- 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 Hearthlight from Another great piece from Staub! I have the rooster design essential French oven but it is not always large enough when we have company (most of the time, I cook for two). Have not used this yet but it is beautiful and, given my experience with other Staub pieces, this will be durable, versatile and easy to clean. Love the cochon handle - it allows you to grasp the lid securely. By the way, all my pieces are in the graphite color which looks great with stainless steel.Date published: 2019-01-30Rated 1 out of 5 by srmlowry from Two chipped and warped pots I have tried twice to get one of these pots that is actually flat on the bottom and doesn’t have chips missing from the rim of the pot. I decided to keep the second one because I’m tired of fooling with the back and forth shipping. It is slightly domed in the center which results in a slight wobble. I also noticed that the enamel was thin on both of them on the handles, as though they didn’t get the normal amount of coats on them. Undoubtedly, Williams-Sanoma is selling this color as a factory second or ‘B’ grade and not informing their customers before they purchase them.Date published: 2018-01-27Rated 5 out of 5 by CookMyWay from Favorite oven roasting pot I love this pot! It's perfect for browning on top of stove then finishing the dish in the oven. It's not only functional but attractive as well. Because of the weight I leave it out on the stove top so I don't have to store it. I have it in Sapphire blue and love the color. Staub makes a wonderful product.Date published: 2016-03-22Rated 5 out of 5 by AZCookingDiva from STAUB Round Wide I just counted! I now own 13 Staub pieces in my Staub collection (addiction). I love every one of them and sold off all my Le Crueset pieces in favor of Staub. Did not like the light color interiors of LC and the lighter weight of LC. This cookware is amazing! I own both the 4 qt and the 6 qt versions of this particular piece. For those of you that are storage space challenged, Enclume makes an 8 tier hammered steel pot stand that will hold all your Staub cookware in one 20" x20" space. Well in my case, not all. I do nest my oval au gratin dishes on the pot stand, but they are designed to nest together. The Colbalt Blue is my very favorite color, it's gorgeous!Date published: 2016-03-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Dominick from Love Love Love this stuff I bought this for my husband for Christmas and he never stops using it. Its great for soups and sauces. I did a small roast in it the other day. It is self seasoning and only gets better with use. The Self Basting Lids are tried and true and work perfectly. Staub is much more functional and usable than LC. I was never a fan of the enameled interior that LC has. They are more run of the mill than Staub. Most people have no idea who or what Staub is. I have quite a few pieces and have just added more with the After Christmas Sales. Only problem I face is adequate storage space because I don't stack.Date published: 2016-01-13Rated 5 out of 5 by IloveNY4ever from Beautiful, functional cocotte! Love, love, love Staub. And the cochon finial is a nice, sturdy handle. Bought it in basil, a rich, dark green. The pictures don't do it justice. Very convenient that I can brown, then slow cook in the oven. One pot meals work for me - especially when the results are perfection. Wonderful bonuses that it looks so good on the table and that it keeps the food hot. Great addition to my multi-color Staub cookware collection.Date published: 2015-10-22Rated 4 out of 5 by Jobelle from Red is Really Brown I received this dutch oven and the color was wrong, which is why I'm only giving it 4 stars. It's really brown and not red, though the picture and description are red. I'm so disappointed!! Other than the color issue, it's a very heavy and a very well made cocotte. I'm heartbroken that I have to return it! I was hoping to exchange it for a different color but all of the Staub colors are too dark for my kitchen. If their colors work for you, this is a really beautiful and well made dutch oven.Date published: 2015-05-23Rated 5 out of 5 by OkieInColorado from I'm in Love! I have several Le Creuset dutch ovens in different sizes and colors. I was about to buy another and decided to go with the Staub 6 qt. this time. Best decision I have ever made. The color and design is incredible, the inside is black instead of white. This really cooks evenly and the cleanup is easier than Le Creuset. Don't get me wrong, I love my LC, but this Staub is my new favorite. I have a 3 1/2qt LC, a 7qt LC, and a 10 and 13 LC. I think I'm set with my sizes now. I highly recommend this product.Date published: 2015-04-21
I am trying to decide between 6 quart wide and 7 quart regular Dutch oven; the dimensions are a bit confusing... the 6 quart says "12 1/2" diam., 6" high., 6-qt. cap., 17 lb.... the 7 quart says, "11" diam., 5 1/4" high, 15 lb 15 oz."Hi Liz W, We are sorry that we have incorrect dimensions listed for the wide cocotte. We will be updating these shortly. In the meantime, here are the correct dimensions for the 6qt wide round cocotte : Diameter/ width: 11.5” Length (with handles): 14” Height without lid: 4.25”” Height with lid: 7” Weight: 14lbsDate published: 2019-02-22
Why is my Staub Dutch oven not recommended for use on glass cooktops?Hi Nancyp, The reason is the weight of cast-iron. We do not recommend it on glass cooktops because of possible damage such as scratching the top from sliding the heavy pots or even dropping the pots and breaking the glass.Date published: 2019-10-04
What are the dimensions and weight of this item with and without the lid, please? Thank you for your responses.Hi Hearthlight, Height of pan: 6” Height with lid: 8.5” Diameter: 12.5” Length with handle(s): 14.75” Capacity: 6 quart Weight with lid: 17 lbs. Weight without lid: 13 lbs. 8 oz.Date published: 2019-01-26
