Premium French cookware company Staub specializes in enameled cast-iron cocottes, fry pans and grill pans. Nordstrom carries Staub cocottes (also known as Dutch ovens or French ovens) in a range of sizes, including popular 4-quart styles. Due to their heavy-duty construction and heavy lids, cast-iron cocottes and pans are among the most versatile types of cookware and can be used both on the stovetop and in the oven. Since cast iron does a superb job of conducting and holding heat, it's ideal for long, slow cooking methods—whether you're simmering soups, cooking down beans or braising meats. Plus, the enameled interiors mean that Staub cookware is ideal for tomato sauces and other acidic foods. And when it comes to maintenance and cleaning, Staub cookware doesn't require seasoning and washes up beautifully with soap and water. Because Staub heavy-duty cast-iron cookware is a go-to kitchen workhorse that lasts and lasts, it does cost more than lightweight cookware—and it's worth the investment. In fact, it's proudly passed down through the generations! Count on Nordstrom for a great selection of Staub and other top-quality cookware.
