If you’ve been hacking it with cheap bakeware or aluminum foil-covered baking sheets, it’s time to upgrade to something more effective, healthful, and beautiful. Why not do so by way of time-honored European ceramic companies who have been producing porcelain and stoneware baking dishes for decades if not centuries? Bonus: they perform as well on the table as they do in the oven. Here are our 10 favorites.
