Obsessive Home Cooks’ Favorite Fancy, Do-It-All Pan Is On Sale

Our Place’s Always Pan has long been recommended to us by detail-obsessed cool people as a kitchen must-have. Stylist Mecca James Williams calls it “one pan that can do everything,” and our own Rio Viera-Newton is another fan; she “long coveted the blush-colored pan” and loves using its included steaming basket to make dumplings (“delightful!”). In addition to the basket, the pan comes with a spatula and is designed with what Rio describes as “a pour spout for sauces,” all things that allow it to function as eight different pieces of cookware, according to the brand. (The pan also comes with a special sponge that makes cleaning it super-simple, adds Strategist writer Louis Cheslaw, another Always Pan owner.) For these reasons, we think the pan at full price is a good investment. But at $50 off, as it is today, we would call it a great investment, whether it’s for your kitchen or a loved one’s. The deal, we should add, includes all of the pan’s six soothing colorways: Sage, Char, Spice, Steam, Lavender, and Blue Salt (but fans of Blue Salt or Char should know those colors won’t ship until early next month).

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
