Budget-friendly kitchen items are great and all (particularly if you’re someone who appreciates a good bargain), but what if there was one gadget that could replace the essentials? With the Always Pan, that’s mostly what you’re in for: This nonstick, cast-aluminum pan performs like eight pieces of cookware in one and does some seriously heavy lifting in the cooking department. Now for a limited time, you can get it on sale.

During this Our Place sale, you can save up to 28 percent on bestsellers across the site. This includes the popular Always Pan, which is currently marked down to $115, so you’ll save about $30. Additionally, you can snag other fan-favorite offerings from the company’s line-up, including everything from mugs to bundle deals. One set in particular, now on sale for $60 off, includes the Always Pan and the Perfect Pot, and is about $30 less than what it would cost to get them separately.

Even though the Always Pan and Perfect Pot are still expensive, they’re both a great value when you consider all that you’re getting in return. The Always Pan is a workhorse in the kitchen and you can use it to fry, braise, boil, sear, sauté, steam, and even strain the contents of your dish—plus, it looks really sleek and offers a built-in spoon rest. It’s even compatible with most stoves (including induction cooktops) and has a durable ceramic coating that’s free of potentially harmful materials like lead and toxic metals.

The Perfect Pot is no slouch, either. Like the Always Pan, it’s nonstick, has a ceramic coating, and can replace up to eight pieces of cookware, including your classic Dutch oven, stockpot, and roasting rack. Whether you’re looking to bake something, roast it, or just crisp your food, it’s up for the task.

Both gadgets come highly rated and recommended, as well. The Always Pan has about a 4.6-star rating, while the Perfect Pot has a 4.8-star rating. Specifically, nearly 33,000 shoppers have given the Always Pan a try, with many lauding its lightweight feel (it clocks in at just 3 pounds) and versatility. “I love this pan. Everything you hear about ceramic pans—think being able to fry an egg without oil, no sticking—is actually true of this pan,” one user wrote. As for the Perfect Pot, another reviewer raved: “[I] simply love this pot—[it’s] not as heavy as other similar [types of] pots and the nonstick surface really works when making big batches of chili or spaghetti sauce that have to simmer over time.”

The Always Pan is usually available in eight colors, but multiple shades have already sold out. Still, you can snag it in sage (green), spice (an earthy, pinkish-hue), or blue salt (deep blue). If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not to give this a try (or test out other Our Place cookware options, like the Perfect Pot), now would be a great time, as sales like this don’t come around often.
