Instant Pot, Goop Cookware and More

Welcome to Launch Party, our monthly column where we uncover the best new home and kitchen launches to add to your shopping cart.

Beyond fall weather and all things pumpkin spice, October brings with it the anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. And several brands are joining in on the fun with the launch of their holiday gift guides. Notably, Brightland’s 2021 Holiday Gift Guide and Spicewalla’s holiday-themed spice collections. Additionally, several brands also launched kitchen and home essentials that are perfect for upping the cozy factor. We’re talking Brooklinen’s new flannel sheets, a new pillow brand that aims to revolutionize pillow shopping and the spiffy new Instant Pot Pro Plus.

And the good news doesn’t end there. Several of our favorite DTC kitchen brands dropped exciting new products to make our tablescapes a lot more attractive this holiday season. Case in point: Our Place’s gorgeous Blanch colorway, Goop’s new cookware collection and a bevy of exciting new launches from Great Jones. If you need more inspiration for your home and kitchen, you can always check out last month’s launches that are equally as fun and exciting.

Our Place Launches A Brand New Color We’re Obsessed With

Just in time for the holidays, Our Place (the makers of the Instagram-famous Always Pan and newly-launched Perfect Pot) just dropped a brand new color: Blanch—a soft, dusty blue. Blanch pays homage to grandmothers everywhere, honoring the beauty of all things passed down this holiday season. Our Place launches are known to sell-out quickly and since this one is a limited-edition launch we recommend getting a move on it STAT.

Brooklinen Drops Soft, Cozy Flannel Sheets For The Cooler Months

Once the temperatures drop below 60 degrees, you know it’s time to pull out the flannel sheets. And this season, rather than reaching for your old, pilled sheets, we recommend snagging a set of Brooklinen’s brand new brushed flannel sheets. We put them through a rigorous test and right off the bat, these sheets stood out from the rest due to their light weight and soft, cozy texture. Choose between five color options, including a very stylish Gray Buffalo Plaid and a classy Cream and White Stripe number.

An Attractive Cookware Set From Goop

Calling all Goop fans. The lifestyle brand is growing its cookware collection with the addition of brand new 10-piece cookware set made with GreenPan’s clean, nontoxic, nonstick, dishwasher-safe Thermolon Minerals Pro technology. Available in a creamy ecru with gold finishing, it’s the kind of cookware set you’ll want to display this holiday season rather than tuck away in a cabinet.

A Smarter Instant Pot

Instant Pot has done the impossible, the brand took an already awesome product and made it even better. Introducing: Instant Pot Pro Plus, a brand new model that’s about to make cooking completely effortless. Unlike the older IP’s, the Instant Pot Pro Plus pairs with the Instant Brand Connect app, giving users access to a library of over 1,500 smart recipes to choose from.
