Does your Staub lid wobble?

kelsoldJuly 3, 2010

I am returning a Staub 6 qt. coq au vin oval pot to Amazon because the lid wobbles. I have two smaller round Staub pots and the lids don't wobble.

This is my first oval pot purchase. Are they supposed to wobble on this type of pot? The description says "tight fitting lid", so I reasoned it should not wobble.

Just wondering what your experience is.

I have the Staub piece that actually looks like a chicken (for reference, in grenadine ) and the lid does not wobble. Also a 4 qt. round one without wobble. I have heard that Staub's quality control is an issue and some lids are not properly tight-fitting. The beauty of Staub/Le Creuset-type pots is the thickness and tight fit that, together, allow for slow cooking without scorching and burning. If the lid does not fit properly, by all means, return the pot!

I received a replacement today from Amazon and the lid fits properly so I'm glad I returned the first one.

Tomorrow, I make coq au vin!

Thanks for your follow up.
