If you’ve got a variety of dietary needs to meet, this is the pan for you!
This innovative Lasagna Trio Pan offers three trenches of space for three different types of lasagna, so if you need to feed carnivores and vegetarians as well as provide a gluten-free option, you’re all set.
In addition to the pan, you’ll get a custom spatula designed to fit inside each trench.
Cleanup is relatively easy, and it is dishwasher safe, but just a bit of soap and water will do as well.
You can reheat the remaining lasagna in the pan by adding water to the empty slot before putting the pan in the oven. This will help prevent the unused portion from burning or adding extra wear and tear.
Because this pan is made of a nonstick coating, you’ll have to be careful not to scratch it.

STAUB has long been known for durability and beauty, and this baking dish is no different.
The flared handles are also quite short and might be slippery when you’re trying to remove it from a hot oven. Rather than fabric potholders, consider investing in silicone BBQ mitts for better grabbing power.
Where is it made? This piece is designed by Staub in France but manufactured in China.
Multiple color options
The STAUB ceramics baking dish is beautiful and extremely durable. These are often legacy pieces, easily handed down from one cook to another when taken care of.
Fans of cast iron cookware will love this baking dish. Unlike most cast iron pans, this does not need to be seasoned.
Most cast iron seasonings wouldn’t survive a tomato-based sauce because the sauce will etch through the seasoning, leaving you with metallic-tasting meal and a pan that needs more attention. This one has an enameled finish to avoid the situation.
While this pan is quite a handful, the construction style is quite helpful. The angled slopes make it easier to remove slices of lasagna, and large handles make it easier to get this pan out of a hot oven.
A good lasagna pan needs to transfer and hold heat, easy to load cold and move while hot, and store easily.
The combination of pasta, proteins, cheeses, and sauce can make a hearty pan of lasagna extremely heavy, which means you will need to grip well. So, you should look for a pan with well-formed handles.
Considering using a cheap aluminum lasagna pan? We don’t recommend it for two reasons.
Your lasagna baking temperature will need to be 375 degrees F (190 degrees Celsius) or more. Some of the cheaper pans don’t have such a high-temperature tolerance.
Aside from the cheap aluminum pan, you will need a baking sheet underneath to safely transport it from the oven to your countertop or stovetop.
If you’re looking for a basic lasagna pan to round out your baking supplies, consider investing in a pan that will do more than lasagna.
Read on to see more about the best size pans for baking lasagna.
Lasagna Pan Sizes
The most important part of a lasagna pan is the depth. This is why when looking for an alternative, roasting is often the best option because it has straight sides and 3” or greater depth.
The best lasagna pan size is 9” x 13” with a minimum depth of 3”. This size will allow you to make a lasagna with several layers and big enough to feed 5 to 10 people depending on portion sizes.
While most cake and loaf pans may work for lasagna, they are typically too shallow or too narrow, leading to a tomato-based oven disaster. Go wide and deep when choosing your next pan.
How To Transport Lasagna
If you’re going from oven to table, a metal lasagna pan can be a great purchase. You probably already know that a good set of oven mitts and a potholder is needed to prevent burns and accidents.
However, if you plan to take your lasagna to a party, potluck, or family gathering, you need to consider that glass and stoneware hold their heat longer. You won’t be able to bake and go at the last minute.
A dedicated lasagna carrier might be the best way to transport a hot bake.
To be able to transport your delicious lasagna, your lasagna pan needs to have a solid and secure lid. Two pans on our list with a baking cover are the All-Clad Stainless Steel Pan and the USA Pans Roasting Pan.
When baking lasagna, your vegetable content will have a large impact on whether to lid or not. Many vegetables have high water content, and adding a lid while it’s still warm may turn your lasagna into an unfortunate soup.
