+ $ shipping surcharge
Brass & blue just for Food52.
Introducing the Food52 x Staub Essential French Oven, the first in our exclusive line of cookware with the heritage French cast iron experts. They've been making beautiful, high-quality enameled cast iron pots from the Alsace region since 1974.
Our French Oven has all the things you know and love about Staub—the indestructible cast iron, top-notch heat distribution, the spiked lid for superior moisture distribution, and the beautiful, easy-to-clean enamel finish. But we gave it the Food52 touch with a deep blue shine and a warm brass handle (a color combo that makes us swoon!).
Stews, sauces, braises, roasts: the French Oven will quickly become your go-to vessel for all manner of dishes (like Delicately Fragrant Mulled Cider). Carry this stunner right to your table, and let its good looks shine.

Meet the Maker
It's hard to look at the French company's picturesque cast iron and ceramic wares and not daydream about the *magnifique* things you'll make in them. Staub specializes in enameled cast iron cookware made in Alsace, which makes for superior browning and heat retention (perfect for those hours-long braises). The pieces work hard, but they’re pretty enough to go straight from stovetop/oven to the table. They take on a variety of shapes and colors, but we're partial to the cocottes with a deep blue hue and brass knobs exclusive to our Shop.View Full Profile
