The Staub Cast Iron Pumpkin Cocotte is one of our favorite cookware pieces. This distinctive cast iron cocotte replicates a pumpkin shape, complete with a "stem" handle crafted of solid brass. Ideal as a serving dish, but, more important, it is perfect for making soups, stews, chowders and even sauces. Even better, Staub cast iron cookware is compatible with all cooktops, including induction. No pre-seasoning required either! With Staub's innovative multi-coat enamel, this piece is practically indestructible, it will never chip or discolor, keeping your soon-to-be family heirloom looking like new after every use.
