- 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 happycooker from Universal Marvel! I was traveling in Alaska when I received an e-mail that this pan was on sale! My traveling companions thought I was crazy to take time out from my vacation to buy this beauty--But they are the crazy ones for not getting one also! I leave it out on my stovetop 12inch burner and it is always ready to go. It looks marvelous and it cooks everything like a dream-stews, bratwurst, sausage and peppers, chowder-I use it for everything!Date published: 2019-08-23Rated 4 out of 5 by Texas Coast girl from Not a Texas sized pan! I was disappointed to discover the cooking surface of this pan is not as big as you might think based on the listed dimensions. If y'all are lIke me and love a one pot meal that feeds a hungry family of 4, this isn't the pan for you. I have 3 men that have Texas sized appetites & this pan only cooks enough for 4 people if they have light appetites & they don't want left overs. Good thing I ordered 2..lol! But I was really looking for just one pot that'd do it. I HATE spending precious time washing more dishes than I have too. I'd far rather spend that time enjoying the ocean with my family. I just ordered a huge cocotte and am hoping it'll work for me. I do love this pan, just not the size. The lid is nice and roomy, yet not heavy. I have glass plates that weigh more. I have many staub pans but not one large enough for searing meat, I may try the 13.5 inch fry pan next. I also have every color of the pumpkin cocottes & multiples of the orange. They are beautiful to serve sides for the holidays, but not very big. I also have the 5 quart orange pumpkin and it makes for a nicer portion size for holiday sides if your making plenty of 'em!Date published: 2019-08-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Miralin from My go-to pan I purchased the Staub universal pan in sapphire blue 4 1/2 years ago, and have used it several times a week ever since. It is excellent for braises, bolognese, sauté, etc. Nearly every meal my family eats is cooked at home, so this beautiful pan has been frequently in use. It looks like new, and is a joy to use.Date published: 2019-08-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Winwon2 from Favorite pan I use this pan roughly 2-3 times every week. It really does everything well. I can’t recommend this pan enough. It does a great job browning and is usually very easy to clean. I couldn’t be happier.Date published: 2019-06-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Tropicalgirl from Ceramic or glass stove top safe In W&S description, under dimensions it states that this pan is not safe for glass cook tops, untrue, Staub is compatible with all cooktops. The Staub Universal Pan was my first piece of Staub cookware and I bought it because it is compatible with my glass stovetop. Perfectly smooth on the bottoms and have never scratched my glass top. I have replaced all my cookware, except for my sauce pans and turkey roaster with Staub because it is absolutely the best cast iron by far, beats the heck out of the LC brand. The Universal Pan and the 13" Paella Pan are the most used pans in my kitchen and are also my favorites to give as gifts. The grenadine color is gorgeous and my favorite, but all the colors are beautiful.Date published: 2018-06-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Yayen99 from An awesome everyday pan! My friend gifted me with a Staub oval cast iron cookware. I love to cook and so I immediately noticed the difference in flavor of the food cooked from my stainless steel cookware from the cast iron Staub. It always taste amazing! I love how it heats up evenly and cooks perfectly! I purchased the 10 in Staub cast iron pan and the Universal pan. I can't wait to get the cocotte pretty soon!Date published: 2018-03-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Beaa from Staub Universal Cast Iron After replacing so called non stick pans repeatedly because their anti stick material was coming apart from the pan, I decided on cast iron. I am more than happy with the cast iron pan! I sealed it by heating up equal parts of vinegar and water and letting it rest for an hour. Then drained and dried the pan and placed 3 tbl. of flaxseed oil inside and applied it to the surface. Flaxseed oil is edible food grade linseed oil. It sealed the surface and it works beautifully. I do use olive oil, butter, coconut oil when cooking. Nothing sticks. I cooked eggs, pork, chicken, beef. If anything is slightly stuck, a bit of baking soda or barkeepers friend removes it. Be sure to follow written instructions on this pan, meaning let it heat up and cool down gradually. The only fear is the glass lid breaking as I doubt they will replace it. The sapphire blue is wow!Date published: 2018-01-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie from Must have! I almost returned this thinking I didn’t need another casserole dish and I am so glad I didn’t. It is so versatile and works for so many things I cook on a regular basis. I used it twice in the same day! I love Staub cookware and this delivers. I provided even heating on the stove and works great in the oven. I like that it has the glass lid so I can see without losing heat or steam.Date published: 2017-12-27
Is the diameter of 11 1/4 the same at the bottom of the cooking surface as it is when measuring across the top of the pan?No, I wish. The sides aren't completely straight and it curves towards the bottom of the pan causing it to narrow. The top of the pan (opening and lip) measures 11 1/4 inches, the bottom interior cooking surface is only 9 1/2 inches. It isn't 11 inches. The only way they could've gotten an 11" measurement is if they measured the EXTERIOR of the pan and included not only the flat bottom but also the curved sides. This was a bit disappointing to me as I thought the cooking surface would be larger. I do love the pan but it really isn't for a large family. It barely fits enough meat for 4 people with no left overs. Not the Texas sized pan I was hoping for!Date published: 2019-08-23
