Company history

A taste for excellence

The Staub journey begins in the Alsace region of France. Rich in history, food and craft, the area is renowned for hearty one-pot recipes and fine enamelled ceramics.
Today the success of these designs has become the benchmark for enamelled cast iron cookware and is the reference brand for some of the world’s great chefs including Paul Bocuse. The winning result is French enamelled cast iron cookware that marries the expression of the artisan with the culinary imagination of gourmet chefs to produce the ultimate in comfort food. With as much attention as the Alsatians applied to perfecting the one-pot meal, Staub’s founder set himself to perfecting the pot itself.

The grandson of a cookware merchant, Francis Staub designed his first enamelled pot in an old artillery factory in 1974, merging the utility of cast iron with the latest technology available. Featuring a special black matte enamel interior for non-stick braising and self-basting spikes, Staub cookware excels in providing the perfect environment for slow-cooked, flavor-enhanced meals. With a wide assortment of interesting presentation pieces in dynamic colors, Staub cookware easily moves from the kitchen to the table at home and in the finest restaurants worldwide - a testimony to its quality and enduring beauty. Today the stork of Alsace is a symbol of Staub heritage that distinguishes Staub products. All Staub products continue to be manufactured in France and are available worldwide.

In June 2008, Staub became one of the prestige cookware brands in the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS Group. A natural complement to the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS culinary heritage, Staub will continue to merge technology with tradition, artisan with craftsman to turn its expertise with cast iron and ceramics into more innovative ovento-
table merchandise.
