Over the past couple of months, Staub's high-quality cast iron cookware has been flying off virtual shelves. In fact, so many shoppers bought the brand's versatile Dutch ovens during the holidays, they repeatedly sold out on Amazon. And today, Staub has unveiled a new shade we're expecting will inspire a similar shopping frenzy: Sage.
Inspired by the fragrant herb, Sage is a restorative and calming green that feels perfect for the new season. It joins an impressive list of vibrant hues from Staub, including lively Cherry Red, moody Graphite, and a soothing blue-green La Mer. All are made using the company's unique enamel coating of glass powder and mineral pigments that are applied up to three times to achieve a brilliant, glossy sheen.
"We were exploring our glazing technique at our color lab at our factory in France, and this fresh vibrant color was a happy outcome," Staub chief marketing officer Joanna Rosenberg told Food & Wine.

While the Sage exterior makes a gorgeous kitchen statement, Staub's enameled cast iron inside is worth noting, too. Unlike traditional cast iron that builds up a nonstick seasoning over time, enameled pots and pans are stick-resistant out of the box. Plus, they won't react with acidic ingredients like tomatoes or vinegar-y sauces.
You can shop five pieces in the new color exclusively at Williams Sonoma, including those super popular Dutch ovens. (Yes, spring is on its way, but there's still plenty of time to make wintery dishes, like hearty beef stews and bubbly baked pastas.) If you've had your eye on a new addition to your existing cookware collection, now's the time to secure a new kitchen essential while the color is still in stock.
