Major news: The one item that has made all the difference for me in the kitchen is finally back in stock.
That's right, the Our Place Always Pan, which has sold out a whopping five times this year, is back in all colors right now. When I say I can't imagine my kitchen without it, I mean it. To start, it's just such an attractive piece of cookware. Especially if you're lacking storage space in your kitchen, this pan is definitely cute enough to leave out on the stove. It comes in four colors — orangey-pink "Spice,", taupe-hued "Steam," dark grey "Char," and forest green "Sage" — and features a sleek ceramic finish and modular lid.
But, looks aside, this pan features optimal function. The 10-inch, 2.6-quart cast-aluminum sauté pan is designed to "replace the need for eight other pieces of cookware" — including a skillet, sauté pan, colander, steamer basket, and more. It comes with a detachable wooden spatula, plus a built-in spoon rest when not in use. It's incredibly lightweight, made with a non-toxic and supremely nonstick coating, and — drumroll, please — is dishwasher-safe!
Even if you don't have a dishwasher or don't want to use yours, I can attest to the fact that it's so easy to handwash. Even if you leave the used pan sitting for a few hours (which I may have done once or twice ...), the nonstick coating makes it a breeze to wipe clean. Our Place even includes a special sponge with each purchase that is designed for the material of the pan.
For those who are environmentally conscious, Our Place also uses 100% recyclable and biodegradable packaging for shipping, so there's very minimal waste on every delivery.
Whether you're starting to build a new kitchen from scratch or, like me, are just looking for more of a streamlined cooking process, this pan is a must-have. Just don't wait too long; this is expected to sell out quickly.
