Just when we thought we couldn’t love Our Place‘s Always Pan any more, they released a new limited-edition color out of the blue. Literally. Meet blue salt, the latest hue to join the Internet-famous, multipurpose pan’s rainbow of color choices, which includes gorgeous shades like the perpetually sold-out spice (it has a 30,000-person waitlist!), earthy sage, and a dreamy lavender that was released in September to celebrate the brand’s one-year anniversary. And since blue salt is a limited-edition color, we’re pretty sure that, like all things Always, it won’t stay in stock for long.

If you’re new to the Always-Pan party and wondering if it’s really worth the hype, I have one word for you: Yes! Now for the slightly longer answer …

1. It’s a Multipurpose, Space-Saving Workhorse

Designed to function as eight pieces of cookware in one, the 2.6-quart pan with three-inch-deep sloped sides can be used as a fry pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, and saucepan, and it includes a spatula and convenient spoon rest to prevent messes. Plus, the pan is crafted from partially recycled materials that are ethically sourced from female-owned factory partners, so you can feel even better about your purchase.

2. You Can Cook Everything with It

Kitchn contributor Patty spent six months testing the pan, preparing everything from saucy shrimp dinners to risottos to spiced curries for her family of four, and she was thoroughly impressed. “I’ve never had a single scrambled egg stick, and dinner slides cleanly out — always,” she says. In fact, I have had my own Always Pan for a few months now and have used it to successfully cook tricky items like crepes and dosas. The stainless steel steamer basket makes it easy to steam sprouts and veggies for salads. And, if you enjoy cooking dumplings and fish, Our Place recently launched beautiful wooden steamer baskets designed to absorb moisture and keep meals from turning into a mushy, soggy mess.

3. Cleanup Is a Breeze

“If your go-to pan is a nonstick pan because you hate the cleanup that comes with cooking, this is a great, smart upgrade,” says Patty. In fact, the nonstick pan is so low maintenance that you don’t even have to pre-soak it before giving it a scrub down. “You just need to wipe it clean with a soft sponge and warm, soapy water,” she adds, and you’re good to go. Even better, it’s dishwasher safe.

4. It’s So Pretty!

From the understated design to the gorgeous colors, the Always Pan is a beautiful, functional piece that you’ll look forward to using every single day. As for the limited-edition blue color? We can already picture it dressing up a festive dinner table or sitting pretty under your favorite food lover’s Christmas tree. Just make sure you grab yours before it’s gone forever.
