The Alsace region of France is rich in history, food and craft and is renowned for hearty one-pot meals and fine enamelled ceramics. It is here the Staub journey began when Francis Staub designed his first enamelled cast iron pot in an old artillery factory in 1974 with the latest technology available.
Today the success of Staub’s designs has become the benchmark for enamelled cast iron cookware everywhere and their pots and pans are favoured by the world’s greatest chefs. Staub cookware features a special black matte enamel interior for non-stick braising and self-basting spikes that together provide the perfect environment for slow-cooked, flavourful meals. All Staub products continue to be manufactured in France.
The iconic cocotte is a timeless and essential kitchen pot. We also love the griddles and roasting pans, fondue pots, tagine, wok and sauté pans. Each piece makes for elegant kitchen to table serving.
Staub’s ceramics are produced using traditional techniques. We love the mini cocottes for individual servings and the pie dish in classic white.
Trivets, steamer insert and other essential accessories like silicone handles will help you get more from your Staub cast iron cookware.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you use Staub on induction?
Yes. Staub products can be used on all hobs including induction. Products with a black matte exterior are coated with blue enamel on the bottom which protects sensitive cooktops.
Can Staub cookware go in the oven?
Yes. Further, all lid knobs are made of either brass or nickel-plated stainless steel and are heat-resistant up to 250°C.
Is Staub non-stick?
The surface of Staub’s black matte enamel is not covered with a specific nonstick coating. A little oil is always needed to prepare dishes, but after a while, a natural nonstick coating will form in exactly the same way as a normally seasoned pure cast iron product.
Do Staub pans need seasoning?
All Staub products are enamelled on the outside and the inside.

Yes, but Staub recommends that you hand wash; do not use any abrasive sponges or scouring powders. Staub guarantees the quality of their products; carefully caring for your cookware ensures you will be able to use your Staub products for a long time.
Can Staub rust?
No. Because the cookware features an enamelled coating inside and out, it will not rust.
