The Staub Braiser/Saute Pan with Glass Lid is made from thick cast iron, a hard-wearing material that retains high levels, and then coated in three layers of enamel—this makes it possible to clean normally without any need to season (like you would raw cast iron). The enamel has been sprayed on rather than bonded, which makes it more durable. This construction allows it to hold on to heat in a way that translates to better, more constant browning; faster reducing; and hotter frying. Designed to be passed down generations, it can withstand decades or more of heavy use.
Why we love it
'This pan is superb for searing meat or casseroles. In short, it's a great all-rounder. Enameled so easy to clean with hot water and a little soap.'

About The Brand
Staub hails from Alsace, France, a region world famous for its gastronomy. They specialise in cast iron and ceramic cookware for both home cooks and professionals, and are most well known for their iconic enamelled cast iron pots, or cocottes. What makes their cocottes different is the use of slightly textured black enamel, which lets cooks enjoy all the benefits of cast iron cookware, such as the high heat tolerance and retention, without the effort of seasoning or avoiding washing up liquid, which would normally cause cast iron to corrode. Their patented lids are ‘self-basting’, meaning they are designed to circulate liquids within the pot, preserving flavour and moisture. (In tests conducted after a cooking time of 55 minutes, 10% more moisture was found in a Staub cocotte than in competitive products.) Their extensive range of enamelled cast iron frying pans, griddles, fondue pots, tagines and more are similarly user-friendly.
Staub products combine traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology. During production, each piece of cookware is inspected visually or technically 100 times to ensure that their strict quality standards are met.Shop Staub
