Staub's innovative enamel coating takes cast-iron cooking to the next level with improved performance, style and durability. Whether you're using it for berry cobblers or macaroni & cheese, this cast-iron French favorite is adept at coaxing crispy brown crusts or toppings. Heavyweight enameled cast iron transfers and retains heat evenly. Matte Black selection features multi-coat enameling with low-gloss matte finish. Resistant to rust, chipping and cracking, the coating requires no additional seasoning like some other cast-iron pieces. Specially formulated black matte interior enamel contains traces of quartz, giving it additional heat resistance and a rougher surface for better browning. Dishwasher safe. Made in France.
