I have recently moved to a new country, so I had to buy many things, and especially those for kitchen. I’ve lately visited the Iittala store, which is one of the most famous Scandinavian design companies, especially for housewares, including ceramic and glass objects. I found two ingenious woodenware pot guards, one elk-shaped and the other with the Aalto design. They are not only fancy but also convenient. They can be placed between a pot and a lid to help steam to come out when boiling. If you cook very often, you know how they can be useful. Here are my new friends, Mr. Aalto and Mr. Elk!
