Description

The Aalto Pot Guard is a kitchen helper that is beloved for its design and functionality. The lid made of birch wood is based on the designs of Alvar Aalto: The wavy lines are found in a variety of Aalto's products and speaks a clear, natural design language.

The Pot Guard acts according to its name as the "Aalto Pot Guard". The wood utensil is clamped between the cooking pot and the lid, thus ensuring that nothing is over-cooked thanks to the resulting space. The curved shape sits firmly between the pot and lid - so you can simmer the food in the pot for a few minutes. Since iittala produces the Pot Guard from birch wood, it does not heat up too much and can be used whilst cooking without burning your fingers.

After cooking, the Aalto Pot Guard can also be used as a pot coaster.

It's okay...

3 of 5 stars 2019-06-28, , Iittala - Aalto Pot Guard, birch wood

...but not the megahit either. As a guest gift - as mentioned many times - conditionally useful, since the layman who received the gift could think that he is worth only 1 Euro to the guest due to the lack of the Iittala lettering. The kitchen helper doesn't look like much more than that. ;)

Aalto Pot Guard

It is very practical to let a little air into the pot so that nothing boils over, but you can also take a cooking spoon instead... But it's prettier this way.

It's a nice little kitchen helper. You certainly don't "need" it in the kitchen, but it serves its purpose and is beautiful to look at. The quality is also completely in order.

What the hell is that?

4 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Iittala - Aalto Pot Guard, birch wood

Automatically translated from German

"What's this?" ask most people who see the Aalto Pot Guard for the first time. So far nobody has managed to find the "right solution" on their own - that's why it's a great souvenir when visiting friends and relatives. However, the Pot Guard does not really perform the actual function perfectly with all pots, since the edges of most pots are wider today than they were when Aalto "invented" the little kitchen helper.

Little helper

The small wooden part can be easily hung on the edge of the pot to prevent it from boiling over.

Beautiful (not so often used) kitchen helper

3 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Iittala - Aalto Pot Guard, birch wood

Automatically translated from German

It may be quite practical, but you get the same effect if you use a cooking spoon instead of a little helper... Why bought it anyway? - If you like Aalto, you'll buy "everything" someday... The workmanship is good and the motif is timeless.

Cute little pot guard

1 of 1 customers have found this review helpful.

When this arrived, I almost missed it among the other bulk stuff I ordered. It is very small. It's a good thing because that means it is easy to store. Also, it's pure wood unlike the other pot guards in the market which are mostly made of silicone.

Ingenious lid holder

73 of 117 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

The lid holder is very practical and fits on pots of different sizes. Because it is so small, this utensil does not take up any unnecessary space, but it is very practical and I use it all the time to prevent it from boiling over when the lid is slightly open. The wood is light, robust and has an interesting shape. Clear recommendation, perhaps also to reach the minimum order value.

Have it in daily use - very robust and practical due to its versatile use. Desing is very simple - for my taste the whole harness should be "thinner".

Nice small variation of the Aalto basic shape

Automatically translated from German

This little piece of wood is no bigger, just thicker than a puzzle piece. Even if its practical use might be rather small, it is nevertheless a nice little variation of the Aalto basic form. A mini gadget that should not be missing in any collection.

Price - Performance

88 of 199 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

Price - performance is right. Quite simple and partly rough worked, but very cheap. A real approach to saving energy, because the heat stays in the pot and at the same time overboiling is prevented. And of course the icon status! Do you need it? I needed it to come up with a minimum sum ;) Definitely too small for a trivet as advertised! Note dimensions!

But still rather impractical, because it is actually much too small. Perhaps suitable for a tea cup, but the vessel should not be much larger.
