Modern, Functional Casserole Carriers for Your Next Holiday Party
There's nothing like sharing a flavorful casserole or beautiful sheet cake with family and friends during the holiday season. But figuring out how to transport it from point A to point B without spilling or damaging your handiwork can be a challenge. And while our holiday gatherings may look a little different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, sharing delicious food with the ones you love always brings comfort to hearts and minds.
Whether you prepared a side dish that's been a Thanksgiving staple in your family for generations or are trying out a new recipe for the very first time, you'll need an easy way to carry a dish from the oven to the gathering place (all while keeping it warm). Our favorite casserole carriers and tote bags designed to fit heavy baking dishes bearing lasagnas, brownies, casseroles, and so much more do just that.

Àplat Canvas Travel Tote
Perhaps the chicest casserole carrier around, this lightweight canvas option looks more like a fashionable market bag than a functional tote, but don't be fooled—it's sturdy and efficient at transporting your dish to and from any festive fête. Save this one for room temperature recipes because it's not insulated.
