Happy Wednesday, y’all!
I’m THRILLED about today’s post because I’m talking about some of my very favorite products from one of my very favorite brands. AND EVERYTHING IS ON SALE!
And everything else on the site is 20% OFF, no code needed!
These pieces are items I use AND LOVE every single day. They make my life easier (because they are so wonderful to cook with and so easy to clean), and they make my life happier (because I love looking at them). I whole heartedly recommend them to you for your own kitchen, and I also think they make EXCELLENT gifts. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, you should totally take advantage of these sale prices! I’ve gifted several pieces to both my mom and my mother-in-law, and they have all been big hits.
I also love that 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 offset their carbon footprint.
What’s not to love?
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.
Let’s Talk About The Always Pan
I own the Always Pan in two colors! I first got the blue, and then I was lucky enough to have the company send me another pan when terracotta launched, so I’m thrilled to have a back-up! You saw my blue pan in the pics above, so I thought you might want to take a look at the terracotta too. I think both are so pretty, but I actually think I love the “spice” (their #1 best selling color) even more than the terracotta . It’s just a little softer.
Let’s kick things off just talking about how pretty this pan is. BECAUSE SHE’S 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.
There are 8 colors in stock right now (including a limited-edition colorway in “acid”), 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
It’s got a non-stick coating and it’s PFA and PTFE free. I love that it’s cookware that you can feel good about! It’s compatible with all cook tops, which is a frequently asked question. Click HERE for other frequently asked questions and answers.
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. I MEAN! Plus, pretty much all my favorite bloggers sing its praises as well. At one point, this pan had a waitlist of over 30,000 people. So thankful that they’ve ramped up production and seem to be able to keep it in stock now! Still, super popular colors often sell out during sales, so grab what you want quickly!
And the blue salt…
Let’s Talk About The Perfect Pot
The Perfect Pot is just as pretty as the Always Pan, and right now there are 7 (in stock) colors to choose from. This is the “blue salt”.
Y’all know I already owned the Always Pan in the blue salt, so I decided to get the pot in the same color. I had a hard time deciding because I also think it would be fun to mix and match colors, but I ultimately decided to stick with the blue because I think it goes best with my decor.
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 got a non-stick coating and it’s PFA and PTFE free. It’s compatible with all cooktops, and you can also put this in an oven up to 425 degrees! This is a great feature because there are many recipes that require me to take the pot from the stove top to the oven.
The Perfect Pot is 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.
These grooves are what enables the spoon to rest perfectly on the handle, which means it’s always right where you need it.
And this nesting roasting rack doubles as a steamer!
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!
It’s possible with the frequency of my Our Place posts over the years that you already have 1 of the pieces! If you do, you can of course buy just the pan or just the pot for a reduced price today.
However, 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!
I’m telling you, you’re looking at an entire cooking system in just two pieces. These pieces were thoughtfully designed to replace 16 pieces of traditional cookware, they are so beautiful, the pieces can go from cooktop to table, and clean up is an absolute breeze! And on both pieces, the nonstick ceramic coating is made without potentially toxic materials like PFOAs, PTFEs, other PFAs, lead, cadmium, toxic metals, and nanoparticles.
I’m doing a recipe round up today where I’m going to share several previous recipes with y’all again, but I also have a new recipe that I made for the first time just last week! When I saw “Chicken Pot Pie Noodle Skillet” on Pinterest, I knew immediately I had to make it. It was quick, super easy, and delicious.
I boiled the noodles in the Perfect Pot, and I made everything else in the Always Pan.
It called for heavy cream, but because I’m super health conscious (wink wink), I substituted half and half.
After the “filling” was done, I dumped everything into the Perfect Pot and mixed up all of the creamy deliciousness together. I really enjoyed this meal, it was all of the bells and whistles of a chicken pot pie filling, but it just replaced the crust with egg noodles. And I don’t know about you, but I LOVE an egg noodle.
Click HERE for the recipe.
I love how the Our Place pieces are pretty enough to serve out of, and they go from stove top to table so easily.
RECIPE ROUND UP
So now that I’ve shared 1 new recipe, let’s take a walk down memory lane.
Over the years I’ve shared several great recipes that I’ve made with my Our Place products. I thought it would be fun to do a little round up today in honor of the sales! Hopefully these recipes will inspire you to cook some new recipes in your Always Pan and Perfect Pot.
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.
I will tell you this, the house smelled HEAVENLY.
Carter grabbed it out of the oven for me (it’s lightweight unlike most other Dutch ovens), he took one look, and said he couldn’t wait to dig in.
Is your mouth watering yet?
Serving up some serious comfort right there.
Our Place plates (also on sale!)
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 EVERYTHING was done in this one Perfect Pot, which made clean up a total breeze!
For the final touches, I sprinkled a little bit of smoked paprika on the top as well as some chopped parsley for color.
Look how succulent and juicy!
I plated the skillet enchiladas with my new Our Place plates and bowls, and I used one of my new Our Place glasses too! If you want to take advantage of SERIOUS savings, you can get the Dinner for 4 bundle which includes the The Always pan from Our Place, 4 plates, 4 bowls, and 4 glasses. And you can even customize what colors you want for each piece!
And remember, EVERYTHING is ON SALE right now including the plates, bowls, and glasses seen here!
I wanted a dramatic look, so I went with charcoal for the plates and bowls. They look blue in these pics for some reason, but they are definitely a dark and smoky grey. They’re so pretty and I love the size.
And I’m telling you, nothing sticks to this pan!
I love the spruce steamer, and you can even stack two on top of each other!
They fit snugly on to the skillet base, and the top locks in the steam. Stacking two on top of each other will give you so much more available surface area for steaming.
SKILLET GREEN BEANS
Click HERE for skillet green beans. They are SO easy and SO delicious.
These green beans just might be my favorite side dish to cook. It’s the only green vegetable that Carter really loves, so we eat them frequently.
LOOK! HOW! DELICIOUS!
ALSO ON SALE: OUR PLACE KNIVES
And it’s not just their cookware that I love. I’ve talked about my new Our Place knives on previous posts, but I want to talk more about them today as well because they are FANTASTIC. AND THEY ARE ON SALE!
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. When making the roast chicken, I used it to cut carrots, celery, onions, red potatoes, parsley, and sweet potatoes. It’s the easiest time I’ve ever had cutting a sweet potato. Those suckers are hard to cut!
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 for the first time in my life, I was able to cut thin and uniformly sliced tomatoes for burgers. I WAS SO IMPRESSED.
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. I gave them to my mother-in-law last Christmas after hearing her talk about how she needed new knives. Also think about your hubby, your brother, your dad, or your father-in-law! I don’t know what it is, but all men seem to love really great knives, and Father’s Day isn’t that far away.
I showed you the 2 larger knives above, and the Precise Pairing Knife is perfect for the tinier tasks such as peeling fruits and veggies, mincing garlic, etc. All of the knives have a proprietary grooved handle that guides your hand into the perfect pinch grip.
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.
The cutting board is perfect for all sorts of slicing and dicing. I love that it’s such a big surface that you should never have to worry about running out of room during prep, and it’s so pretty that it can double as a serving platter as well!
I want to leave you with 3 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!
- With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day both coming up, 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.
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!
