My Favorite Kitchenware Brand Just Got Even Better

I used to think I had a small kitchen…but then I moved from a beautiful house in Michigan to a humble little rental in San Diego, and now I’m realizing what a small kitchen really is.

But whether I have room to spread out, utilize multiple cupboards and a big gorgeous island, or have to learn how to cook compactly with a true minimalist storage situation, Our Place has always, without fail, provided the perfect kitchen essentials for our space.

I didn’t think Our Place could get any better (or more beloved in our kitchen), that is until it decided to announce the Always Pan 2.0.

In a nutshell, the pan is what kitchen dreams are made of.

The Our Place Always Pan 2.0 Is Just What I Needed: Oven-Safe, Nonstick + So Pretty

I didn’t think Our Place could get any better (or more beloved in our kitchen), that is until it decided to announce the Always Pan 2.0.
The Our Place Always Pan 2.0 is what kitchen dreams are made of.

Our Place took its amazing (near magic) Always Pan and upgraded it with even more bells and whistles: It’s now oven-safe (!), can replace 10 pieces of cookware in your home, and has an advanced nonstick ceramic coating that lasts 50% longer. It’s made with 100% post-consumer recycled aluminum (yesss) and is made without PTFEs, PFOAs, lead, cadmium and other potentially toxic materials found in the majority of nonstick pans. 

Uh, I can’t even think of asking for anything more from my cookware.

My *All-Time* Favorite Cookware, Tableware & Kitchen Accessories From Our Place

I scooped up my first Always Pan in 2020, and both my husband (who actually does most of the cooking for us) and I were amazed at how beautifully it replaced our old multi-pan set (that we could never quite figure out how to store well).

ONE pan could cook our go-to pasta dishes, whip up my husband’s Persian family recipes (including my favorite, tahdig, IYKYK), and steam our fave store-bought frozen dumplings (for those lazy nights).

Not to mention, the Always Pan 2.0 is stunning to look at; I love serving directly from the pan purely for aesthetic reasons.

I got both my mom and best friend hooked on the original Always Pan, and both of them store their pans right out on the stovetop to complement their kitchen decor.

More Game-Changing Kitchenware From Our Place You Need To Try

When we made our big cross-country move and downsized to our cutie little rental space, Our Place bowls, plates and drinking glasses were pretty much the only dishes to make the journey with us (the other items being utensils and wineglasses, because Our Place doesn’t make those…hint, hint to the powers-at-be).

We recently upgraded our dishware from the Our Place Main Plates and Side Bowls to the gorgeous Midi Bowls and Midi Plates. We are over the moon about them. The shape and color are exactly what we wanted for our new place, and the size is truly “just right” for all of our meals.

And that husband of mine who I mentioned does most of the cooking in our home? He’s good — I mean really, really good — at cooking. Naturally, he’s picky with utensils and gadgets and gizmos he uses in the kitchen. When my mom gifted me the Our Place cutting board and chef’s knife for Christmas (as well as the genius and minimalist one-lid-fits-all stacking storage containers we’re OBSESSED with — thank you, Mom), I loudly proclaimed, “THESE ARE MINE.” 

That ownership lasted about 2 seconds, because when my beautiful-but-stubborn man discovered how truly great these were, he literally threw our older cutting board into a donation box (you don’t think a cutting board can be better than others until you’ve tried this nonslip board) and placed the knife on his magnetic tool display above the oven.

Just when I thought the Always Pan couldn't get better, Our Place tops it w/ the 2.0 version: oven-safe, ceramic-coated & *stunning*. Um, yes, please.

Turns out, you can ask for more from a cookware brand. Not only is Our Place’s catalog of kitchen-changing products made from recycled and sustainable materials, but they come packaged in biodegradable and compostable materials designed to minimize waste.

Our Place is immigrant- and woman-of-color-owned, and more than 80% of products are sourced from a woman-owned factory. They have done the work in creating a truly beautiful company that not only solves problems in our home and daily life, but is also rooted in representation and inclusion. Make sure to check out the Traditionware™ collection, designed to celebrate, honor and tell the stories of specific tradition; it’s my personal fave section of their website!
