Indoor grilling is great, but the results are often undesirable—it tends to fill the kitchen with smoke and meat can become tough and dry. Enter the Staub Steam Grill. Our go-to pan for quick, healthy meals, the versatile Steam Grill comes with a tight-fitting lid that locks in flavor and moisture and prevents excessive smoking. Simply sear food, add wine, broth or your favorite cooking liquid, then cover and steam for moist, delicious results every time.

Great for fish, veggies, pan-grilled steaks and more, this innovative grill makes it easy to achieve perfect grill marks, then add liquid, cover and finish foods with the gentle, even heat of steam. Steam grilling reduces cooking time by up to 30%, so food stays moist and tender. And because you’re using liquid that deglazes the pan while you cook, steam grilling also makes clean up a breeze.

Long a treasured staple in home kitchens as well as professional restaurants, Staub’s enameled cast iron doesn’t require seasoning and cleans up easily in the dishwasher.

Not that great a value for the money or space in my kitchen
Very hard to clean. It doesn't really seem as necessary as I thought to cook chicken indoors. It still gets too hard on the outside to get it cooked all the way on the inside. It was good for steak and prawns- a recipe on the website- but I hardly ever cook a meal like that at home.

I love Staub products and was excited to get this steam grill. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out to be what I'd hoped. Regardless of treatment, temperature and the non-stick surface, everything sticks to it. It's so frustrating, I've stopped using it.

Staub does it Best
I go for this pan at least once a week. Love the fact that I can sear meats indoors and slap a lid on to keep the mess contained and then just add a little water to steam cook it and it’s done. As always easy cleanup with Staub too. The only cast iron pans I own.

Staub Steam Grill
Although this is a healthy way to cook, I have been disappointed as to how hard it is to clean. It cooks evenly and the moisture containment is excellent but keeping this $200+ pan clean is a challenge.

I love this pot!
I grill everything on this pot! If you wash it while the pot is still warm, it’s a breeze to clean. Otherwise, pour water on the grill, put the lid on and get it steaming and it will clean effortlessly!

Wonderful Grill!!!
We use this pan at least once a week and it is wonderful for a stove top grill. We have grilled everything from fish, thick pork chops, steaks, chicken, portabella mushrooms, burgers, lamb chops, etc.
The grill cleans up easily. Everything we have cooked on it has been delicious.

I own two!
I have this and the smaller size. If it's too cold to grill, I use these. Great Staub quality, gorgeous pan, as easy to clean as any other cast iron... can't go wrong.

Another kitchen staple
Definitely recommend this for the indoor grill option. I do not have access to an outdoor grill and enjoy my steak now and then. This is an excellent way to cook your steak with those perfect grill marks while finishing it off for that light pink in the oven on broil. Even better, it's perfect for veggies when you add the lid and cook on low heat for those grill marks. It's a weekly use in my kitchen. Great taste and easy cleanup.

I love this healthy Grill! I cook with it most of the time! I love grilling fish, meat and veggies then put some water afterwards to make it really healthy.

Great pan and easy to clean
I have had this grill pan for over 2 years and I use it to season pork loins, steam chicken, steak with no oil, shrimp, scallops and salmon. The key to get the grill marks is to have a well seasoned pan very hot. Smoking hot!

After cooking, I add hot water in the pan and cover. I leave it on the stove with no flame,covered for 20 minutes.Then rinse in the sink and get busy with a chopstick!

Karen C on Nov 5, 2018
We just purchased this but it was the floor model and had no information in regards to how to use it or how to clean it. We just made salmon in it and while it was tasty, we had difficulty cleaning the pan. My husband brushed the fish with a miso butter but didn't add any liquid to the pan, hence the fish was "smoked" rather than steamed. It tasted wonderful but the clean up was not effortless. Any advice?
Maura S on Dec 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Once the pan is cool, try filling it with hot water and a couple of pumps of dish liquid. Since it is enameled cast iron, you can use soap, but I would avoid abrasive sponges.
How does the pure grill differ from the stub steam grill? Besides the pan size and the steam grill has a lid
A shopper on May 1, 2015
Staub Steam Grill, 12
Staub Steam Grill, 12"
Staub Pure Grill, 10.5
Staub Pure Grill, 10.5"
BEST ANSWER: Those are the only differences.
why I cannot do this with other cast iron grill pans with tight lid and need staub grilling pan?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In theory, you can do it with any grill pan that has a lid. What makes the Staub pan ideal is that it's made specifically for this purpose. It has a tight fitting lid & high grill ridges to promote steaming, but still give you grill marks.
what is the weight of this pan?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This grill weighs about 12lbs.
Does this Staub steam grill also work well just as a grill pan without adding liquid or would the ridges be too high placing the food too far up from the heat source? I use a gas stove. I like the idea of equipment being able to do double duty.
Sandra B on Jan 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be used as a standard grill pan as well.
How is this better than a grill pan? And will this actually taste like outdoor grilled food or just a grill pan?
Lindsay A on Jan 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's not necessarily better than a grill pan, as it itself is a grill pan. Features that make this particular grill pan unique are the tight fitting lid that comes with it, as well as the raised grill ridges. They make it so that a liquid of your choice can be poured in the bottom to create steam that will keep your food moist & impart flavor into it.
The grill ridges will help add a nice char flavor to your food, but it won't get that good, smoky flavor like you would in a grill.
Can wood chips be used to flavor meats in this grill?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. It is not a very deep pan and not much different than any other grill pan. While I have many Staub pans (which I truly enjoy using) I don't find this to be much different from any other good grill pan. I am intrigued by your question, however, as I have been researching smoking. I might be tempted to try your idea on a lower end pan to see if it works. I have some old lodge grill pans and I might give it a try. No harm no foul with with an old, inexpensive pan.
Can I cook on electric stove?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have electric (induction) cooktop and electric stove. works perfectly. I think you can heat in oven to 450 degrees, but i would need to recheck.
I'm torn between getting the 10.5" and the 12" pan. Don't want both, so would you recommend getting the larger pan with the lid because of the option of the lid and it's basically 2 pans in one with the steaming effect? Does anybody have both and which one do they use the most?
Roxann S on Jun 21, 2015
Staub Steam Grill, 12
Staub Steam Grill, 12"
Staub Pure Grill, 10.5
Staub Pure Grill, 10.5"
BEST ANSWER: In all honesty, I would get the 12" steam grill! Both pans are the same, can both go into the oven up to 500 degrees and both can go onto the cooktop. The 12" is bigger than the 10" and you cannot make a pan grow. And the lid give you options. If money is not the option, I would go with the 12" pan. Love that you can put the gill pan in the oven and get it searing hot and then sear cook a steak and get the outside cooked and leave the center warm and not soooo cooked if you dont want. Enjoy!!
what is the difference between the grill pan with press and the steam grill with lid?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2016
Staub Steam Grill, 12
Staub Steam Grill, 12"
Staub Grill Pan with Press
Staub Grill Pan with Press
BEST ANSWER: The grill press isn't a lid. It doesn't fit like a lid, it's just meant to press and it won't hold steam in the way a lid would. In the picture it looks like the press fits the top of the pan, but it's actually the size of the bottom of the pan and just sits on top of the food in the pan to flatten it/hold it in place. The steam grill with the lid is a grill pan with a traditional lid that holds steam.
How much smoke is created?
We need something that will not smoke. Our apartment fan recirculates so meat and fish are a problem creating too much smoke. Any info on how much smoke this produces?
martha l on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is a steam grill so as long as there is liquid in bottom of pan I have not had any smoke issues. When I use it as a grill then keep a splatter guard or cover on to minimize grease getting on range top
I have a 2 Staub grill pans already. Could'nt I just put a piece of heavy duty foil over the top and get the same steam effects? Hubby says I have too many wonderful pans already and no space left to store everything, I can't disagree!
Sharon H on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: with foil wouldn't you have a hard time monitoring the cooking? the lid holds in moisture and heat so food cooks much more quickly - foil wouldn't create a true seal. also, the lid is glass so you can see your food as it cooks, and you can make sure not to over-do it. you can't do that with foil.
Does this work on an induction cooktop?
Cathleen on Jan 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these are suitable for an induction cooktop. Just be careful about moving this heavy pan around on this or a ceramic cooktop to avoid scratching the cooktop surface.
Can it be used on an outdoor gas or charcoal bbq grill?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. My perspective is that this is a specialty pan, for indoor grilling on a stovetop to cook healthy, moist, meals while minimizing smoke creation in the home. (It says it is ovenproof to 500°.) I do not know why anyone would risk using this beautiful cookware on an outdoor grill. So many of the questions in this section can be answered by reading the product description right here on this website. There's even a video!
Can I put this in the dishwasher?
A shopper on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It says you can,however I never put my Staub grill pan the dishwasher because the pan gets a nice nonstick seasoning on the surface after a few uses and the harsh dishwasher/dw det would remove it. This is my favorite pan for meats and vegetables. I have retired my LeCruest grill pans because this staub is easier to clean and love the lid!
Can I use metal utensils with this pan, or do I need plastic/silicone?
Shawn M on Feb 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can use metal. This grill is a rock. I love it!
Can it be used with broiler oven settiing? Will it take the high heat?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: you absolutely can! staub cast iron is incredibly durable and can take extremely high heat
is this price related to your sale ending in 10 hours ?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have purchased a Staub Steam Grill, and yes it is on sale. I am not sure how long you have until the sale is over. This is a great product.
My recent catalog from Sur la table "The Art & Soul of Cooking", says on page 51 to go to for the steam-grilled stuffed port loin recipe. I am unable to find it. The picture of pork loin, brussel sprouts and squash looks wonderful. Could I have the recipe?
Thank You
A shopper on Oct 26, 2015
When will the cookware sale end?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It will remain on sale at least until the end of our current catalog, which is late October.
will it produce smoke?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I haven't set off my smoke detectors! I find it depends on what I'm cooking. My favorites so far are vegetables and unless I leave them too long, they do not tend to produce smoke. Meats, especially with higher fat content do smoke some, but I have a good extractor fan that keeps it manageable. I am also finding that if I keep the lid on throughout the process things stay moist, and cook faster, but still get a nice char. It takes some experimenting, but so far I'm having fun and really liking the results.
Is this easy to clean?
Linda Shek on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is easy to clean. I soak it for 20 min or so and then use a chopstick to clean the grooves.
Can you use this on a cooktop stove?
Cindy G on Jan 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a gas cook top and this grill works wonderfully. I grill various kinds of veggies and meats. It can get really hot if you desire that. It makes beautiful grill marks and adds that nice grilled taste to your foods. I love the results!
Does it require a certain pot?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. I bought this grill pan because of it's lid (few come with a lid). I used it last night for breaded chicken breasts (which I pounded to an even thickness). Applied a bit of oil to the cooking surface, heated the grill to med. hot; coated chicken, and put the chicken in. I seared both sides (nice, golden brown grill marks), then added about 2 tbsp water and put the lid on. Chicken continued to cook and when we ate it, it was cooked completely and still moist. Great pan! (To clean - since some of bread crumbs stuck, I added hot water to the cooled pan, heated it to boiling, turned the stove off, and - this morning - simply rinsed, applied more hot soapy water and wiped it clean.)
