What does French oven mean?

What is special about a French oven? Many people ask this, but luckily, we’ve got the answer just for you. Of course, a French oven doesn’t mean an actual French oven in the sense of a kitchen appliance. The term refers to a type of cast iron pots that we here at ZWILLING offer in our STAUB brand of Cocottes.

In a nutshell — here are the features of a French oven:

1. It is a round or oval cast iron pot with an enamel coating.

2. These pots usually have handles on both sides so you can hold it safely and serve the food directly from it on the dining table.

3. The lid is also typical of a French oven.

French oven vs. Dutch oven — what’s the difference?

So far, so good? When it comes to classifying French ovens, many people have also heard of another oven, the Dutch oven. They wonder if they are the same thing or at least what the differences are? Here, too, we can offer you with some good advice. Compared to the features of the French oven described above, the Dutch oven has only one difference: it is not enamel-coated.

Interesting Fact: the term French oven and Dutch oven are often used interchangeably. They are actually very similar, and most users are more familiar with the term Dutch oven. In fact, both terms can be used interchangeably in most cases.

Back to the French oven, the core topic of this product category. Interested in learning about which dishes you can cook in a French oven. Well, the term cooking is a little too narrow, because a French oven opens completely new possibilities for you and your passion for cooking. The possibilities are endless when it comes to stewing, baking or using it as a roaster.

Which dishes can I cook in a French oven?

You can put the French oven both on the stove or in the oven, which of course results in many great recipes you can prepare with this special pot. These include, for example, stews, gratins, or pot roasts. French ovens can also be used for baking bread or deep-frying. Either way, thanks to the selection of materials that our French ovens are made of, and their high-quality workmanship, you can open your options to a wide range of possibilities for your culinary art in the kitchen.
