These Carriers Will Get Food to Potlucks in Style, June 2017

If you're hosting, a summer potluck party is basically the easiest way to entertain. If you're a guest, though, the hard part falls on you. No, not figuring out what to make — you've got tons of ideas for crowd-pleasing pasta salads and casseroles— the hard part is figuring out how to transport the stuff from your house to your friend's house.

Here’s a gift for all those avid pie bakers out there. Instead of a basket or box, they can tote that freshly made pie to a dinner party in a cloth carrier. Why didn’t someone think of this sooner?

Your famous potato salad deserves to arrive at the barbecue in style. Slide it into the Plat culinary tote from àplat, a convenient canvas sack that will keep your casserole dish or pie plate upright in one hand so can carry a bottle of Chardonnay in the other.

When I saw this tote for the first time, I was blown away. It’s always a hassle bringing over a fresh-out-the-oven baking dish or pie to a friend’s place. You can’t carry it properly in a grocery bag, or any other bag for that matter. The àplat tote’s clever design keeps the pan flat while providing handles to carry it around. If there’s a special baker in your life, this is for them!
