No other piece of cookware has taken the internet by storm quite like Our Place's Always Pan. Over the past few years, this coveted item has covered Instagram feeds and been the focus of countless TikToks thanks to its sleek aesthetic and all-in-one appeal. But while it claims to be able to replace the job of 10 pieces of traditional cookware, that functionality doesn't come without a cost. The standard 10-inch size will run you $150, while even the miniature size is over $100. If that seems out of your price range for one product, don't worry. We consulted retail experts to get the scoop on affordable alternatives. Read on for the six best Always Pan dupes you can get for less.

If you're most interested in matching the Instagram-worthy look of the Always Pan, check out Carote.

Oleg Segal, retail expert and CEO of the leading coupon platform DealA, tells Best Life that Carote's Nonstick Granite Skillet is the perfect visual dupe at a fraction of the cost. Compared to the $150 Always Pan price tag, this product will only run you $39.99 for the 10-inch size.

"Featuring a natural stone-derived coating and an ergonomic handle, Carote's pan matches the aesthetics and ease of handling of the Always Pan," Segal says.

But what if you're more concerned with the functionality of the Always Pan? In that case, Christen Costa, retail expert and CEO of Gadget Review, says that the Tiborang 7-in-1 Multipurpose Nonstick Deep Frying Pan is a "great dupe." It's a little pricier than the Carote alternative, but at $50, you're still saving a substantial amount of money.

"Tiborang's Pan does everything the Always Pan does," Costa shares. "It works as a skillet, a deep fryer, a sauté pan, a roasting pan, a saucepan, a stir-fry pan, and a light pressure cooker. I've been impressed by the durability of this pan considering its affordable price."

While the T-Fal Ultimate Hard Anodized Nonstick Fry Pan doesn't offer an expansive collection of fun colors to choose from, it's the long-lasting quality that stands out here, according to Segal. The 10.25-inch T-Fal pan costs just $23.99 on Target's website, and you won't have to worry about having to replace it because of wear and tear.

"This pan is designed to resist scratches, distribute heat evenly, and safely clean in the dishwasher," Segal says.

If you're looking for an Always Pan alternative that is both cheaper and smaller in size, Amiyah Watts, a retail expert and cookware expert with over 10 years of experience, recommends the Rockurwok Ceramic Nonstick Sauce Pan. At $35.99, this 2.5-quart pan is a "great option for small households or for making side dishes," according to Watts.

"It has a nonstick coating that's PFOA-free and dishwasher safe," she notes. "It also comes with a steamer basket, making it easy to cook vegetables or seafood."

Blue Diamond

Not everyone is willing to spend over $20 on a single pan, even if it is multi-purposed. In that case, Selag says that the Blue Diamond Cookware Ceramic 10-inch Nonstick Frying Pan is the cheapest dupe that still stays true to some of the factors that make the Always Pan so enticing.

"Committed to healthy cookware, this pan's ceramic coating is free from harmful substances such as PFAS, PFOA, lead, and cadmium," he explains.

The Blue Diamond pan costs just $19.88 on Amazon and comes in four different colors: blue, green, pink and red.

"Designed for professional use, Tramontina's Professional Fry Pan boasts a non-stick surface and balances quality and affordability," Segal says.
