  • The Redman bottle opener - made in Wales

    Redman bottle opener Redman (nicknamed the 'hold-up' for his submissive stance) is a product of the team at Conka Design that has captured the imagination of many people. With consideration for sustainability, the packaging of the Redman is made from recyclable cardboard - and includes a nifty cutout beermat! This sturdy chap can even open two bottles simultaneously (see the youtube video).
    Conka Design was founded by Chris Facey, Daniel Ashman, Dave Poole and Mark Hodge, following the completion of their product design course at the University of Glamorgan. They undertake product design commissions from around the world as well as producing their own products. The team have further plans for the Redman, so you may see him undertaking household tasks other than bottle opening!

  • Zack Astello kitchen roll holder - customer review

    Thanks to LH from the United Kingdom for the following review:

    Kitchen roll holder I have just received the 'Astello kitchen roll holder' (short version) and have to say that the product is nothing short of SUPERB!. Extremely well packaged and made to an even higher standard. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!! To potential other customers, this product is very sleek and elegant and will fit in tremendously well to any kitchen, whether tradiitonal or modern in design.

    Product arrived within just two days via Royal Mail first class post (recorded delivery). I cannot emphasise enough how well-made this wall mounted kitchen roll holder is. Although more expensive than many similar products, it delivers in quality alone - TWICE ITS ASKING PRICE. In summary, this is a very worthwhile investment. The product is made of high grade stainless steel which is very apparent as soon as the box is opened. There is an immediate detection of HIGH QUALITY - FIRST AND FOREMOST.

    In addition, all necessary accessories are supplied with this product (screws, etc.) and individually packaged within the box.

    TREMENDOUS!!!!!!!!

  • Coming soon - the multi kitchen roll holder from Zack

    multi kitchen roll holder Originally due for release in November, production of Zack's Combo multi-roll holder has sadly been delayed. Judging by advance interest, these are likely to disappear as soon as they arrive on the shelves. It's not surprising - the usual sleek styling from Zack in brushed stainless steel, coupled with neat functionality makes the Combo a great addition to any kitchen. Delivery is now expected during January - we'll post here once they are available.

  • Alessi - what's in a name?

    In the spring of 2006, Alessi, the Italian Design Factory, re-classified its large product range into three sub-brands. Quoting from the Alessi site:

    Officina Alessi welcomes the most challenging and refined products with delicate elegance, often crowning projects by internationally renowned authors...
    Alessi is the main and the most traditional brand, expressing quality, technology and design...
    A di Alessi is comprised of magic forms, colours, and materials, products which are more accessible to a larger public at decisively lower prices, and always with the mark of excellence.

    As a retailer or a consumer, I'm not sure the distinction helps me very much. I can see the A di Alessi branding - the fun and functional products like the Dozi hedgehog paperclip holder or Mr Cold, the drippy-nosed soap dispenser.

    When it comes to the Alessi and Officina brands, however, I find it harder to make the distinction. Where do those design classics, such as the Juicy Salif or Michael Graves' Bird-Whistle kettle belong?

    Ultimately it doesn't really matter. Alessi products across all the sub-brands share the same attention to detail and design aesthetic. With so many products there's sure to be something for everyone to love!

  • Cooking Good!

    A relative newcomer to the UK market, Gastroguss cookware is something a bit special. The manufacturer, AMT Gastroguss, is outfitter and sponsor of the German National Culinary Team (imagine a row of chefs on starting blocks). You don't need to be a competitive cook, however, to appreciate the quality of their products. Each piece is individually cast in aluminium, then coated by blasting with titanium particles at supersonic speeds using a patented process. The result is a non-stick surface, without the use of Teflon, that is hard-wearing and durable.

    I first encountered Gastroguss about 2 years ago when I bought the square griddle pan. At the time, the shop assistant told me that I would be back for more - and she was right! Two weeks later I was back for a set of saucepans and frying pans. Confirming their hard-wearing properties, they have withstood my assaults with metal forks, spoons and spatulas. I have managed to mark them, it's true, but they retain their non-stick properties. It is recommended that you don't put these in a dishwasher (which I haven't) but cleaning with some soapy water is so easy that it isn't a chore.

    If you are looking for quality cookware you should check out the Gastroguss range (they also have models suitable for induction hobs). Be warned, though, these pans may be made of aluminium but they are not light!
