So what do you get the enthusiastic cook who has everything? This was the question that prompted us to have a good look at the Alessi designer range that essentially consists of amazingly sharp, good looking kitchen utensils, designed to be displayed prominently in the stylish kitchen.
While most ‘designer’ goods value looks over utility, we’re pleased to report that the Alessi range certainly doesn’t compromise in that regard.
