If you’re a social media fanatic, especially when it comes to TikTok, you’ve probably heard of the brand Our Place and its cult favorite cookware pieces the Always Pan and the Perfect Pot. The thoughtfully-designed kitchen staples have garnered millions of views, and you may be wondering if they’re worth all the hype. Let’s dive deeper into why the internet is raving about these ultra aesthetic pots and pans.
What are they made of?
The Always Pan and Perfect Pot are made from non-toxic, nonstick ceramic coating made without potentially toxic materials like PFOAs, PTFEs and other PFAs. Each is incredibly lightweight with a sturdy aluminum body, modular lid that locks in when you need and pour spouts. They’re also both compatible with all cooktops. Our Place products are designed in LA and manufactured in Thailand, China and Mexico.
How are they different?
The Always Pan and Perfect Pot each provide unique kitchen features. Here’s a helpful breakdown to help guide you through your new cookware purchase:
- Meant to replace your fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula and spoon rest
- Features a stainless steel steamer basket plus an integrated spoon rest
- Available in 10 gorgeous colors
- 10 inches in diameter, 2.7 inches in depth and 2.6 quart capacity
- “Absolutely the best pan I’ve ever owned. I use it all the time and it still looks like I just took it out of the box. I love cooking with it – cooks evenly and nothing sticks – plus cleaning up is so simple! Well worth the price.”
- Meant to replace your stockpot, dutch oven, saucepot, roasting rack, steamer, strainer, braiser and spoon rest
- Features a roasting rack with a crisping effect that also doubles as a steamer plus an integrated spoon rest
- Available in seven gorgeous colors
- 10 inches in diameter, 5.5 inches in height (8.5 with lid) and 5.5 quart capacity
- “I enjoy the even heating and the easy cleanup. The design to keep the wooden handle off the stove is brilliant and very convenient. I am beginning to use this pot more and more. I’ve had it in my kitchen a couple of weeks thus far.”
Together, the duo is meant to replace an entire 16-piece cookware set. Both ship to you for free and come with a 30-day trial. If you aren’t happy with your purchase, you can return to the company for free.
How do I know which piece is right for me?
It comes down to what lifestyle you live and how many people are in your household. For example, the Perfect Pot holds a lot more than the Always Pan and is more suitable for family dinners and big gathers. The Always Pan is smaller and may be ideal for someone who lives alone or with their significant other.
Each has different functions, as we mentioned above, so think about your eating habits, go-to meal choices and how you usually prepare your food. If you’re still unsure, check out the FAQs or shoot Our Place an email – they’re always happy to chat.
Will these be too complicated for someone who’s not that great at cooking?
Nope! The Always Pan and Perfect Pot were created to aid you in all aspects of your culinary adventures, no matter how seasoned of a chef you are (see what I did there?). Our Place prides itself on creating high-quality beautiful pieces that are approachable and easy to use so everyone can get involved.
