Yeah if it's not made in the Cocotte region in France, it's just a sparkling Dutch oven.

So why is this worth the price?
Quote from riderbike37

My question as well---seems outrageously overpriced for a piece of cast iron.
That's kind of subjective. You're paying a lot for the name brand and the provenance. If you don't care about that, you can get a Dutch oven from Lodge or similar companies that will work just as well at a third of the price. That said, I've been using my Staub for over a decade. I use it more than any other piece of cookware, almost daily, and it's holding up fantastically well. I'm sure I'll be using it for decades to come. Once you amortize the purchase price over decades of use, I'm more than happy with the value.

Also, the reason other Dutch ovens are so inexpensive is because they're made in China by a workforce earning practically nothing. Staub cookware is made in France, in the same factory for the last half-century, by a workforce earning a living wage and benefits. That costs more. It doesn't necessarily make one product better than the other, and I'm not trying to make it a moral issue, but it's not just that they're jacking up the price astronomically for no reason. It costs significantly more to make, and that's reflected in the price.

Wtf makes this so special to have this insane price
I have had other enamel Dutch ovens in the $30-50 range. After a few years of use and getting bumped around the coating falls off, then the metal rusted and they end up in the trash. A Staub will last longer. The heat is also more even. Plus you get that great looking French design.

For someone who enjoys cooking. Having a quality equipment really makes a difference.

That being said. The suggested retail price of $400 is insane.

We've got Staub, Le Creuset , Cuisinart, have used various "house brands". They all work. We enjoy the staub models the best because we like their interiors, Le Creuset 2nd, any other brands are all basically the same. The Staub makes the best artisan bread rounds for whatever reason. Well worth the cost though especially if your just getting one to have forever.


If you want to get into bread, pick up the book Flour Water Salt Yeast and a Dutch oven and hate inferior breads forever.

Because it's called a "cocotte". If you call it a "dutch oven" like most of the world, you can score one anywhere for less than $50!!

I bought the 4qt for $99 and 7qt for $125 few months back. I think I got awesome deals for both but I feel like 4 is too small and 7 is too large for normal everyday stuff. 5 is probably perfect.
Looking to sell ur 7qt?

Pros of Staub:
  • Comes with high-temp oven safe stainless-steel lid knob. You have to buy that separately from Le Creuset.
  • Lid has lots of little cone-shaped bumps that are supposed to funnel evaporated juices more efficiently back down on top of food for braising. Don't know if it make much difference in practice, but it sounds nice.
Pros of Le Creuset:
  • Light off-white enamel coating on the inside makes it easier to judge doneness when browning are caramelize than Staub's black coating.
I've had my Staub Dutch Oven for over a decade and I use it more than any other piece of cookware, almost daily. So I can attest to the quality. Next time I'll probably go with Le Creuset, but it will likely be another decade or more before I need to.
This person cooks. Anybody that does will understand why the comment about the color of the inside makes this a deal breaker for me. It would be very hard to judge the color of the fond inside a black interior (vs the white interior of a Le Creuset).

I own 3 smaller (2.5 - 4 qt) staubs, and 3 larger (5-9qt) le creusets. and the staubs get by far the most use. If I'm making a big 1-pot meal/soup then the LCs come into play, but I love the 4qts because I can use multiple ones on my (smallish) stove at the same time without crowding burners. This 5 qt is intriguing -- as I understand it's the same diameter as the 4qts.

I read somewhere that "LeCruset is for people who like colors and Staub are for people who like to cook."

I am not personally knocking LC but I love my Staub pieces (I have 5) more than anything else in my kitchen.

You get marginally better quality for the molding of the pot and lid, but mainly you are getting a higher quality enamel that is truly warrantied. Lodge does not honor warranties for their enamel in practice. Also better design in the weight to size ratio.
I have a lodge. And with mild use the bottom has already discolored quite a bit. This is usually very good quality stuff.

Made in France by skilled technicians. Highest quality multi layered enamel that is warrantied. Vessel and Lid engineered for a tight fit. The high quality enamel is most important part. Because after all, cast iron is cast iron. It's the enamel that sets them apart.

Compare that to Chinese Dutch ovens where enamel easily chips. And they're are made in factories lacking quality oversight.

Lodge is the best of all Chinese brands sensitive has quality standards and overseas the products in the Chinese factories.

Edit:. The 7QT, even on clearance from Zwilling site, is a better deal than this deal.
Did you copy and paste that from some where or is that based on your experience with the brand?
I don't see any 7 qts on Zwillings site that are a "better deal" than these 5 qts. They do have some on sale but they're more than double the price of these 5 qt, at <$400 with tax?
