The Always Pan from Our Place
The Always Pan from Our Place

Saute Away
The Always Pan from Our Place has developed somewhat of a cult following likely because of the highly versatile pan’s good looks and best-in-class branding. It’s no marketing mirage though. This pan does it all: braise, sear, steam, strain, saute, fry, boil, serve and even store. They gave the 10” diameter sturdy aluminum body a ceramic coating made without all the toxic stuff. It comes with a stainless-steel steamer basket, a modular lid that you can lock and a beechwood spatula that sits in an integrated spoon rest right on the pan. You can add on a spruce steamer basket with liners and cooking chopsticks. Always Pan Sage, $145, Spruce steamer add-on $25
