Amateur chefs that increase in numbers each passing day, new cooks that resign their positions as bankers or senior executives to cook and attend cooking courses, those that say ‘I should open my own cafe’ and act accordingly… Today, passing time in the kitchen is indispensable for both men and women.
The increasing number of cooking programs on TV and the internet provide their viewers with a chance to both discover new products and to create new flavors.
Of course, the pan, apparatus, apron and all the other products that the cook uses becomes the other points of interest after the food he’s cooking.
Here – although I’m not a professional or an amateur cook – as a designer I present you with some suggestions for pleasant products that you might say‘I want this in my kitchen, too!’ and enjoy using.
I wish you a merry cooking with what I suggest or whatever is indispensable to you and sharing them with love…
Michel Bras Grater Set
Renowned French chef Michel Bras collaborated with Kai, the producer of Shun knives, to create a collection of highly effective tools that bring together the best traditions of French and Japanese craftsmanship. Made in Japan, this three-in-one grater features a variety of razor-sharp stainless-steel blades designed to tackle any grating task. The blades change out easily with a snap and click back in place as desired.
Alessi Shiba Sauce Pan
Saucepan in multiply mirror polished with double wall lid. Handle and knob in wood. The core of his project Shiba lies in the consideration that, at the end of the day, in your private life, you tend to use in your kitchen a very limited number of pots and pans compared to the traditional concept of cookware. So Naoto Fukasawa limited himself to designing only those that are strictly necessary, with his characteristic minimalist rigor.

It’s one of our greatest innovations— true steaming in the microwave! Steaming is one of the healthiest ways to prepare food because it retains nutrients, fatty acids and vitamins while preserving color, texture and flavor. And it’s also one of the most delicious, too! The ingenious design of the Tupperware® SmartSteamer blocks microwaves from cooking foods. Instead, microwaves are directed to the Water Tray below, causing the water to boil and the steam to rise for perfectly steamed foods.
