K13773 - Basix by Staub Enameled Cast Iron 6 qt. French Oven
Professional French Oven, a Winner
We purchased this French oven a few years ago and have used it tons - in the oven and on top the stove and it has been a winner every time. It is great for lamb, chili, stews and anything you could think of on the stovetop. In the oven it is an all time winner; great turkey breast, roast , duck, fish and venision. Clean up is a breeze. I give this FIVE stars. I came back and bought a different color, my first was blue and also got the periwinkle as QVC was discontinuining and If anything happened to my first, could not be without a backup. QVC keep carrying Staub --- a 5-Star product.
I just love this french oven !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought for myself one about 2 months ago....I just love it... The quality of this French Oven can't be beat.....either can the price for that matter. I use it on the stovetop, in the oven, serve in it at the table....It is a beautiful and every thing I cook in it comes out so well. It cleans so easily, even the toughest baked on foods clean up with very little effort. I just bought one for my sister for her birthday today...I know she will love it too!!!!!
This is the best pot I own - I recommend it highly
This is the best pot I own, I love everything about it. I have two other smaller Staub pots (and one more that I purchased for my brother who is an excellent cook), yet this 6 quart is the absolute best. I purchased the lavender pot, and I wish there were another choice other than brown because I'd buy another pot right away. I hope QVC gets new colors of this pot, into its inventory, very soon.
Love This French Oven!!!!!
I absolutely LOVE this dutch oven!!!! I have it in Yellow, and it is soooo pretty. I just made Julia Child's boeuf bourguignon, first searing the meat and then cooking it on the stove top for 3.5 hours and it was absoulutely DELICIOUS. My boyfriend is still raving about it and he cannot wait until I make it again. Cleanup? Not a problem. I just used hot soapy water, no scubbing necessary at ALL!!! Came out like new. I also made Italian wedding soup in this pot, same thing, came out GREAT and easy clean up!.. I highly recommend this pot, plus when not in use, it is proudly displaced on the open shelf in my corner hutch because it is just soooo pretty to look at. Prettier than the Le Creuset and at more than half the price!!! You cannot go wrong with this dutch oven.
This Pan is Wonderful!!!
You can't beat the value of this French Oven pan. It is a dream to clean and browns beautifully. I use it all the time and just love how evenly the food cooks.
i'm in love!
my husband bought me one 2 years ago...it's the greatest! I have made pot roast, chili, lasagna, baked spaghetti, and more...I have even used it to fry chicken! It cleans up so easily, the lid keeps everyting moist and seals in the flavors...I'm in love with it! I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys cooking! It would be the gift that never gets returned!
Can't Be Beat!
The weight, quality and price can't be beat! I use mine weekly and love the ease of self basting and super easy clean up~~food comes out perfect and the temperature stays constant with an electric glass top burner. I like the Staub line so much I have given three as gifts!!!! I wish QVC would offer more of their products~~pleeeze!
Our go-to pot!
We have the 4 qt Staub Enamel cast iron and WE (my husband and I) BOTH LOVE IT. PLEASE, can you make it in an 8 quart!!!! It cleans easily, cooks evenly. I've roasted a chicken, made chicken soup, chili, etc. etc. It's fantastic. BUT I WANT ONE IN A LARGER SIZE. Also, and very importantly, the handles are all oven-proof (as opposed to some other brands.) I have 2 LeC models and the Staub cooks just as well. Not as pretty, but pretty enough for the price! (Please make an 8 quart.)
Good value for an excellent cooking pot!
I just made braised short ribs in this french oven, and they turned out fabulous! The meat turned out tender and delicious due to even heat distribution and a tight lid with little "squiggles" on the inside surface of the lid to let the steam condensation drip back onto the food. Clean up was so easy: just a quick swish with a sponge. Why pay 3 times more for the fancy French brand when this Staub works just as well?
Actually love the color........
I went back and forth on this one having a round 5 l/2 qt Le Creuset......but, really wanted an oval. Found this too late to get my first color choice....HOWEVER! I chose the Lavender and am I happy with it or what?! It leans more towards a purple with a subtle gradation of the lid's top from a dark lavender to a dark purple at the edge...very nice touch. The quality is there. I went over it with a fine tooth comb. Did find two of what 'looks' like nicks at the top of the base's edge but they were glazed over so won't be a problem.......this is handmade so a bit of character never bothers me. As a matter of fact, my white $230.00 LE arrived with subtle black streaks.....very light ones or I would have sent it back.....I'm assuming the person who carried it from one place to another rubbed it against something......again......doesn't bother me. I really do recommend this line of Staub. The price is great!
I just received my French oven and have already used it for many recipes such as Coq au Vin and Pot Roast. Both recipes turned out perfect and very flavorful. Clean up was a cinch!
I can aleady see this item as indespensible in my kitchen, there are so many more recipes I can now do with one pot for stovetop and oven.
Very heavy item, which assures a tight fitting lid. I got the lavendar color, which is lovely.
Absolutely LOVE this
I use this all the time - it cooks evenly and cleans up so nicely!
