Design by Richard Sapper and Gualtiero Archesi, 2006.
The flambè pan is a metal utensil which is usually round and shallow, with sloping sides and a long wooden handle. The lamp is a tall, cylindrically-shaped utensil, composed of an alcohol reservoir, a wick burner and a grid on which to place the pan (or another vessel) for side-table cooking. The most noteworthy feature of this lamp (a spirit or alcohol burner, as in the traditional model) is its having been designed as a highly professional tool. In the first place, as flambèing is a very fast way of cooking, it is possible to obtain a wide, easily controlled range of flame, from very high to very low, depending on requirements. The reservoir's capacity ensures a lasting supply of fuel. The upper grid of heavy concentric discs can be used for other vessels besides the traditional pan. It is made entirely of stainless steel, giving it optimal resistance - a very important consideration given its use. The flambè pan, on the other hand, is made of heavy gauge copper with a thin layer of stainless steel inside. The handle is wooden, joined by a stainless steel investment casting. Special attention has been given to the design of the cross-section of the wooden part, so that it has a comfortable grip, and is safe and easy to handle.

Alessi - Italian Design
The Alessi company was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921 in Omegna, Italy. Giovanni, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and the home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. Giovanni's son Carlo, trained in industrial design, joined him at Alessi and was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s through the mid 1940s.
During the war years, Alessi produced stars for uniforms and mechanical parts for Savoia Marchetti airplanes. After the war, thanks to an enormous demand for brass ladles for the U.S. army, the Alessis expanded the company and started mass production. Carlo's brother Ettore, who joined the company in 1945, was the first to bring outside designers to the company, such as the architects Carlo Mazzeri, Luigi Massoni and Anselmo Vitale. Since that time, the range of products offered by Alessi has expanded to include such items as office accessories and electrical appliances, in collaboration with a growing range of contemporary designers such as Jasper Morrison and Philippe Starck, all the while maintaining Alessi's commitment to design and quality.
