The holidays have arrived early this year — namely, in the form of this can’t-miss sale on the beloved Always Pan. The mighty pan from one of our favorite direct-to-consumer brands Our Place is an internet sensation, with past waiting lists having up to 50,000 eager home cooks! While they regularly treat fans with new color releases like the recently announced Blanch and Sage, as well as the always sold-out Lavender, they’re giving us something to really jump up and down about this holiday season. As an early Black Friday present to us all, the Always Pan is on sale for just $99 starting today — aka the lowest price we’ve seen it all year!
If you’re not familiar with the Always Pan and all that it can do, allow us to explain why we think it’s well worth the hype. This single pan does the job of eight pieces of cookware: a fry pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, sauté pan, nonstick pan, spatula, and spoon rest. Talk about a workhorse! This means the 2.6-quart pan can function as an everyday skillet for frying eggs, a sauce pan for simmering sauces and gravies (due to its sloped sides), and a steamer for veggies or fish thanks to the handy insert. And it comes in the dreamiest colors! While we love the new colorways, you also can’t beat the original hues like Spice and Steam.
Not only is this pan ultra-versatile, but it’s also easy to clean. Kitchn contributor Patty spent six months testing the original pan while cooking for her family and noted its smooth surface in particular. “The Always Pan plays the part of a nonstick skillet supremely well. In the six months that I’ve been using the pan, I’ve never had a single scrambled egg stick, and dinner slides cleanly out — always,” she said.
While we’ve seen sales in the past for Prime Day and Labor Day, we can’t recall seeing it as low as this early Black Friday deal. It would be the ideal gift for a beginner cook, someone with a small kitchen who’s short on storage space, or even a longtime home cook who wants to shake up their routine. And if you’re looking for more great gift ideas from Our Place, their new Perfect Pot is also a solid all-in-one option that can replace several cookware pieces, including your Dutch oven and stockpot. Basically, what we’re saying is that doing all your holiday shopping at Our Place could be the best idea you’ve had all year — especially with this amazing price!
