Staub 3.75-quart Essential French Oven in Grenadine
$299.00
$199.99

Designed by Samuel Accoceberry, a native of France, the lid of this 3.75-quart Essential French Oven is equipped with swoosh-shaped ridges inspired by the chistera instrument used in Basque pelota — a French sport similar to racquetball. The ridges serve as a self-basting mechanism that continuously drops water on your food to bring out the full intensity of its flavor. What inspired this original design? Basque pelota players, who use wicker basket chisteras to scoop up balls and hurl them quickly. Under Staub’s new lids, the chistera-shaped curves gather condensation to shower moisture upon the delicious dish that simmers inside. Uncover the secret for making special stews with the Essential French Oven.
