It’s no secret that we here at Reviewed are obsessed with Staub cookware—particularly when it comes to the French-made brand’s Dutch oven. Its 5.5-quart round cocotte is the best one you’ll find on the market, beating out even cooking darling Le Creuset for our top spot. And while the original will cost you a pretty penny (it’s currently going for $259.95 at Amazon), you can get a special Williams Sonoma x Staub 5.5-quart version for a huge discount right now.
Regularly $249.95, this top-rated cooking vessel is currently 50% off at Williams Sonoma, dropping to just $124.96. According to shoppers, this collaborative cocotte has the exact same fit as the Staub, which we found superior to Le Creuset's in testing because of the way it sat on the stove and in storage. In fact, as the happy buyer noted, the only real difference seemed to be found in the lid handle. “And I like this one better than the knobs on the Staub,” she wrote.
Cooking wise, the original Staub aced every test we threw at it, from braising meat and veggies to simmering stews, thanks to its steady, even cooking and large sautéing surface.
The William Sonoma x Staub Dutch oven, which also comes in blue, is a bit heavier than the one we tested (12 pounds, 14 ounces versus 11 pounds, 8 ounces), with extra heft in the lid to lock in moisture for tenderness. Both models are oven and broiler safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, however, and you can wash them in the dishwasher without fear of ruining them.
The discounted collaborative cocotte is a clearance purchase, so you won’t be able to cancel your order or return it. Given the brand power behind it, however, we have no doubt you'll be pleased with your purchase. There's also a Williams-Sonoma lifetime warranty on any item "found defective in material, construction or workmanship under normal use and following care instructions."
With savings this high, it's not likely to last long, so we recommend scooping this one up while you can.
