Stockpots in 18/10 stainless steel, matte finish. Stainless steel magnetic bottom for cooking via induction, gas, and electrical resistances. 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. Manufactured by Alessi. Designed in 1999.
