A crystallizing dish with ammonium perchlorate.

A crystallizing dish is a beaker with a very large diameter and short height. Its large surface allows for the solution to evaporate faster, which is necessary when recrystallizing compounds, hence its name.

While similar to evaporating dishes, the crystallizing dish is not generally used to completely evaporate the solution.


The crystallizing dish is basically a short and flat beaker, with a spout. It is made of borosilicate glass, while plastic types are rarely used.


Crystallizing dishes can be bought from lab suppliers or online.


Glass baking dishes, used in kitchen for cooking, can be used as a replacement for the crystallizing dish.
