There are all kinds of bakers: first-time bakers, weekend bakers, competitive, and professional bakers. At Anchor Hocking we understand not all bakers are alike. That’s why we offer 7 baking collections. Our TrueLocking Lid™, Oven Basics, and Essentials collections have lids or travel options perfect for storage or transport. Our Laurel and Heritage Basketweave™ collections with distinctive glass designs add flare for food presentation. And our Premium and Fire King® collections are for bakers who crave better baking results!
