Handle issues...
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.

Pictures do not do it justice
Bought this for my mother online without ever seeing in person. Guys, the pictures do not do it justice. Absolutely gorgeous.

A conversation piece
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!

FALL is here!
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.

LOVE this seasonal, festive, lovely piece
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!

Love this pumpkin - looks even better in person! Great price for such a quality piece. Beat my expectations.

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.

It's the Great Pumpkin!
This pumpkin is as sturdy as it is beautiful. I'm displaying it on my shelf until the holidays when I will fill it with copious amounts of yumminess!
October 22, 2014
Words cannot describe!!!
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.

Staub makes excellent quality Dutch ovens that look good and can be passed down for generations.
Rosalind W on Nov 28, 2018
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?
Allison S on Aug 28, 2014
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!
What are the height and diameter of the 3 1/2 quart pumpkin?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 7 inch height x 12 inch diameter
Is the inside smooth or shaped like the outside?
Leah on Sep 25, 2014
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.
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?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The enameled cocotte is safe for the oven, broiler & stovetop.
The stoneware cocottes are safe for oven, broiler, microwave & freezer.
Is the Burnt Orange color different from the traditional orange? Thanks!
A shopper on Oct 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is a BEAUTIFUL true burnt orange...deeper, less red, less bright, more subdued, browner than true orange. NOT Halloween orange.
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.
patricia m on Nov 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Cinnamon & Burnt Orange are the same color, but you're welcome to return it if you aren't satisfied with the color.
How much does this pot weigh?
Rosemary on Nov 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This cocotte weighs about 11lbs.
When I take advantage of the SHIPFREE, what is the additional amount for the 2 day shipping?
Brenda P on Oct 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It will be $14.95.
can the pumpkin Staub be used on an induction stovetop range?
Shelley D on Oct 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In general Staubs can be used on induction stove tops. I don't think the pumpkin shape would change this. The bottom is completely flat. It really is a beautiful piece. Hope this helps.
How many hours will soup stay hot in this pot on the table?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My soup remained hot almost 3 hrs .
Do you send to Brazil?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do ship to Brazil.
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?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2015
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 and other favorite sites for recipes.
Where was this item made?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the Staub Pumpkin Cocotte, 3.5qt last year. According to the pamphlet that was enclosed, " Staub was founded by Francis Staub in 1974 in Alsace in Eastern France. All of our cast iron cookware products are made in France." This is a beautiful cocotte and I love cooking with it.
With the lid on, what is the interior height of the 3.5 quart cocotte? For baking my bread recipes, I require a covered interior of a minimum of 5 inches. Thank you for your help.
A shopper on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: thanks! it's a little tough to answer, as the lid has high and low spots. the lower wrinkles of the pumpkin on mine are just under 5", and the puffier parts are 5 1/4 to 5 1/2. so it's cutting it close, but the loaf would be beautiful!
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 hold heat and cooks 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!
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!
Can this be put in the microwave?
Ashley Staff on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No!!! It is cast iron and the lid handle(stem) is made of brass.
Do these break easily? Are they pretty fragile?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2014
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.
Can the lid be inverted for storage?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, It can be inverted. While it's not a perfect match with the shape, by inverting the lid you will still save a few inches while storing.
Is this the same color as the previous years?
A shopper on Sep 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought this in 2015. It looks the same color but I can't be sure because I can't make a side to side comparison. I love mine. It sits on my stove as a decoration more than I use it. :)
What is the exterior finish on the black one? It appears matte unlike the other two.
A shopper on Sep 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 3.5 qt. pumpkin comes in orange, white, and the matte black. I have all three and love them all. The orange is traditional and very real looking. The white is so elegant and looks beautiful on the table summer, fall, and winter. The matte black has a very subtle shine, not high polish and reflective like the orange and white. The black has a modern flair and looks spectacular any time of year. They all have the gold finish brass stem-shaped handle.
Does the brass handle get hot?
Samantha R on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, like any metal it gets hot.
