ramekin and cocotte - are they different

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I would like to know whether a ramekin and cocotte are one and the same or do the two actually refer t different types of cook (bake) and serve dishes?

 

Thanks

I believe a ramekin is round, usually with a fluted exterior and no handle. A cocotte is typically oval and a bit shallower, usually with some form of handle. Ramekins are used for things like creme brûlée. A cocotte would be used for individual servings of casseroles or au gratin dishes.
