Ramekin Questions

snax | Aug 3, 2009 05:45 PM

I’m thinking about purchasing some ramekins but unsure of a few things.

First of all porcelain or stoneware? Is there a massive ‘wear and tear’ difference in the long term use of these two materials? And in your opinion how many is a good number to have as a set? I am thinking of maybe buying 8 6-Ounce for sweets such as crème brulee and lava cakes. And then 8 8-Ounce for savoury dishes such as pot-pies.

Seems like a lot of ramekins in my kitchen when not in use, but I think they would be ideal for food prep, single serves of ice-cream, and dips etc. I also like the ideas of sets so they match, and will cook in the same time.

Thanks :-)
