Bed Bath and Beyond is basically Disney World for grown-ups—instead of exhilarating amusement park rides, you get your thrills from dollars saved and coupons scanned. Hardcore BB&B fans can sign up for a yearly membership called Beyond+, not unlike Disney's annual pass option. And now, the most magical (retail) place on earth has launched its own line of cookware under the name Our Table.
About Bed Bath and Beyond's Our Table line
Launched in June 2021, Our Table is an assortment of classic kitchen staples (think: baking sheets, nonstick cookware, and silicone utensils) and what the brand calls "trend-forward" pieces like an ultra-niche asparagus steamer—more on that later. The full collection includes cookware, bakeware, dinnerware, table linens, and more. Our Table is available exclusively at Bed Bath and Beyond both in stores and online.
As a life-long Bed Bath and Beyond fan, I had to give these products a try. Here's everything I tried from the Our Table line.
Our Table 17x13-inch Textured Jelly Roll Pan
I preheated my oven to 375°F and got to work cutting my potatoes in preparation for roasting. The Our Table textured pan was super lightweight thanks to its heavy-gauge carbon steel construction. I added my potato chunks directing to the pan, then drizzled with olive oil and salt—no parchment paper meant that this would be a test of the pan's nonstick properties.
After about 25 minutes, I pulled my potatoes out of the oven to assess the situation. The pan was delightfully nonstick and didn't warp at all during the bake. (Granted, the temp wasn't quite high enough to really produce warping, but low-end baking sheets can definitely fold under temperatures below 400°F.) I scooped my potatoes off the sheet pan with ease, and clean up was just as simple.
Our Table 3.5-quart Stainless Steel Asparagus Steamer Set
This was easily the piece I was most excited to test because 1. I love asparagus and 2. I'm not typically a fan of uni-tasking kitchen tools, unless they get the job done effortlessly. I filled the outer pot with about an inch of water just as I normally would for a steamed veg situation. I prepared my asparagus by peeling the bottom third of each spear and removing the tough ends, then placing all spears into the basket with the tips facing up. Once the water was boiling, I placed the basket in the pot and covered it with the lid.
I removed the lid and tested the asparagus after five minutes using a fork and to my surprise, it was perfectly cooked from top to bottom. I used a set of tongs to safely remove the basket from the pot (more on the tongs later!) and served my asparagus with a drizzle of good olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and a sprinkling of flakey sea salt.
My only qualms with this product are that it doesn't come with instructions and perhaps isn't actually as versatile as it claims to be in that it really only excels at cooking tall vegetables. Even so, it's the best pot I've ever used to steam asparagus.
Our Table Forged Aluminum Ceramic Nonstick 2-Piece Fry Pan Set
We've tested a lot of nonstick pans here at Reviewed, so this particular set had some pretty big shoes to fill. I sautéed my salmon fillets in the 10-inch frying pan with a bit of olive oil to give the salmon an extra crispy skin. After about five minutes undisturbed, I was able to easily flip the salmon to cook the other side without any sticking.
I used the 8-inch pan to make my basil cream sauce. Both the 8- and 10-inch frying pans distributed heat evenly and lived up to their nonstick titles. These pans were also a breeze to clean, plus they're compatible with induction cooktops.
Our Table Silicone Kitchen Utensils Collection
Silicone utensils aren't the best for every kitchen task, but when it comes to working with nonstick cookware, these are the safest tools for the job. The full Our Table utensil collection includes eight silicone pieces: a spoon, a slotted spoon, a turner, a slotted turner, an all-purpose spatula, a pointed spatula, a set of stainless steel locking tongs, and a whisk. I used the turner and tongs to cook dinner and loved them both, especially because of their beautiful teal color (also available in red and grey).
Our Table Landon Dinner Plate
This minimalist dinnerware looks and feels similar to the Our Place plates and bowls. Similarities aside, I liked the look and feel of the Bed Bath and Beyond's Our Table dinnerware. It's sturdy, dishwasher-safe, and I didn't notice any scratches on the surface post-wash. The plates and bowls are available as a set or à la carte.
Should you buy Bed Bath and Beyond's Our Table products?
Absolutely. I loved every piece of cookware and dinnerware that I tried from the collection, and you absolutely can't beat these prices for the quality products you're getting. Plus, if you're a member (or have some coupons stashed away) you can save even more on these already affordable items. I won't judge you if you decide the asparagus steamer is too niche for your kitchen, but I can assure you it'll make your asparagus cooking experience almost effortless.
