For centuries, cooks have taken advantage of the natural heat retention and redistribution properties of cast iron. The engineers at Staub have enhanced this feature with the development of special glazes that add beauty and functional benefits.
The Staub journey begins in the Alsace region of France. Rich in history, food and craft, the area is renowned for hearty one-pot recipes and fine enamelled ceramics.Today the success of these designs has become the benchmark for enamelled cast iron cookware and is the reference brand for some of the world’s great chefs including Paul Bocuse. The winning result is French enamelled cast iron cookware that marries the expression of the artisan with the culinary imagination of gourmet chefs to produce the ultimate in comfort food. With as much attention as the Alsatians applied to perfecting the one-pot meal, Staub’s founder set himself to perfecting the pot itself.
The grandson of a cookware merchant, Francis Staub designed his first enamelled pot in an old artillery factory in 1974, merging the utility of cast iron with the latest technology available. Featuring a special black matte enamel interior for non-stick braising and self-basting spikes, Staub cookware excels in providing the perfect environment for slow-cooked, flavor-enhanced meals. Staub cookware easily moves from the kitchen to the table at home and in the finest restaurants worldwide - a testimony to its quality and enduring beauty.
