Staub is a household name in France and around the world for their black enamelled cookware, which has all the benefits of cast iron—namely the ability to absorb and retain intense heat, resulting in gorgeously browned food—but there is no special clean-up required. The enamelled finish prevents the pan from rusting and, thanks to its heavy-duty construction, it will not warp. (Though it is dishwasher-safe, we recommend hand washing only.) The slightly textured matt interior makes it more stick-resistant than other enamelled pans. The wide surface and small base of the pan makes it excellent for stir frying food, as it allows oil to heat quickly before distributing it around the pan. It also allows you to use less oil when deep-frying, and is the perfect base for a bamboo steamer basket. It includes a glass lid that lets you keep an eye on your food as it cooks, as well as a tempura rack for keeping food warm while the remainder cooks.

Why we love it'I love that it stays very stable on the hob, and if I need to, I can put it in the oven too. Because woks can be used for so much more than stir-frying.'

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
