Indoor grilling is great, but the results are often undesirable—it tends to fill the kitchen with smoke and meat can become tough and dry. Enter the Staub Steam Grill. Our go-to pan for quick, healthy meals, the versatile Steam Grill comes with a tight-fitting lid that locks in flavor and moisture and prevents excessive smoking. Simply sear food, add wine, broth or your favorite cooking liquid, then cover and steam for moist, delicious results every time.

Great for fish, veggies, pan-grilled steaks and more, this innovative grill makes it easy to achieve perfect grill marks, then add liquid, cover and finish foods with the gentle, even heat of steam. Steam grilling reduces cooking time by up to 30%, so food stays moist and tender. And because you’re using liquid that deglazes the pan while you cook, steam grilling also makes clean up a breeze.

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.

My New Favorite Kitchen Tool
I received this pan two weeks ago and have used it at least five times. It is a wonderful size for a small family or for couple cooking if you are cooking two different foods at one time. So far I've cooked thick boneless chops with asparagus, steak with fresh broccoli, salmon with pre-baked sweet potato (split the potato in half, sprinkled w/raw sugar and placed down on grill), and chicken with cauliflower. I think the pork chop was my favorite - awesome flavor and very tender. As far as cleaning, as recommended by a previous reviewer, I use Bar Keepers Friend cream cleaner with a small scrub brush. No problem cleaning. My tip for cleaning though is: as soon as you remove the food from the hot pan, add water and let soak until you are ready to clean. The food particles come right off.

Best gill pan for indoor grilling!
I cook a lot! Ive used indoor grill pans of all kinds and this one really does what is says..You get perfect grill marks and tender and moist meat! You will get smoke if your grilling correctly, so make sure you have good venting. Make sure pan is good and hot and don't overcook and you will LOVE this pan. I probably use it 4-6 days a week. I've even had a indoor grill in my cook top before and this pan does my grilled shrimp with the same results and a lot less clean-up than an entire grill. Use the lid too it keeps the moisture in the meat, even if you don't use a liquid with your recipe :-)

perfectly moist chicken
Just used the Staub Steam Grill for the first time. Love it! Perfectly moist chicken in about 15 minutes, and it was so easy! I used the chicken recipe from the website, and it was excellent.

Fantastic Pan!
I bought one of these this weekend and used it to grill a sirloin steak last night - it was fabulous! This pan gave me a nice sear with no oil. Clean up was super easy - once cool, I just put it in the sink, filled with water and a squirt of dish liquid. After a brief soak, everything just wiped up with a sponge!

This pan is enameled inside as well as outside - this is NOT like traditional cast iron. You can use soap, don't need to season it, etc. All of the "rules" for cast iron do not apply.

problem solver!
this grill pan is awesome! I love that I can use it as a normal grill pan (even on the BBQ outside) or use it with liquid and the lid to steam grill. Steam grilling is faster and the results are great, plus using the lid means my kitchen won't smell like smoke after grilling inside. Also, no more grease splatters all over the range top. you need this item!

A Disappointment
This product does not perform the way the video implies. Despite following directions, I was unable to get grill marks on the food without splatters all over my stovetop, and several kinds of fish stuck to the grill even though I used olive oil first. And clean-up is hardly "a breeze"--unless you consider ten minutes of scrubbing a breeze. I don't.

Love the function, but hard to clean.
I love the size and the steaming capability with clear lid. I just find it very hard to clean after grilling meats.

Love This Pan!!!!
This is the first Staub pan I've ever owned. All I can say is Wow!!!!
It sears any meat beautifully, that you'd think the meat was done on an outside grill. I've seared in the pan and then finished cooking the meat in the oven. Wonderful!!!!!
After reading the reviews on cleaning, what I've done is let the pan cool a bit, but not completely. Then fill the pan with hot sudsy water and let it sit. Most everything comes right off with little effort of scrubbing. And yes, the glass lid fits perfectly and snugly.

Read the online description
This pan performs exactly as advertised. A rarity these days. We have used our pan to grill fish, meat, veggies, all without any disappointment. Really did a fine job of grilling then steaming fresh asparagus. Buy it and use it for everything.
December 10, 2015
This is just the type of pan I was looking for! It is large enough to hold a complete meal! Great purchase price. Very pleased!

Great as a grill pan and easy to clean, but by having a lid makes it even more useful since it allows steaming.

Barbara G on Aug 23, 2016
I cook lots, and this item looked like such a great deal and price.
Francene K on Aug 23, 2016
Staub products are very good and last a long time. I ordered the grill because it has some depth with deeper ridges and it has a cover which provides steam to further cook food but leave it tender and juicy.
Lydia A on Aug 23, 2016
I received notice of the sale in the Email blast. The 10" grill seemed small and 12" grill was a better deal. I have been watching them for a while and this was a great price.

I like this because I like the ease of cooking everything together and steaming is a heathy way to eat also.
Robyn C on Aug 23, 2016
I need a pan that will produce minimal smoke. After reading the reviews, I decided that this pan is the one to try.
Joan H on Aug 20, 2016
I recently had the opportunity to take a cooking class on indoor grilling, and this was the pan that was used. Looks to be a beauty for occasions when you don't have access to a real grill. The food we prepared on it turned out really good - just didn't have the added flavor from my Big Green Egg, but will work!
SUZAN E S on Aug 16, 2016
I like the convenience of being able to grill in the winter time, on top of the stove. It's a healthful way to prepare meats.
Karen W on Aug 15, 2016
Recommendation from mother-in-law
Allison G on Aug 12, 2016
Healthy quick cooking when it's not nice enough to grill outside. Also, our Salesperson at Sur La Table told us how much he liked it when we were in buying something else. I normally hate Salespeople, but have always been impressed with the knowledge, courtesy and enthusiasm of your staff. You carry the highest quality products and I'm happy to say we have always received the highest quality service as well. Cheers!

YI-CHING H on Oct 22, 2016
Love this for vegetables.
CYNTHIA W on Oct 20, 2016
We just purchased this but it was the floor model and had no information in regards to how to use it or how to clean it. We just made salmon in it and while it was tasty, we had difficulty cleaning the pan. My husband brushed the fish with a miso butter but didn't add any liquid to the pan, hence the fish was "smoked" rather than steamed. It tasted wonderful but the clean up was not effortless. Any advice?
Maura S on Dec 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Once the pan is cool, try filling it with hot water and a couple of pumps of dish liquid. Since it is enameled cast iron, you can use soap, but I would avoid abrasive sponges.
why I cannot do this with other cast iron grill pans with tight lid and need staub grilling pan?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In theory, you can do it with any grill pan that has a lid. What makes the Staub pan ideal is that it's made specifically for this purpose. It has a tight fitting lid & high grill ridges to promote steaming, but still give you grill marks.
How does the pure grill differ from the stub steam grill? Besides the pan size and the steam grill has a lid
A shopper on May 1, 2015
Staub Steam Grill, 12
Staub Steam Grill, 12"
Staub Pure Grill, 10.5
Staub Pure Grill, 10.5"
BEST ANSWER: Steam grill is 12" with lid, pure grill is 10" no lid, and appropriately less cost. Thats it. No other difference.
what is the weight of this pan?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This grill weighs about 12lbs.
Can I cook on electric stove?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have electric (induction) cooktop and electric stove. works perfectly. I think you can heat in oven to 450 degrees, but i would need to recheck.
Does this Staub steam grill also work well just as a grill pan without adding liquid or would the ridges be too high placing the food too far up from the heat source? I use a gas stove. I like the idea of equipment being able to do double duty.
Sandra B on Jan 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be used as a standard grill pan as well.
How is this better than a grill pan? And will this actually taste like outdoor grilled food or just a grill pan?
Lindsay A on Jan 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's not necessarily better than a grill pan, as it itself is a grill pan. Features that make this particular grill pan unique are the tight fitting lid that comes with it, as well as the raised grill ridges. They make it so that a liquid of your choice can be poured in the bottom to create steam that will keep your food moist & impart flavor into it.
The grill ridges will help add a nice char flavor to your food, but it won't get that good, smoky flavor like you would in a grill.
Can wood chips be used to flavor meats in this grill?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. It is not a very deep pan and not much different than any other grill pan. While I have many Staub pans (which I truly enjoy using) I don't find this to be much different from any other good grill pan. I am intrigued by your question, however, as I have been researching smoking. I might be tempted to try your idea on a lower end pan to see if it works. I have some old lodge grill pans and I might give it a try. No harm no foul with with an old, inexpensive pan.
I'm torn between getting the 10.5" and the 12" pan. Don't want both, so would you recommend getting the larger pan with the lid because of the option of the lid and it's basically 2 pans in one with the steaming effect? Does anybody have both and which one do they use the most?
Roxann S on Jun 21, 2015
Staub Steam Grill, 12
Staub Steam Grill, 12"
Staub Pure Grill, 10.5
Staub Pure Grill, 10.5"
BEST ANSWER: In all honesty, I would get the 12" steam grill! Both pans are the same, can both go into the oven up to 500 degrees and both can go onto the cooktop. The 12" is bigger than the 10" and you cannot make a pan grow. And the lid give you options. If money is not the option, I would go with the 12" pan. Love that you can put the gill pan in the oven and get it searing hot and then sear cook a steak and get the outside cooked and leave the center warm and not soooo cooked if you dont want. Enjoy!!
How much smoke is created?
We need something that will not smoke. Our apartment fan recirculates so meat and fish are a problem creating too much smoke. Any info on how much smoke this produces?
martha l on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is a steam grill so as long as there is liquid in bottom of pan I have not had any smoke issues. When I use it as a grill then keep a splatter guard or cover on to minimize grease getting on range top
I have a 2 Staub grill pans already. Could'nt I just put a piece of heavy duty foil over the top and get the same steam effects? Hubby says I have too many wonderful pans already and no space left to store everything, I can't disagree!
Sharon H on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: with foil wouldn't you have a hard time monitoring the cooking? the lid holds in moisture and heat so food cooks much more quickly - foil wouldn't create a true seal. also, the lid is glass so you can see your food as it cooks, and you can make sure not to over-do it. you can't do that with foil.
Does this work on an induction cooktop?
Cathleen on Jan 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these are suitable for an induction cooktop. Just be careful about moving this heavy pan around on this or a ceramic cooktop to avoid scratching the cooktop surface.
Can it be used on an outdoor gas or charcoal bbq grill?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. My perspective is that this is a specialty pan, for indoor grilling on a stovetop to cook healthy, moist, meals while minimizing smoke creation in the home. (It says it is ovenproof to 500°.) I do not know why anyone would risk using this beautiful cookware on an outdoor grill. So many of the questions in this section can be answered by reading the product description right here on this website. There's even a video!
Can I put this in the dishwasher?
A shopper on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes! It is inevitable that when you are grilling on the stovetop (and it does a beautiful job of it, too!) that there is going to be some crusty, burned-on residue from the sauces and meat juices in the bottom of the pan. Once you finish your cooking and remove your food from the pan, if you will put hot water in the bottom of the pan, turn on the burner and bring it to a boil, and then let it sit for a few minutes, the vast majority of the messy residue will simply wash off (no damaging scrubbing required)! There will be a bit left, inevitably, and putting the pan and the lid in the dishwasher will remove all of the remaining cooking residue to brand-new-looking! BTW ... I love this pan!!!
Can I use metal utensils with this pan, or do I need plastic/silicone?
Shawn M on Feb 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can use metal. This grill is a rock. I love it!
Can it be used with broiler oven settiing? Will it take the high heat?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: you absolutely can! staub cast iron is incredibly durable and can take extremely high heat
is this price related to your sale ending in 10 hours ?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have purchased a Staub Steam Grill, and yes it is on sale. I am not sure how long you have until the sale is over. This is a great product.
My recent catalog from Sur la table "The Art & Soul of Cooking", says on page 51 to go to for the steam-grilled stuffed port loin recipe. I am unable to find it. The picture of pork loin, brussel sprouts and squash looks wonderful. Could I have the recipe?
Thank You
A shopper on Oct 26, 2015
When will the cookware sale end?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It will remain on sale at least until the end of our current catalog, which is late October.
will it produce smoke?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I haven't set off my smoke detectors! I find it depends on what I'm cooking. My favorites so far are vegetables and unless I leave them too long, they do not tend to produce smoke. Meats, especially with higher fat content do smoke some, but I have a good extractor fan that keeps it manageable. I am also finding that if I keep the lid on throughout the process things stay moist, and cook faster, but still get a nice char. It takes some experimenting, but so far I'm having fun and really liking the results.
Can you use this on a cooktop stove?
Cindy G on Jan 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a gas cook top and this grill works wonderfully. I grill various kinds of veggies and meats. It can get really hot if you desire that. It makes beautiful grill marks and adds that nice grilled taste to your foods. I love the results!
Does it require a certain pot?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. I bought this grill pan because of it's lid (few come with a lid). I used it last night for breaded chicken breasts (which I pounded to an even thickness). Applied a bit of oil to the cooking surface, heated the grill to med. hot; coated chicken, and put the chicken in. I seared both sides (nice, golden brown grill marks), then added about 2 tbsp water and put the lid on. Chicken continued to cook and when we ate it, it was cooked completely and still moist. Great pan! (To clean - since some of bread crumbs stuck, I added hot water to the cooled pan, heated it to boiling, turned the stove off, and - this morning - simply rinsed, applied more hot soapy water and wiped it clean.)
can this pan be used on a glass top stove??
A shopper on Jan 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, yes the pan can be used on a glass top stove, I have one and the pan does great. The heat is evenly distributed over the bottom of the pan.
