The Staub Cast Iron Essential French Oven features a Chistera lid, which is the latest feature in the Staub cast iron collection. Compared to Staub's signature flat lid, the domed Chistera lid has excellent self-basting properties. Usually, a convex lid causes condensation to fall to the sides. The innovative, Chistera drop-structure lid solves this problem by putting a twist on traditional spikes. Moisture cascades from the whole lid. This continuous basting guarantees delectable roast chicken and braised short ribs. What inspired this original design? Basque pelota players use wicker basket chisteras to scoop up balls and hurl them quickly. Under Staub's new lids, the chistera-shaped curves gather condensation to shower moisture upon the delicious dish that simmers inside. The incredible heat retention and even heat diffusion gives your food consistent texture and taste in every bite. Staub's innovative multi-coat enamel is indestructible, it will never chip or discolor, keeping your sure-to-be family heirloom looking like new after every use. Made in France with a lifetime warranty.
