First, Our Place released the Spruce Steamer, an Always Pan add-on perfect for making dumplings and other Asian delights. Next came the Tahdig Trio, a bundle of specialty items essential to Persian cooking. And today, Our Place debuts the latest release in its Traditionware collection: the Shabbat Set. That’s right, fellow members of the Tribe, just in time for the Jewish High Holidays, you can score this brand-new collection that’s designed to take your Friday night routine to the next level.

What exactly is the Shabbat Set? It’s a bundle of four items to help home cooks welcome the Sabbath in style. You’ll get a limited-edition oven pan large enough to bake two challahs — it doubles as a stovetop griddle for latkes, matzo brei, and more! — along with a reusable nonstick oven mat marked with measurements to help you size your loaves just right. Next, the set features an ethically sourced, 100 percent cotton challah cover designed in collaboration with the artists at MINNA. Last, two Let There Be Light beeswax candlesticks are included to help you perform the candle-lighting ritual.

Whether you make Shabbat dinner every week or are more of a part-time observer, this set will add modern elegance to every family meal. It comes in the dreamy limited-edition hue Eve, an aquatic teal that will look exquisite in your oven and on your table. Personally, just looking at that beautiful tray makes me smile thinking about one of my favorite childhood (and quarantine) activities: baking (and devouring) challah. And let’s not forget the best thing about a Friday night challah: Sunday morning challah French toast!

At $150, this set is an affordable way to upgrade your cooking routine for the year 5783. It makes a spectacularly meaningful gift for a loved one who is always hosting you for meals, not to mention a thoughtful way to celebrate a wedding or other rite of passage. For now, I wish you all a sweet new year ahead — Shabbat shalom, friends!
