Earlier this year, beloved internet-famous cookware company, Our Place, announced their biggest drop yet: the gorgeous Cast Iron Always Pan. Its initial soft release sold out in just 20 minutes, and it became an instant favorite once the full rollout happened in June. We even got a chance to test it out for ourselves and loved that it solved two major flaws of the cult-fave Always Pan: it’s heirloom-quality (because it’s made of cast iron) and it can finally go in the oven!

If you’re a fan of this new skillet, or you’ve been toying with the idea of getting one, you’ll love this latest Our Place launch. Starting today, you can get your hands on the extremely adorable Tiny Cast Iron Always Pan: a $60 mini version designed for single-serve dinners, side dishes, frying eggs, and more. And that’s not the only news — they’ve also released the Fearless Fry, a stainless steel and silicone splatter guard for frying, sautéing, and more, without any of the counter mess.

Just like its full-size counterpart, the Tiny Cast Iron Always Pan has a matte-black enameled surface for high-performing cast-iron cookware that’s also easy to clean. Achieve gorgeous sears and beautifully baked dishes minus the worries about pre-seasoning and stuck-on food that can come with traditional cast iron.

It comes in at 6.5 inches in diameter, so it’ll be great for frying an egg or two, cooking a single piece of chicken or fish, or making individual baked frittatas, cobblers, or skillet cookies (yum!). As the owner of another type of mini fry pan, I can attest to how wonderful it is cleaning such a small pan versus scrubbing a larger skillet down when you’ve only used it for a small task.

As for the Fearless Fry, Our Place’s ingenious take on a splatter guard, it’s an item you’re guaranteed to use almost daily if you do a lot of pan-searing, shallow frying, or sautéing. It has a stainless steel interior for a sturdy design and a silicone exterior for easy cleanup. Anyone who’s struggled to hand-wash their mesh splatter shield in the sink will appreciate this handy tool! What’s more is that you can fold just one side back to stir while you cook without having to remove the entire piece. And, while it’s custom-designed to fit the Always Pan and Perfect Pot, it comes in at 10.9 inches wide and 13 inches long if you want to see if it’ll fit over a skillet you already have at home.

Our Place is constantly inventing smart products to make everyday cooking much more seamless, and these two new products are certainly no exception!
