This versatile pan really earns its name. Ideal for stovetop searing, sautéing, browning, steaming and frying, the Perfect Pan is also great for oven braising, slow cooking, roasting and more. A wide, angled profile allows you to stir and toss cooking foods without spilling, while the enameled cast iron provides incredible heat transfer without hot spots.

The Perfect Pan includes a wire rack that’s useful for draining excess oil or keeping foods warm, as well as two wooden utensils—a spatula for scraping and turning and a set of extra-long chopsticks for tossing and stir frying. Long a treasured staple in home kitchens as well as professional restaurants, Staub’s enameled cast iron doesn’t require seasoning and cleans up easily in the dishwasher.

"Truly, a PERFECT pan"
The first thing I cooked in this pan was Mussels Proven�al. From stovetop to table, I could not have found a better pan for this dish. Besides being gorgeous, the heat distribution and retention is exactly what I want. The lid eliminates the guess work. Clean up is a breeze. The pan stays planted on my glass top burner no matter how vigorously I have to stir. Did I mention how gorgeous it is? This pan is art. Seriously, you should be so lucky as to have such limited cabinet space that the Staub wok has to sit on top of your stove all the time. Not to overstate its beauty, but I actually sit, with a glass of wine in hand, and stare at this pan. If you need a push, trust me, buy one

What A Great Pan
Love the even heating of the pan, and the fit of the lid, I have used it for stir fry, searing and cooking meat. I am very satisfied with my purchase
March 27, 2014
It really is the perfect pan!
I just got this pan last week. I have used it a couple of times for stir fry. It is wonderful. It heats up evenly and holds the heat. Cleans up easily too.

I love this pan. It heated up quickly, distributed heat well, cooked evenly, held enough rice to serve at a gathering of 15, kept the food warm, and was a beautiful serving dish!!!

I purchased this pan sometime soon after it first came out. It is one of the first enameled cast iron pieces I had ever purchased and there was a learning curve as much for the curved sides on a cast iron pan as for the cast iron. It took a while to get used to it but once I did there are few things I haven't tried. I use it mainly for braising, stir frying vegetables/shrimp and the occasional chicken strips. Most of the time it stays on my stove because it does get frequent use. Grenadine is a nice color.
January 23, 2017
Love this Pan!
This is one of the best pans for cooking from cooktop to oven. It's the right size and immediately one of my "go to's" when I'm serious about my meal. :)

I have been eyeing for this item for awhile. I chose it because it's cast iron and I do a lot of chinese cooking... this perfect pan will be my "wok"
July M on Feb 6, 2017
I was looking for a deep frying pan. This one works perfectly.
Enameled cast iron makes easy for cleaning.
Wire rack was really useful for draining extra oil from fried food before I transfer them on the paper towel.
I have several stab pans but this one is my favorite one.
MEGUMI O on Jan 16, 2017
we have this pan. My daughter had her eye on a Le Creuset wok on Amazon for $50 more and unstated country of manufacture. This wok, on sale, is cheaper, made in France, a proven high quality item in our usage, and choice of colors. Also qualifies for a free designer knob and free shipping.
J O on Dec 29, 2016

LESLIE O on Sep 29, 2016
Love Staub pans! They hold the heat evenly and cook beautifully. I love the versatility of this pan in making "one pot" dishes as well as using it as a "wok." The glass lid is a plus! I hope one day my nieces will love cooking in these pans as much as I do--they certainly will last for generations with basic care and maintenance!
Anita-Marie S on Sep 28, 2016
I have been looking for a cast iron wok for a while. This pan will hopefully do the trick with cooking stir fry and more!
AMI L on Aug 28, 2016
I like the fact the pan is cast iron and does Not have a coating such as teflon, yet appears fairly easy to clean. Also, the pan appears heavy duty and comes with a lid.
Linda C on Aug 28, 2016
Love it, love it, love it!
Marina V on Aug 27, 2016
This will be a great partner for my Staub cocotte. The cocotte has been my workhorse, because of its superior design, even-heating surface, browning capabilities, and easy cleanup. Sometimes I need two pots/pans at once, though---the Perfect Pan seems like the perfect complement.
Joseph K on Aug 12, 2016
Like the look and seems practical to cook a variety of dishes.
Sharon S on Jul 31, 2016
Like the versatility of this pan! Beautiful too!
Gretchen H on Jul 30, 2016
I use this pan for most every thing. Cleans so easily. Absolutely non-stick. Cleans up with hot water and a bit of detergent. I just LOVE it.
Jette M on Jul 25, 2016
I've been cooking alot with cooktop to oven and this is perfect for that purpose!
Tracey D on Jul 24, 2016
When making Tempura it is important to maintain the oil temperature and I know STAUB item is excellent in that purpose. I also cook a lot of Japanese and Chinese stir frying dishes.

glass lid

What is the maximum oven temperature for glass lid?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The glass lid is oven safe up to 500 degrees.
I want to know if you can get the color ""Le Mir"" anymore in the Staub collection

I have the Staub Perfect Pan. I wonder if I need a separate wok. What would be the main difference between the Staub Perfect Pan and the Scanpan ProIQ wok?
Tracy H on Dec 16, 2015
Staub Perfect Pan, 4.5 qt.
Staub Perfect Pan, 4.5 qt.
Scanpan Pro IQ Wok
Scanpan Pro IQ Wok
BEST ANSWER: Hi Tracy. I have the Staub Perfect Pan also, and have an old Wok. I have not seen the Scanpan wok so I don't know about the differences there, but my old wok is a very thin material compared to the Staub pan. My old wok does not really have a flat bottom either. I have not tried stir frying in the Staub pan but I think it would work fine. You should try it a few times and then decide if you want a separate wok. I don't think you will need one. Good luck! Lynda
Is this a non-stick pan?
barbara p on Feb 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a seasoned cast iron pan - most items will not stick when used with appropriate heat and a small amount of oil. It does not have a chemical/metal non-stick coating such as Teflon. I've found it easy to keep clean with a metal mesh stainless steel cast iron cleaner and water (no soap), rinsing/cleaning while the pan is still warm, but not hot. I immediately dry it with paper towels. I will say it has exceeded my expectations and has a better seasoning that most Lodge cast iron skillets I have.
Does the Scapan Glass Lid 12.25" fit on the Staub Grenadine Perfect Pan, 4.5 qt?
James B on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My staub pan came with a lid...
Is the handle of this pan getting hot during cooking?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The beauty of cast iron cookware is that it provides an even heat to the food, the downside is that the whole pan will get hot and take a little longer to cool down. The heat issue is not a deal-breaker, and we prefer to use our cast iron cookware whenever possible.
Can you use this in hight heat on stove top? Chinese stir-fry requires really hot oil and non-stick pan cannot handle that. I am not sure if this can or cannot.
Jean H on Mar 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's enameled cast iron, meant for spreading and holding high heat. This doesn't have the silicon-type nonstick coating that you are talking about. It's nonstick more in the way that well-seasoned cast iron is nonstick. It's great because it really works on any type of stove top: gas, electric, glass flat-top, magnetic.
Can a person use metal cooking utensils in this pan?
Rhonda on Oct 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I try to use the wooden tools whenever possible, but I have used metal ones as well. I have never noticed any damage to the surface of any of my three Staub pans.
Does this pan come in different sizes?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is the only size that the Perfect Pan is currently available in.
Is this pan dishwasher safe?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is dishwasher safe and I have placed all my Staub pans in the dishwasher with good result
The limited warranty on the staub perfect pan???
A shopper on May 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Here is the guarantee as listed on the Staub website:""We support our enamelled cast-iron products with a limited lifetime warranty from the date of purchase for any manufacturing or material defects, provided the enamelled cast-iron product is used in accordance with the maintenance instructions provided with the product. The limited lifetime warranty does not cover normal wear associated with using or handling the product nor the consequences of incorrect use or accidents."
I'm looking for a pan that I can use in the oven not sure this is what I want. i'm a little confused a response says glass lid is safe up to 500 degrees. However below response it says reply is inaccurate. Can this kid be used safely in the oven? Up to 500 degrees. Thanks
A shopper on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Staub's website says this lid is oven safe to 500 degrees. I've not used it in the oven yet but would go with what the manufacturer says. Just as an aside, I've found that the best thing to clean the interior of these pans is Barkeeper's Friend. Sometimes starchy foods leave a stain that is easy to remove this way and it is what Staub recommends to use.
Does anyone know if Straub's round grill pans come in a size that can also work with this lid? TY!
Deb H on Jan 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Perfect Pan lid is the same size as the larger Staub steam grill pan. They are interchangeable.
Staub Steam Grill, 12
Staub Steam Grill, 12"
Can the lid be purchased separately? I have had a Staub pan like this one for several years and love it, but didn't have a lid.
Lucy on Sep 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not showing anywhere online that the lid can be purchased separately, but you may want to contact Staub. It's possible that they sell replacement parts.
