Some products just explode onto the market. Take the Always Pan, for example - it seems like everyone's got one at the moment.
As the name suggests, the famous pan is a do-it-all addition to your kitchen equipment and makes a great cooking gift. Originally designed to replace eight traditional pieces of cookware, the brand have just released the Always Pan 2.0, which now replaces a whopping ten pieces of cookware. It's the ideal space-saving utensil - oh, and it looks pretty chic, too. Offered in eight different colours, from green to lavender and everything in between, you can see why it's a big hit on Instagram.
But like most highly coveted hero products, it comes with a healthy price tag. Usually retailing at £130, it's not something you'd necessarily buy without thought. Which is why we were very excited to spot that they have just gone into the early Black Friday sales...
Our Place - the folks behind the genius Always Pan - are offering £45 off the bestselling product right now. That's right, the cult piece of kitchen equipment is retailing at just £85, which is the lowest price it's ever been! Almost too good an offer to miss, right? While you're here, don't forget to check out our edit of the best air fryers for more kitchen inspiration.
You can currently save £45 on this famous pan, but we'd be quick, as we doubt the discount will be around for long.
Better yet, the Perfect Pot has also gone into the sale, so if you already have an Always Pan you can complete your collection for less. It is made with the same game-changing ingenuity that made the Always Pan a sellout, and does everything from boiling, baking, crisping and steaming. It's the perfect duo, if you ask us.
You can currently save £41 on the Perfect Pot, making it under £100 for the first time ever. Plus you can choose from 12 fun colours. Our personal favourite is this limited-edition cherry red shade with a brushed gold handle.
What is the Always Pan and why is it so popular?
The clever pan is intended to replace ten different pieces of kitchen equipment from a frying pan, a steamer, a saucepan and more.
The idea is that you should be able to do almost anything with it; braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, the list goes on! Basically, it should be a one-stop-shop for cooking until your heart's content.
It is made from Thermakind™, the brand's exclusive ceramic nonstick coating, and after using one ourselves, we totally get the hype.
It comes in 11 stunning colours (Including eye-catching and more muted shades to suit your kitchen's decor) and we want them all, TBH. But the savings don't stop there - Our Place has a Black Friday sale across its entire website right now. Keep scrolling to shop the deals we're most lusting after.

Like the classic Always Pan, but larger. Perfect for big families and dinner parties alike, you can save an impressive £50 on this right now.
Equally useful (and incredibly adorable) is the mini Always Pan 2.0. It's oven safe and perfect for frying, braising and sautéing your smaller dishes.
The Mini Perfect Pot is the saucepan of our dreams, and obviously matches the rest of your cookware perfectly.
The Home Cook Duo is already a great deal, even before the extra Black Friday discount has been applied. As things stand, it's an absolute bargain - if you want to try the Always Pan and Perfect Pot together, you can get the two for almost the same price as the Perfect Pot alone. We'd recommend choosing different complementary shades for each appliance.
We will be cooking so much more after getting our hands on these. Check out the Our Place Black Friday sale for yourself.
