The only negative comment I have about this product concerns its color, which is not the same as that shown on the box. The casseroles I received were much redder than the orange I saw on the box and in the ad for which from my personal-preference viewpoint, I prefer the more orange, less red version. Aside from this one minor complaint, I love this product so much that not only would I buy more of these mini oval casseroles, I would also enthusiastically recommend them to others and give them as gifts. On the topic of size, this is a perfect size for one generous serving or for two careful servings of many types of food ranging from soups to vegetables to hot desserts and some meat dishes such as stews and casseroles. Last, concerning the shape, including practical and design elements, of these mini casseroles, I find that the oval shape is appealing to the eye, and it appears larger than it actual is because of its curved edges. This shape is a useful benefit for people such as me who must carefully limit how much they eat and for those who choose to limit for whatever reason. The design element of the generously spaced handles is clever in that these handles accommodate either small or large fingers. The lid is yet another useful and practical benefit of these casseroles. The handle of the lid also accommodates either small or large fingers and hands. The lid itself holds in moisture, allowing food to cook in its moisture and preventing food from spraying all over an oven or microwave. Overall, this is such a superior product that I am glad that I purchased two orange mini-oval casseroles.
