The iconic Staub Cast Iron Round Cocotte has been used by renowned chefs worldwide for decades. We love it for that huge bolognese, slow-cooking or even just boiling pasta (it gets back to boil very quickly after adding pasta). Staub have enhanced the natural heat-retaining qualities of cast iron by using unique glazes. A patented spiked lid allows condensation from the simmering dish to create consistent self-basting of food. This durable cast iron diffuses heat as well as it retains it, so if you need to cool down your dish the cocotte can be simply placed in the fridge. Beautifully designed with classic handles and nickel knob on the lid means the cocotte easily moves from oven to table. Suitable for all hobs, including Induction and the oven.
24cm, 26cm and 28cm.-
Why we love it-
- For huge bolognese on the hob or slow-cooking in the oven
- Extremely durable sprayed enamel and unique self-basting system
- Lifetime guarantee
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.
Made in France, all 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
