In a perfect marriage of design + function, OTOTO released this adorable colander and ladle set. OTOTO, in Hebrew, means “any minute now”, and it speaks of their belief that something new and exciting can happen at any given moment. Well, obviously something did.
I love kitchen gadgets that not only do their job well, but also look good. This fits the bill nicely! Just look how cute they are!
Nessie’s cute design is also functional, the 4 stubby legs allow it to stand on its own on the counter, or inside the pot. No danger of drowning! You will never have to fish the handle out of a deep pot when it accidentally slips inside.
I just received the set I ordered after waiting for ages. It was totally worth the wait. My boys love playing with it, and it definitely injects a major dose of whimsy to my kitchen. I love having colorful kitchen accessories because they look really great against my white counter and white cabinets.
Nessie and her mom are available at SOHO Design Shop. All images from OTOTO Design.
They look so cute peeking out of the pot like that! Can the withstand high temperature?
Yes, Ceemee! I already used the ladle when I made soup yesterday. 🙂 Of course I had to test it right away!
