Best individual pie plates (for pot pies)

I am a pie making machine!

I would like to buy some bakeware to make individual pot pies. Most recipes call for 12 oz individual pot pie dishes. However, I am struggling to find any. I have spent too many hours today searching online. Hoping you can help.

A few weeks ago, I made chicken pot pies with crappy disposable pie tins from Safeway. I liked the size of the disposable tins. They measure 6" across the top, 4.5 inches across the bottom, and hold 12 oz.

Here is what I am finding:

Emile Henry - 8 oz $20.
Le Creuset - 6 oz $10.
Tuxton - 8 oz $3 (don't trust this brand)
Pyrex 6" 10 oz $12 (from

I cannot find any that are 12 oz.

Do you make individual pies? Which dishes do you like? How big are they? And how much did you pay??

Last - How can I set up these posts so your replies are emailed to me?

Thanks so much everyone!

  1. Wow, Pyrex is the second most expensive? Yikes. Did 12 oz. seem like the right amount? Would something smaller be too small? Why don't you trust Tuxton? Never heard of it; just asking.

    You can't set it up to get emails but any time someone replies, it will bounce to the top of your list. Designed to turn all of us into even more (and better) CH addicts :)

    1. Those 5" Emile Henrys are very attractive but way too pricey. A few other options here:
      If you are just using the crust on top, you can use oven-proof soup bowls/crocks, which are more readily found, including Corningware.

      1. Check Marshalls or TJ Maxx. I also make individual pot pies and found some stoneware pie plates that I love. They are about the size you are looking for and were very the $4 to $5 range.

          I have found rectangular LeCreuset stoneware individual sized casserole dishes I have picked up for this purpose at TJM.. I think I paid about $6 each there.

        2. This isn't clear on how many ounces it holds, but the diameter is 4.4" (it doesn't say whether this is top or bottom):

            Diameters are always top, outermost edge to outermost edge, unless otherwise specified.

            I wonder if these would do? They are 12 oz.

            are also 12 oz. capacity dishes.
