  • Nigellissima Saucepans & Pasta Insert

    I have just spent the whole afternoon catching up on all the episodes of Nigellisima, and have fallen in love with the saucepans she used in the series. Could you please point me in the right direction of where to get them (they are the stainless steel looking ones with the squared off handles).  

    I love Nigella's stainless steel saucepans and pans, they are the ones with the squared off lip/edge and squared off handles, they are being used in Nigelissima and have been used in many previous shows. Can you let me know the brand and where to purchase. Many thanks, Anthony.   

    Hi, I'm loving Nigella's new series Nigellissima and her new kitchen! Can you please advise where I can purchase the stainless steel colander that she uses to drain pasta? It fits the Iittala pans really well! Many thanks, Georgia.

    From the nigella team:

    The saucepans used on the recent Nigellissima TV show are made by Iittala and are from their "Tools" range. They can be bought in the UK from Skandium, either in-store (call ahead to check availability) or on-line. For international shipping try The Finnish Desighn Shop.

    The stainless steel pasta insert, used to lift and drain the pasta from the pot of water once it is cooked, is made by Le Creuset. The Iittala insert has been discontinued but the Le Creuset insert will fit some pans.
