Modernize your kitchen with Our Place’s new wok and blender

Our Place

Give your cooking game a glow up with these sleek new products

Many consider the kitchen the most important room in a home. It's where you cook the food that nourishes your family and friends. It's also where a great deal of bonding takes place. Everything from the décor to the cookware helps make a kitchen special.

Our Place knows this, and the company strives to create products that celebrate the beauty and joy of home cooking. Recently, the beloved brand announced two new additions to its comprehensive line of kitchen products: the Hot Wok Set and the Splendor Blender. Here's a closer look at these two new items, along with a short list of some of our favorite Our Place products.

What is Our Place?

Before starting Our Place, co-founder Shiza Shahid already had an impressive resume. The Pakistan-born entrepreneur was a student activist, refugee camp volunteer, start-up funder and a co-founder of the Malala Fund, a program dedicated to ensuring all girls have access to free, safe, quality education.

According to the company's website, Shahid found her place in America by cooking and sharing food to increase her chosen family. Her goal was to "build a bigger table" so everyone would have a place. Besides being rooted in authenticity and representation, Our Place has released some incredible products, such as the Always Pan and the Perfect Pot, which have firmly established the brand in a remarkably brief period as a top choice for quality kitchen products.

Two new Our Place products that level up your kitchen

Last month, Our Place announced the addition of two new products to its already extensive line: the Hot Wok Set and the Splendor Blender. 

Our Place Hot Wok Set

More than a wok, Our Place's Hot Wok Set includes the Hot Wok, a glass lid, a beechwood spatula, a handwoven steamer, cooking chopsticks and 10 steamer liners. The wok is made of preseasoned carbon steel, so it retains heat, but isn't as heavy as cast iron (only 3.1 pounds). It is 12 inches in diameter and 3.8 inches deep, giving you a 3.7-quart capacity. And it is compatible with all cooktops. The wok (not the lid) is designed to endure temperatures up to 600 degrees (425 with the lid). The included accessories expand the wok's capabilities, letting you boil, steam, stir-fry and more. 

To clean, the manufacturer recommends washing by hand once the wok has completely cooled. For deep cleaning, use boiling water and baking soda. Never use abrasive cleansers or cleaning agents.

To sweeten the deal, Our Place offers free shipping with a 100-day trial and free returns.

Our Place Splendor Blender

The Splendor Blender features the clean, modern design of other popular Our Place products. It is well built with a sturdy base and comes with the aforementioned base, a blade, a personal blending vessel and drinking lid so you can take your meal with you as soon as you're done blending. The 1,000-watt motor can get the job done in about 45 seconds, while the wavy vessel walls help ensure all ingredients get bounced around for even and thorough blending.

For easy cleaning, everything but the blender base is dishwasher-safe. However, the blades are extremely sharp, so you must be very careful when handling. Like many other quality kitchen products, never use abrasive cleaning tools. And, if you prefer, the blender has a self-cleaning feature: Just add warm water to reach the maximum fill line and a drop of detergent, pulse and rinse.

The Splendor Blender also comes with a 100-day trial and free returns.

Our favorite items from Our Place

Our Place Wonder Oven

This countertop oven might look small, but it is large enough to cook a full 4.5-pound chicken. And it can air-fry, bake, roast, broil, toast and reheat. Plus, it has steam-infusion technology to make hard bread soft again. This aptly named appliance truly is a wonder.

Our Place Dream Cooker

The Dream Cooker is specifically designed to live on your countertop. It is an all-in-one multi-cooker that can reduce your cook time by as much as 80% with some dishes. It features no-pressure pressure cooking, slow cooking, sear, and a keep-warm setting so you can make everything from soup to rice to potatoes.

Our Place Always Pan 2.0

Unless you're off the grid, you are probably already familiar with the Always Pan 2.0. It is the beautifully designed, versatile frying pan that does the job of 10 pieces of traditional cookware. Even better, it is made with 100% post-consumer recycled aluminum and no potentially harmful toxins.

Our Place Cast Iron Hot Grill

With Our Place's Cast Iron Hot Grill, you can bring the joy of outdoor cooking inside, complete with grill marks. It is compatible with gas, electric, induction and ceramic cooktops, and oven-safe to 500 degrees. It also makes an excellent companion for the company's popular Perfect Pot.

Our Place Ovenware Set

This five-piece set is available in six colors and includes an oven pan, a main bake, a side bake, a loaf pan and an oven mat. All parts are oven-safe up to 450 degrees. The pieces fit together to simplify storage, while the nonstick design makes cleanup nearly effortless.

Our Place Cookware Set

If you'd like to upgrade your cookware, this set lets you do exactly that. It comes with an Always Pan 2.0, a Mini Always Pan 2.0, a Perfect Pot and a Mini Perfect Pot 2.0. Four pots might not seem like a lot, but with their versatility, this set might be all you'll ever need.
