Product Review: The Always Pan

Spoiler alert: The Always Pan is one of my favorite new products of 2021!

It’s no secret that I cook at home A LOT. I need a pan that holds up to daily use, that handles a variety of cuisines and cooking styles, and cleans up quick. I found it all in The Always Pan. It’s my number one recommended kitchen addition for this year.

What is The Always Pan?

The Always Pan is a ceramic non-stick pan that does it all. You can use it to braise, sear, saute, steam, fry, boil, serve, and store. Seriously, it replaces about eight pieces of traditional cookware.

I’m not a big fan of most non-stick cookware, but I can support this. The Always Pan has a non-toxic, nonstick ceramic coating made without potentially toxic materials like PFOAs, PTFEs, other PFAs, lead, cadmium, toxic metals, and nanoparticles.

When I’m in the kitchen, I’m rarely cooking with anything else.

Perfect Stovetop Cookware with NO toxic chemicals.  

I’ve used my Always Pan almost daily for six months and it shows no sign of wear. The ceramic serface still perfectly cooks eggs without sticking (my ultimate non-stick pan test). The pan looks beautiful sitting on my stovetop; which is good because it’s a permanent fixture there.

What’s in the box?

The Always Pan retails for $145. BUT IT’S ON BLACK FRIDAY SALE FOR $99! (Don’t Wait) It’s got an aluminum body for fast, even heat. It’s a 10 inch pan, with a 2.3 quart capacity. I’ve found that to be suitable when cooking for three, up to six! It comes with a stainless steel steamer basket that perfectly sits inside the pan (even when storing). The lid is a modular design to hold in steam when you want, and let it out when you don’t. The included beechwood spatula nests along the handle with an integrated spoon rest.

The Always Pan, made by Our Place, is suitable for all levels of cooks. It works best over medium or low heat, although it stands up to a quick high-heat sear. It’s good practice to use high-smoke-point oils or fats (avocado, coconut, EVOO, butter, ghee) anytime the burner is on.

Testing it out: Family Skillet Meal

One of my favorite recipes to make is a one-pan family meal. The Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein by Cassie Joy Garcia in Cook Once, Eat All Week was a big hit! I simply sauteed the chicken, added the squash “noodles”, let some veggies steam on top, and then dressed it up with sauce, sesame seeds, and green onions.

When I was home visiting my family, I was lucky to have my little brother cook breakfast. Here’s a snapshot of perfect skillet bacon. He cleaned up, and there’s no trace of bacon grease: big win!

Other Features of The Always Pan

I also have the Spruce Steamer Basket. It’s an add-on product that integrates into the skillet to perfectly steam dumplings, vegetables, tamales and more. I’ll admit, I’ve never used it. I find that the included stainless steel basket handles the vegetables I need and I haven’t been adventurous enough to make dim sum!

I’ve got my eye on the Perfect Pot as a new member of my kitchen cookware family.

Who is this skillet ideal for?

For anyone who cooks at home, 

For anyone who doesn’t like toxic cookware, 

For a person who needs simplicity,

For someone who is a health-conscious foodie,
