Staub's innovative enamel coating takes cast-iron cooking to the next level with improved performance, style and durability. This petite French oven is perfect for cooking grains and other sumptuous sides. The round bottom and textured lid are similar in design to the traditional Japanese cast-iron tool for cooking rice – both circulate and distribute moisture for fluffy, airy and delicious results. The oven is also great for simmering jams, soups and stews.

- 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 1 out of 5 by sar17 from Arrived with rust on lid This is so cute and perfect for what I need, except the one I received had rust on the lid. Super dissapointed as I thought both WS and Staub were reputable companies that wouldn't sell defective/tarnished items. Contacted Staub's customer service and never received a response...Date published: 2018-11-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Petite Pot from The perfect small pot! I bought this pot to replace a high end non-stick coated pot of similar size. I wanted something with a more durable cooking surface that wouldn't degrade with use. So far the enameled interior of this pot works beautifully! I thought I would use it primarily to make rice dishes, but it's been perfect for soups, stews, curries, as well as rice. When following the use instructions provided by Staub, use and clean-up are a breeze. It does weigh a bit more than anodized aluminum, but it also cooks better. I'm looking forward to years of cooking. It is the perfect size for preparing dishes for 1-4 people.Date published: 2018-01-23Rated 5 out of 5 by DBorlando from Makes the best rice and simmering soups In deciding between Le Creuset and Staub, as an amateur cook, I've gone with Staub. They look more sophisticated than Le Creuset, have the black enamel interior (easier to clean and hides stains), and the underside of the lids have spikes for condensation to keep the food moist. The Petite French Oven is the best cookware I've ever cooked rice in. It's also ideal for simmering stews and soups. I use this Staub piece a lot more than I thought I would.Date published: 2017-08-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Emma from Perfect Size This is the perfect size for 1-3 serving meals. Did great for Cream of Wheat, Rice, Barley, Oatmeal ETC... The shape is easy to stir and does not have corners where food can get stuck while cooking. This item looks great too! It is a little on the heavy side, but that's what you get with cast iron.Date published: 2017-08-22Rated 5 out of 5 by schwaggy from Amazing for rice! First use and I made short grain brown rice. It was quite simply the best rice I've ever cooked and this piece had everything to do with that. Can't wait to try it for oatmeal.Date published: 2017-04-06Rated 5 out of 5 by simple home chef from Question Hi - I have other pieces of staub but they are in white, will this petite french oven ever come in white?Date published: 2017-03-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Trinipeggy from Need this pot in basil I am building my staub Collection cookware and need this pot in basil. William Sonoma can you tell me when this pot will be available in basil.Date published: 2017-03-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitchenchef from Adorable Pot for Rice etc. I have several Staub cast iron pieces, which I love but am sometimes deterred from using because of their size and heft. This petite pot has the same quality and performance in a size I can use every day. Perfect for cooking up to 2 cups of rice; the cast iron seems to absorb more moisture than stainless which makes the rice fluffier, plus it's pretty enough for the table and keeps the rice warm. Like my other Staub pieces, it washes like a dream and the exterior finish is just gorgeous. (The first one I received had a flaw in the finish and William Sonoma promptly provided a perfect replacement.)Date published: 2017-02-09
Is this french oven really only 4 1/4" diameter? That seems too tiny for the stews and rice people have said they use the pot for.The dimensions for the petite cast iron French Oven is 6.4 X 4.7 X 3.2" It is ideal for dinner for one or two.Date published: 2019-04-22
