Celebrate the fall harvest with a collectible kitchen-to-table cocotte in the natural shape of a pumpkin. Cast iron's unparalleled ability to retain heat makes this piece a great choice for slow-cooking the season's signature soups, stews, pot roasts and braises. As practical as it is beautiful, the cocotte features Staub's innovative enamel coating for superior performance, style and durability.
- Sculptural base and lid replicate pumpkin shape, complete with "stem" handle crafted of solid brass.
- Glossy multicoat enameling ensures strength and heat resistance – and creates a vibrantly colored "majolique" finish.
- Enamel coating resists rust, chipping and cracking and requires no additional seasoning.
- Black matte interior enamel contains traces of quartz to provide additional heat resistance and a textured surface that improves browning.

- 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.

Staub Ceramic Stoneware Pumpkin Cocotte
Rated 3 out of 5 by VeggiePie from Review of Burnt Orange Color If you've been following along in my quest to find a Staub Pumpkin Cocotte without an unacceptable number of flaws, here's my advice: stay away from the white color. I received the burnt orange color. It's really pretty. While I would prefer a white one, the burnt orange will have to do. The white pumpkin has far too many flaws. Take a look at the photos in this review and compare them to my 2 previous reviews. While the burnt orange pumpkin cocotte is not without its flaws, they are acceptable to me. In the photos you'll notice both handles are missing some paint. Apparently, that is normal for the rounded handles on the pumpkin cocotte? On both the top and the bottom of the cocotte there is a brown spot. It looks like debris/contamination. It's annoying, but not horrible. I own 3 Staub Cast-Iron Round Cocottes in 3 sizes; a 9QT in Grenadine; a 7QT in Turquoise; and a 4QT in Sapphire Blue. It's hit or miss with quality. The sapphire blue and turquoise cocottes were both flawless. The grenadine cocotte is missing a strip of grenadine on one of the handles. Something I didn't notice until after the 30-day return window. If you care about flaws (I recognize some people do not) then you will want to inspect each piece you purchase closely. If flaws bother you, they will bother you every time you cook in the pot. I would recommend this to a friend, but with reservations due to quality control issues. Happy Shopping!Date published: 2019-09-13Rated 1 out of 5 by VeggiePie from Updated Review I just received the replacement for the white 5 QT pumpkin cocotte I posted about previously under the handle "VeggiePie." I'm writing a new review because I wanted to show the defects this pumpkin has as well. I don't think I received a one-off given the replacement has even more defects than the one I originally ordered--to include pitting on the bottom and two weird brown spots that don't come off on the lid. I am planning on purchasing an orange 5 QT next. I really want one of these things. Silly as that might sound after all of this. Of course, I'll post a review. Lastly, another reviewer mentioned her orange pumpkin cocotte had a brown hue. I second that. I've seen it in person and it does have a deep orange hue that could be interpreted as brownish. It is not the natural orange color most would associate with a pumpkin from the grocery store. Also, the orange pumpkin I saw in person did not have the pitting I've seen on both the white pumpkins I've received. Although the underside of the handles on the orange pumpkin were missing some orange glaze. Just not to the extent seen on the white pumpkins.Date published: 2019-09-06Rated 1 out of 5 by VeggiePie from Poor Quality Control; WS Customer Service Lacking I've been wanting a Staub pumpkin cocotte for a couple years and finally decided to get a white one. I was so excited to get it in the mail today. When I opened the box and saw the lid, my excitement turned to disappointment. The lid had one cluster of small pinholes and another area that looked like sand painted over. My disappointment deepened when I saw both handles were missing paint on the inside. As if receiving a defective item isn't enough of a disappointment, my call to William Sonoma Customer Service did not improve the situation. The WS customer service representitive decided that instead of letting me order a second pumpkin right away (which I asked to do at my own expense so I could get it soonest) they would send one out to me when they receive my return. I called WS back and spoke to another representitive hoping they would help me when I asked for "advanced replacement" (their term, not mine) option mentioned in the return confirmation email they sent me. It is as if the representitive didn't hear me. She told me that my replacement would be sent out when they received my order. Enough of this! I'm going to order another white pumpkin cocette online so I can receive it soonest. Yes, I'll have to make a special trip to my local WS store to return the pumpkin they send as a replacement. But, at least I'll get the item sooner and it will be a lot less hassle than dealing with WS customer service.Date published: 2019-08-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellie from Amazing I love everything about this product… Great addition to my collection.Date published: 2019-01-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat H from Added to my collection I purchased this STAUB cast iron pumpkin to add to my collection. I would love to add the small 16 oz ceramic pumpkins but unfortunately they are not made in France like the cast iron pumpkins.Date published: 2018-12-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Jane6 from Amazing This is a sturdy piece and great for cooking and decorDate published: 2018-05-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Baba52 from Amazing craftsmanship! I purchased the pumpkin and the tomato cast iron casseroles for my daughters as gifts. The price was spectacular and they were delivered in less than a week. They are beautiful works of art and well made. I know my daughter will never expect this gift as prices elsewhere were out of reach. These are actually for next Christmas, I found your site by accident after being disappointed by another seller on a similar item. I also realized that my children graced me with a set of knives from your company years ago.....I use them everyday, they are spectacular. As you can tell, we are a family that loves to cook.Date published: 2018-01-28Rated 5 out of 5 by jenninsd from As beautiful as it is functional I purchased the orange pumpkin last year. It is truly a work of art. So pretty and classy looking. It also cooks equally as well. Put mashed potatoes in it for thanksgiving dinner this year. Love! I want to get the black and white next year!Date published: 2017-12-10
