Home cooks and pro chefs can agree that Staub makes some of the best-looking cookware on the market, but that’s not the only reason we keep coming back for more. We’re also in it for the high-quality craftsmanship and lasts-for-generations durability. While best-known for its iconic customer faves, like that enameled Dutch oven, Staub’s collection is surprisingly diverse. The oval baking dish is a sleeper hit, and the grill pan is a must for steak night.

A Staub piece is a smart investment no matter how you slice it, but their rare sales are an especially good time to fill your online shopping cart. Staub’s sales are priced for visual imperfections, but don’t let the word “imperfect” give you pause — each piece is thoroughly inspected for quality. (In fact, many buyers report not being able to ID any paint drips, chips, or scratches at all.)

The Memorial Day Sale only lasts through May 30, so you don’t have much time to waste. Not sure where to start? Here are 10 items we’ve got our eyes on. But don’t wait too long to hit “add to cart” — we have a feeling we’re not the only ones browsing.

An oval cocotte — especially one as roomy as Staub’s 8.5-qt. model — is highly useful for home cooks. It’s a must for slow-cooking techniques like braising, and it's right-shaped for whole chickens and larger cuts of meat. Customer reviews praise this piece for its usefulness, and reiterate the benefit of buying imperfect pieces. “When they are on sale, grab them. Most of my pieces were clearance items and the imperfections are so minor you never really know why they were deemed imperfect,” explained one commenter who has collected over 30 Staub items.

Whether you’re using this sturdy pan on the outdoor grill or firing it up on your stovetop, it’s ideal for summer-inspired meals. The enameled surface means no more sticking, and even better, makes for easy cleanup. And those deep grooves? We bet you've never seen picture-perfect grill marks like these. “Works equally well for grilling meats & poultry as well as vegetables. Meaty fish such as salmon and swordfish are terrific in this grill pan,” raved one five-star review.

While a 4-qt. cocotte isn’t big enough to handle chili night for your entire extended family, let’s be honest: How often are you in that situation? We love this little multipurpose pot for its space-saving efficiency and excellent heat retention. It’s currently on sale for 44 percent off and selling out fast — as of press time, there are only two colorways left!

Seasoned home cooks know the importance of “not crowding the pan.” Having ample space for airflow when searing, sautéeing, and roasting makes for beautifully golden-brown veggies and meat. This extra-large, handsome piece is perfect for large-format cooking — especially searing — thanks to its high-quality cast iron construction. It’s a real workhorse that can handle temperatures up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit (!!), and it works on all cooking surfaces, including induction.

Alert: This fan-favorite piece of cookware is currently on sale for over 50 percent off! Of course, the durable cast iron makes it a good buy, but what really sets it apart from other Dutch ovens is the innovative lid design. Thanks to this creative and unique construction, food remains wonderfully moist and irresistibly fragrant. There are still a handful of sought-after colorways available, but probably not for long.

The fact that this pan is still available in one of Staub’s most popular colors — a dreamy Grenadine — is a huge score. Like all of Staub’s grill-friendly accessories, this one is made to be durable, with a matte enamel cooking surface that’s compatible with all cooktops. “Staub is a dream come true if you love cast iron, but don't like all the fuss that goes with it,” commented one customer, adding, “And it’s gorgeous!”

This pan does just about every cooking task you could think of. With a removable metal tray, it can go from steaming to sautéeing in an instant. The wide, sloping sides make it ideal for stirring (time to schedule risotto night!), and its rough interior texture encourages deep and even browning. A quick browse of customer reviews reveals its varied uses, including deep frying and tempura. It also makes a great wedding gift or housewarming present.

The problem with most frying pans is that they’re too shallow. Short sides result in oil splatters, which means you'll have to spend unnecessary time scrubbing the stovetop. Well, Staub has solved this issue with its extra-deep skillet. Unlike bare cast iron fry pans, Staub’s version requires no seasoning — it’s ready to rock right out of the box. The double pour spouts are so useful, you’ll wonder why other pans only have one.

A sauté pan becomes truly useful when you can use it to steam and braise, too. This spacious piece comes with a domed glass lid for optimal heat distribution and circulation. Like all of Staub’s cookware, this is beautiful enough to transition from stovetop to table. But perhaps no one can explain the allure of the brand like this enthusiastic reviewer: “I love the way Staub performs; it is virtually non-stick, everything tastes better and cooks beautifully; makes me feel like Julia Child or maybe that's the wine. But no doubt it has made me a better cook.”

It’s the little details that turn cookware into high-performance must-haves. For this braiser, it's the unique handle design, which is made for comfort and ease of use when wearing oven mitts. Love that! Of course, you’ve also got to appreciate the domed lid and especially wide base for max surface area. This is a piece that doesn’t often see discounts, so if you’ve been considering a braiser, now is the time.
