The Staub Round Dutch Oven 26cm Cherry is a real showpiece for your home. Use the pan, with a volume of 5.2 liters, for searing, frying, stewing, and caramelizing ingredients. The cast iron distributes heat gradually and evenly, and retains it well. When the pan is hot, you can turn down the heat. That way, your dish will continue to simmer until it's done and you'll save energy. The flat, heavy lid has little nubs all across the interior. This drip system, together with the condensation process, ensures that the contents of the Staub Dutch oven are continuously basted. Your dish will slowly simmer with barely any of the juices escaping.
