How do you make a cast iron pan better? Staub has an answer for you! First you manufacture the pan with an enameled cast iron interior that does not require seasoning, but gets better and better the more that it's used. Then you give it a modern twist with a beautiful birch-wood handle that is cool to the touch when cooking! All of Staub's amazing cast iron features are present in this fry pan: exceptional heat distribution and retention, matte black interior provides a surface to sear and brown and versatility (works on all cook tops, including induction.) Made in France.
