Between its multi-functionality and chic, minimalist design, it's not hard to see why the internet is so obsessed with Our Place's Always Pan. But even with all of its impressive features, one common qualm that some owners of the pan (myself included) have is that it's not oven-safe.
But that all changed back in April when Our Place dropped a revamped version of its beloved piece of cookware — debuting its first-ever Cast-Iron Always Pan. The release was created due to "endless customer requests," to make the pan oven-safe, a representative for the brand shared with Shop TODAY. And it's clear that people were excited that the brand actually listened — according to Our Place, during that first limited drop, the pan sold out in less than 20 minutes. And now, it's finally back in stock.
"We believe in the beauty of passing down our traditions, our recipes, and now, our cookware,” Shiza Shahid, co-founder of Our Place said in a press release. "We took all the things people love about the original Always Pan — the 8-in-1 multi-functionality, the built-in accessories, the beautiful design — and gave it the cast iron treatment.”
The new Always Pan is made with enameled cast iron, which is said to provide all the benefits of cooking with a normal cast-iron pan without the added hassle and upkeep. The pan is made to withstand high temperatures, so you can start foods (like steak or skillet meals) on the stovetop and then finish them off in the oven. Much like the original nonstick pan, this option is free from potentially toxic chemicals like PTFE, PFOA, heavy metals, lead and cadmium, the brand says.
"Cast iron, especially raw cast iron, has a reputation of being hard to maintain and upkeep,” Kristina Wasserman, Our Place's director of product development and merchandising shared in the release. “It’s why we sourced a high-quality and easy-to-use matte black enameled interior for the pan, a wonderful material that requires no seasoning and creates a beautiful patina over time, to make a truly extraordinary multifunctional cast iron.”
Retailing at $155, the pan comes with a few other essentials that you can use to whip up some delicious meals. Along with the pan, you'll get a glass lid, beechwood spatula (that's made to fit perfectly on the built-in spoon rest) and custom silicone hot grips. It's available in the six signature Our Place colors: Steam, Spice, Char, Sage, Lavender and Blue Salt.
