edo asparagus steamer with basket

Design Patricia Urquiola, 2017
18/10 stainless steel, PVD coating
Made by Alessi

Designed by Patricia Urquiola, Edo saucepans constitute a blend of different cultural references and formal suggestions. Edo is the former name of Tokyo and the reference to Japan for this project originates from a crockery set that Patricia Urquiola uses in her own kitchen. She purchased these saucepans in Japan, and their simple, graceful design was the source of inspiration for the Edo series. The name Edo also brings to mind the Latin term "edere", in other words "to eat", and it further expresses that encounter between different cultures that has inspired the entire project.

This series is also rich in the assortment available: Edo features multiple types of pans, available in various sizes and materials, so you can choose the utensil that best suits your particular kind of cooking. The asparagus steamer features:

- A high-sided, narrow, cylindrical pot with basket and lid. Made of 18/10 stainless steel. The pot and lid feature a polished exterior finish with a satin finish on the inside.
- The handles, which are welded to the body of the asparagus steamer, are made of precision cast 18/10 steel with a bronze PVD finish. TIG welding is used to secure the handles, ensuring top quality attachment and durability.
- This utensil is ideal for cooking asparagus. It enables boiling to absolute perfection. The asparagus is placed vertically inside the basket, leaving the tips pointing upward, outside the water.
- Once cooked, the comfortable handle on the basket allows extraction from the pot and easy removal of the asparagus, ready to be enjoyed or used to create one of the many dishes that contain this delicious vegetable.
- Ideal for asparagus lovers and for those who appreciate its excellent nutritional qualities. Rich in fibre, vitamins and mineral salts, no healthy, natural detox diet would be complete without asparagus.
- Dishwasher-safe

Patricia Urquiola

Born in Oviedo, Patricia Urquiola attended the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Madrid, where she graduated in 1989 having completed a thesis with Achille Castiglioni. From 1990 to 1992, she was assistant lecturer on his courses. Between 1990 and 1996, she worked with Vico Magistretti for the new product development office of De Padova and signed the products: “Flower,” “Loom sofa,” “Chaise,” and “Chaise Longue.”
Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombe, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
