Attention Always Pan lovers: Our Place just announced its biggest news since the Perfect Pot launch. As of today, the internet-famous and Kitchn editor-loved Always Pan is available in cast iron for a limited time only. The new Our Place Cast Iron Always Pan combines the 8-in-1 multi-cooker capabilities that you already love with the supreme quality of heirloom cast iron. Yes, this Always Pan is broiler and oven safe! 

Say hello to making frittatas, baked pastas, one-pot dinners, and so much more with this upgraded Always Pan. But you’ll have to act ASAP — this is a limited drop that we imagine will sell out fast. Like, very fast. If we’ve learned anything from the 30,000-person waitlist the Always Pan once racked up or the constantly sold-out Lavender colorway, it’s that Our Place fans move quickly when it comes to new releases. If you’ve always dreamed of owning an Always Pan, then this new cast iron release is the perfect one to snag right now while you can.

Each Cast Iron Always Pan set includes a nearly 2-qt. cast iron pan, a glass lid, a beechwood spatula (with the built-in spoon rest we already love), and custom silicone grips for handling a hot pan. It’s available in six signature Our Place colors: Steam, Spice, Char, Sage, Lavender, and Blue Salt. 

“We took all the things people love about the original Always Pan — the 8-in-1 multifunctionality, the built-in accessories, the beautiful design — and gave it the cast iron treatment,” says Shiza Shahid, co-founder of Our Place. Not only can this pan fry, steam, sauté, boil, and serve like the original Always Pan does, but it can also beautifully braise under the broiler or roast and bake in the oven. This high-quality cast iron is built to last for years to come, so it’s a great investment piece.

If you’ve been hesitant about owning cast iron, Our Place has gone out of their way to make sure this pan is as user friendly as the rest of their cookware. This durable cast iron pan has a matte black enameled surface, so you can have the best of both worlds: high-performing cast iron cookware that is also easy to clean. Achieve gorgeous sears and beautifully baked dishes that you get with cast iron cookware, minus the worries about pre-seasoning and stuck-on food that can come with traditional cast iron. 

The new pan is just one of many recent Our Place launches. Just last month, they announced the bold new Acid colorway, and the new Our Place Fry Deck came out earlier this year (which we tested). But unlike those releases, this one is only available in limited quantities — get it ASAP before it’s gone.
