What is it about mini things? Anything with the description “individual” or “tiny” or “personal” gets me every time. Maybe because they’re so small and so cute, but probably because you don’t have to share with anyone else when you have your own thingy. This is exactly why you need a good stash of personal cookware.
Here are some personal cookware and serveware treasures I have found that get oohs and ahhs each and every time!
I just about died when I saw these tiny cast-iron skillets. They’re great for individual cobblers, pies, cornbread, beans, eggs, anything you’d bake in a casserole dish, you can do in these little babies. Just make sure you season them like regular size skillets; 3.5″ skillets, Target $5.
Funny story about these. My cute hubby bought these personal mini cocottes for me as a gift because I’d been eyeing them for months. I tried to return them (I hope he’s not reading this) because I’m not a huge fan of red, but ended up keeping them because the store wouldn’t let me exchange them. So glad I did. These are perfect for serving bubbly mac & cheese, crusty French onion soup, or flaky chicken pot pies. Tiny. And. Perfect. These have been discontinued, but here’s something similar: Staub Mini Round Cocottes $195/3.
How cute are these individual paddle boards? So cute. I used them as a cheese board hors d’oeuvre for an elegant outdoor dinner; Target $13.
You shouldn’t have to tolerate sharing your salt. You just shouldn’t. That’s why you need your own teeny bowl for seasonings. Here, I put 3 different finishing sea salt flavors in a row: white flakes, lemon zest, and Pinot Noir; Mini wood bowl World Market $8/4.
You know you want to buy all of these tiny, personal things. Go on, you deserve it! Sharing is overrated.
