Staub's innovative enamel coating takes cast-iron cooking to the next level with improved performance, style and durability. Ideal for braising and slow-cooking, this versatile pan transitions seamlessly from the oven to the table for a most-attractive presentation.

  • Heavyweight enameled cast iron transfers and retains heat evenly.
  • Multicoat enameling creates a glossy, vibrantly colored "majolique" finish that resembles fine ceramics.
  • Resistant to rust, chipping and cracking, the coating requires no additional seasoning like some other cast-iron pieces.
  • The specially formulated black matte interior enamel of each piece contains traces of quartz, giving it additional heat resistance and a rougher surface that results in better browning.
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Made in France.

More about Staub

Staub traces its origin to the Alsace region of France, where founder Francis Staub designed his first enameled pot while working in an old French artillery factory in 1974. With the goal of creating the perfect pot for cooking the region's traditional hearty soups, stews and braises, he combined cast iron, the most popular material of the time, with the latest enameling technology available. Today, Staub still makes its cookware at a traditional atelier in France, casting each pot in an individual sand mold, which is heated to 800°F and destroyed after use. The exterior enamel coating is made with glass powder and mineral pigments, applied in two or three coats to generate brilliant glossy colors.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without it! Have had the 2.75 qt. braised for four years--use it for just about EVERYTHING, sauces, cooking fish, stir fry. No limits. Even cooking and easy cleanup--takes a beating and still looks brand new. Am going to buy the 4 qt. braised next for larger groups.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Owned and used for years aboard my yacht I have 3 medium sized pieces of Staub I've had for years, plus a few smaller ones. These are perfect for home and aboard my sailboat. They're heavy so stay in place, and lids are tight so condensation is not as problematic. I heat what I'm cooking up on Med high, , turn the heat on low or off. That's it. Takes little fuel to cook. I've had these for as many years as you've carried them I believe. I've given them for gifts. Very nice gifts. People are grateful. Have had no chipping. The sailing crowd is impressed with the size and practicality. I recommend them highly. I have two colors the dark red and cobalt blue. They're really terrific. I've used them camping too, borrowing a ceramic tagine lid from my store of international cookware to top the round pan and prepare a spicy tagine at the picnic table. Can't go wrong. Catch it on sale!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pan! Received the 4qt sapphire braiser as a Christmas gift last year and have been using it almost every day since. I use it to stir-fry, fry,'s my absolute favorite piece of cookware. The day I received it I used to it make Williams Sonoma's potato leek gratin recipe for christmas dinner. Most recently I used it to make Fine Cooking's baked haricot vert (forgot to take a pic of the final dish) and even used it to make sukiyaki. I've made an apple,pear,cranberry crisp in it and will be using again in a week for a repeat of the potato leek gratin for our Christmas dinner. I've used it for buttermilk name it and you could most likely cook it in this braiser. Several years ago I purchased the staub 4 piece set. I use those pieces maybe twice a month. Honestly, all you need is this braiser and a large cocotte (7qt or larger) and you're pretty much set for cast iron. But, once you get one piece you can't help but want more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staub rules! I am the proud owner of 14 pieces of Staub. The 2 3/4 qt braiser is about my most favorite and most used piece for everyday dining. Sold all my Le Crueset pieces, it is Le Creuset on steroids.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite everyday cookware I cook for 2. This is a perfect size. I love the even heating of the pan.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pot I just received this pot 2 days ago and have already used it twice. The first day I made a sausage and grape tomato sauce for pasta and the next I cooked swiss chard. Both dishes called for different techniques and I was extremely happy with the results. My sausage and tomatoes were seared perfectly and my chard braised just right. Clean up was a dream, let the pot cool and washed with warm soapy water. A big expense for a pot but I am so happy I did!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wanted to love it, but it rusted I own a staub Dutch oven and loved it so I decided to buy a staub braiser after attending a cast iron cooking class from WS. I was excited to put it into good use. However, it takes a really long time until it brings to a boil. I did not season it after use and the food started to stick on the surface. It took me a long time to clean up. After a few use and wash, I realized it has rust on it. I was so disappointed and took it back to the store. The manager helped me to season it and it looked all pretty again. However, it didn't slove the problem. The rust is still there and food continues to stick. Sigh, I regreted buying this so much and wished I had bought Le Cresuet instead. And now, I just put it into my pantry for storage. I will try to call staub to see if they can help me with the rust :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most used Staub I have many Staub pieces from mini cocottes to a gigantic 13 qt cocotte. I found that some pieces are used more frequently then the others. Both braisers (2.75 ,and 4 qt) top the list for usage. I even bought a decorative fish knob for the smaller braiser to make it look pretty since it is being used so much. I use the smaller one for both cooking on a cooktop as well as baking upside down fruit desserts (it is perfect 9" diameter for baking needs). Very useful for a small family of 2-3 people.

  • With the dark interior of the Staub, is it okay to cook with acidic ingredients like tomato sauces? I love the color of the LeCreuset 3.5 braiser w/white enamel inside, but want the spikes in the lid of the Staub.

    Asked by: April
    Hi April, The interior is enameled so acidic foods will not react with the iron.
