Staub's innovative enamel coating takes cast-iron cooking to the next level with improved performance, style and durability. A heavy lid to seal in moisture paired with heat-retaining cast iron make this oven ideal for slow-cooking homemade chili or a hearty stew.
- Heavyweight enameled cast iron transfers and retains heat evenly.
- Color selections feature multicoat enameling to create a glossy, vibrantly colored "majolique" finish that resembles fine ceramics.
- Matte Black oven features multi-coat enameling with low-gloss matte finish.
- Resistant to rust, chipping and cracking, the coating requires no additional seasoning like other cast-iron pieces.
- Specially formulated black matte interior enamel contains traces of quartz, giving it additional heat resistance and a textured surface that results in better browning.
- Dozens of precisely placed bumps on the lid's interior funnel evaporated juices directly back down on top of food for additional basting.
- 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 1 out of 5 by Junipy from Not the quality I'd expect for the price I got this from my parents for a Christmas gift 3 or 4 years ago. The pot is very attractive and I got it in "Graphite." Within a year the edges rusted and the knob on the lid (which is a little small considering the weight of the lid) rusted inside the lid but since it happened when it wasn't screwed in all the way, the lid would spin whenever I'd pick it up. My only option was to send this heavy lid back to the manufacturer. I didn't because of the expense and the pot was otherwise (mostly) functional. About a year ago a piece of the interior flaked off. This pot was never nonstick despite following recommended use and care instructions but the flaking was the last straw. I'm only rating this one star because of the price. I've owned much less expensive enamel cast iron pots for several years and never had any issues with them. Very disappointing.Date published: 2019-01-01Rated 5 out of 5 by Viktouria from Loving Staub I own several Staub Iron round cocotte along with others and mine has never rusted. I am careful with cleaning. I also have owned some of mine over 3 years and have yet to experience any kind of rust. I have the tea pot the frying pan 2 round cocotte and 2 pots. I find this product on the expensive side however beautiful cookware awesome colors that match my kitchenDate published: 2018-10-30Rated 2 out of 5 by Kate from Rusts! I do like cooking in this pot, but it rusts every time I use it. I've followed every, single suggestion for using it too: followed oiling instructions before first use, slow heating, only wooden utensils, and I never put it in the dishwasher even though that's supposed to be fine. I was under the impression that the interior coating would prevent that. I contacted the company and sent a picture and they think I might have defective pot, but I have to send it to them to find out. I'm very disappointed; I could have spent a LOT less money on a noncoated Lodge but didn't want to have to deal with the rusting, as I've never had any luck seasoning a new cast iron pan. I guess I'll send it back, but WHAT A HASSLE!Date published: 2018-09-05Rated 2 out of 5 by molly from Love and Disappointment This was a wedding gift from my father... I love Staub products but I am disappointed in this cocotte. The enamel coating has come off with just a few uses. I have always brought it up to heat gradually, yet it looks scorched. The cast iron is beginning to rust in spots. The bottom of the pot looks as though it has melted, too. I use an electric range. This pot is definitely NOT resistant to rust or heat.Date published: 2018-08-12Rated 5 out of 5 by TheVig from Great addition to our Staub collection Purchased the 9 qt. round in sesame. It pairs well with the 8-1/2 qt. oval Staub we purchased a couple of months ago.Date published: 2018-07-15Rated 5 out of 5 by kkcathey from Gorgeous! My new 5 1/2 qt. pot in Le Mer arrived yesterday and it is absolutely gorgeous. It is a better size for me than the 4 qt. and the color is mesmerizing. I love it. And it's not too heavy. So thrilled with Staub's quality. Cooking in Staub pots makes me a better cook. Food always turns out better in Staub.Date published: 2018-05-15Rated 5 out of 5 by DBorlando from 3 different sizes... exceptional quality It’s been about a year since I’ve purchased over 30 pieces of Staub cookware, including round and oval cocottes (French ovens), Heritage Braiser, Fish Pan, Universal Pan, Perfect Pan, Steam Grill and Griddle, 10” Fry Pan, 13” Double-Handle Fry Pan, Mini-Cocottes, Sauce Pot, Petite Pot, large and small Square Grill Pans, Round and Oval plates . I know there’s some overlap in what I’ve gotten, but it’s nice to have options, especially as a novice-to-intermediate cook. Consistenently high-quality throughout all of these pieces. I cook on a 36” induction... all pieces provide exceptional even heat distribution. The glazed exterior finishes are stunning, but high-maintainence to keep wiped down. The dark matte interiors look sharp and hide stains, albeit not ideal for fonding. Although I’ve yet to max-out the oven temp at 500 degrees with any of these, they work superbly between 400-450 degrees and retain heat extremely well. The raised spikes found in some of the lids (like the cocottes) are not gimmicky... they create moisture drops back onto the food. Because of the high-gloss finish, any of the non-Black pieces, risk getting chipped, if you’re not careful or if you have difficulty handling the sizeable weight. NOTE: The larger-sized pieces (over 4 qts) may not be suitable for frail people or those with arthritis. Lifting, storing and maneuvering them can be, not only be challenging, but even dangerous. The same issue applies for the fry pans (skillets), in which one might want to get a double-handle fry pan, which also comes in handy for less crowding of the stove top or oven. They all are easy to clean, although the non-stick doesn’t live up to expectations. But a small amount of seasoning with oil will make a huge difference. Overall, I’m highly satisfied with the Staub collection.Date published: 2018-04-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Art5 from staub 4qt.cocotte.. i added this 4 qt to my collection, the cherry color is similar to the red color i have in le cruset, so they all combine. I like the inside black coating. I have another staub 12” fry pan. They are excellent for cooking, are heavy, and long lasting.. after cooking with these products there is no return to teflon & other lite duty pans. They are excellent for cooking healthy..Date published: 2018-03-04
How does the 9qt round compare in effective size to the 7qt oval? Will a large whole chicken fit in the 9qt round?Hi Polly, A chicken would fit in both. 10 lbs roughly.Date published: 2019-02-22
How many will 4 qt. serve?It only good for heating sauces and small things. Honestly the 5.5qt or 7qt. would be better.Date published: 2019-02-22
