If you're hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year (or contributing a side dish), then you'll need plenty of casserole dishes for your scalloped potatoes, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and green beans. This Heritage oval casserole from Le Creuset is versatile and timeless. We love the chic meringue color because it can be used all year long.

This polished black pumpkin-shaped cocotte is both festive and practical. The 3.5-quart capacity is perfect for holding candy around Halloween, as a serving dish for a Thanksgiving side, or simmering a small batch of soup on a weeknight. Because it's made by Staub, it's also heavy-duty and can withstand high heat.

It has enough pomp and frills for holiday presentation, but is also timeless and will add a little excitement to any Sunday roast or weeknight roast chicken.

You and your gravy deserve an upgrade from that cereal bowl you used last year. This vintage-inspired gravy boat will look phenomenal on any table or buffet, is easy to pour, and is less than $30 (so you really have no excuse). The rest of the year you can use it for passing steak sauce, hollandaise, or a punchy chimichurri.

We love these FINEX cast-iron skillets for their thoughtful design and their ability to perfectly sear steak or turnout a flawless frittata. Use this skillet for homemade cornbread or a batch of buttery rolls and then bring the pan right to the table.

Rarely are you making just one pie for Thanksgiving. This perfectly mismatched set is classic, affordable, and will make all the pumpkin, apple, and pecan pie-lovers happy.

We guarantee you'll be using this gorgeous stoneware platter year-round. The pale greens and blues are neutral but also add some visual interest. We also love how each plate is a little different because of the varying pools and cracks in the glaze. The platter is 14-inches wide, so it's big enough for passing bite-size hors d'oeuvres or as a platter for a carved roast chicken.

Ora Stoneware Round Platter, $40 from

Baking Dishes

This large ruffled rectangular baker from Emile Henry is exactly what you'll reach for when making stuffing, lasagna, kugel, or a breakfast casserole. It's an easy all-purpose size and comes in an array of colors perfect for the holidays (we're looking at you, spruce!).

Butter Keeper

If you don't have a French butter keep yet, then get ready to be obsessed. This rustic earthenware crock allows you to have room temp, spreadable butter at the ready (because NO ONE likes trying to spread cold rock-hard butter on their bread). A touch of water in the base of the butter keeper creates a tight seal that keeps your butter safe without refrigeration. This particular one from Sawyer ceramics can hold up to three-quarters of a stick of butter at a time.
