Staub cast iron cocottes are known for being quality dutch ovens with a sleek design and easy-breezy functionality. They're also chip-resistant, which means you'll have them years from now. And currently, you can pick one up for up to 73 percent off at Zwilling. Not only is the best-selling 7-quart black matte round cocotte 71 percent off, but its sidekick 4-quart cherry round cocotte is 73 percent off.
That means the 7-quart cocotte just went from $557 to $160, while the 4-quart cocotte went from $443 to $120 (a major steal for cast irons designed to be as functional as they're good-looking). They have smooth black matte enamel interiors and bottoms that make browning and grilling food to your liking easier, and your food cooks more evenly. You can also go from boiling pasta for two on the stove to baking pie for your family in the oven because this baby can be used on all gas, electric, glass, ceramic, induction and halogen stovetops and ovens up to 900F (and 500F with the matching lid on).
One buyer says, "I never thought there would be a difference between the inexpensive dutch ovens and Staub. I found out there is when I prepared my first meal with it. Browning was a breeze, and the lid really helped retain the braising liquid. As a bonus, it is easy to clean." (Yes, it's dishwasher safe.)
Now all you have to do is decide which one to get, but we're going for the 7-quart size, which is great for medium to large recipes.
