In our home, we use ramekins for everything. There is one filled with red Hawaiian sea salt on the counter as I type this. It looks great plus it's easy to get our fingers in there for a quick sprinkle. We also use them to bake eggs in and as a dessert dish. But most of the ramekins we sell are for creme brulee, creme caramel, individual souffles or another decadent treat. Oven, microwave, and dishwasher-safe. This one holds 6 oz. and is 3 1/2" x 1 7/8".
