Alessi PSJS Juicy Salif Lemon Squeezer

The Alessi juicy salif lemon squeezer is simply  a perfect design.  One of the first Philippe Stark designs for Alessi in 1990, it has since featured in many kitchens, as a subject for books and even on university syllabuses as an example of aesthetic design and form and function.

However, this iconic design is not only beautiful but also a functional kitchen item.  It sits at a perfect height, to place a cup or measuring jug beneath and collect the large amount of lemon juice that this gadget can produce.  Also very easy to use because of it’s weight and the small gripping pads on it’s feet that gives stability on the counter-top.

An eye catching addition to any kitchen and a true object of desire.

Alessi Apostrophe Orange Peeler

When you first see this curvy “apostrophe” in matt stainless steel, you can not guess what it is used for, however, it is a clever little gadget that makes peeling your orange both easy and fun.

The point part of the “apostrophe” pierces the orange peel and easily slices the peel and pith away from the flesh, without damaging the juicy fruit below.

“…A wonderful little piece of sculpture, Alessi style…looks wonderful as an ornament…works to leave your orange with a lovely pattern on it or actually peel it…One for any Alessi lover!”

 

This funky kitchen accessory would make an ideal gift at Christmas or a Birthday for a fruit lover.

Alessi ice cream bowlAlessi “Big Love” Ice Cream Bowl

These pretty fairytale ice cream bowls and heart shaped spoons are very clever, because the lining of the bowl is stainless steel that can be removed and put in the freezer to chill, which will keep ice cream cold longer.  Ideal for parties.

“…these gorgeous bowls from Alessi are just divine, and they are first class quality. The Heart Shaped spoons are so cute. I absolutely love them”

 

Available in a range of ice cream sundae colours blue,green,pink and orange

Eva Solo Funky Kitchen Accessories

Eva Solo Stainless Steel Garlic Press

This is a very funky little gadget that both contains and slices garlic.  With most garlic presses the garlic clove is pushed through small holes and is a nightmare to clean as the bits of garlic pulp get stuck in the holes.  With the Eva Solo garlic press cleverly slices the garlic through easy clean slits.

The designers of this garlic press, Claus Jenson and Henrik Holback, have won several design awards for revolutionary design, such as the Formland award in 2001.

When the garlic press sits on the kitchen counter top it humorously looks like a garlic bulb, adding a touch of style to any kitchen scheme.

“…This garlic press is very elegant, heavy and does a perfect job. It looks great in the kitchen, stylish, unique and modern…easy to clean and use, you don’t have to worry about garlic getting stuck in holes…”

 

All parts are dishwasher safe.

Normann Copenhagen Kitchen Accessories

Normann Copenhagen Cognac Glasses, Set of 2

What do you buy the man who’s got everything?

The most stunningly designed Cognac Glasses, designed by Rikke Hagen for Normann Copenhagen, who explains his inspiration as:

“…I wanted to craft a cognac glass. The perfect gift to the man, who has everything. The inspiration springs from my own perception of when you drink a cognac; that is when you have time and in calm surroundings. I wanted the glass to give the user a feeling of a gentleman’s study and at the same time, the sense of calmness you get when you e.g. fondle a stone. The stem kept irritating me. I took the consequence and cut it off. That’s how my Cognac glass was born”        (Rikke Hagen)

These cognac glasses can also be used as clever decoration, maybe as a table centre piece, with a single Gerbera bloom. Or a smart way to serve individual desserts at a dinner party, jelly would look cool set in these glasses.

Funky kitchen accessories can add the finishing touch to a stylish and sociable kitchen, and although at first look they appear to suit a modern kitcchen scheme more, I think some funky kitchen accessories, such as the Eva Solo Garlic Press would look great in a modern farmhouse scheme.
