The Staub cookware is enameled cast iron cookware made in France. Their most popular product is the French Cocotte (or some would say French or Dutch oven). Their cocotte is a little bit more heavier than other Dutch ovens since is made using cast iron of the highest quality.
Cast iron is generally known for its heat retention properties and durability. If you have never used a enameled cast iron cooking vessel then you should try cooking in one. This a very versatile piece of cookware you can use for making many dishes like stews, soups, roasts, sauces, and every other recipe that requires slow cooking. The Staub cookware is great because of the special self basting lid. So you don't have to worry your meat will end up all dried up.
