Product Details

Staub has enhanced the natural heat-retaining qualities of cast iron by lining it with slightly textured black enamel, which makes the pot rust-proof and easy to clean. A patented spiked lid allows condensation from the simmering dish to create consistent self-basting of food, which retains moisture and flavour. This durable cast iron cocotte diffuses heat as well as it retains it, so you can take this dish from oven to table and it will stay warm for a long time. The oval shape is ideal for larger pieces of meat or poultry and the generous size is great for large family meals or dinner parties. Suitable for all hobs including induction.

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.
