Our Place

Every time Our Place launches its internet-famous Always Pan in 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. Meet Zest, a bright, bold hue that’s ready to cheer up your table this summer and beyond. Grab one for yourself before they're gone. Read our review here.

Made In

Made In is one our go-to retailers for knives because their exquisite cutlery is full tang and fully forged from nitrogen-treated stainless steel. Translation: It's razor sharp and incredibly long lasting. The brand recently introduced several of its award-winning knives with a gorgeous olive wood handle. Add this elegant look to your kitchen setup in the form of the Chef Knife, Santoku Knife, Nakiri Knife, Bread Knife, and Paring Knife — or all of the above. Read our announcement here.

Le Creuset

Throughout its nearly 100-year history, Le Creuset has consistently released color after stunning color of enameled cast iron pans and stoneware baking dishes, and the latest hue is no exception. Meet Cayenne, a spicy addition to any cookware collection. Whether you’re in the market for a signature Dutch oven, a skinny grill pan, a casserole dish, or more, Cayenne is ready to liven up your every meal. Read our announcement here.

Brightland recently teamed up with Oishii, an indoor vertical strawberry farm, to create LUSH, a strawberry vinegar that tastes like summer in a bottle. When word gets out that's it's delicious in cocktails, with summer fruit, over soft-ripened cheese, as salad dressing, and more, this limited-edition release is sure to sell out fast.

Gap recently partnered with Walmart on an exclusive (very affordable, gorgeous-as-ever) collection of tableware. Think lived-in denim, but make it decor. The easy-breezy line includes effortlessly stylish dishes, patterned bowls and plates, ceramic mugs, and other kitchen staples. And as with all things Gap, it will fit in perfectly with whatever you already own in your closet … err, cupboards. Read our announcement here.

Le Creuset

It's easy to love Le Creuset's new limited-edition Destination Mugs. These adorable, travel-inspired mugs are tributes to eight different locales across the U.S., including Boston, Texas, Chicago, and more. They're adorned with Le Creuset's signature three rings at the base and symbols that are a nod to the city or state, and they're made from high-quality stoneware, so they're super durable. The vibrant glaze means they're easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and resistant to chips, scratches, and stains. Read our announcement here.

Great Jones

By popular demand, Great Jones just re-released its beloved Dutchess in Taffy, a gorgeous, rosy pink that looks as great as it cooks. In fact, Taffy has been the brand’s most-requested color ever, but whenever it’s back in stock, it sells out within days, if not hours. (It even had a 1,000-person waitlist!) But here’s the good news: Taffy is back in stock (again!) and ready to become your new kitchen BFF. Read our announcement here.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Bed Bath & Beyond just launched Our Table, a new line of affordable, hardworking kitchen essentials. Everything in the line is designed with shared meals and togetherness in mind. Think gorgeous cutting boards for prepping or presenting, warm and modern dinnerware that makes weeknight family meals feel a bit more special, durable stoneware dishes for baking berry cobbler for a crowd — there’s plenty to check out. Read our announcement here.

Welly Bottle

Welly, the maker of super-stylish infusion water bottles, just introduced three new prints, which are all available on the bestselling Traveler 18oz. Now you can buy the triple-walled, vacuum-insulated bamboo bottles in Bone (an understated shade of white), Speckle (white dots against a black background), and a special print designed in collaboration with LA artist D'ara Nazaryan.

Made In

Tom Colicchio loves the water, and that's why the five-time James Beard Award winner recently partnered with Made In to create state-of-the-art fishing knives. The set includes a straight-edged Flexible Fillet Knife for precision cuts like deboning, skinning, and filleting fish; and a serrated Utility Knife that's best for tougher cuts, like taking the head off a fish, prepping bait, and cutting frozen fish. The slip-resistant handles even match the hull on Colicchio's boat!

If you're unfamiliar with Brandless, let us introduce you. The retailer is known for eschewing logos for lower costs to make high-quality items more affordable — and they just launched a line of stainless steel cookware. The collection includes a two-quart saucepan for just $30, a six-piece cookware set that will only set you back $130 right now (normally $200, which is still such a steal), and other kitchen staples. They're made from five-ply stainless steel and have an aluminum interior that helps distribute heat evenly. Plus, you can use any utensils on the durable surface without worrying about scraping.
