Product Spotlight: STAUB La Cocotte Dutch Oven
We currently have a range of the cast iron STAUB La Cocotte vegetable dutch ovens and we love them! Not only do they look beautiful, they are just a treat to cook with. We can’t decide if the tomato, artichoke or the pumpkin is our favourite! A cocotte is traditionally used for stewing and frying. It originated in France where this casserole dish was designed to cook chicken dishes: in fact, the word “cocotte” itself is the French word for “little hen”.
Comparable in quality and price with the well-known Le Creseut, these STAUB La Cocotte bring just that little extra something with their unique look. One of the most popular questions we get is, are they worth the price tag? We think so but starting at £175 we can understand why people ask. They are definitely an investment and with just a little care (just wash with warm water and washing up liquid, no harsh abrasives), they will truly last you a lifetime. This type of cookware has been passed down from generation to generation and will always be in style.
You’ll be surprised at how often you use your dutch oven – it goes from stove top (including induction hobs) to oven to table top – and the cast iron material ensures gentle and natural cooking to retain the full flavour of your food. The vegetable range is particularly good for stews, casseroles and soups, but you can do your Sunday roast in them and even bake bread. They really are an all-rounder pan that you reach for again and again. You can learn more on how to use and how to care for your STAUB cookware here.
