Oh....I wish me a Merry Christmas, I wish me a Merry Christmas, I wish me a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

DH will not buy me such things as presents but, oh how I'd love to have this pot....isn't is a piece of art! Even a huge pot of chili would taste better cooked in this.

Maybe I'll forgo my All Clad Gold Standard bakeware & ...oh well, guess not...this pot is twice what the bakeware would be. :(

You need that!!!!! If you don't have an enamel over cast iron pot...you need to buy one.
The one linked below doesn't have that dear chicken as the handle....but it's $50 cheaper.

Wow, a $50 Chicken! Oh well, inflation, ya know? Now that I've seen that darn chicken I'll always want THAT one...darn...the one that "got away", I guess.

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Oh what the hey -- get the Staub! Afterall, Martha used to hawk the aubergine colored ones in her catalog a couple of years back...an imprimatur of good taste (raise pinky at this point).

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Oh - I love that! I just ordered a Staub 5 qt. from QVC for $50 dollors (alas no chicken) - but what's up with the huge price difference in their QVC line?

No chicken in the QVC line.....
I am dreaming of the day when I might be invited to someone's home who has a Staub with a chicken......and I can say..."Wow!! A Staub with a chicken!"....or conversly to someone's house with a Staub without a chicken on the lid....
I could say....."Tsk.....what a shame.....you didn't get a chicken on the lid.....*sigh*"..."

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

I have the 5 qt. Staub from QVC. I just saw the same thing today at Costco for about $125; I couldn't seen any difference between it and mine.

It's a great pot--I really like it.

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Yes, I know the one...It was a TSV. I got the flame red one and it is a great pot. But, it has no chicken so its classless! The chicken is the THING ya know...must have that chicken. (Actually, it looks like an old Studebaker hood ornament, sorta.) Maybe I should ask DH to take me to a salvage yard on a treasure hunt for a chicken to add to my 5 qt. flame red Staub pot from QVC? Now, THAT would represent class, don't ya think?


 o
RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Wait a second guys - I just realized....that's no chicken - that's a rooster!!!! I hope we didn't hurt his feelings...


 o
RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Well duh! It's Coq au Vin, not Chicken au Vin... ;)


 o
RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

All teasing aside (and thanks for the chuckles, y'all), if it were me, I'd get the rooster. It's a special piece of cookware, so why not get the pretty one? A beautiful but still practical indulgence, is the rooster-handled Staub.


 o
RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

I just sent DH the chicken (oops, I meant "rooster") link w/a sweet little note, "Dear Honey......"

Maybe, he'll forward my note to Santa???

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Wonder if they have a pan with a cute little lamby for braised lamb shanks.....


 o
RE: DH Response

Well, DH's response to my Xmas request..."That is a fowl pot!". :)


 o
RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Tell DH you will cry "foul" if he doesn't get it for you!

Well, since it's for slow cooking, how about a snail??

Both the snail and rooster are spiffy. This morning the Los Angeles Times today had the results of a "Braise-Off" between the Staub, Le Creuset, and Emile Henry.

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Interesting article...thanks. I didn't know the Staub had a dark interior. The one I purchased from QVC looks just like LC so it never occurred to me that their other lines would be a different interior color. I would HATE a dark interior...(don't like one in a purse either!) my eyes are bad enough. Guess I'll have to tell DH that my Xmas present request is a dead duck......

If you all get so excited about a coq, wait until you see this swine!

Cute, if you're into pigs.

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

I could not resist! When I saw that the piggy could be used on a gas stovetop as well as the oven there was no holding me back. He'll be on my stove by Thanksgiving which, thank goodness, I'm cooking this year. Thanks for the heads-up on the froggy & piggy.


 o
RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

I'm sure Miss Piggy will enjoy Thanksgiving at your place, but I'm guessing she'll miss Kermit. Have a heart! Give the frog a home! :)

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

OMG!!! That is hysterical!!!! What will you be serving in your pig? That little pig cracks me up! What is the little pig for?


 o
RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

Maggie -- Apparently the piglet is for good luck. As far as I'm concerned, the little hog could use it! Have you ever listened to "This little piggy"??? Wee-Wee-Wee, indeed.

Thanks for your comments on the cabinet poll in the Kitchen Forum, btw...I didn't want to take that thread OT, but here I am doing it to this one. Oops. Thanks, though!

RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

What am I going to serve...why Pigs In A Blanket, of course!


 o
RE: Staub Coq au Vin Pot

LOL Tricia - franks in a blanket (thats what we call them in the catering business so we can charge more!) if you want to be oh so fancy - but wait your serving it in that hog! I'm sure it will be a hit!

I think Miss Piggy should stay inter-species and stick with Kermit!

Susan - so when was this thread on topic!!! LOL - I personally prefer when treads go OT - much more INTERESTING!
