About the Author
The grandson of a cookware merchant, Francis Staub designed his first enameled pot in an old artillery factory in 1974, merging cast iron’s utility with the latest technology available. Today, the success of these designs has become the benchmark for enameled cast-iron cookware and is the preferred brand for some of the world’s great chefs.
