Any Sex and the City fan knows Carrie Bradshaw's kitchen has very rarely been used to cook. Over the six seasons of the original series and two post-finale movies, her oven has famously been used as extra closet space, not for making dinner. So, it's safe to say it was an exciting surprise when we saw one of our community's favorites—this bright yellow Dansk Købenstyle Saucepan—on her stove in the Season 2 premiere of And Just Like That....

That's right, the charming saucepan our community and cookware collectors have adored for years officially made its debut in the Sex and the City cinematic universe. In an effort of “repurposing” her kitchen, Bradshaw is seen poaching an egg in the instantly recognizable saucepan. Stirring, she jokes, “Did you know stoves aren't just for storage?”

Dansk has been creating cookware and cutlery since 1954. Until the early 1980s, Dansk's designs were created by the Danish sculptor Jens Quistgaard. Pieces under the Dansk name are known for their mid-century aesthetic and bright, bold color palettes, and have been a favorite among collectors and home cooks ever since.

This saucepan, in particular, is a best-seller in our Shop, thanks to its status as a multi-functional cookware staple. Its lid doubles as a trivet, it's durable enough to last decades, and it's a uniquely beautiful piece you'll want to have out on display.

No wonder the famously fashionable Bradshaw has this iconic, stylish ware on her stove.

I received this Dansk pan for my wedding 35 years ago and it was the best pan! We lost it in a move and I was so bummed. it was the perfect size and always looked great on the table. Buying a replacement!
