How creatively do you use your Pillivuyt?

I've long been an admirer of French porcelain, having some items in rotation for over 15 years now. I used to buy (German) Arzberg but have switched to the French brand Pillivuyt some years ago.

I've noticed that I sometimes use an item for a different purpose than intended. As an example, I've just used a small oval-eared dish as a left-over quiche pan. I make a quiche in a loose-bottomed tart pan, but usually have some leftover dough and filling, so today I decided to use the Pillivuyt dish for the leftovers. As expected, everything came out perfectly fine.

Some other unintended uses for Pillivuyt items in my kitchen are using the brioche mould to store garlic and onions on my countertop, using the gratin mould as a cake pan, and using the large lasagna roasting pan for tiramisu.

I have now acquired a 20cm terrine pan (see pic) and am wondering how I can use it besides making a terrine. I sometimes use another terrine pot as a serving dish for leftovers: the lid makes it very useful in the fridge, while it still looks the part on the table. I can also see myself using the terrine pot for storing homemade ice cream.

So, what are some of your creative uses of Pillivuyt items? I believe they can be extremely useful in a variety of ways. Hopefully I can use them even more after learning of your daily routines.
