Staub Perfect Pan with Glass Lid, 4.5QT
Found: the perfect pan.
Heads up! Promotions do not apply to this item.
We’re inclined to think all of Staub’s pans are perfect, but we’re especially enamored of this wok-shaped one. It’s just as aces at braising, roasting, and simmering as the Staub pots you know and love, but the pan’s wide, angled shape also makes it ideal for large-batch deep frying, and vigorous stir-frying without spilling. Between batches, rest your foods on the included stainless steel rack—the oil drips right back into the pan, saving you from the plate-paper towel draining combo. The snug-fitting glass lid keeps moisture locked in and lets you easily check on your food without disturbing the cooking process, and the cast iron bottom means the pan works with any heating surface (including induction). That’s pretty perfect to us.
Available in graphite, matte black, grenadine, and blue with a stainless steel knob, or graphite with a brass knob.
