This cocotte is my fourth, two round and two oval. I also have the mini-cocottes and a couple of gratins. The dimples on the underside of the lid create a very moist environment without having to use aluminum foil as you need to do with Le Creuset. The black interior finish also seasons over time but there is no staining issues as there can be with well-used Le Creuset. Great product whatever the color!
This is the best Dutch oven I have ever owned. The 7 quart size is very versatile because you can cook a whole chicken, make a large batch of soup or stew and also use it for smaller meals. I love the cherry color. This is a very well made product and heats up evenly every time. No complaints here. I am thinking about purchasing the 4 quart size as well. Just a note about the fantastic customer service I received from Sir La Table. My original order was lost by FedEx and the customer service representative and Sir La Table overnighted a replacement to me so that I would receive it in time to cook Christmas Eve dinner. Sir La Table came through for me and I will most certainly purchase again without hesitation. Thank you Sir La Table.
We bought this online on November 30, 2014 in the 4 qt size. It looks great and felt great for a month or two. 4 months later the interior of the cocotte is chipped and looks a lot worse than my husband's (who is a professional chef) cast iron pans and pots that have been heavily used for over 10 years. What makes it even worse is that we are using it almost exclusively to prepare steamed vegetables for our now 10 month old daughter. Not much cooking there. I am really disappointed. Given the price I was expecting a much much better quality product.
I use my Dutch oven so much that it has a permanent spot on the stove so it's handy. But the one I currently have is cheap and very badly chipped. Staub has a reputation and I love the size and features. The cherry red color will make a splash in my kitchen. I cook a lot and want quality cookware to stand the test of time. I also like that the knob can withstand temps to 500 degrees unlike Le Creuset for virtually the same price. That's a pretty important feature. Look forward to using this!
The Staub brand of cookware is amazing! I love the black interior and the little spikes in the lid! Everything tastes better with Staub! Plus, the Cherry color is perfect in my kitchen! I have the Oval Cocotte and love it! You can never have enough Staub!
Now that I have remodeled my kitchen to the point where it is actually both functional (wasn't before) and beautiful, I am cooking again! I have always wanted one of these; I love the color; and I loved the special price!
How come the 4 quart Staub is priced lower then the 2.75 quart?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2014
Best Answer:The only explanation I can think of is that there might be some differences as far as the quality is concerned. I bought mine 4 months ago and the inside is already chipped and looks terrible. There is no way all the Staub products are like that and still have so many flattering reviews so it must be an exception.
I think 2.75 qt is more useful than 4 qt. If the 2.75qt price is cheaper than 4qt, maybe I will buy more than 1 order. Because my kitchen need 1~3 2.75 qt. But it doesn't have any discount, so I just bought 1.
Can anyone tell me how the Staub Cherry color compares to the Le Creuset Cherry/red color? I've seen the Le Creuset Cherry in person and it appears in my eyes to be a bright fire engine sort of red with a very slight orange undertone (it's a perfect red in my eyes) I wasn't sure if the Staub was more muted, or had a different undertone. Thanks for any input!!
Best Answer:Everyone sees colors a little differently but I have one of each and here is how I'd compare the colors:The two pieces blend very well together- no worries there. The handles on the Le Creuset are brighter, more orange-y while the Staub handles are the darker red you'd find towards the lower part of the LC pot.The Staub exterior overall stays more towards the cherry color and is more muted; the variations are more subtle, The LC really shows color variations, even on a casual glance. To me, it's more about the variation in colors on the body of the LC vs. the subtlety of the Staub. They are both very welcome in my kitchen..
Hello Jessica,The Staub red is a very beautiful red color and has a lovely darker coloring on the edges giving it a rich tone of coloring that I truely think is stunning.I love the way it cooks and the juicy dishes are delicious.You will not be disappointed .
Hi, I find the Staub cherry to be a truer red. (Maybe a blue/red.) No orange undertones. The Staub is a bit gradient and more of a "happier" red. Aside from the color, we love this pot. Clean up is quick and easy. We use it often.
