About Our Place
While Our Place is best known for their viral Always Pan, the story behind the company goes deeper than an Instagram-approved color palette. Founder Shiza Shahid left her consulting job at the age of 22 to help establish Malala Yousafzai’s namesake fund, where she witnessed how stories can shift perspectives on longstanding issues. Shahid aimed to do the same with Our Place by pushing against the idea that you need a 16-piece cookware set to create a stunning meal. Instead, Our Place’s multifunctional cookware is designed to make it easier to tap into the culture, identity, innovation, and sense of community that food represents. It’s about bringing people together, whether that’s over a shared meal or through partnerships with organizations uplifting their communities, like Feeding America.
Why we love them
We love how Our Place simplifies your cabinet while still allowing you to cook whatever your heart desires. The cult-favorite Always Pan is designed to handle just about any type of cooking, from sauteing to boiling to steaming, with an easy-to-clean nonstick surface free of toxic chemicals. The bestseller does the work of a frying pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, and more. The brand thought of everything: Pour spouts for mess-free draining, a nesting strainer and wooden spatula, and a lid that can either hold steam in or release it as needed. Add in the Perfect Pot — your new stockpot, dutch oven, saucepot, steamer, braiser, etc. — and you have all the functionality of a professional cookware set without the space crunch. They say that even a novice cook can make something noteworthy with the right tools, and Our Place puts those tools within reach.
