[Costco] 199.99 - Staub 6.6L french oven with grill pan lid

About 105 in stock at the time of posting.

Good volume for medium-large batches, and the lid doubles as a grill pan so you save some space. Solid deal for someone looking for quality enameled cast iron cookware!

And if you don't end up liking it, costco return policy is legendary as always.

Edit: Price in title. Clearly new to RFD lol

This is a pretty good deal, the sizing is great too. Only wish I had disposable income right now. I've been wanting something like this for awhile.

Question. for enameled cast iron, can you use a metal fork or knife in it like regular cast iron, or is that a big nono?

I am usually a Le Creuset guy, but I can assume the care instructions are similar for any brand.

You can use metal utensils to stir or anything gentle, but you should not use them to scrape or things like that. Basically good to go if you are gentle, but I baby my pans so I use only nylon/silicone.

I’m a Le Creuset guy myself. This seems like a great deal compared to LC prices.

How does this compare in terms of quality?

Staub is equal or better quality. They’re giving You a grill lid instead of their regular lid. The regular lid is better since it has the points for self basting and a metal knob. Staub also has better moisture retention if that is what you’re looking for, due to a tighter fitting lid.

The only downside of staub is the dark interior.

As the previous post says, equal or better. Really a question of preference, and the differences are small.

I know the feeling... Start coming to a forum to save money, end up spending a bunch more. But atleast we are getting nice things I guess!

couple of points to consider for anyone looking at these.

The lid enamel can get scratched or rather scuffed on gas stovetop grills when using in pan mode.

When the pan is being used as a lid it can also baste whatever you have in the Dutch oven as the moisture drips back onto the food but you need to make sure you’ve cleaned the grill part really well or it will flavour your food. Think of burger flavored bread :)

We have one and gave it to family as they only occasionally use.

Hamburger flavored bread sounds like a plus but that's just me Face With Tears Of Joy Definitely something to consider however.

I keep coming back to this thread hoping someone says it's sold out so the control can be taken out of my hands.

Don't recommend people buy this kind of design because you don't have a knob on the lid...makes it more difficult to lift it off when the entire thing is hot with mittens on.
Similarly, when using the lid to grill, you don't have a handle from which to move a heavy piece of equipment (nor is the pan as heavy/thick as it would be if it was a normal cast iron pan).

You're spending so much on a dutch oven, you can spend another $30ish on a dedicated cast iron pan and buy a normal dutch oven. Only reason to get something like this is if you're very space conscious...like travelling in an RV or something like that.
