The Our Place Perfect Pot And My Favourite Filipino Recipe

by - Friday, October 29, 2021

Are you thinking about the holidays already? It seems that planning for Christmas is starting sooner than ever this year and I'm all for it! I'm so looking forward to larger gatherings and making new memories with family and friends.

All the news warnings about shipping delays and low inventories has prompted me to get a head start on my shopping. This year, I want to be really thoughtful about the things I buy which is why I'm so excited to tell you about the Our Place Always Pan and Perfect Pot. They are at the top of my gift giving list, plus I have an exclusive savings code for you to enjoy!

Our Place Savings Code


Are you familiar with the Always Pan? It has been super popular on social media and I'll tell you it lives up to its promise. Sean gifted me one for the cottage last year and it truly is an all-in-one pan. From fluffy scrambled eggs and easy one-pot meals to chicken piccata, the Always Pan can handle it all with ease. 

What I love most about the pan is how versatile it is. It's your fry pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula, and spoon rest. Not to mention it comes in 10 different colours that are so pretty, you'll want to leave the pan out all the time. The newest colour, Blanch, is a fresh light blue that would look great in a coastal interior. 

What colour would you pick? I'm excited to offer you an exclusive savings code if you want to bring any Our Place products to your home.

Meet the Perfect Pot


When the Our Place team reached out about the new Perfect Pot, I was intrigued. I frequently use a large pot when I'm cooking and my old one was definitely in need of replacement. But would the Perfect Pot meet my needs? Would it be as easy to use and reliable as the Always Pan?

The answer was a resounding yes. The Perfect Pot is the Always Pan’s (New) Best Friend. It’s a dutch oven, stock pot, saucepan, roasting rack, steamer, colander and braiser combined with a built-in spoon system. 

The pot is also surprisingly lightweight and for any recipes that you want to finish off in the oven, this pot is perfect for that since it’s oven safe.

Filipino Chicken Adobo with Potatoes and Garlic Rice

To give the Perfect Pot a test, I decided to make one of my favourite comfort foods, Filipino chicken adobo with potatoes and garlic rice.

I don't cook too many Filipino recipes but this is one that Sean, Chloe and I all love. Chicken adobo is a classic Filipino dish that uses soya sauce, white vinegar, garlic, black peppercorns, and bay leaves. You might think that would taste sour, but the soy and vinegar combine to create a balanced and flavourful dish. 

Typically, adobo is cooked with chicken or pork but I've added in some potatoes that I needed to use up. When I'm pressed for time, I pair this dish with simple steamed jasmine rice but this time, I went the extra step and made a garlic fried rice.

Using both the Always Pan and Perfect Pot at the same time allowed me to prepare dinner very quickly. 

Even better, you can transfer the pot and pan right to the table. They add pretty colour to your table setting (and you don't need to wash any extra serving dishes!). Just be careful when you're moving the cookware as the handles do get hot while cooking.

  2. Remove the cooked rice from the pan and let cool for 10 minutes. Wash the pan.
  3. Put the pan over medium heat and melt the butter. Add the garlic and 2/3 of the green onions and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the cooked rice and toss to coat well. Add salt as needed. Serve and top with the remaining green onions.

Dinner was delicious and clean up was super easy. The nontoxic nonstick surface is slippery so nothing gets stuck to it. I can just wipe it down with a soft sponge and everything slides right off.

At a 5.5 quart size, the Perfect Pot was more than big enough to handle our small dinner for three. I look forward to trying out more recipes using the pot, like a dutch oven lasagna or maybe even baking bread.

Holiday Gifting

The Perfect Pot and Always Pan are an entire cooking system and really have helped make cooking enjoyable and fun. Is it weird to say I look forward to bringing out my pretty blue pot, with my holiday guests gathered around the table?
