Many subscribe to the age-old adage that there is “nothing new under the sun” — and when it comes to cookware basics, that may be the case. However, when these staple pieces are reinvented, it can be magical.
Shoppers and cooking enthusiasts believe that the Always Pan by Our Place perfectly matches this philosophy, largely due to its 8-in-1 functionality and form factor. Additionally, the best-selling pan, which has been sold out for months, had a 30,000-person waitlist and is finally back in stock!
Shop: Always Pan By Our Place, $145
Before getting into the cookware brand’s raved-about hero product, here’s a brief background on the fairly new company that made it. Launched by former Malala Fund co-founder Shiza Shahid, Our Place was designed to inspire families of all cultures and backgrounds to come together over home-cooked meals.
Said to “truly nail their product and messaging,” Our Place launched the Always Pan, which is arguably considered the brand’s leading product. Described to perform the tasks of at least eight traditional cookware pieces, this particular item was created to make it easy for folks to get cooking again.
In addition to the super chic pan — which comes in four colors — the product includes a custom-fit steamer basket and a wooden spoon/nesting spatula that neatly tucks into a space carved into the handle. Adding to its luxe and thoughtful design, the spatula is finished with natural mineral oil. Take a look at all of its functions and design charm below:
The Always Pan is also dishwasher safe, compatible with all cooktops, Teflon, PFAS and PTFE-free and features a heavy-gauge cast aluminum core that guarantees quick and even heat distribution. The premium cookware piece also comes in four color options: char, spice, steam and sage, launched on Earth Day 2020.
Shoppers also have been singing the Always Pan’s praises, with several calling it the “perfect” cooking essential.
“This is my new favorite pan. It is the perfect width and depth, and I really love how lightweight it is,” one shopper gushed. “So far it has only needed a quick wash with the sponge that was kindly provided and nothing has stuck to it. It also looks great on my stove!”
Validating the company’s claim that the pan is fully multi-functional, another shopper wrote, “I love this pan, it is perfect. I threw away all of my other pans. You can do basically everything in this pan, so easy to clean and I love the little spatula that comes with [it]. Buying one as a gift for my brother!”
