Staub in teal @ Anthropologie

Anyone else buy the teal Staub? My order arrived, and I think the color is great.

  1. Oooo...pretty!!! Isn't that the LC dinnerware under it? Guess they saw how popular the LC Caribbean was. I love the way Staub does their glazes.

      It *is* beautiful. I thought the plate was Fiestaware, but I guess it could be LC.

      1. re: blondelle

        The plate is a modern Fiesta Ware salad plate in turquoise.

        Staub glazes have so much depth and gloss. In comparison, LC and even Staub's Fontignac both seem rather flat.

        BTW, Anthropologie also sells Staub in a color called wine.

        1. re: KansasKate

          I agree. I have both LC and Staub (and am very satisfied with the performance of both), but the colors/finishes on the Staubs seem so much richer.

      2. Is that the mini cocotte? I'm planning on grabbing one when I get my paycheck for March. It's such a gorgeous color!

        1. Thanks for heads up on the turquoise Staub at Anthropologie! I finally caved and bought the 4 qt round. I had a hard time deciding between it and the 4 1/2 qt oval. I have the 5 1/2 qt oval in the wine, so I decided on the round because of that! I absolutely love the turquoise and I feel I paid the extra money for the exclusive color through Anthropologie. But, just had to have it!

          Can't wait to see the color in person!

          1. Anyone know how this compares to LC Caribbean? Is it more green?

              i think it is more green. it's more peacock. i really like the le creuset caribbean but staub is even prettier, color wise. their glaze is shinier so all the colors seem to have more depth.

                If the sun ever comes out again, I'll try to remember to get a picture in natural light.

                  Thanks so much, I appreciate it! I think I've realized that I'm going nuts and that I don't need a teal pot - even if I would love one! I'm trying to build up a complete collection of basics and barely have room for what I need. It's been a sad dose of reality! I'm going to live vicariously through you! I'd love daylight pics if/when you can - thank you!!

                  1. re: olympia

                    Oh, well, it's not as though I really "needed" a piece in teal. I'm slowly building a set in sapphire/marin, which is why I didn't buy a larger (and more expensive) piece in teal. Since my everyday "it's-just-the-two-us" dishes are Fiesta turquoise, I knew the teal mini cocotte would not go unused, and it doesn't take up much room... which of course was my rationalization for buying two. :-)

                    1. re: KansasKate

                      It's really lovely! I'd love a piece and I have Fiesta turquoise too :) I was considering the 4 qt round but I don't think it's the right time - I've been acquiring too many other pots and pans recently. Love the pics - thanks so much!

              2. I haven't received mine yet, but I do like the LC Carribean also, but the Staub looked more turquoise to me than LC.

                  Got mine and the color is much more richer in person. I wish it was a little lighter but the color is beautiful!

                  1. re: olliesmom

                    If you happen to be able to post a picture that would be amazing! Hope you enjoy the pot!

                2. They must have different ducks in France to call that teal.

                  1. It seems, for now, that the Teal is a Anthropologie exclusive. I'm curious to see what they're going to roll out for "everyone else" in Chicago this coming week ...

                      What's going on in Chicago this week?

                      1. re: NotJuliaChild

                        Housewares show!

                        In a few months, select retailers in addition to Anthropologie will be stocking the teal staub.

                        1. re: kariface

                          Did staub say that at the show? Do you know if they will be making any other sizes in the teal for other stores? I love the color and how staub looks but wanted something larger than what anthro is carrying.

                          1. re: kimberlj

                            SAdly, it wont be coming in larger sizes. Theres something about the color not working out as well with larger sizes (which is why the titanium doesnt come in large sizes)

                            1. re: kariface

                              Thanks! When I called staub they said they *might* make the coq au vin which is a little bit bigger than what anthro currently has but definitely not big. Crossing fingers for at least a 5 qt.

                              1. re: kimberlj

                                It will certainly be in a 5 quart!

                            2. re: kimberlj

                              Other stores are now getting their orders of the teal in ... now, just to wait for my special ordered size to arrive!

                            3. re: kariface

                              I suspect the La Mer at SLT is the same as the Teal at Anthropologie. Has anyone compared them in person?

                              1. re: KansasKate

                                When I realized other stores are carrying the same teal as Anthropologie, I returned mine. I will get one at a later date, but absolutely love that color!

                                1. re: olliesmom

                                  When we decided to go to KC today, I took along the lid to my teal Staub in case we made it to the SLT store there, which we did. SLT's La Mer is much, much darker than Anthropologie's Teal. It looked good with it, though.

                                  The kitchen store in my small town has decided to carry Staub. They hosted a cooking demo & pre-order party last week. The new catalog they had did not show Teal or anything close. And the shaded Royal Blue has been replaced by the solid Dark Blue (aka Sapphire @ W-S and Marin Blue @ SLT).

                                    1. re: KansasKate

                                      The teal was/is an exclusive for independent stores - i'm guessing since your local store is new at carrying it, they're not included in the offer. However, if they have a good sales rep they work with, they can probably put the call in for you and get you one!
