Disclosure: Thank you to Our Place and ShopStyle for partnering on today’s post. I am so grateful to work with brands and share products that I truly love and use!
If you’ve been around LIY for any length of time, you know my love for Our Place products is no secret [I’ve never been good at keeping those]. While I’m no executive chef in the kitchen, having the right utensils [that happen to match your cabinets, priorities] sure helps. I’ll jump into WHY this pot and pan is rave-worthy, but before we get there, let me tell you the sale information you really want to know about [keep in mind, Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I can assure you any woman would love these as gifts]!
From now until May 8th, they are having a Spring Sale where you can save on their most popular products – the famous Always Pan for $115 [$145 value], the Perfect Pot for $125 [$165 value], and the Home Cook Duo [Always Pan + Perfect Pot] for only $225 [$265 value]! Plus you can take 20% off everything else on the site!
Can we just take a minute and soak up that green goodness? Who knew your kitchen pots and pans could double as pieces of decor? Anyhow, all looks aside, let’s talk about why these pans and their functionality is worth jumping in spoon first to!
Both The Always Pan and The Perfect Pot are 8 kitchen tools in one meaning you can literally have these two, the perfect Home Cook Duo, and have essentially everything you need when it comes to whipping up your next dinner masterpiece, even if said masterpiece is another box of Kraft mac and cheese!
My personal favorite features of both pans: we have to start with the non-toxic nonstick ceramic coating that doesn’t contain harmful materials, it is free of Teflon, PTFEs and PFAs. Not only can I cook my food concern free, but I can also wipe up the “mess” from the bottom of the pan in just a few wipes which has made for a very happy after-dinner cleanup.
Other favorite features: the built-in spatula and spatula rest is a lifesaver. I always hated sticking my spatula on the stove or countertops and while I’ve always had a spoon rest on my stove I could use, I never wanted to because it was just one more item to put in the dishwasher. I never have to concern myself with where to stick my spatula when not in use anymore.
Additionally, I l-o-v-e that both The Always Pan and The Perfect Pot has a built-in pour spout which means that anytime I need to drain grease or liquids, I can do so very easily. Last but not least [I could keep going] is the way that it looks. I am absolutely a consumer with the belief of “the cuter the better” and this pot and pan is the best-looking kitchen tool I’ve ever owned, just look at all of the fun color offerings! Fun fact and added bonus: Our Place is a mission-driven cookware company that is both woman and immigrant-owned. I love supporting and promoting businesses that are fellow women entrepreneurs with a bigger purpose!
From the stove to the table in two hot pads flat, she’s ready to serve your guests and wait for them to “oooh and ahhh” over your insanely cute serving ware [aka pots & pans], I mean delicious food.
ps. If you’re drooling from the chili above [trust me, it’s good] the recipe is below! Rather than making it in the slow cooker, you can also use your Perfect Pot to combine all ingredients and let it simmer on the stove until all flavors are mixed. Enjoy!
