A $99 Staub Dutch oven will make any foodie smile

Nab some fine French cookware at more than 65% off.


When a piece of cookware this exquisite goes on sale we are simply obligated to share the news and, truth be told, this just might be the best kitchen deal to score for a home chef on your list. Plus, it's guaranteed to arrive before Christmas. Right now a cherry-red Staub 4-quart enameled cast iron cocotte is down to $99 at Williams Sonoma. That's more than 65% off the normal price and matches the lowest price we've seen for it. Note: this is not confirmed to arrive before Christmas.

If you're wondering what a cocotte is, it's essentially a small Dutch oven with a fancier name and one of the most versatile pots you can own. Cast iron retains heat as well as anything and distributes it evenly, making this a perfect vessel for slow and low braising or smaller roasts in the oven. The tough enameled coating is designed for easy release so cleanup is a breeze. The 4-quart cocotte will also come in handy for a slow Sunday sauce or simmering stew, and Staub's time-tested, quality construction will last for decades, if not longer.
