Proudly Made in France
Proudly made in France, the iconic 4-quart cocotte is part of the STAUB enameled cast iron series. Located in Northern France, the STAUB factory boasts employees that are fiercely proud of their work. Each piece is unique – the beautiful result of hand and machine. A single cocotte takes a week to make and is handled by over 20 people from start to finish.
Black Matte Enamel Interior
The Staub cocotte is unsurpassed for slow-cooking meats and vegetables to tender perfection, and for simmering hearty stews and soups. The black matte enamel interior ensures exceptional browning and the cast iron construction possesses exceptional heat-retaining qualities, so the pot heats evenly throughout. Clean-up is easy thanks to the easy release enameled surface.
Self-Basting Spiked Lid
The heavyweight, tight-fitting lid is designed to retain moisture. This innovative lid also features tiny spikes on the interior that continually release condensed liquid back onto the food for a rainforest effect that yields moist, flavorful results. This unique design distributes moisture more effectively than a conventional lid, so food won’t dry out when braising for long periods of time.
Goes From Oven to Table
Built to last a lifetime, STAUB cocottes are heirloom pieces that can be passed from generation to generation. While durable enough to use every day in the kitchen, with their fine quality and exquisite enamel finish, the iconic STAUB cocottes also travel elegantly right to the table for serving family and guests alike.

"Cocotte" in French means "casserole," but there are a multitude of dishes that emerge delectably from Staub's signature French oven. This attractive 5-quart cocotte, available in an array of rich colors, is an ideal choice for slow-cooked stews and soups, casseroles, and roasted meats, as well as many other one-pot meals. Measuring 10-1/4 inches in diameter, the cocotte is constructed of durable cast iron with a black matte enameled interior and an enameled ceramic finish that extends to the pot and lid edges to prevent chipping and rusting. And with its decorative design, it serves as beautifully as it cooks.
Designed for oven or stovetop use, the cocotte features a smooth, heavy earthenware base that will never warp and can handle any cooking surface, including glass, induction, and convection. Like the pot itself, the handles and lid are cast iron for durability and even heat distribution and retention (handles and brass or stainless steel lid knobs do get hot, so use caution). The lid features innovative self-basting spikes to continually redistribute juices back to the ingredients as they cook. The black-matte enameled interior doesn't need seasoning and, as cooking oils seep into the pores over time, will become a self-seasoned, non-stick surface. Oven-safe to 500 degrees F, Staub's French oven doesn't need high heat and so should be used on low to medium settings. For best care, use with silicone or wooden utensils and wash by hand with non-abrasive cleaners. The cocotte comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Made in France.

-conducts heat very well
-easy to clean
-Staub offers limited lifetime warranties on a their products
-the inside of the lid has points that create a rainfall effect on the food, locking in moisture
-the entire pot, including handles and lid, get very hot very quickly so you will always need to have a pot holder on hand (true with any French oven)
-it is heavy, around 12 lbs, which is part of the reason it cooks so well but can be cumbersome to carry
I have recommended this product to several friends and family members and am considering buying more sizes for myself since it has become one of the most used items in my kitchen!
One thing to know - inside is not glazed but cast iron colored and a bit textured. Good for browning meat but sometimes harder to clean than the white inside of say, a Le Creuset. Still. Just a thing to know. I am VERY happy with my Staub and would not trade it.
