The highly lauded cookware start-up Our Place doesn’t often have sales, but this week is a rare exception, with product-specific deals every day. Today only, its Strategist-beloved Tabletop Set is 34 percent off. For only $95, you get four plates, four bowls, and four tumblers. But don’t let the price be the only thing that tempts you. When we tested plates from seven new DTC companies, we found these to be the all-around best: “handsome but not flashy, sturdy, with a solid price tag.” Each component in the set is stackable to save on space and can go in the dishwasher for easy cleanup. They’re made with durable-feeling porcelain, and each one is hand-painted to finish. They look sophisticated and special (especially all together), but don’t require the same level of investment as hand-thrown ceramic pieces — making them perfect to gift a college student or recent grad moving into their first apartment, or for yourself if you’re still using those Ikea dishes you bought ten years ago. There are plenty of colors to choose from, too, so you can mix and match their signature earthy tones to your heart’s content.
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.
