The Aalto Pot Guard is a kitchen helper that is successful by its design and functionality. The birch wood made lid leans on the design of Alvar Aalto: The waved lines are displayed in numerous Aalto designs and speak a clear, natural form-language. The Pot Guard works as -protector of cooking pots” according to its name. The wooden utensil is clipped between the pot and the lid and will with it enable that nothing inside of the pot comes out when it boils. The swung form thereby sits stabile so that the meal can remain alone a few minutes without any problems. Since iittala produces the Pot Guard out of birch wood, this one will not get to hot and can therewith be inserted or removed during the meal-preparation without burning fingers. After cooking, the Aalto Pot Guard can furthermore be used as pot coaster.
