Staub Shallow Wide Oval Cocotte with Glass Lid, 4QT
+ $ shipping surcharge
Cast iron to treasure forever.
Heads up! Promotions do not apply to this item.
By now, you know the drill about Staub’s world-renowned cookware: the cast iron is superior at cooking food evenly and keeping it warm long after it comes off the heat; the enamel coating makes it darn near indestructible and highly chip resistant, not to mention perfect for serving; and the cast iron bottom makes it compatible with all types of heating surfaces (including induction). We particularly like the large surface area of this shallow oval design, which makes this dish ideal for cooking whole fish or browning and braising a big, beautiful mess of short ribs. The snug-fitting glass lid keeps moisture locked in, and also lets you easily check on your food without disturbing the cooking process.

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
