Product Description

Nothing says "I love you" like pot roast! Or perhaps Boeuf Bourguignon, or Chicken with Dumplings, even Lobster Bisque? We know there's a strong connection between the stomach and the heart, so cook your sweetheart's favorite dish for that special day. This aptly-designed pot will not only do a great job cooking the feast, it makes a brilliant presentation, and adds a cheery note to your kitchen anytime of year.

Beautiful enough to bring to the table and durable enough to outlive its 101-year warranty against defects, this heavy, 2-1/4-quart casserole is shaped like an orange pumpkin, perfect for preparing and ceremoniously serving a vegetable stew or other festive dish. Suitable for the oven or for browning meat and sweating vegetables on gas, electric, induction, or ceramic ranges, and delightful to behold on the countertop when not in use, the casserole is made of cast-iron and clad inside and out in Le Creuset's famous bright enamel, which won't absorb odors or flavors and readily scrubs clean. As cast-iron is unexcelled for heat distribution and retention, the casserole cooks foods evenly and gently without hot spots. The knob on its heavy, tight-fitting lid is ovenproof to 450 degrees F. Handles facilitate carrying, and the casserole is dishwasher-safe. Like all of Le Creuset's renowned cookware and bakeware, it's made in France. --Fred Brack

I went mad when I first saw this amazing cassarole. Fans of the other shaped le creusets will love this beauty. Unlike the heart and shamrock designs, the pumpkin has a more realistic 3D shape. But what really impressed me was the daring offset handle on the lid. Genius! Of course, the shaped cassaroles have the same high quality of all of the le creuset pieces. I use mine mostly for stovetop dishes that finish in the oven. Of course, like all le creuset dishes, this one does double duty as tableware--but this time, with even more panache than usual! Okay, I'll quit gushing now. But I just love that pumpkin!

I do not think there is a better way to sample this product line than through the fun casserole pots. They are reasonably priced, much cheaper than the standard 2 quart casserole, and still carries the same quality. These are extremely heavy pans that distribute the heat evenly though what you are cooking. I like the pumpkin for the fall cooking, I also purchased the tomato as well for summer and other seasonal cooking. This holds your standard casserole recipes. This is great for a pot luck, I promise you will be able to identify your dish, and it just flat out looks attractive. The colors are bright and distinct. You will enjoy this pot for many years to come.

I have collected all of Le Creuset's fruit and vegetable shaped cast iron enameled casseroles. This was the first one that I bought and I have used it the most. They are beautiful to display on a table or on a kitchen counter and very practical in cooking delightful casseroles, soups, stews and other wonderful dishes. The color that they can add to a kitchen brightens every vist there. The exterior and interior enamel coating is very durable and easy to clean. I have cooked a multitude of dishes in these casseroles and have found them to be excellent in heat conduction and preventing "hot spots". The wider and lower shaped casseroles are a little better in spreading the heat.

The warranty against defects of 101 years will certainly last beyond my expected needs but it is nice to know that I have the protection since these are not inexpensive purchases.

The comments of guests served from these casseroles is always positive and never fails to bring a smile to my face.

There is a drawback to these whimsical cookers and that is the rim of both the top and bottom of the casseroles. There is no enamel on these rims and they can rust if not dried immediately after hand washing. They are dishwasher safe but I do recommend that you hand wash and dry immediately. I also recommend that you let them sit out for an hour or so to air dry before storing them.

When wet this casserole can be very slippery and the handles on the bottom and top help in preventing dropping them. Be really careful!

Finally, closely inspect your casserole when it arrives. My first garlic casserole had a two inch crack in the enamel. I did not have to contact Le Crueset since Amazon.com immediately sent a replacement to me and had the defective item picked up at my home at no charge. I commend them for standing behind the products they sell.

The pumpkin casserole is my first piece of Le Creuset, and it is awesome. I find it's easier to keep my kitchen clean because I WANT to clean this casserole dish. It displays beautifully on my stove, saving me cabinet space, and it works better than any nonstick pan I've ever used. I am in love with this cookware, and plan to eventually replace almost every cooking item I own with Le Creuset. It is the most artful and functional cookware I've ever encountered. The only thing that might be a drawback for some is the heavy weight of it, but hey, it's good exercise, right? I think it is worth every penny.

I love this! Not only does it function beautifully, but it is a gorgeous work of art as well! This should be in every museum of modern art (some other Le Creuset items already are on display in museums). I use this piece mainly for scalloped potatoes--perfect results every time! It's also great for a medium-sized batch of homemade baked beans. I bought this initially for decorative purposes in my kitchen, but love its cooking results so much that I have since purchased eight other Le Creuset items. They are all wonderful. Cooking is an even greater pleasure for me since I started using Le Creuset. Other than All-Clad LTD frying pans, I'll never buy another brand again.

Le Creuset's cast iron cookware is great stuff. It is heavy, so it distributes heat evenly & holds it well. No hot spots, and the food stays warm at the table. The enamel is very easy to clean (even if you get a bit careless and burn something on). The lid on this fits really well. The pots are individually sandcast, and they are really high quality. Just in case, they come with a really long guarantee (it will definitely last longer than you will). This is not the cheapest cookware you can find, but you won't find better.
This pumpkin shares all the great features of the other Le Creuset cookware, and is a great visual pun besides. It looks good on the fall table (think Halloween and Thanksgiving). As someone else pointed out, it's easy to find when it's time to go home from a potluck.
