Staub is a brand of enameled cast iron cookware and bakeware that was originally headquartered in Turckheim, Alsace, France.[1] The first piece, a cocotte (Dutch oven), was designed by Francis Staub in 1974.[2] Pieces are manufactured with cast iron covered with double-glazed enamel.[3][2] The enamel coating makes the cookware rustproof, and enables for easy cleaning.[1][3] Staub's cocottes have nubs on the interior of the lids, which enables condensation to collect and drip down to baste foods uniformly as they are cooking.[4]

Production[edit]

In 2008, Staub operated three production facilities in France, a joint venture in Japan and a marketing branch in the United States.[6][5]
