety of sizes for different use:

  • 1 to 2 oz suitable for condiments such as tomato ketchup or mayonnaise.
  • 3 to 5 oz suitable for sample dishes, canapes and condiments.
  • 6 oz ideal for single serving desserts such as crème caramel, crème brulee etc.
  • 7 to 9 oz ramekins ideal for single portion food or for serving custard for example.
