Staub Cast-Iron Mussel Pot

You'll find this stylish cast-iron pot in French bistros and cafes, where chefs rely on it to prepare and serve their signature mussels in savory broth. The shell-shaped pot cooks mussels to perfection, then goes right to the table for presentation. It comes with a stainless-steel rack for holding the discarded shells. Shell-shaped pot has a built-in strainer that makes it easy to spoon up the flavorful broth - plus a rack for holding discarded shells. Heavy cast iron heats evenly - and helps keep mussels and broth warm at the table. Matte black multi-coat enameling with low-gloss finish; nickel-plated brass knob on lid. Resistant to rust, chipping and cracking, the coating requires no additional seasoning like some other cast-iron pieces. The specially formulated black matte interior enamel of this piece contains traces of quartz, giving it additional heat resistance. The smooth enameled base is compatible with all cooktops including induction. Made in France.

Cute but limited use
December 20, 2011
Typical Staub quality and workmanship, but the mussel pot's use is limited to its stated intention: mussel recepticle. Fair enough.
The "caged" area inside can be used for putting your empty shells into, only if you're serving a few, otherwise the caged area is too small for a full pot of mussels and you will have to use a separate recepticle. The caged area can be used as an area to dip your bread into the juices without mussels getting in the way.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Design, Weight
