The gorgeous pink casserole dishes are limited edition, so get in there fast to avoid disappointment...

Dreading cooking Christmas dinner? These ombre-style pink casserole dishes from Le Creuset might change your mind. Perfect for soup starters, festive red cabbage or delicious roasties, they'll come into their own in more ways than one.

The ‘Berry’ shade is actually more reminiscent of Millennial pink, which has been one of the big colours of the last few years. We wonder if this is where Le Creuset drew their inspiration from?

Even those among us who aren’t the greatest lovers of cooking would be persuaded to tackle the turkey with these beautiful new additions to the kitchen. Imagine how impressive you’d feel serving your guests from one of these stylish pots.

Le Creuset says the colour is ‘drawing on shades of blush pink found in garden flowers and inspired by lush summer and winter berries’. Now, Le Creuset fans will know that the brand does already offer a shade of pink, however this colour way is exciting as it incorporates the brand’s signature ombré effect.

The limited-edition collection is made up of this Signature Round Casserole that can be used for everything from risottos to baking tarts.
