The cast-iron casserole is the Swiss army knife of cookware. It can be used for all kinds of home cooking – from baking bread to roasting a loin – and it looks great sitting on your stovetop when you don’t have a lot of kitchen storage space.
If you’ve had your eye on the Staub 5.5 liter enamelled pan but are unsure of the price, you’ll be pleased to know that Nordstrom is currently offering a selection of colors at up to 25% off. Grab a white, gray, royal blue, or burgundy model, each with a heavy, tight-fitting lid that locks in heat and moisture. The easy-to-grip handles make it effortless to cook, boil, grill and bake, evenly distributing heat and preparing every meal to perfection.
The best? The Dutch Oven is dishwasher safe and does not need to be seasoned like non-enamelled cast iron. Therefore, maintaining its high quality is just as easy as using it. Grab one for your own kitchen or as the perfect gift for newlyweds or new homeowners.
Here are some promising reviews from Nordstrom, where it has a 4.9 star rating:
“This is my first cast iron cookware and right out of the box (after washing) I made a gumbo that cooked for 3 1/2 hours and it might be the best dish I’ve ever made.” It was perfect and took less than 5 minutes to clean with little effort. This cookware is awesome and I look forward to using the 10 inch skillet to cook roast potatoes and onions.” — ok
“This is THE best quality enamelled cast iron pot. Made in France and not in China. Heats food evenly and keeps it moist. So many possibilities and uses. I now love Staub products and look forward to my next purchase.” — CeeCee8
“I have used heavy duty stainless steel pans for years and bought this pot for baking bread. However, I had decided to start it with a stew. It was perfect and I noticed that the cooking surface heated and browned evenly, even to the edges of the pot. I cook on induction and usually have to move the cuts of meat from the center to the edges to prevent over-browning. This pot heats evenly. Besides, it’s pretty nice.” — onasmom
“I LOVE this cocotte! I made Orange Chicken tonight and the pot held the temperature perfectly while I roasted two pounds of chicken; didn’t have to adjust it once. And clean up was a breeze. I have several pottery/cast ironware from Staub and would highly recommend them to both home cooks and professionals.” — Jennifer C
“I love that Staub Cocotte makes my stew even tastier. Plus, the basil color is more fun in the kitchen. Compared to regular cast iron cookware, cleaning is not a problem. It’s a worthwhile purchase and I highly recommend it.” — tic tac
