Founded by Francis Staub, Staub is a family-owned company based in Alsace, France, and is renowned among the world’s best chefs, who use Staub products not only in the kitchen, but also as tableware.
In June 2008, Staub joined the German Zwilling group, adding their products to an international line of cutlery and kitchen utensils. Staub ceramic bakeware is made from 100% natural material and can be used on five different cooking surfaces. Available in a variety of bright colours, Staub ceramic bakeware is a quality and affordable addition to your kitchen.
Staub cast iron cookware retains and evenly distributes heat for long periods of time, making it perfect for slow cooking meals and ideal for oven to table use. The self-basting spikes underneath the lid ensure continuous natural basting. Featuring black matte enamel interior, Staub cast iron cookware is highly durable, does not discolour or rust, is resistant to chipping, and is ready to use immediately with no need for seasoning (unlike many other cast iron products). Oils used in the cooking process penetrate the pores of the matte enamel, creating a natural non-stick surface.
Staub Pumpkin Soup Recipe
- 5 pounds pumpkin or butternut squash

Peel the pumpkin or squash and remove seeds. Cut into medium sized pieces. In Staub cocotte, cover squash with water, add salt & pepper & cook on medium heat until completely softened. Drain 3/4 of the water from the cocotte and puree squash. Cook on medium heat and add the butter in small pieces, until there is a creamy consistency. Add heavy cream and season with salt & pepper to taste.
