Beautiful as well as functional
I am very pleased with my purchase of the Staub 4qt Round Cocotte. The cherry color is so pretty and cheery. I have used the cocotte several times already and am amazed that spaghetti sauce can simmer a long while without sticking to the bottom. It really does heat evenly with no hot spots. This cocotte has rapidly become my favorite piece of cookware.

My Third Staub Cocotte
My others are seven and two quarts. The big one is my workhorse for stews and soups, and the others are perfect when I need the even heating of cast iron combined with the easy cleaning of the Staub finish...which is, pretty much, always. Great brand, and the sale price was excellent.

I like the size of it and the dark interior. I am very disappointed that it is already chipping on the edge. I expected more from this quality product.

Wonderful
Everything cooks great in it. Things do stick to it if you don't watch the pot or the heat setting. But it deglazes nicely and is easy to clean.

My little cocotte
My little cocotte isn't so little, but it's the perfect size for the two of us! I bought it in cherry red and love it. I think this will become an heirloom!

Absolutely the BEST!
Just love this cocotte and made a classic beef stew that took seven hours to complete. The grass fed stew meat browned beautifully and was as tender as could be. I highly recommend this pot without reservation.

The four quart held enough to make ten servings.

Danielle M on Dec 14, 2018
Staub is my go-to cookware. Now that I have the 4 qt and the 5 qt, I rarely use any other pot in my home for any purpose. It's made in France, not China like Le Cruset can be, and it will last for years. I bought this for a friend for her first Staub pot. I know she will buy more...

Does the enamel chip off easily, especially around the edge of the pot?
karen c on Nov 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have several Staub coccottes, some for several years and they are all in like-new condition
How many pounds does it weigh?
Marisa N on Nov 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It’s heavy, but that is part of its charm. It heats up quickly and retains heat for a long time. The lid is heavy as well and makes a perfect seal.
Can this be used on stove top?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes!! The Staub cocottes are wonderful on the stove top. I have an induction top and am totally spoiled by Staub quality.
What are the dimensions
?
A shopper on Jan 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 11.9" x 9.4" x 6"
What color is the metal knob on the black one: goldtone or silvertone?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The knob on the cherry cocotte is silver, on the black cocotte is brass. They are metal knobs so great for the oven,
How is this for baking bread? What size pot would be good for bread?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We use a 3.5 qt. Lodge pot to bake bread, and it is perfect!
Is there a warranty?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Staub offers a lifetime warranty.
Will this pot hold a 6 lb. beef brisket to cook?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don’t believe it would just because of the way brisket is cut. The Sur la Table oval Dutch oven works well with large pieces of beef & chicken.
do you need to season the cocotte again over time? what is the best oil to use for this?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is no need to season these types of enameled cast iron (ECI). They are basically glass coated metal, not raw cast iron, so seasoning is not needed to prevent rust. You do however need oil it to avoid having food stick, and since the finish on the inside is matte there are small pores where oil with stick. You can season these, but you don't need to.
Will this work well on an induction stove?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These perform very well on induction. Simmering soups, making rice is a breeze with enameled cast iron and induction.
Is the inside of the lid smmoth or does it have the staub-famous bumps on it designed to make the meats juicer?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does have the stab famous bumps. I love the round cocotte. Great size and great price.
Can I cook spaghetti sauce in it, then let it simmer for hours? Thank you
A shopper on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Depending on your flame, you may have to stir every so often to make sure there is no scorching, but that would be the case with any pan, from cast iron, to all clad, to le creuset. Alternatively you can simmer in a low oven, which eliminates the stirring issue.
Care tips please? I own this for more than 2 year and used only three time. Every time it stucks like GLUE and finally becomes impossible to clean. I also tried to season it a couple of time but still not working. Maybe I received a bad product?
Luyi C on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I haven't had this problem. I usually cook with butter or olive oil when I use this pan and heat it on medium heat gas before increasing the temperature. The first few times that I used it there was a bit of a white residue that appeared after I hand washed and air dried the pan. This resolved when I added a bit of vegetable oil and rubbed it in with a paper towel. This doesn't seem to happen anymore though and I have never really had an issue with sticking. I love these pans and use them frequently from stovetop to oven.
does it heat evenly?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Staub 4qt Round Cocotte is my go to pot for chili, soups, spaghetti sauce. It heats evenly with no "hot spots." I also use a simmer mat underneath. I do season it after each use as a white area appears in the bottom of the pot after washing, which disappears after wiping the inside with oil.
Can this be used on a glass cooktop?
A shopper on Dec 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I do not know. I have a gas stove. Ask Staub. I love my Dutch oven and gave one to each of my daughters.
What is the difference between this and a Dutch oven?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use it as a dutch oven. I think of a dutch oven as any heavy cast iron pot that has an equally heavy lid that traps in the moisture. Many people think of the heavy raw cast iron pots when they think of dutch ovens. This is a heavy cast iron pot but with the awesome bonus of the enamel coating. The enamel coating is non-reactive which means it won't leach and discolor your foods. The stress of cleaning cast iron is eliminated because you can use soap. You don't need to ensure everyone in the house treats it right..it won't rust. I could go on and on about the Staub pots but in short the cast iron/enamel product is wonderful.
Cleaning care tips please?
Linda K on Nov 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Wash with dish detergent, dry thoroughly, add a light coating of vegetable oil to interior.
I am looking at Staub and Le Creuset Dutch ovens. I have never owned any French cookware. I have a wonderful set of stainless steel kettles as well as two great heavy duty cast iron fry pans that are very old. I would love to get a Dutch oven. My question is. Which brand?
What size? I’m cooking for two sometimes three. Would like to use for artisan bread baking and stews also soup. I have been eyeing this staub on sale for $99 (4 qt). Also looking at Le Creuset deep sided 5 1/2 qt 199$ I have not seen them in person so it’s hard to gauge the quality of each brand. Please advise !
A shopper on Nov 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello! In response to which brand is best...I have both and I love both! I have cooked with Le Creuset for years and have a larger pot as well as a smaller one. However, I too wanted one for cooking soups and stews for 2-3 people and saw the Staub on sale. I grabbed it because I’ve heard that this brand is good and the price was awesome! It is absolutely perfect for my purposes...cooks wonderfully, is easy to clean and is the most beautiful cherry red color! I actually leave it sitting out on my stove because it is so pretty! The only difference as I see it is that the Staub is a prettier red...the Le Creuset is more of a traditional red. But you can’t go wrong with either brand! I hope this helps!
Can it be used on a gas burner?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sure, it works very well on gas stove. However, I suggest to use the lightweight pot instead of cast iron on the portable gas stove.
What materials are used to make this pan?
Patti on Dec 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Enameled cast iron
Is this a first quality pot? Not a 2nd with blemishes?
Margaret R on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: First quality pot! Gave one to my daughter for Christmas a year ago. She raves about it all the time. She uses it for everything. Even steaks!
How textured is the inside of the pot?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The inside of the pot is smooth black enamel. Nothing sticks to it, it doesn’t stain like Le Creuset and it washes very easily. Best 4 qt Dutch oven and this price is only available once a year.
Can this be used for deep frying?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but remember cast iron heats hotter than other cookware, you do not need to have heat turned on high
How do I know the capacity by looking at the number on the base? I have a cocotte that has “28” stamped on the base.
Gerry on Dec 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think it’s a Staub company code. If you purchase it’s pot you will absolutely love it. The lid has the numbs on it which creates even dripping from condensation from what you are cooking. This will keep even moisture on pot roast, chicken ect. Great investment
will i get the sale price?
Tony M on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately no, as it's no longer available.
