We collaborated with Staub, French masters of cast-iron craftsmanship, to design our signature line of high-performance enameled cast-iron cookware. Each piece is optimized for specific methods of cooking, with thoughtful features to streamline tasks. This shallow Dutch oven has a wide, round shape to make room for browning and braising cuts of meat. It's perfect for smaller one-pot meals – stews, braises, casseroles, curries and more.

- Heavyweight cast iron absorbs, transfers and holds heat exceptionally well for uniform cooking.
- Multicoat enameling creates glossy, vibrantly colored ombré exterior finish that resembles fine ceramic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crazy Black Horse from Sauté in half the time! Purchased this a month ago and it has now become my ‘go to’ pan. Prepare hash browns in half the time it takes in a non-stick Williams Sonoma Calaphon fry pan. Start a pasta sauce by browning meat and sauté vegetables before creating the sauce and there is still room to meld the pasta! I don’t have to worry about staining the enamel with the flat black glazing, like I do my other Le Crueset dutch ovens. Love the glass lid to check on progress. I may even try using it for a small paella.Date published: 2019-10-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Lexylou2 from My favorite I've owned this Shallow Oven Pan for several years now and couldn't be happier with how it wears and cooks. With the non-stick interior, it's easy to clean and the glass lid makes peeking easy. I use it often because it is so versatile. The price is excellent compared to other brands and just as good in my opinion.Date published: 2018-12-23Rated 5 out of 5 by mtnboxer from One of the best pans I own I have 2 of these and use them almost everyday. Love the way they cook and ease of cleanup. To store I put a cloth over the pan then place the lid inverted on top..just make sure the pans stay nice.. Very happy with this pan.Date published: 2018-01-28Rated 3 out of 5 by Tina from Expected better quality. I bought this about three months ago but didn't use until recently. After four uses with proper handling and caring (strictly followed instructions) edges have chipped. If I could I would return it back but it has passed 30 days after I bought it.Date published: 2017-11-21
What is the width of the bottom of the pan (cooking surface) and the height of the pan only (without the lid)? Also, what is the weight of the pan only (without the lid)? And lastly, this is a TRUE staub, correct? Made exactly like their other cookware? Hi Emlb, The bottom diameter is 10”. The height of the pan without the lid is 3”. The weight of the pan without the lid is 10 lbs. We designed this braiser but it is crafted in France by Staub.Date published: 2019-11-05
Can you use metal utensil to cook?Hi Creativecooking, Use plastic, wood or nylon utensils only as metal utensils may damage the enamel.Date published: 2019-10-04
Can the lid be stored inverted on the pan without scratching the bottom on the pan?
