Clearly Retro

These glass baking dishes (above) from Crate and Barrel have a sort of retro feel to them. They are very affordable ($9 for the small, $13 for the large) and are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. What I like about them is the tight fitting lid, it would be very handy to bake in these and then be able to stick them right in the fridge.

I also spotted these refrigerator dishes (below). Refrigerator dishes aren't something you see too much of any more. I have some vintage Pyrex ones but for the most part, I rely on Tupperware for my food storage. The great thing about refrigerator dishes is that beyond being stylish, they can go from the fridge to the oven. They can even be frozen, microwaved and stuck in the dish washer.
