The Le Creuset Fish Baker is a gorgeous oblong-shaped, covered baking dish that features a lid embossed with a fish motif and and a large design. It holds about 2 pounds of fish, and you can still snuggle in some veggies on the side. Best of all, ridges along the bottom help elevate the fish — and any other foods you cook inside — which lends to a more even bake and prevents the fish from sitting in its own drippings for a perfectly flaky, non-soggy filet.

Some of Le Creuset’s most interesting (and popular) baking dishes are the ones that offer a bit more flair, like this Pumpkin Casserole. What makes this dish a little different than the ones you may already own is its round design, which, in addition to housing casseroles and roasted veggies, is ideal for making pies and tarts. The lid also comes with a stem-shaped handle and resembles the top of a pumpkin, so it’ll be a total crowd-pleaser come fall entertaining. Take off the lid, and the dish becomes a year-round favorite without the pumpkin-y look.
