The Staub 12 1/2 Inch Fry Pan w/ 2 Handles is a nice pan for high performance cooking. The 2 smaller handles instead of the typical large handle makes for easier kitchen storage and lifting. Included with the pan are 2 removable silicone handle covers to use in place of oven mitts when taking the pan to the table for serving. The sturdy Staub cast iron pan is great for many cooking tasks including searing steaks and other meats. The enameled interior surface insures good food release without the drawbacks of nonstick. Staub products are enameled on the inside and out, including the black matte finish. No seasoning is required for enameled cast iron and it will not react to acidic foods.
