HIC’s French Onion Soup Crocks are specially designed for baking, broiling, serving and enjoying French onion soup. Traditionally served in crocks with lids, this popular soup base is made from beef broth and caramelized onions. A crusty French bread is floated on top, cheese draped over the entire crock, then melted under the broiler just to a bubbly golden brown. These fine-quality porcelain soup crocks allow uniform heat distribution so foods bake evenly, and they transition beautifully from oven or broiler to the table. Sturdy handles offer easier maneuvering into and out of the oven and under the broiler and when serving at the table. The matching lids help keep hot contents warmer longer. Their 14-ounce capacity is perfect for other favorites, like seafood bisque, potato soup, clam chowder, chili, and beef stew, or individual portions of pot pie, shepherds pie, even baked mac and cheese, oatmeal, ice cream, rice pudding, pot de creme, and more. Cover leftovers with foil and store them in the fridge. When it’s time for reheating, just pop them in the oven. HIC’s French Onion Soup Crocks perform beautifully as serveware at every dining occasion, from breakfast to lunch or brunch, for holiday meals, party buffets, even outdoor entertaining. They transition beautifully from oven or broiler to the table and complements any setting. A tradition since 1957, HIC fine-quality porcelain Serveware won’t transfer odors or flavors between uses. They are safe for use in the microwave, oven, broiler (to 500-degrees Fahrenheit), freezer and are dishwasher safe to make cleanup a breeze. Set includes 4 Onion Soup Crocks with matching lids.
