Just to let you know that I have been experimenting with dishes for using in the HO... I found that food cooked in my earthenware dishes took so long that I might as well have used my slow cooker instead.
I picked up a couple of balti dishes from amazon for just under £5 for a pair of stainless steel ones and they worked a treat. The first meal I tried was shepherd's pie. And, from cold, it heated up brilliantly at 180c for 15 mins.
I also found that, as they have a ring round the top of the dish, it was easy to pick the dish up with the tongs. Therefore, I am planning to use it to cook casseroles in the oven (I'll just use tinfoil or a pot lid to cover while cooking.)
Note, that I can only put one in as they are quite big and I wouldn't use them for children as the handles obviously heat up... The reason I used the balti dishes instead of foil containers is that you can eat directly from them.
Definitely ideal for cooking for one or 2 people.
I hope this helps

£5 for a pair of stainless steel balti dishes is a very good deal. I paid £8.00 for one at a shop in Green Street, East Ham. That's where we buy our spices
