You may know Selena Gomez from her role in last fall's hit TV show Only Murders in the Building, or perhaps you can't get enough of her bubbly pop songs. And you may also be aware that Gomez loves to cook—she stars in a hit HBO Max series, Selena + Chef, which, as the title suggests, documents her journey in the kitchen learning from professional chefs. So it's only fitting that recently, the actress, singer, and founder of makeup brand Rare Beauty has come out with some other exciting news: She's partnered with kitchenware brand OurPlace to collaborate on a number of product offerings perfect for the cook in your life.
OurPlace strongly believes in the importance of whipping up home cooked meals to enjoy with loved ones. The company is best known for its ultra popular Always Pan, which is designed to replace eight traditional pieces of cookware, believe it or not! The piece is designed to serve as fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, nonstick pan, spatula, and spoon rest, all in one. The pan's functionality, versatility, and sleek appearance makes it a favorite among small space dwellers, home chefs, and design enthusiasts alike.
Our Place Dinner at Selena's
Gomez is vivacious and effervescent, so it's only fitting that she chose two vibrant colorways for her products: an electric blue and a lush berry pink. We'd be lying if we said aesthetics didn't influence how we shop for kitchen pieces, and we know that Gomez's products will look fabulous on any stovetop and make meal prep feel a little more fun.
The pieces that make up Gomez's collection include the Always Pan, the OurPlace favorite, the Perfect Pot, a knife trio, a set of four drinking glasses, dinner plates, and side plates. Of course, if you feel like decking out your entire kitchen with a little bit of everything, you can also place an order for the special Dinner at Selena's Bundle, which includes an Always Pan, the set of drinking glasses, and dinner plates. At $215, this would make for an excellent birthday, graduation, or housewarming gift for a loved one, given that it's a super useful way for a beginner to build out their kitchenware collection. That said, we won't judge if you simply choose to treat yourself!
As if the cute colors weren't enough to make you want to shop, note that 10 percent of proceeds from Gomez's collection with OurPlace will go to an important cause: supporting the Rare Impact Fund. This nonprofit is one that Gomez started to expand mental health services for young people in educational settings.
So what are you waiting for? As you plan out some summer recipes to whip up, consider restocking your basic kitchen supplies, too. Then invite some friends over to for a home cooked meal al fresco—what could be better?
