Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

Au gratin pans come in many shapes and sizes, from round to oval to rectangular and square. Typically, they’re an inch and a half deep and can be made of copper, stainless steel, aluminum, glass, or enameled iron. The materials of the pan aren’t crucial to its function because the ingredients are cooked almost to completion before being put in the au gratin pan. An au gratin dish has a distinct crusty top that’s composed of cheese, eggs, and occasionally breadcrumbs. The ingredients are put into the pan only to crisp up the crust. The pan itself is meant to be an attractive serving dish. Pans with handles are easier to carry to the table. As far as aesthetics, pick a pan that appeals to you or matches your other serving dishes.
