The 10 Best Cocottes
This wiki has been updated 14 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Similar to Dutch and French ovens, cocottes are covered, heatproof dishes ideal for baking and braising, and some can also be used on the stovetop. Our list includes a wide range of sizes, from large models that will hold several quarts to tiny ones designed for individual servings, and they come in many different colors and materials to match any decor and cooking style. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Understanding that users would have different tasks in mind for their cocottes, we made a point to include options of varying capacities, from the tiny Set of 4 by Le Creuset to larger models capable of cooking entire meals. The Staub Round earned the top spot for its high-quality construction and wide range of available sizes. When choosing the best cocotte to suit your needs, however, note that not all of them are designed for use on the stovetop — ceramic and stoneware models are for oven use only.
