Cyber Monday may be over, but some deals still linger, like this savings of almost £100 on the best-rated cast-iron pot on Amazon (41 positive reviews said it was better than Le Creuset). It’s now £149 (down from £239).

When we researched the best cast-iron pots on Amazon, with 87 percent five-star reviews, the Cocotte cast-iron round pot by Staub came out on top. Fifty-nine customers said that the quality of the pot was excellent, with a further 27 saying their stews have never tasted better than in this pot. A home cook who said they own “a sizable collection” of both Le Creuset and Staub, said the Staub always won out for its design features and aesthetic.

Twenty-two reviewers were impressed at how easy it was to clean, with only the edges of the lid proving difficult, though even they relented after a long soak, according to one reviewer. Another notable feature: the self-basting spikes (or “picots”) on the roof of the lid, which gather moisture from steam and drip back into the food, preventing it from getting dry. Nineteen reviewers remarked how effective this was at preserving flavour in their meals.
