This stylish pot has a pine tree design on the lid which represents wisdom and longevity in Japanese, Korean and Chinese culture. With that in mind, the shape of the pot is ideal to preparing day to day dishes. The shape of the pot makes it large enough for a stir fry and material of the pot makes it ideal for searing, stir-frying, stewing or even steaming. Just like all Staub's cast iron pots, this pot is energy efficient. After cooking, set the pot aside with its lid close and food can remain warm for a longer time compared to conventional pots. Not only heat, this pot remains cool for hours if it is chilled or frozen. The 3.6 litre pot can be used for serving desserts such as ice cream, pudding or sweet soups like pear with snow fungus.
The matte black inner enamelling is ideal for particularly crisp searing. Perfect to creating the golden brown crisp layer on meat while keeping it moist. With a heavy lid, the pot is sealed tightly to retain moisture within the dish. The constant basting process which is encouraged by the unique lid structure produces juice, tender and intense flavours during cooking. For those who want a healtier cooking option, you can cook with very little oil or water. The material do not leach out to the food. If heated up properly, food very almost doesn't stick to the pot despite the lack of oil.
It doesn't matter which types of hob you have because the pot is suitable for all hob types, including induction. Prepare the dish on the stove and move it to the oven without any concerns. In short, this is a very durable pot which is highly chip and scratch resistant.
