Arrived in one heavy, heavy, heavy box, but once you remove them u will die when you see the craftsmanship of the entire set. Color is a very bright cherry red. Lids are glass with black handles. Easy to clean and food is cooked in half the time .paid a little over $160 the day of purchase, but a great long term investment for cooking. You won't be disappointed!
Worse pans ever, after just a few (I mean 2-3) normal uses the red comes off the bottom but worse the white ceramic stains terribly and looks like it is 100 years old. Trusted the Cuisinart name and will probably never buy anything from them again.
