  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise 

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cornichons

  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice 

  • 1 teaspoon finely minced jalapeño

  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Don’t call us shallow but we love this low rider version of our original braiser in an eye-catching shade of lavender. Not only is it super versatile - use it for quick pasta dishes, soups, sauces, and so much more - but it also acts as a statement piece that will beautify any stovetop. Plus, the interior is coated in nonstick enamel to make cooking and cleanup even easier.

Lowkey Lavender Skillet

Cast iron is the secret to restaurant-quality textures: think crispy fried eggs, perfectly seared steak, and crusty cornbread. We love how it heats up evenly and lasts forever. Now we’ve leveled up our cast iron skillet with an enamel-coated version that’s finished in an eye-catching lavender color. The nonstick surface makes it easy to clean and is perfect for cooking eggs, pancakes, meats, and veggies. Also, the pan transfers to the oven seamlessly to finish off frittatas, pizzas, and more.
