For today’s cookware consumers, two deciding factors when shopping are imperative. Kitchen essentials need to perform more than one function, and it should be aesthetically pleasing so that it’s more like a work of art on your counter or stovetop.

One of the many new direct-to-consumer cookware brands that checks both of these boxes is Our Place that now has a cult-following thanks to its massively popular Always Pan.

And just in time for Labor Day, the woman-owned brand is releasing a stunning new lavender colorway that will surely make you want to add the best-selling piece to your kitchen arsenal ASAP. And, now, while supplies last, shoppers can get a free gift from two options (valued at $50) when the code “BDAYGIFT’ is applied at checkout.

With its 8-in-1 functionality and one-of-a-kind design, it’s no surprise that this pan has been in high demand since its launch. In fact, the best-selling pan has been sold out for months and had a 30,000-person waitlist before finally being restocked in August 2020.

Before getting to the pan’s impressive specs, it’s worth learning about the brand’s honest and refreshing foundation. Our Place was launched by former Malala Fund co-founder Shiza Shahid and 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 even easier for folks to get cooking again.

In addition to the super chic pan — which now comes in five 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.

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 pan’s five color options are char, spice, steam, sage (launched on Earth Day 2020) and lavender, which most recently launched.

Shoppers also have been singing the Always Pan’s praises, with several calling it the “perfect” cooking essential.

“This is my new favorite pan,” one shopper gushed. “It is the perfect width and depth, and I really love how lightweight it is. 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!”

Plus, with the purchase of any Always Pan, shoppers will receive a complimentary Three’s A Cloud Platter or Top the Scales Platter, which is valued at $50 each.

To secure this deal, customers should add both items (the Always Pan and the platter of their preference) to their cart and enter the code BDAYGIFT. The offer will remain active until supplies last.
