I love to cook and spend time in the kitchen but the one downside to my delicious hobby is that I’m constantly buying new kitchen gadgets and pans to try. Needless to say, I’m quickly running out of cabinet space. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for kitchen items that I can use in more than one way, and now, I’ve found the perfect option with the 2-in-1 pan from Staub.
Food52’s exclusive Staub 2-in-1 Grill Pan & Cocotte is perfect for all types of cooking. The bottom of the pan is a cocotte (or Dutch oven) and can be used for braising, baking, searing, simmering and more. But the lid of the cocotte is where things get exciting. While you can use the lid of the cocotte as just that, flip it over and suddenly, you have a grill pan that can be used on its own.
By creating a lid that also doubles as its own cooking vessel, you’re getting two kitchen items for the price of one! Plus, since they’re designed to work together, it means you’ll easily save space when you go to store them (aka the answer to my crowded kitchen cabinets!).
Both the cocotte and the grill pan are made from an enameled cast iron and are dishwasher safe, although Food52 recommends hand washing. You can use the cocotte and grill pan on all cooktops and it’s safe to go in the oven and under the broiler up to 500℉.
The cocotte comes in two colors including graphite (blue) and cherry (Buy them: Food52, on sale for $199-$209 depending on color). This handy, durable pan is a great option if you have a smaller kitchen and are looking to save space.
