Staub was made known by Francis Staub, the grandson of a cookware merchant, from the Alsace region of France. In 1974, Staub created its first innovative product which is an enameled pot made while utilizing cast iron with the latest technology during that time. It became the standard of enameled cast iron cookware designs and has provided efficiency for slow-cooked flavor enhanced meals done by chefs and cooks. The special black matte enamel interior for non-stick braising and self-basting spikes is a unique feature that sets Staub cookware apart from other brands. They also offer a variety of products that is widely used from simple households to the finest restaurants around the world.
