Prized by professional chefs and home cooks alike, Staub enameled cast iron roasting dishes go from stovetop to oven to table with ease. Exceptional heat distribution across the pan facilitates searing while its heat retention qualities and shallow sides ensure thorough roasting. Durable interior is easy-clean and smooth enamel base help prevents surface scratches. Our black matte enamel interior is highly indestructible and provides better cooking results; over time your Staub pot will slowly season itself as oils used when cooking will penetrate the pores of the black matte enamel. The black matte enamel will also brown, braise and reduce better!
