Made in France, the Staub Cast Iron Round Cocotte has legions of fans, from professional chefs to home cooks, all over the world. Made from thick cast iron, a hard-wearing material that retains high levels, it is 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 lets a Staub cocotte hold on to heat in a way that translates to better, more constant browning; faster reducing; and hotter frying. The patented lid has bumps that collect condensation and make it 'rain' back into your food, creating a self-basting effect that retains moisture exceptionally well. Designed to be passed down generations, they can withstand decades or more of heavy use. Use it for soups, stews, curries, sauces, slow-cooking, baking bread, and so much more.

Why we love it
'When you use a Staub cocotte, you know at once there's nothing quite like it, from the way it keeps food warm (long after you move it to the table) to how easily it cleans up. After years of use it is still in perfect condition, without much extra effort.'

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
