Plants scoot over, the classic clay pot is now a home for juicy chicken sauteés, crispy eggs, simple stir-fries, and more flavorful mealtime munchies. Back in April, as an ode to spring harvest, Our Place restocked six colors (lavender is still on vacay) of the iconic Always Pan AND debuted a brand new hue — which just so happens to be one of the hottest color trends of spring 2021: terracotta. The rustic warm ginger shade gives us strong down-to-earth vibes and was inspired by co-founder, Shiza Shahid's, love for natural ingredients. Her eco-appreciation works in tandem with Earth day, and Our Place's year-round focus on sustainability — but, we think this stylish wonder pot is a total knockout gift for any holiday. The chic colorway is officially on super sale today only; returning fans and Our Place newbies alike should head on over ASAP before Terracotta turns to Terra-notta in stock.
This eco-chic pan continues to woo shoppers because of its aesthetically pleasing tints, 8-in-1 cookware functionality, and non-stick sorcery. According to Our Place, this kitchen staple replaces a fry pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula (made of beechwood), and spoon rest all on its own. It is also comprised of partially recyclable materials and comes packaged in 100% biodegradable cardboard. Two of us on the R29 Shopping team already dished out stamps of approval — R29's Shopping editor, Elizabeth Buxton, whipped up a one-pan chicken dinner in the lavender Always Pan, and I put together three tasty meals with help of the handwoven Spruce Steamer. Whether you choose to believe us or trust the over 13,000 reviews (and 4.5-star rating) on-site, we think buying this pan is always a worthy investment. "In my childhood, I visited the archeological digs of the Indus Valley Civilization in Pakistan, one of the earliest civilizations. I was in awe of their terracotta cooking vessels — thousands of years old and in a striking palette of burnt orange hues," Shahid shared. "When I see this Terracotta Always Pan, I am reminded of all the ways in which home-cooking connects us across traditions and through time."
