Happy Wednesday, y’all! We’re halfway thru the week, and I’m already looking forward to the weekend, how about you? We’ve got some fun things on the calendar, and I’m excited to have some down time too.
Today is a little bit different over here, so get ready! Y’all know that most of the time I talk fashion in this space, but I have a passion for sharing everything I love with others, even if it’s not clothes.
Well. Today is about a pan.
Yep, a pan.
But not just any pan.
It’s the Our Place’s Always Pan!
It might seem odd to have an entire post dedicated to a pan, but by the end of this post, I think you’ll understand my genuine excitement and love for this pan. And before we go any further, you need to know about the awesome SALES that are happening right now:
- You can use the code GOODTASTE30 for $30 OFF the Always Pan now thru May 4th! This discount is awesome, and the timing is perfect, because this pan is the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
Tell me what mother wouldn’t want this beautiful pan sitting on her stove.
2. You can also use the code SHEAFFER10 to receive 10% OFF everything but gift cards (one use per customer), just in case you are interested in their steamers, their bowls, their dishes, or their glasses.
The codes cannot be stacked, so if you want to buy a pan, use the code GOODTASTE30. If you want to buy anything else in addition to the pan, you will use the code SHEAFFER10 for 10% OFF in a separate order.
Let’s kick things off just talking about how pretty she is. BECAUSE SHE’S A REAL BEAUTY. There are several colors to choose from, and I now own 2 colors. I purchased the “blue salt” on my own back in November because I was #influenced. I’ve been cooking up a storm with that pan since I got it and I’VE LOVED IT FOR 5 MONTHS NOW. I also gave it to both my mom and my mother in law for Christmas (in “spice”) and they love it too, so I have personal experience knowing that it really does make an excellent gift.
For this campaign, Our Place wanted to send me their NEWEST COLOR and I was over the moon. Just in time for spring, they have introduced the new terracotta pan! It’s earthy, it’s warm, and it truly is PERFECT for Mother’s Day gifting. This new color is inspired by baked earth, and rooted in the love of making (and eating!) food with our hands. It’s tonally similar to Our Place’s all-time #1 bestselling color, Spice, but in an earthy clay hue. Terracotta is sure to sell-out fast, especially with the $30 OFF code, so don’t waste any time.
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.
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. It’s BACK IN STOCK now, so snatch it up for yourself and your mom too. And don’t worry, if this color doesn’t appeal to you, there’s a color for everybody with over 8 colors to choose from.
Today I’m going to be sharing 2 delicious recipes, and both use only the Our Place’s Always Pan. The first recipe is Skillet Enchiladas. It’s very similar to a recipe that my mom frequently made for our family when growing up. It’s basically a version of a King Ranch Chicken Casserole, but it only uses the 1 skillet for preparation, and you can serve the recipe right out of the skillet as well! And come on, every mom LOVES 1 pot cooking!
- 4 Cups Cooked and Shredded Chicken
- 1 small yellow onion
- 1 can green enchilada sauce
- 1 can chopped green chilies
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 TBSP taco seasoning
- 8-10 corn tortillas, cut into strips
- grated cheese to cover
- cover top of skillet with following: chopped tomatoes, chopped green onion, olives, and cilantro
Directions: Sautee onions in olive oil until translucent. Add cooked and shredded chicken, green enchilada sauce, green chilies, taco seasoning, and sour cream. Mix together until combined. Add corn tortilla strips and combine. After tortilla strips are mixed in, top with shredded cheese and put lid on skillet to melt cheese.
After the cheese is melted, I like to top it with chopped tomatoes, green onions, olives, and cilantro.
It makes such a nice presentation in the Our Place’s Always Pan.
It’s as if the dogs think I had prepared them a nice meal.
I love that the family can just serve themselves straight from the pan. EVERYTHING was done in this one pan, which makes clean up a total breeze!
I plated it with my new Our Place plates and bowls, and I used one of my new Our Place glasses too! I grabbed each in sets of 4, but if you need 8 you can take advantage of the savings. 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 customize what colors you want for each piece!
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.
I’m telling you, nothing sticks to this pan!
And check this out! If you do a lot of steaming in your house, or if you would like to start doing a lot of steaming in your house, you can choose to add on a spruce steamer (or 2).
Each steamer comes with a set of bamboo cooking chopsticks and 15 paper liners.

You can of course perfectly steam (non mushy!) vegetables and fish, but you can also steam other things such as tamales and dumplings.

Click HERE for the dumpling recipe I followed. You use the basic skillet for the first part of the recipe when cooking the filling. It’s a super yummy combo of pork, shrimp, green onions, dried black shitake mushrooms, ginger, sesame oil, oyster sauce, and sherry wine. Delicious!
After I cooked the filling and assembled the dumplings, I piled them into the 2 steamers!
They fit snugly on to the skillet base, and the top locks in the steam! I love that you can easily stack two on top of each other to give more surface area for steaming.
If you can’t tell, I was pretty dang proud of myself.
And the pups were certain they were going to get a treat.
LOOK HOW AMAZING! DELICIOUS dumplings, brought to you by the Our Place’s Always Pan, their spruce steamer, and ME! Haha!

Here are some CARE TIPS for the pan:
+ 1-2 tablespoons of oil or butter is more than enough to lightly coat the Always Pan’s entire surface. High smoke point oils are recommended… extra virgin olive, refined coconut, avocado, and peanut oils as well as ghee.
+ Avoid cooking on high heat.
+ Hand wash with warm soapy water to extend the life of the non-stick coating. It comes with a special sponge that cleans it with barely any elbow grease!
+ Use non-metal utensils to avoid damaging the coating (the pan comes with a wooden spatula).
My obsession with this pan is real y’all. I look forward to preparing meals and don’t even mind cleaning up as much because I get to put the pretty clean pan right back on top of my range to admire!
If you’re struggling with what to get your mom for Mother’s Day, this pan would be an excellent choice. Just pick a color that would complement her kitchen and her decor to make it personalized and special! I’m telling you, she will be THRILLED. Since I already gifted it to both my mom and mother-in-law, I’m thinking the steamer baskets would be a perfect idea for them!
- The code GOODTASTE30 will get you $30 OFF the Always Pan now thru May 4th!
- The code SHEAFFER10 will get you 10% OFF everything but gift cards (one use per customer), just in case you are interested in their steamers, their bowls, their dishes, or their glasses.
- The codes cannot be stacked, so if you want to buy a pan, use the code GOODTASTE30. If you want to buy anything else in addition to the pan, you will use the code SHEAFFER10 for 10% OFF in a separate order.
Happy Shopping, y’all!
And Happy Gifting!
And most importantly, Happy Cooking!
A huge thank you to Our Place and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. Now I’m off to decide what I’m going to make next in my pan!

Whoa! Super impressed by your dumplings! They look delish!
I’m not going to lie. I’m basically a professional chef now. 😉
I was #influenced last year too and this pan really is awesome. My mom has used mine when she was at my house and she loved it, so this really is the best Mother’s Day gift idea for her. Thanks for the recommendation because it hadn’t crossed my mind. The blue color is going to look so good in her house, and $30 off is great.
I mean, it really is good Lisa! So happy you love it too, and being able to cross of “Mother’s Day present” off your list is a great feeling!!! xoxo
I have it and love it. You convinced me on the steamers today, so I’m going to grab those. I wish they would introduce a bigger pan. I would totally buy it too.
YES, Meredith! I would love a larger size pan for my collection! Dear Our Place, please create a larger pan! Sincerely, All of Us 🙂

I just used my pan last night!!! I love how NOTHING sticks to the bottom! It’s so easy to clean!!
I can’t help but be more interested in your striped long-sleeved top than the pan today – could you please share a link?
Hi, Kathleen! YES! I love it and have it in a navy stripe and the solid rosy grapefruit too and both are linked on the same post (and the link will take you to the one you see in this post too). And they are on SUPER SALE! You can find the pics and links here: https://sheaffertoldmeto.com/friday-favorites-115/
Is this pan as heavy as cast iron?
Hi, Kathy! It’s thick, but it’s not nearly as heavy as cast iron. Hope this helps! xoxo
I bought a lavender pan for myself and a spice pan for my mom when you posted a link of FB before Christmas. I love mine and my mom was excited when she opened it!
YAY! Love hearing this, Brooke! xoxo
