Staub Piglet Shallow Wide Round Cocotte, 6QT
+ $ shipping surcharge
This little piggy goes to oven.
We’re into pigs around here (ever heard of a little cookbook tournament called The Piglet? No? Head here to find out more). So when we saw that Staub topped its shallow wide round cocotte with a stainless steel knob shaped like a pig we squealed with glee! The pot’s wide shape and large size are ideal for getting a crusty sear on chicken thighs, short ribs, and more before braising in the same pot; the lid’s self-basting spikes collect and drip moisture back down onto your food for continuous, natural basting that ensures super succulent results. We particularly like the large surface area of this shallow round design, which makes it ideal for braising a big, beautiful mess of short ribs, or Merrill’s excellent Braised Chicken Thighs with Tomato and Garlic.

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
