The Always Pan by Our Place is a modern styled pan that’s said to replace 8 traditional pieces of cookware, including a fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula, and spoon rest.

The new Crofton Awesome Pan coming to Aldi stores the week of January 19, 2022, has no mention of these features, but its design, aside from the spoon rest and side pour spout looks very, very similar. And we can’t imagine Aldi calling the pan awesome, if it wasn’t just that.

The price difference alone is worth testing the Aldi Always Pan dupe out — The Crofton Awesome pan is $24.99 and the Always Pan is $145.

The Aldi Awesome pan is 10.25-inch in diameter and will be available in matte black, beige, and dusty blue. It is compatible with multiple cooktops, including gas, electric, glass-ceramic, halogen, and induction.

  1. I doubt it compares directly with the real pan, and won’t come with helpful tools and features like the wooden spoon shaped perfectly to scrape the sides, the built in spoon rest you can use even with the lid closed, and separate a steamer basket usable with the pan. But for $120 less, if the pan works I’d say it would be worth it!

    Also should note the Always Pan comes from a female immigrant owned business, and has eco friendly and fair trade practices which Aldi may not.

    • With $25 pan, you do not hv to look into fair practice… cannot go wrong and you cannot cheat.!!!
      At $145.00, one can be generous in every way

  2. Aldi is always out of the featured items every time I have gone there. I just check out the foods listed in the ads.

  3. I love my Always pan and have bamboo steamer too. Have gifted the Pan for Christmas. Am an Aldi shopper and will definitely check it out..

  4. I said the Ad of the pan coming to Aldi and I can’t wait to get my hands on one of them.
    Let’s see how good it is.

  5. Hi thanks for the heads up Always pan!
    Got mine Wednesday it is a good all around pan with lid, however I can’t seem to find the spoon test, will you please leT me know where it is located
    Thank you!

  6. I drove to 10 Aldi’s in 3 days in my Metro area. They didn’t even have them. My sister checked four of them for me and nothing. There’s not even a place that would show where there would be. So I’m speculating none of them will get some. But I’m hoping for a miracle.
