Non-stick pie dishes for ease of use
A non-stick pie dish is essential if you want to get your pie out in one piece. The non-stick coating prevents pastry from sticking to it as it cooks so each slice will come out easily and your dish will be cleaner without any stickiness. Shop non-stick pie dishes at Kitchen Warehouse, including the Mondo Pie Pan and Bakemaster Non-Stick Individual Round Pie Dish.
Finding the right size and style dish for your cooking
Pie dishes come in different shapes and sizes to bake a wide variety of pies and other goods. An oval pie dish makes a traditional pie and is particularly great for making French desserts like clafoutis. A round pie dish is the most versatile and commonly used for cooking meat pies. As the name suggests, a tart pan is used for baking shallow tarts. These can be fluted pie dishes to give your tart a fancy edge or have straight sides. Flan dishes are similar to tart pans with shallow sides for baking pies with softer, creamy fillings.
A quiche tin or quiche dish is typically deeper and made to bake savoury quiches. They can be fluted or perforated for creating an even, crispy crust.
Best material for a pie plate
Pie plates can be made out of many different materials with each one providing a unique set of benefits in baking. Some of the most popular materials include:
Stoneware. Enamelled stoneware is traditional, freezer-safe and oven-safe with slow, even baking. They also double as a beautiful serving dish!
Carbon steel. A carbon steel pie tin is heavy-duty to resist warping and provides even heat distribution and retention. It's often non-stick for easy removal of pies.
Silicone. A silicone pie dish is durable and flexible which makes removing pies from the dish quick and easy. It's also dishwasher-safe.
Cast iron. Cast iron cookware offers superior even heat retention for a flakier, more golden pie crust. If not enamelled, it will need to be seasoned before each use to retain its natural non-stick properties.
Glass. A classic glass pie dish provides slow, even heating for consistent browning. It's also transparent so you can achieve the perfect golden colour.
Deep pie dish or shallow dish
A deep pie dish will fit plenty of mixture for a hearty pie that retains moisture and flavour. Deep dish pies take longer to bake and have a constant temperature in the centre which results in a lighter crust. The Maxwell & Williams White Basics is a deep oval dish with a clean and simple aesthetic that can bake everything from flaky pies to tall, creamy quiches.
Shallow pie dishes bake pies more quickly and deliver a darker golden crust. They are best suited to tarts and other pies that require less filling. The Bakemaster Silicone Quiche/ Pie Pan bakes quiches, pies and tarts with a fluted edge and easy removal.
Different pie dish uses
You can use pie dishes to make a wide variety of delicious baked goods, both sweet and savoury. They're most commonly used to create deep and shallow pies, including meat pies, fruit mince pies, tarts and quiche. They can also be used to bake potato gratin, roasted vegetables, bread and bread rolls, meatloaf, baked frittata and much more. If you need a dish to hold your salad or serve other hot food, a pie dish can be a wonderful choice!
Cleaning and looking after your new dish
Some pie dishes may be dishwasher-safe while others will need to be washed by hand in warm, soapy water. Avoid using metal utensils on non-stick or enamelled dishes as they can scratch the surface. Check your individual product details for specific care instructions.

What is the best dish to cook a pie in?
A pie pan is a special type of baking dish designed to bake all sorts of sweet and savoury pies. The best dish for you will depend on the type of pie you wish to bake. If you want to make a tart or shallow pie, a tart tin is great and can be fluted for added visual interest.
Quiche pans are used to bake quiches and can also be used to bake tarts. They are commonly perforated to allow better air circulation for a golden, perfect crust.
Deep oval pie dishes and round pie dishes are great for baking cobblers as well as thick, meaty pies, such as shepherd's pie. A pie dish with a loose base will make getting the pie out of the dish for slicing much easier, as will a non-stick coating.
What size should a pie dish be?
A conventional pie dish generally measures around 23cm wide and 2 1/2cm deep. This makes a pie that's big enough to serve 6-8 pie slices. Deeper pie dishes hold more and can be around 5cm in depth with a diameter that ranges from 12cm to 23cm and wider. You can also find smaller individual pie tins, such as the Mondo Individual Round Pie Tin and Ecology Signature Ramekin 4pc Set that measures 11cm.
