This Staub frying pan is made of solid cast iron. Cast iron is known to retain heat excellently and to distribute this heat gradually and evenly. Once hot you can lower the heat. The reverse also applies, the pan also remains cool longer. As such you could also keep your dishes cool outside the refrigerator on a hot summer's day. These properties make cast iron pans perfect for cooking, roasting and stewing.
Majolica email: gloss, intense deep colours
The deep intense enamel colour is achieved with high gloss with the help of the so-called majolica enamel technique. Every pan is covered with two, three layers of enamel. A base coat covers the cast iron. The second layer gives the pan the desired colour and the last layer provides the high gloss with contrasting nuances.
The production process
The melted cast iron is cast in a sand shape. Each sand shape is only used once, so every pan is unique. Surplus cast iron is removed after taking the pan out of the sand. All remains of the foundry sand and other imperfections are also removed. Then the cast iron is prepared for the enamel layers. After applying the enamel layers, the pan is baked for 30 minutes at 800 degrees Celsius. This results in a solid pan that will last for generations!
