"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 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.

Love it!
Best thing to have in the kitchen - I use it for almost everything.
Nothing burns and it is so easy to clean.
Thanks for a GREAT product.

Cook your best stir fry ever with Staub
Love my new Staub wok! It heats evenly unlike my last wok.
Very impressed with the quality of my first Staub product.

Beautiful and functional
Mine is Grenadine, and it's gorgeous. So far I've used it only for stir fry, but I'm looking forward to braising in it. It cleans up beautifully--interior is black, so none of the staining problems of other enamel casseroles. The fact that it's oven safe to a high temp is a huge bonus. And the teak tools that come with it are really nice. I've wanted Staub for a long time and I'm glad I bought this. A surprise and lovely extra: the glass lid fits my largest saute pan perfectly.

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. :)

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.

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.

How does this compare with the Staub steam griddle?
virginia b on Apr 30, 2017
Staub Perfect Pan, 4.5 qt.
Staub Perfect Pan, 4.5 qt.
Staub Steam Griddle, 12
Staub Steam Griddle, 12"
BEST ANSWER: I have the Perfect Pan - it's fairly deep and more wok shaped. it has a good volume capacity but the bottom of the pan is fairly small so you wouldn't be able to use like a griddle at all. Depends on your goal for this pan I would think.
How much does this pan weigh?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This pan weighs 9lbs 3oz, or 9.2lbs
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.
What is the width of the bottom of this pan? I have a 12" induction element, so I want to be sure before buying. Is it 12" on the bottom, or very narrow like a wok?
Michelle R on Jul 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's just a touch over 6 inches.
I want to know if you can get the color ""Le Mir"" anymore in the Staub collection
A shopper on Feb 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Staub La Mer has been discontinued and is no longer available.
What colors are available?

No option to select a color.
A shopper on Feb 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This pan is available in Black, Marin & Grenadine. They are each listed individually on the website
how would you compare to staub steam griddle
A shopper on Apr 30, 2017
Staub Perfect Pan, 4.5 qt.
Staub Perfect Pan, 4.5 qt.
Staub Steam Griddle, 12
Staub Steam Griddle, 12"
BEST ANSWER: These are very comparable as they're made of the same material, but the Steam Griddle is shallow with a flat surface. It's meant for pan frying while the Perfect Pan is meant more for one pot meals.
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 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.
Such a cool pan! Seem very versatile. I would like to be able to use it to braise stews, slow cook in the oven, will it work or am I better off with a more traditional Dutch Oven?
A shopper on May 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If your primary need is for braising, I would recommend getting the Staub Braiser. The Perfect Pan is a great all-around cast iron pan but is does have a smaller heating surface area. Shaped more like a Chef's Pan or a wide wok.
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...
I use this pan for almost everything and am generally impressed. However, the interior of my pan appears to be staining and/or has a slight buildup of 'baked-on' goodness. While cooking food seems to stick to these areas. I am not positive to remove this. I have tried scrubbing...but not too hard as I do not want to damage the interior coating but it seems odd considering the surface should be non-stick. Thoughts/suggestions?
Chris C on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I personally haven't had the problem you describe. I generally soak the cooking surface before cleaning and put a coating of canola oil back on after cleaning and drying the surface. The pans seem to need re-seasoning if you use soapy water, which I do, as well as sufficient oil or moisture while cooking. By not setting the heat too high, it further helps to keep food from sticking. I hope that helps, but if not, I'd contact the manufacturer.
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.
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.
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.
Can this Staub Perfect Pan be used as a paella pan even tough it has ~ 6" bottom? I like that this pan has a clear lid as the Sur La Table paella recipe requires a lid.
A shopper on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Intrigued I made paella tonight with fresh ingredients called for in the recipe, with sausage, chicken, and shell fish. I added the raw shrimp in the last 15 min. Everything turned out perfect. Baked 45 min in 375 oven with lid. Turned heat off, let rest ~10 min. Would do well on the stove stop. No burning whatsoever.
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."
Does this work well on induction cooktop?
virginia b on Apr 30, 2017
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.
