MAMI | Pasta-set By Alessi
Stainless steel pot / pasta strainer
Pasta-set in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished.
Cooking pasta must be impeccable, according to Italian tradition. For this reason, the designer Stefano Giovannoni made for the Mami series a pasta set consisting of pot and perforated basket, with a lid.
The Mami series consists of all the elements needed to prepare all kinds of delicious meals, just like in the kitchens of mothers back then. Indeed, the product line consists of large pots, casseroles and cooking pans of different sizes. Thanks to the magnetic base, the Mami pots are suitable for any heat source, including induction cooktop.
After "La Cintura di Orione" by Richard Sapper and "Falstaf" by Alessandro Mendini, Alessi entrusted a designer from the new generation with the difficult task of firing the public's imagination by exploring the archaic continent of “potness”. Stefano Giovannoni, whose style is an explicit reference to a poetry of affections, has brought his interpretation to ancient terracotta pots. Ah, the warmth of familiar aromas in good, big, round pots "with two ears" (as Catullus wrote), here made of functional and practical stainless steel. The “Mami” series also includes oven dishes and frying pans in pressure-cast aluminium with a non-stick coating, a pasta-set and a pressure cooker, as well as a cutlery service and superb kitchen knives.
