Staub cocotte sizes
When it comes to Staub cocotte sizes, it’s fair to say that Staub do things their own way…and judging by their success to date, who can blame them.

The issue that most people have is the Staub sizes. They do not advertise their cocotte sizes in quarts like most other manufacturers like Le Creuset or Cuisinart. Instead, they advertise their products by diameter…e.g. 22 cm, 24 cm.
This makes it quite difficult to compare sizes and prices for comparison purposes. In fact, without addressing several websites and a handful of google searches, it can be quite frustrating.

In this post, I have done the hard work for you by putting together a Staub size guide which gives you a Staub cocotte size chart and comparison.
This should save you plenty of time and make your decision making a little bit easier.

Should I choose Staub?
If you are choosing Staub as your next Dutch oven or braiser…well done. They are an outstanding premium brand that deliver fantastic traditional looking cast-iron products that are simply beautiful. Fantastic colors and outstanding build quality, Staub are really pushing Le Creuset in the premium end of the market.

You will find Staub size charts and tables below that should help you find what you are looking for. I have added the information that is most helpful. Of course, if you need other dimensions or details, you can always refer to Staub’s website. I must warn you though, it’s not always the simplest to navigate!

Why is Staub so expensive?
When you look at the variety of Dutch ovens and Cocottes on the market, it can be quite confusing. The range of pricing for similar size items can be quite large. The important thing to remember is that not all Dutch ovens are built the same. Take a car for example, you have cheaper Fords and expensive BMW’s.

The same applies in this market. They may do similar things but the build quality, branding and customer service is widely different. When you are buying a premium brand like Staub or indeed, Le Creuset, you are buying the very best.

This means cast iron that is the finest quality, enameling that will last and stand the test of time and aftercare that actually exists.

By all means, opt for a cheaper product like Lodge but if you can afford it, I would always recommend a premium brand like Staub.

Alternatives to Staub

There is only one real alternative to Staub and that is Le Creuset. When comparing the two, Staub are the newer brand when compared to Le Creuset’s hundred odd years in business. If anything, it is Staub that is trying to catch Le Creuset…and if you read the feedback, they are doing a great job.

There are plenty of old Le Creuset customers that moved over to Staub. Some of them will argue that the Staub is the better overall product.
Personally, I think they are so close that it ultimately comes to what style you prefer. Of course, you have more options with Le Creuset but ultimately, it comes down to what catches your eye.


I hope you find this information of use and it has saved you some time searching around. In an ideal world, this information would be easily accessible.
Congratulations on choosing Staub, you won’t be disappointed. They are exceptional cocottes. Fantastic design, colors and build. You can read a review I did here, as you will see, it did exceptionally well.
