The Dutch oven (rightfully) gets a lot of love from Kitchn editors. We feel bad, though, because there's another piece of cast iron, enameled cookware that gets the short end of the stick: Allow us to give some love to braisers!

If you're looking to get one, this gorgeous option from Staub (complete with a domed glass lid for the curious cook who is tempted to peak) is currently a whopping 57 percent off at Sur la Table.

Why get a braiser?

Braisers are shorter and wider than Dutch ovens, so they have more surface area for cooking meats. Billing itself as an "all-day pan," this piece of cookware is perfect for a number of tasks, from deep-frying and baking to roasting and sautéing. While we wouldn't make huge batches of chili in this (like we would a Dutch oven), it's even great for risotto and one-pot pasta dishes. Like all of our favorite cast-iron cookware, it also can go seamlessly from the stovetop to the oven. The low profile makes it great for serving, too.

Why get a Staub?

Staub is already one of our favorite brands for cast iron. It offers many of the high-end benefits of the slightly more recognizable Le Creuset, with a few noted differences. The biggest difference: Staub enamel cookware has a dark black matte interior, which makes it easier to brown meats and vegetables.

We know: Even at 57 percent off, the $150 price tag on the Staub all-day pan is still an investment. But, like any good piece of hefty enamel cookware, it is designed to last a lifetime. The durable finish is designed to stand up to repeated use (even the everyday use you could get out of the all-day pan) without discoloring, rusting, or wearing out.
