For centuries, cooks have taken advantage of the natural heat retention and redistribution properties of cast iron.
Enameled cast iron also retains the cold; to chill, you only have to put your preparations in the refrigerator before serving them.
Savory flavors are revealed thanks to simmering meals enhanced by continuous self-basting. The choice of renowned chefs and used in restaurants throughout the world, the Staub cocotte has a cover with spikes which enable drops of condensation to fall uniformly onto the food simmering below. This self-basting cycle ensures the flavors of the ingredients are retained in their full intensity and their nutritional worth is preserved perfectly!
