This is very cute, more of a small novelty item possibly for display on kitchen window sil or shelves. I wish it was cheaper, but I love the brand because I have a huge soup pot that we consider an heirloom. Also, color is not really exact, but is cute. If I were having a dinner party and had the money for individual containers for soups, casserole, custard, etc. I would buy a set of these. Hope this helps.
