If you’ve been on Instagram in the past two years (and who among us hasn’t?), chances are you’ve seen an ad (or 500) for Always Pan from Our Places. The pans, which have amassed a loyal following, are coated with nonstick ceramic, so they’re non-toxic; they come in a range of mostly pastels and matte glosses that work just as well for a millennial store aesthetic as they do for the stove. Whether you’ve been a lifelong Always Pan fan or haven’t even opened the box yet, these Always Pan recipes prove just how versatile this cool kitchen can be.
If you have to drop $145 on a pan, you’ll want to make sure you’re actually cooking with it (instead of staring lovingly at its beauty). These Always Pan recipe ideas are wonderful one-pot ideas that will get you out of the kitchen rut, and many recipes are kid-friendly or can be modified to be. And rest assured that whatever type of cooktop you have (yep, even induction) is compatible with the Always Pan. Designed to replace eight traditional cooking utensils, as the brand’s website states, the pan comes with a spatula, spoon rest, and steamer basket.
And yes, when you cook with it, it will get dirty and splashy, but rest assured that some soapy water and a sponge will keep it looking great. Read on for Always Pan recipe ideas that will make you want to cook dinner (and clean it up because it’s just one pan).
Whether you’re thinking of buying the Always Pan (those ads will lure you in) or you already have one, these recipe ideas are sure to please everyone and are easy to clean up.
