To say we’re not alone in our love for The Always Pan from direct-to-consumer cookware brand Our Place is a little bit of an understatement. It’s been over a year since we took this do-it-all pan for a test drive, and since then we’ve watched in awe as the yummy colors continue to sell out on the regular, with waitlists of up to 50,000 folx. Yes, The Always Pan is that good, and it keeps getting better. Which brings us to this delightful bit of news: Our Place just revealed their eighth (!) new color: Terracotta! It’s a delightfully earthy, warm hue that feels especially right for spring or even gifting mom for Mother’s Day.

Besides braising, searing, frying, steaming, straining, boiling, and serving, the Always Pan is also rightly renowned for just looking really gosh darn great on your stovetop. And, that’s where the new Terracotta color comes in — just like the earthenware pots of the same name that help to bring fresh herbs and veggies to life each spring, this new version of The Always Pan evokes a fresh start with every meal you make. Its color was originally inspired by the terracotta pots that have been used as cooking vessels for thousands of years by some of the earliest civilizations, so it also reminds us of the ways home cooking connects us across traditions and through time.

Like every Always Pan, the new Terracotta version has a non-toxic nonstick ceramic coating, is compatible with all cooktops, and comes with a custom stainless steel steamer basket and a beechwood spatula that nests perfectly on the pan’s handle. You can also add on a spruce steamer, which is larger than the included steel steamer basket. It’s especially great for making perfect dumplings or steaming veggies, and we’ve found ourselves using it almost daily. The Always Pan is also dishwasher-safe but Kitchn contributor Patty who spent months testing the pan, agrees that it’s just as easy to wipe it clean with a sponge and soapy water since the nonstick coating is so effective.

In the past, we’ve kept a close eye on all of Our Place’s newest color launches (and subsequent sell-outs), so consider this a first alert if you’re interested in snagging an Always Pan in Terracotta for yourself (and maybe a matching one for mom, too!). We’re pretty certain this gorgeous new version will sell out quickly, so get it while you can!
