What could be better?
So why am I talking about these pieces yet again today?
Because when I’m straight up obsessed, I keep talking about things. Just ask my friends and family! Haha! If I love something, I feel like it’s my personal responsibility to share the love. And here’s the kicker, I want others to love what I love. And then I want us to talk about how much we love something together. #itswhoiam
And listen, if something I love is ON SALE, I’m going to shout it from the rooftops. And almost everything is ON SALE. #whichiswhyimshouting
Let’s Talk About My New Cast Iron Always Pan
The Cast Iron Always Pan is the newest addition to my cooking arsenal. This is the first time I’m sharing about it on the blog, and I’ve been cooking up a storm with it!
Regularly $155, on sale for $116
Here’s what you need to know about the Cast Iron Always Pan:
This pan is EVERYTHING I love about the original nonstick Always Pan, BUT IT IS NOW AVAILABLE IN AN ENAMEL CAST IRON! We’re talking heirloom-quality and super-easy-to-care-for, so get excited!
In fact, it doesn’t require all of the care and upkeep that you are used to with typical cast iron, AND IT LOOKS SO GOOD! It comes in several of Our Place’s signature colors, but I actually went with the “char” for myself, even though I’ve gone for bolder colors in all of my other pieces. I think it’s fun to mix and match.
And check it out, this cast iron pan comes with a lid!
The Cast Iron Always Pan is compatible with all types of stovetops (even induction!), it creates even heating with no hot spots, and it boasts maximum heat retention. With the lid, the pan is oven safe up to 425°F. Without the lid, it’s oven and broiler safe up to 500°F! WOW!
CAST IRON RECIPE #1
Actually, the first “recipe” we made with the Cast Iron Always Pan wasn’t really a recipe.
I had purchased steaks at the grocery store that morning, and when the pan arrived that afternoon, there was no question what we were going to have for dinner that night.
And we’ve now found our favorite way to cook a filet! Seared at a high heat in the Cast Iron Always Pan with just a dry rub (a mixture of kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, lemon pepper, and some garlic powder), and then cooked to a perfect medium rare. The cast iron will allow you to create a perfect crust on the steak, and I’m telling you, it will take your filet to the next level.
We cut some slices very thinly for steak sandwiches the next day, because CARTER loves a steak sandwich.
And we enjoyed filets, mash potatoes, and sauteed veggies that night.
CAST IRON RECIPE #2
Do you love Brussels Sprouts? If so, you’re going to love this next recipe and it cooked up PERFECTLY in the Cast Iron Always Pan.
Sauté Brussel Sprots and butternut squash in olive oil until tender. Add spicy chicken sausage medallions and cook those through as well. After everything is at the appropriate temperature and you’ve managed to develop a bit of a char on the veggies and the sausage (thanks to the cast iron pan!), it’s time to add all of the yummy extras! Sprinkle dried cranberries, pecans, and some goat cheese on top. For the final step, drizzle with either hot honey or a balsamic glaze.
And not only is it delicious, look how gorgeous it is!
I’m the only person in my family who will eat this dish, but the moment I got the idea from a recipe I had seen on Pinterest, I knew it was perfect for my new cast iron pan. And boy was I a happy camper when eating it.
CAST IRON RECIPE #3
Because I live with 2 boys that LIVE for steak, our 3rd recipe was steak. Yep, steak again.
This time I seared baby yellow potatoes and filet steak bites with butter, garlic, rosemary, and thyme.
It was a hit. We love cooking with our Cast Iron Always Pan.
I mean, YUM.
And no surprise here, but Buddy wanted in on this recipe too.
AND SINCE ALMOST EVERYTHING IS ON SALE, LET’S TALK A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE…
Let’s Talk About The Our Place Always Pan
THIS PAN IS A REAL BEAUTY. In fact, she’s so pretty that after each use I wash her and then put her right back on the stove.
And get excited, BECAUSE SHE IS ON SALE!
Regularly $145, on sale for $108
There are 9 colors in stock right now, so there is something for everybody!
The pan comes with a lid, a metal steamer basket/colander, 2 easy pour spouts, a stay cool handle, and a wooden spatula (and built in notch and rest for that spatula). It’s CRAZY how much I’ve grown to love the built-in spoon rest. It’s just so dang convenient! There’s also a special sponge included that makes clean up so easy. Is it weird to love a sponge? #askingforafriend
You can braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, boil, serve, and store with the Always Pan. And listen, I’m not the only person who is crazy for this pan. Oprah, The New York Times, and Food & Wine magazine all love it.
Let’s Talk About The Our Place Perfect Pot
The Perfect Pot is just as pretty as the Always Pan, and right now there are 9 (in stock) colors to choose from. This is the “blue salt”. And you guessed it, it’s ON SALE too!
Regularly $165, on sale for $123
The Perfect Pot includes the following:
- 5.5 QT Cast Aluminum Pot (Big enough to cook for a crowd! Holds 22 cups!)
- Cast Aluminum Straining Lid
- Beechwood Spoon with Patent-Pending Notch System
- Cast Aluminum Nonstick Roasting Rack (that doubles as a steamer)
It’s a dutch oven, stock pot, saucepan, roasting rack, steamer, colander and braiser ALL IN ONE. WOW! And I can’t emphasize enough how much I love the wooden spoon it comes with. It also has a perfectly-sized pour spout which always comes in super handy. When I make pasta in the pot, I am able to drain the water before adding the sauce to the pan. When I make taco meat in the pot, I am able to drain the grease with ease.
I love my Perfect Pot. I’ve cooked the following in my pot: a countless number of soups, tons of different pastas, beans, rice, quinoa, a roast, a roast chicken, and large amounts of taco meat (when I was cooking for a crowd and the skillet wasn’t big enough). It’s awesome. Plus, it just looks great! I keep both my pot and my pan on the stove at all times!
If you are interested in grabbing the bundle, it’s ON SALE too. And they have a great feature on the site to help you decide which colors you want to go with if you are grabbing both. When you choose the color for each piece, it changes the color for you so you can see what they look like together! Well done, Our Place! This is a fun feature!
Let’s Talk About The Ovenware Set
And don’t forget about the new Ovenware Set! I introduced this set to you a couple of months ago, BUT NOW IT’S ON SALE!
Regularly $195, on sale for $146
The-5 piece Ovenware Set includes the following:
- 1 5QT Cast Aluminum Roasting Pan (The Oven Pan)
- 3 Ceramic Bakers – Main Bake, Side Bake & Tiny Bake
- 1 Silicone Baking Mat (not pictured, but seen later in the post)
The set is easy to use, beautifully designed, and will change the way you cook in your oven.
And I hate to play favorites, but the Oven Pan has quickly become my ride or die piece from the set. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Isn’t it GORGEOUS? And I love that the Oven Pan performs so well in the oven AND serves my food so beautifully!
Click HERE to learn everything you need to know about the Oven Pan and to get the recipe for this oven baked shrimp boil.
This was the first meal I made in my Oven Pan, and I became an instant fan.
And almost as important as the cookware, I love that Our Place believes that sharing a home-cooked meal is foundational to connection. We believe that at our house too. We sit down together almost every single night for dinner as a family. We make it a priority. We feel like it’s important to sit down, pray, talk about our days, and just enjoy each other’s company. We have had some of our best times around the dinner table.
I also baked a coffee cake in the Main Bake (the biggest of the ceramic bakers), and we love frying eggs on The Oven Pan. The fact that the Oven Pan functions as both a sheet pan AND a griddle is mind-blowing!
Here we cooked hot crispy chicken and roasted broccoli, all on the Oven Pan! And I used the Perfect Pot to boil potatoes for mashed potatoes. As you can see, I’m loyal to the brand. Every single one of the pieces I own is truly incredible.
But I’m telling you, this pan is worth the price of the set alone! It’s incredible.
RECIPE ROUND UP
Since almost everything is on sale, I want to inspire you with recipes, so I’m going to do a recipe round up from past posts.
Since the Perfect Pot is oven safe up to 425 degrees, it truly is the perfect pot to both brown a roast on the stove and then finish cooking it in the oven. Click HERE for the roast recipe and the original post.
I will tell you this, the house smelled HEAVENLY.
Click HERE for the roast chicken and veggie recipe. Look how pretty this perfectly roasted chicken is! And the veggies were perfectly roasted and tender as well.
And remember, almost everything is ON SALE right now including the plates, bowls, and glasses seen here!
SKILLET GREEN BEANS
Click HERE for skillet green beans. They are SO easy and SO delicious.
ALSO ON SALE: OUR PLACE KNIVES
And it’s not just their cookware that I love. I love the Our Place knives AND THEY ARE ON SALE TOO!
This is their Everyday Chef’s Knife. Made from premium German steel, this knife is perfect for slicing, dicing, and mincing everything from dainty herbs to sturdy root vegetables. And check this out… We had leftover steak and Carter LOVES a steak sandwich on a crusty roll. Looks at the thin slices I am able to cut with the everyday knife! The knife is legit.
The Serrated Slicing Knife is of course perfect for slicing crusty bread and it slices tomatoes better than any other knife I’ve ever used.
You can also buy the Knife Trio, which I would actually recommend because you can get all 3 knives for a super reduced price. Buy them for yourself for sure, but this set would also make a great gift.
And they all come with these sheaths to protect the blades and allow for easy storage. Seriously, if you don’t have a set of good knives, I highly recommend this trio. And listen, until you own nice knives, you have no idea how much joy they will bring you. Chris and I are amazed every time we use them.
If you want the knives and the cutting board, you can grab the Fully Prepped Bundle.
I want to leave you with some thoughts…
- I want to emphasize that when it comes time to clean up, you are going to be amazed! I mean, we all know that the clean up is always the worst part of cooking, but not with these pieces! Clean up is SUPER easy. The nontoxic nonstick surface is crazy slippery and nothing gets stuck to it. Even after the roast had been in the oven for over 3 hours, I literally just did a couple of quick sweeps with the sponge and everything literally slid right off!
- Please keep in mind that all of these items make fabulous gifts. As I said, I gifted the pan to both my mom and mother-in-law for Christmas two years ago, and I gave the knives to my mother-in-law last Christmas. I can personally attest to the fact that they make excellent gifts, and I was super proud and excited to share my love of these products with people I love.
- I want to encourage you to take advantage of all the Our Place sales happening right now. These products are worth their price tags when at full price, but you are scoring an incredible deal if you can scoop them up when they are on sale.
- In addition to loving their pieces, I also love the company and what it stands for. Our Place is a mission driven cookware company that is both women and immigrant-owned. Plus, they thoughtfully source their products, package them in biodegradable materials, and do everything then can to offset their carbon footprint.
Awesome products AND a phenomenal company. What’s not to love?!?
A huge thank you to Our Place and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. Now I’m off to decide what I’m going to cook next!
