Staub Cookware - got one - looking for more

I just purchased a 5 quart Staub at a local outlet (Reading China and Glass), for 50 bucks. So far, I love it. Eventually, I'd like to add the 8 Qt version, or even 10 quarts if they make one that large.

Unfortuately, my local store does not carry this size. Anyone know where to get a great deal like that on Staub cookware? Any suggestions for another suitable brand without spending 200 bucks?

  1. Oh ya, I forgot to mention - I'm also investigating a new grill pan. Staub makes one the size I'd like, and they have it here locally for 25 bucks. Anyone have experience with this? It has a folding handle, which is nice, but I'm worried it will break easily.

    1. QVC currently stocks the 4, 5, and 6 quart pots (5 qt for $59.40), and the grill pan mentioned. I don't know if they have ever carried a larger range, if this is new for them, or if it is discontinued stock for them. Maybe worth a call to their custemr service line.

      1. Have you talked to someone at the store (manager, owner, or someone who cares) to see if they can order what you may need?

        They are online, (link below) so you can possibly search the net for bargains or other sellers at your home leisure.

        Careful to take into account shipping these days, as they are not getting cheaper. You may find it is rather cost prohibitive (gasp) when shipping almost equals or exceeds the items cost.


        1. right now has an amazing sale on Staub. Really great prices. Go to the Gold Box link on the upper right and there you will find the link to the sale!

          1. blondelle,
            Thank you so much for posting about the amazon sale on staub. It literally took me less than 5 minutes to check out the sale, email my friend about it, buy the staub, and send a second email to my friend again.

            I got the bleu 5 qt le cocotte for 99.99 plus FREE shipping.

              Oh no! For 5 more bucks (and assuming you don't mind red) you could have gotten the 3 piece starter set which includes the 9 inch grill pan, the 9 inch oval roasting dish, and the 5 quart round oven. Choose that $25 discount and it all comes down to $104.99.

                Thanks for the tip, HaagenDazs, I just jumped on it.

                I didn't really feel I could afford to be buying more kitchen items right now but this deal seemed WAY too good to pass up. Would I have preferred another color, sure. And I really thought I was wed to LC on brand, but all research led me to believe that I wasn't going to be disappointed (that they are from Alsace was a positive point of influence in the decision process).

                QUESTION: Anyone think I SHOULD NOT use the grill pan as a broil pan?

                I have a recipe in my repertoire for broiled swordfish

                but believe it or not, no broil pan for the oven. I have used a high wall All-Clad grill pan but would prefer not to if I can use this instead.

                1. re: HaagenDazs

                  I saw that AFTER I placed my order...but didn't do the calculations that it would only be $5 more and I get the additional two pieces...crap! Oh well...Thanks though

                    There have surely been worse things ;-) Still a great price!

                    1. re: BellaDonna

                      Has your order shipped yet? (It seems that most things aren't in stock yet and are set to ship in February.) If not, you can cancel your original order and place another order for the set. Although I like the bleu...

                        It took less than two days to be delivered.

                    2. re: HaagenDazs

                      The set is on the Friday sale today for $110.

                      1. re: Dee S

                        If it's for $110, it's still $5 more than I paid for it considering you can only use the $25 dollar off coupon on purchases over $125.

                        Total purchase price including shipping of $104.99
