Staub Enameled Specialty Cocottes
The Staub Cast Iron Pumpkin, Tomato, and of course our favorite new Artichoke Cocotte were designed not only for collectors, but for those that would like to bring a little whimsey to their table. These Cocottes are more than mere decoration. They are heirloom quality Dutch Ovens, cast and enameled in France by skilled craftsmen. The interior enamel is Staub's proprietary textured matte finish that promotes browning.
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 pot salso make a handsome serving vessel at the table.
We are especially excited to introduce the new 3 qt Artichoke cocotte, joining the 3 qt Tomato and 3.5 Pumpkin Cocottes.
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 enamelled cast iron is made in France. New to Staub is fine ceramic bakeware designed to coordinate with the cast iron line.
