The Tools Series was created by Björn Dahlström for the Finnish design manufacturer iittala in 1998.
Tools is a range of pots and pans that serve a dual purpose: not only are they high-quality cooking utensils, but their stunning design and sturdy, oversized handles make them ideal for bringing your culinary creations directly to the table – no doubt to an appreciative audience.
The designer Björn Dahlström worked in co-operation with world class chefs and materials specialists in order to develop attractive, highly functional implements whose insightful features and impeccable construction lend themselves to a variety of cooking techniques. The Tools pots and pans are adequately dimensioned and therefore, they are ideal for big dinner parties as well as for everyday use.
The frying pans, grill pan and cast-iron pot have each been manufactured from the most appropriate materials for their function. The cooking casseroles have interior measuring scales and a compound multi-layer construction that distributes and retains heat evenly, while the new oven tray is a masterpiece of functional, appealing design.
Depending on the version, the cooking pots have a capacity of 2, 3, 5 and 8 litres, the casserole with lid has a capacity 0f 2 or 3 litres and the sauteuse 2.5 litres.
Readers of the magazines "Schöner Wohnen" and "Essen und Trinken", selected the pans of the Iittala Tools series as Top-products of the category "Pots" in 2009.
