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 had looked at this gem before as I love Staub. Necessity, no. Terrific addition for autumn, absolutely. Two things pushed me over this time. The new Burnt Orange color, the depth of the color/glazing is perfection and take it up a notch. Also, the great sale price with the extra 15% off during Labor Day. If you have ever been like me and lusted, right now is the time to give in. I am also purchasing the coordinating mini cocottes. My family and friends will enjoy these pieces for many years to come.
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!
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.
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.
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 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
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.
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 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.
Beautiful, but very heavy, and that's with nothing in it! I have it on my counter, and will use it when I feel like lifting weights. My granddaughter has her eye on it, so I know it won't be wasted. Just a object d' Artemis now
This is beautiful! In the fall, i keep it on my cooktop as my go-to pot (for oatmeal, soup, etc.)because it is so seasonally decorative. On Thanksgiving, it is perfect for cooking and serving any number of side dishes (stuffing, vegetables, mashed potatoes, etc.). The enamel finish is like the paint job of a very, very fine automobile.
This is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship indeed. Lovely color and very easy to use and clean. Looked great on the thanksgiving table as well! Great Buy and quality item. Staub is wonderful and so is Sur La Table!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
