Staub offers some of the highest quality cast iron cookware in the world. Complete with an enameled surface, the brand’s cookware is easy to care for and performs exceptionally well in the kitchen. While the brand offers a wide range of pots, pans, and specialty cookware, their collection of mini cocottes is one of their most popular products.
In addition to the mini cocottes, Staub also offers:
- Round and shallow round cocottes – Also known as the French oven, round cocottes are great for cooking soups, casseroles, stews, roasts and other one-pot meals.
- Oval and shallow oval cocottes – These are ideal for braising, browning meats, and cooking fish, soups and stews.
Every cocotte is made in France with exceptional quality.
The Staub mini cocotte can be used for a variety of cooking tasks, including:
- Preparing stews and soups
Due to their ability to withstand high cooking temperatures, these cocottes can be used for just about any cooking job.
The design of the cocotte is what really makes it one of a kind, and allows for its exceptional performance in the kitchen.
Its tight-fitting lid allows less humidity to escape when cooking. As a result, 10 percent more moisture is retained after 55 minutes of cooking when compared to competing cookware.
Spikes on the interior of the flat lid create a rainfall effect over the food. This self-basting system keeps food flavorful and tender.
The rough texture of the cocotte makes it ideal for browning foods. Cocottes are oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, dishwasher safe and include a brass knob. The smooth enamel bottom allows this pot to be used on any cooktop surface.
Staub’s mini cocottes come in a variety of colors, including:
- Graphite Grey
- Black Matte
- Dark Blue
Because of its small size, the mini cocotte is the best Staub cookware for small households or single serving meals.
- Self-basting system keeps food tender, juicy and flavorful
- Tight-fitting lids keep heat and moisture inside of the pot
- Oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit
- Dishwasher safe
- Comes in a variety of colors
- Only available in one size
Mini cocottes are only available in a 0.25-quart size, making them ideal only for single serving meals.
Staub’s mini round cocottes are one of the most affordable cookware pieces offered by the brand. The round and oval cocottes are larger in size and higher priced, but can be used to cook larger meals. The mini cocottes are perfectly priced for single or two-person households.
Durability & Maintenance
Staub cast iron cookware features an enameled surface that does not require seasoning before use and comes with anti-adhesive properties. This allows the cookware to be dishwasher safe and easy to clean while preserving the heat retaining properties of cast iron cookware.
Because these mini cocottes are made from cast iron, they’re built to last a lifetime. The enameled surface also improves the pot’s resistance to scratching and thermal shocks for easy care and maintenance throughout its lifetime.
