A select few culinary classics are so iconic, so timeless, so perfect, that they cannot be given too much recognition. Staub's 5.75 Quart Coq au Vin is a special edition of the premium enameled cast iron cookware that celebrates one of French Cuisine's finest accomplishments. The 5.75 Quart Coq au Vin is an oval cocotte with plenty of room to sear and braise a whole cut chicken, and the lid is even adorned with a proud rooster knob in stainless steel. But it's no one-trick-pony! The Coq au Vin is a competent and versatile braiser and roaster that can sear and slow-cook any meat, vegetable, stew or soup with rich, succulent results. Enameled cast iron is great on any stove top, even induction, and those made by Staub have a smooth glazed bottom that won't damage glass cook tops. The closely fitted flat lids retain more moisture and feature self-braising spikes on the underside that redistribute condensing steam evenly over foods to keep them tender and juicy. And the matte black enameled interiors come pre-seasoned from the factory so a natural non-stick coating starts to form after your first few uses. Side handles provide secure handling when cooking. With an exceptional heat retention capacity this product is ideal for slow-cooking many delicious meals, some of which can be found in the complementary recipe guide that is also provided. The 5.75 Quart Coq au Vin includes a manufacturer's lifetime warranty. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. Measures 14.8" l x 12.2" w x 8" h; 15 lbs.
