For anyone who cares about good design on a daily basis, this book is a bible. Essential Equipment for the Kitchen is a book about "ultimates"—the ultimate tools designed for the kitchen, from potato peelers to cheese graters—well-designed and beautiful objects that have superior performance and durability.
For Charlotte and Peter Fiell, good design is a key part of their lives. Experts in design who have written over 30 internationally bestselling books on the subject, both also believe that choosing to buy well-designed products is one of the most important strategies at our disposal in solving the world's environmental problems. "If you buy something that is made to last a lifetime", says Peter Fiell, "you get better value for money, more joy through its use and it's also the responsible way to consume."
