Lately, I have been tired of my classic white ramekins. They work well but the style feels a little bit dated. Therefore, I start a search for more modern options. So far, I found four colourful ramekins that caught my attention. My short list reads like this:
No. 1 – My favorite is a part of the House by John Lewis collection. I love the steel color of this uncluttered ceramic ramekin. Safe up to 200°C (392°F) £3 each
No. 2 – The Rachael Ray Round Ramekins are top rated at Cooking.com. I like that they are oven safe to 500°F. They are available in many colours: orange, indigo blue, green, yellow, chocolate brown. $24.95 USD /$25.30 CAD for 4 at Cooking.com
No. 3 – Another popular model are the Bakeware Ramekins by Chantal. It looks great in lime. It also comes in apple red, indigo blue, vanilla (beige) and plain white. $19.95 USD / $20.15 CAD for 4 at Cooking.com
No. 4 – My last choice might not be as modern but it earns its place for convenience. Like the ramekins by Rachel Ray, the two-tone stoneware ramekins by Trudeau are oven safe to 500°F. $4.95 CAD at Linen Chest
I am still undecided. Therefore, I welcome your input.

Assuming the Chantal are still made in Europe, I would choose those for that reason. However, I will admit that Rachel Ray’s probably would be much easier to grab and remove from the over. And I’ve seen people slide a spoon through the holes which is sort of cute.
Personally, I prefer the more classic ribbed styles made in France, such as Apilco and Pillivuyt, which I have in white but also red and amber.
