Staub 3Qt Cast Iron Tomato Cocotte in Cherry Red
The design team at Staub scoured farmer's markets to find their tomato muse, and after much looking they landed on the Brandywine Tomato. The Brandywine is an heirloom cultivar which bears large beautiful tomatoes that are popularly considered among the very best tasting.
The Staub cocotte is unsurpassed for slow-cooking meats and vegetables to tender perfection, and for simmering hearty stews and soups. Cast iron possesses exceptional heat-retaining qualities, so the pot heats evenly throughout. These pots also make a handsome serving vessel at the table.
Induction ready, and enameled both inside and out - so no seasoning required!
For centuries, cooks have taken advantage of the natural heat retention and redistribution properties of cast iron. Its black matte enamel coatings make it indestructible and highly chip resistant and also keep it from discoloring. The cast iron cookware retains the heat beautifully, keeping the dish warm long after it's been taken out of the oven or off the stove. Staub's attractive appearance make it possible for the dish to go straight from the stove to the table. In addition, the black matte enamel inside has a culinary advantage for better braising, roasting & caramelizing. All Staub enameled cast iron is made in France.
