News flash: All the pots and pans you’ve put to good use in 2020 (through the sourdough starter craze, mini holiday meals, and general stress eating) don’t have to be boring black. As Reese Witherspoon—who posted an Instagram Story of her making frittatas in a cerulean-hued cast-iron pan this week—just reminded us, your cookware can add color to your space just as a bright backsplash does.

Signature Enameled Cast Iron Fry Pan by Le Creuset, Williams Sonoma ($180)

The actor’s signature cast-iron Le Creuset pan comes in a wide range of colors, from rich forest green to burnt orange, ensuring that you can match your choice to virtually any palette. Even the bottom is coated in color, meaning it can double as decor when suspended on a wall rack (the handle comes with a hole for easy hanging), ideal for those with meager cabinet space. If that isn’t enough to convince you, Witherspoon’s cookware has two divots for easy pouring (no more sauce splatters!), as well as superior heat retention. 

Here are three other vibrant but sturdy choices we’d snap up in a second—two are only $30.
