The Pan That Had A 30,000-Person Waitlist Is Now Available Online (Plus, A New Pot!)

When people used to tell me that they get up at 5AM to drink their coffee in peace and get chores done, I thought they sounded crazy. Give up sleep to have coffee in peace?! Then I became a mother and it suddenly all made sense. My favorite time of day is the hour alone in the morning (sometimes two if I’m lucky). I have my coffee as I zip through my to-do list essentials. That could be anything from editing or writing to cooking or cleaning.

And that’s where Our Place comes in.


When you’re short on time and space things that are multi-functional become more important than ever. Our Place makes two products – Always Pan and Perfect Pot – that take multi-function to the next level.

The brand launched with a pan that quickly amassed a whopping 30,000 person waitlist – and for very good reason.

Designed to replace eight pieces of kitchen/cookware (and it does so incredibly well!), the pan works as a fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula and spoon rest. You can do everything from fry a shnitzel to strain pasta and steam veggies. Plus, the handle doesn’t get hot

But that’s not all.

Both the ceramic pan and the pot have a non-toxic, non-stick coating, which is made without potentially toxic materials and metals — so you can easily clean them and feel good about using them to make food even for your little ones just starting solids. Non-stick also means that you can cook many things without oil and butter and still have them come off the pan easily, including eggs.

As for the pot, it’s just as multi-functioning and space-saving as the pan. It serves as a stockpot, Dutch oven, saucepot, roasting rack, steamer, bread pot, braiser and spoon rest.

Both the pan and pot come in a variety of colors to make them great for your Instagram feed as well.

Perfect pot ($165); Always Pan ($145) at Our Place.
