Even heat distribution
Gently prepare aromatic stewed dishes, thanks to the cocotte’s superior even heat distribution. Cast iron is a carbon-rich iron alloy and so is exceptional at retaining heat, diffusing it slowly and distributing it evenly. Once cast iron is hot, you can turn the heat down to a minimum for gentle simmering and to reduce energy consumption. Cast iron also retains cold: refrigerate before serving and your cast iron product will remain cool at the table.
Self-basting lid structure
Very little oil is required for cooking and only a little water for steaming, which helps intensify nutrients and flavours and makes for healthier meals. The lid has a specially contoured underside to promote continuous dripping of moisture onto the entire food cooking. The lid distributes moisture more effectively than conventional lids, resulting in optimum flavours and juicy cooking results.
An intense colour on the exterior is achieved through 'Majolica' enamelling. The interior matt black enamelling is robust, easy to clean and ideal for particularly crisp searing. This enamelling simultaneously improves the stewing properties and enhances the natural flavour of meat, vegetables and other ingredients, so that flavours unfold perfectly.
Cook stews in the cocotte, sear, try slow-cooked dishes and even bake bread. It can be used on all types of hobs, including induction, and is heat-resistant in the oven up to 250°C. Not suitable for the microwave or dishwasher.
- Care instructions
- Wash before use, dry thoroughly and apply vegetable oil to enhance the enamel properties. Heat or cool gradually to avoid thermal shock.

Renowned for its high-quality cookware, STAUB originates from the Alsace region of France, which is famous for its culinary traditions. The grandson of a cookware merchant, Francis Staub designed his first piece, an enamelled pot or cocotte, in an old artillery factory in 1974. Ideally suited for Alsatian one-pot traditional recipes, the cocotte marries cast iron’s utility with both artisan and innovative manufacturing techniques.
The combination of traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology now defines STAUB products that are favoured by restaurateurs, amateur chefs and home cooks alike.
Manufactured in France, STAUB’s cast iron and ceramic cookware adds an authentic feel to cooking in the kitchen and its endearing designs grace dining tables worldwide.
