We are very happy with this Staub pot. After years of owning Le Creuset dutch ovens, we decided to venture out into the Staub line, primarily because we prefer the overall appearance of Staub pots much more than the Le Creuset line.
This 7 quart oval dutch oven has been fantastic! We love the color and the weight is actually much heavier feeling than our Le Creuset's.
Sur la Table was great at helping us ordering this pot in store, as this particular color was not in stock. It was ordered in-store and sent to my home in less than a week!
We are very happy and plan on purchasing more Staub's in this beautiful graphite color!
I couldn't be more delighted with 7 qt Staub, which was my Mother's Day gift.
Going to the local Santa Monica Sur La Table store, I picked up and imagined using every dutch oven offered. I selected the Staub oval graphite cocotte and it turns out to be perfect for my use: it is the shape of a chicken; it holds enough to slow roast a chicken and vegetables for a 1-pot dinner for six; it is easy to clean compared to other dutch ovens I have used; it does not dry out food as wrought iron without porcelain tends to do; it does not break as my Corning and Pyrex casseroles/dutch ovens did (and which this Staub was intended to replace!).
Plus, because of its handle design, it is well-balanced and quite easy to move from oven to stovetop using pot holders, despite its weight.
I chose Staub over Le Creuset because it is heavier, and retains heat longer, allowing for slow-cooking and slow cooling to continue once removed from the oven. The Staub makes the roast most tender and juicy.
My kids were so thoughtful to allow me the choice. I've been wanting one for years, and am absolutely delighted with it.
Thanks, kids! Thanks Sur la Table! By offering so many choices I was able to find just the right one for our use.
I have been wanting a porcelain coated wrought iron baking oven ever since I was first married. Since 1982 I used (variously) Pyrex or Corning glass, ceramic, and uncoated wrought iron covered casseroles. Each had its own problems: glass breaks, wrought iron without porcelain dries out food, etc. So, for Mother's Day, my children and their fathe asked me to go to Sur La Table and replace my latest covered glass Corning cooking pot (which broke). I tried out various offerings. I loved the 7 qt Staub. It is large and heavy, holds a 1-pot meal fo six people, and is simple to clean. I couldn't be happier. Thanks for the quality, and the choices of such great products in all sizes! Nan
What are the dimmensions and weight of the 8.5 Qt Staub® Graphite Oval Cocottes?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2015
Best Answer:not sure the exact weight but it is heavy. About 9inch wide and 12 inch long.. Love the inside of the top..it has little spikes and when cooking with top on moisture drips onto cooking food. Love it but not real crazy about the weight but what makes it so good to cook foods in.
