Chances are, this isn’t the first time you’ve heard the Kitchn team talk about the Always Pan from Our Place. This do-it-all wonder has amassed waitlists of 50,000 (!!) people, and every time they launch a gorgeous new color, it sells like hotcakes. Why? Because the Always Pan is a multifunctional, space-saving, and durable workhorse that ups the style factor in any kitchen. So without further ado, meet Zest, a bright, bold hue that’s ready to cheer up your table this summer.
If you’ve read Kitchn’s review, you’ll know that this pan really does strive to always be in use, functioning as eight different stovetop items in one. Fry, sauté, sear — the sturdy aluminum body heats evenly and is compatible with all cooktops. Braise, boil, steam — deep 2.7-inch sides, pour spouts, and a steamer basket make it super convenient for liquid cooking. Plus, the included wooden spatula nests in the built-in spoon rest, so you’ve always got a serving utensil handy. And no matter what you’re using your Always Pan for, the non-stick ceramic coating makes it simple to clean after use.
But as much as we love functionality, looks do count, and these beauties practically beg you to present your meals right in the pan. Zest is like a happy ray of sunshine going from your stove to your dining table. It’s lightweight enough to transition with ease, and it’s so gosh-darn pretty that you definitely don’t need a separate serving dish.
Whether you’ve got a colorful kitchen collection already or need something to liven up all those neutrals, The Always Pan in Zest will easily complement your motif. And since it’s so durable, you’ll be cooking well into the winter and beyond, when you’ll be extra grateful for something bright and cheerful in your life. So, before this color sells out — because it will sell out fast — grab one for yourself and give your kitchen that much-needed, dare we say, zest for seasons to come.
