Great looking Casserole. Adds real personality to your stove. We leave it out to display when not using it. It is as advertised and pictured (don't understand the other reviewer's comments unless they shipped them the wrong product - tomato instead of the apple maybe...) Cooks well like any Le Creuset pot and is a quality item but not cheap.
I was excited when I initially made the purchase, however, I was very disappointed when it arrived. The handle on the lid in the picture made it look like an apple stem, however the casserole that arrived had a simple common round lid handle, which made it look like a weird red pot. Needless to say, I returned it, and I am still waiting for a refund. Buyers beware.
