I've wanted a staub pumpkin cocotte for a while now, so when there was a coupon last month, I snatched one up. I love staub cocottes and this one is so beautiful--just the right size for halved soup recipes, or a loaf of no-knead bread (it gives you a much rounder, more boule-shaped loaf than using a 5-1/2qt dutch oven will.) Pulling this out filled with butternut squash soup at a get-together elicited many oohs and ahhs... But!! Unfortunately, the fifth time I used it, at 450ºF for 45min, I pulled it out to discover that the whole handle was horribly discolored--splotchy in spots, like cheap jewelry where the coating's started rubbing off, and with streaks in other places that look fire-blackened. The stem is downright ugly now. I will take it into the store to see if I can return or exchange (although I'm wary about trying another and experiencing the same issue) but... you should bear in mind if you're buying this that there are no replacement handles like with other staub dutch ovens. Perhaps mine was just defective, but it concerns me that I had to use it so many times to find out. Lastly, it's more difficult to clean than the perfectly round staubs. Initially that was a sacrifice I was willing to make for appearances, but now... I'm not so sure.
This piece is so cute! It was not in the store I was shopping when I bought another staub pan, so I ordered it from the website. I have seen this in the past, but this looks like a new color. I can't wait to use this in the kitchen and serve out of it - so cute! Have my eye on the teeny ones, too.
I bought the Staub Burnt Orange Pumpkin Cocotte, 3½ qt. several years ago, and it is wonderful! It is such a conversation piece also. It adds so much to the fun and flair of autumn cooking. Perfect for a butternut squash soup. Love it!
I wanted this pot last year but missed my chance so bought it immediately when I saw it in store a few weeks ago. It is gorgeous and endlessly charming. Anyone would love to have this in their kitchen, and if you're a regular cook, a Staub (or many Staubs!) is a must have. These cook evenly, are easy to clean and will last forever! The handle on this one is great- I think it's an update from last year? Great one if so. I recommend this pot to anyone!
This is my 2nd STAUB DUTCH OVEN. I swear, I don't know how or why, but everything comes out so much more delicious than ever!! I cook w it on the stovetop first, and then finish it in the oven at a low, slow, temp. I'm talking about chili, Italian gravy, sausage n peppers, soups, stews, pot roasts, etc. You will be such a better cook you won't believe it, and the price point now is amazing.
So I went In the store to purchase another Staub when I was told about this. I ordered this on-line and when it came and I opened it, I was blown away. The pictures do justice. I use it everyday almost. From veggies to soup and anything in between. Any reason and I use it. My mom loved mine so much she purchased one too. Truly a master piece.
Oh my God, this is beautiful, yes the pictures doesn't do it justice until you have the piece in front of you at you table, such an original color, i am looking forward to purchase more Staub, the only thing i wish/hopping to have a bigger size, 3 1/2 is to small. please have it available, thanks.
I have coveted this gorgeous pumping coquette for years. It's probably not the most practical piece of cookware, but hey..IT"S GORGEOUS!!! When I got a coupon with the latest fall catalog I knew it was time to go for it while it's available. The color is a rich, deep orange and better than some years past. Even though it's still August and HOT I have the feeling soup will soon be on the dinner menu anyway!
Oh, my gosh! I ordered this without seeing it and couldn't be more delighted with it. The color is deep and rich and the size was just what I needed. The curved handle is an added plus. It baked wonderfully and all of our Thanksgiving guests commented on it. I'm so happy with my purchase and look forward to adding more of this line to my kitchen cooking collection!
I have always been a huge fan of Staub. This is the first time I purchased a seasonal pot, everything I own is pretty much standard cookware. I have to say this is the nicest pot ever… I have seen many different pumpkin shaped pots and this is right on the money its design is outstanding. Definitely the perfect addition to your fall cookware/ kitchen collection. -Mimi
You can see the quality in this beautiful cocotte, it's not only gorgeous to look at, but it's nice and hefty too. The color isn't a bright or garish orange, but a deep burnt orange that looks like a pumpkin! I'm going to try Sur la Table's coq au vin recipe in it as soon as our weather cools off a bit. I can't wait to put it on the table and let everyone ooh and aah over it!
Staub is a superior product. Cook with it all the time. I have the original larger orange pumpkin and graphite other pieces. Have now started my grandchildren collecting pieces, It is encouraging them to cook. Love the special seasonal pieces....the tomato and the pumpkin.
I'm a new comer to Staub but I'm loving the Pumpkin Cocotte. It has the perfect pumpkin coloring and the finish inside is easy to cook with. Just as an aside, the pumpkin stem is perfect finish to this pot. This pot and the smaller pumpkin bowls with lids sit on a shelf of my bakers rack so they are seen on a daily basis.
I ordered this right before Halloween thinking there was NO WAY I would receive it in time for our Halloween jambalaya. Received it the day before. Yay! Was able to make two versions of my jambalaya- one in my larger Staub Dutch oven and a super spicy version in my Pumpkin! Love the size and the whimsy of the Staub pumpkin coquette it is absolutely beautiful! I will use all year long. Staub Dutch ovens are great to cook in, easy to clean...I highly recommend.
LOVE my pumpkin cocotte! It is the perfect pot for making and serving my pumpkin soup. The beautiful orange pot is so festive! I will not want to put it away after the fall. Be sure to season it like any other cast iron pan.
I love the effect of the enameled iron and how do you not go for the sweet pumpkin? I really didn't need it but got a nice discount form Sur la Tab and free shipping. They will be gone soon so if I were you I'd just buy it.
I enjoy cooking with Staub products. Everything comes out perfect. This item may seem expensive (look at some of their other products) but worth it. This cocotte will serve approximately 6. Beautiful on the table. I've used this for potatoes au gratin as well as for different soups. Have fun with it.
I returned this because the lid only fit in one particular way - too fiddly for me for regular use. Also there were multiple chips along the edges of the pan and lid - my Le Creuset never looked chipped like that.
This is my first Thanksgiving that I will be hosting and this will be the piece that makes it Thanksgiving! I imagine I will be the grandma hosting Thanksgiving and this will still be my center piece 30 years from now.
Love it for the fall! Someone bought it for me & it was just prefect!! It was on sale, so I bought it for another friend! We have been at their Thanksgiving table for the last 10 years, and I wanted her to have something that reminded her of our wonderful Thanksgivings together!
I shop at your store in Naperville and have always been satisfied with the things I purchase. The clerks are very helpful, and informative. This Pumpkin Cocotte is beautiful as well as wonderful to cook so many different things for company and family.
have always wanted something beautiful to make soups and stews in.This is gorgeous. My sister just bought one ,she had it in a pretty seasonal display in her dining room. She told me about the sale going on now so I came home and bought one. Beautiful color and quality, the picture does not do it justice. Love that you can use it on the stove and in the oven and its dishwasher safe.
Could one use a pot like this to cook soup on the stove top, or is it primarily for oven use? I've never had anything like this before--I'd love to be able to make some of my soups in one pot with this and then serve without transferring, but I don't know if the burner heat (gas stove) would damage the base. Thoughts?
Best Answer:The Staub pumpkin is great for stove top, and oven cooking and then taking directly to to table for serving! Your food remains hot through out the entire meal since it is cast iron and holds the heat extremely well. My sweet potato bake with caramelized pecans is going to look fantastic served in my new pumpkin! Buy it! You will be pleased that it is even more beautiful in living color and makes an excellent decoration when not in use!
No, this piece is great for both heat sources. One of the most common uses for cast iron cookware like this is to sear cuts of meat on the stovetop, then add other ingredients of your choice and finish your recipe low & slow in the oven. I do it all the time. Once you get the hang of it, you'll find yourself using it all the time.
I have made fantastic home made soup using my Staub cast iron cocettes. Just always make sure you start with a very low heat and bring it up slowly. They are also amazing for making pineapple upside down cake! The cast iron makes the carmel glaze around the pineapples really nicely!
Best Answer:It is shaped just like the outside including the lid. It doesnt have the typical "dimples" on the inside of the lid that the traditional shaped Staub cocottes have for self basting. It is absolutely darling. Hope this helps.
I have the pumpkin as well and just love it. It doesn't need those dimples because the inverse shape of the pumpkin head serves the same purposes as the dimples. The moisture drips back from the lid because of the inverse shape of the pumpkin on the inside if you know what I'm trying to say. Enjoy!
It's shaped like the outside. Haven't used it yet, but if it's soup or stew I can't see why this would be a problem. I would probably cook in a different pot anyway and then use this to serve. It is very pretty!
Can this product be used on all kinds of heat sources? please tell me which all sources it can be used on. with regards to the smaller Mini Pumpkin Cocotte too .. what all sources can it be used to cook on or are they just used for decorative and serving purposes?

Best Answer:The enameled cocotte is safe for the oven, broiler & stovetop. The stoneware cocottes are safe for oven, broiler, microwave & freezer.
YES--this is the "burnt orange majolique" finish that Staub carries--it is 3 layers of a glass-like translucent finish, giving it depth. THERE USED TO BE ANOTHER VERSION that Sur La Table carried 2-3 years ago; that was a bright, FLAT, opaque orange sprayed over with a gradiated darker shade of orange. The newer version does not have gradiation but appears more sophisticated; the old finish was more your bright orange Halloween pumpkin color. Personally, I love all the Staub majolique finished best.
The color is anything but traditional orange. It is a very deep, rich, dark, spicy orange...an exquisite fall color. It is beautifully glazed. The color of the cocotte matches the image on my laptop, but that may differ on different monitors, of course. It did take my breath away when I opened the box. (I'd love to have a handbag I this color!)
the "Burnt" in bunt orange is like a brown glaze over the true orange. it sofens and darkens the color a bit and makes the look richer. I leave my pumpkin cocotte on top of the stove - part of my fall look for the kitchen.
I doubt it. This is cast iron in the core and enameled. If I were to guess, I would say no, but since I have never used an induction stove top, I am not familiar with the types of pans that they require., It is a really cool pot, though, and slow-roasts meats and stews just lovely in the oven.
Best Answer:NO!!! It's made of cast iron. Please don't put any metal items in your microwave oven. The highest and best use, (IMHO), for this item is slow cooking in your oven. I put mine on display in the fall because it's so gorgeous. I highly recommend it!
Some photos show the color as a deep, darker orange, and others show it as leaning heavily toward brown. Which color is it actually?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2015
Best Answer:Hi! The pumpkin is definitely orange in color with a little brown mixed in. It's NOT Halloween orange OR brown. It's more like the burnt orange color belonging to the University of Texas! You will not be disappointed in the Coquette-it's gorgeous!
It is a deep, dark, gorgeous orange. Pictures do not do it justice! It is one of the most beautiful cookware items I have ever owned, something that I keep out on display just because it is so beautiful,
Best Answer:I don't think the pot will break easily, it is very heavy cast iron, i think if you were to drop it on a hard floor it might damage the enamel or break a handle (or break your toe). it is very much like a black iron Dutch oven, bud it has a nicer shape and color, I bought mine for the holidays, but I will use it more, it gives your table a whimsical touch.
Heck no!! It's enamel over cast iron, so you'd have to abuse it pretty badly to break it (like maybe drop it off of a building). As with any pot of this type, you shouldn't use very high heat or abrasive cleaners, but if you dropped it, you'd break your foot before you'd break the pot or even the lid.
I purchased one and have not used it yet. It feels very sturdy, but I plan to keep mine in the box when not in use as it is something that doesn't store easily with the stem of the pumpkin sticking up. I have used many other cast iron pots and expect it to hold up equally as well.
This soup pot is simply beautiful, cooks very well, and I bought it for myself as a Fall treat. Really great purchase, but I wish it came with some recipes. Any suggestions?

Best Answer:Sometimes I cook a recipe from scratch in this pan, and other times I just use it to serve and keep a dish warm. It is great for butternut or pumpkin soup, butternut squash risotto, or serving a side dish at Thanksgiving (pureed squash or even your favorite dressing). Search www.foodnetwork and other favorite sites for recipes.
We often make butternut squash soup with roasted butternut squash, chopped apples, chicken stock, full fat coconut milk, grated fresh ginger and curry powder. Use an emersion blender or Vitamix, and voila! Enjoy!
My Pumpkin Cocotte has black spots on it in several places. One place has 5 or 6 black spots close together. Is this normal? I know I am a perfectionist, but the spots do bother me.
A shopper on Jan 2, 2016
Best Answer:I bought the pumpkin cocotte for my daughter...she LIVES it and I visited her over Christmas and she was using it for stews and spaghetti sauce...there were no black spots on the cocotte anywhere...the exterior is a unblemished as the day it was purchased...it hold heat and cooks great...so far no spots. I wonder if your cicotte is defective...pursue that. For the price and quality of Staub I would think there should be NO EXTERIOR BLEMISHES develop...good luck!
My Staub pumpkin Cocotte according to the box label is called Cinnamon color not Burnt Orange like the ad. It is VERY dark orange and not what it looks like on the website. Are there two colors and why did I get such a different color from the ad? Not crazy about the color. And I waited to get one in stock. I like everything but the color. sad.
