You can learn a lot about a couple by stalking, I mean looking at, their wedding registry. How else are you going to find out if they prefer drip coffee to espresso, what color their fluffy bathroom hand towels will be, and if they ever plan to host a holiday? It’s an absolute gold mine of information.

Recently while mining for even more information, we asked our friends at Zola, an online wedding registry platform, for some insider intel on the latest registry trends. We learned this fun fact and felt that we needed to share with you all: This Le Creuset covered rectangular casserole dish is THE most popular casserole dish on the site.

So why is this particular casserole dish so highly coveted?

As you might imagine, we’ve reviewed a plethora of casserole dishes, and while this exact Le Creuset model didn’t make The Kitchn Best List, its less expensive sister, the Heritage Rectangular Dish ($50), did.

Our expert reviewer, Sharon Franke, says this about her pick: “If you’re looking for a splash of color, this is the collection for you.” And we have a feeling that that’s a major reason why this 3.5 quart lidded beauty, which comes in 10 signature Le Creuset colors, is so popular among engaged couples.

In addition to the dreamy color options, the brand’s impeccable reputation for high-quality cookware can’t hurt either. Le Creuset’s enameled stoneware is renowned for maintaining even temperatures and for being microwave-, freezer-, dishwasher-, and even broiler-safe. And for any couple who dreams of throwing dinner parties, this sturdy option can go from oven to table, which makes it even more appealing. The fact that this casserole dish comes with a lid is the cherry on top.

With so many surprise proposals this time of year, we thought this casserole dish was worth pointing out. Get one for an engagement present — or for yourself. You’ll just have to decide which color to get.
