The home of the STAUB brand is France, a country famous worldwide for its culinary tradition and really good food. Merville, in the north of France, is the place where STAUB creates high quality cast iron by combining traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology.

Each cast iron piece is truly unique and the result of a manufacturing process mixing the best of tradition and modern techniques. With its innovative inventions, STAUB has clearly optimized the benefits of the cocotte, creating outstanding cookware that is treasured by professional and home chefs around the world. And probably by you – as soon as you start cooking with STAUB.

There are a lot of words that can describe STAUB products: perfect, innovative, unique, and traditional. But there is one word that really means the world to us: Bravo. That’s because it’s actually a quote from Paul Bocuse himself. Here’s what the chef, the legend, and the holder of three Michelin Stars continuously for more than 50 years said: "A good knuckle of veal or osso bucco cooked in a cocotte is really something else. And that is precisely what differentiates French cuisine! Bravo to the STAUB cocotte."
