A cucina essential in Italy, tongs are ideal for gently seizing pasta strands and transferring them to a pan of sauce with a splash or two of starchy cooking water – the secret to a thick, glossy finish.
The “502” Spaghetti Tongs, designed by Ufficio Tecnico Alessi, is one of Alessi's most popular products. Legend has it that Carlo Alessi designed this object behind his father Giovanni's back. Giovanni didn't like the idea, so Carlo had to get the engineers to work at night to make it.
This limited edition version of Alessi’s Spaghetti Tongs for Pasta Evangelists is a reminder of the beauty that comes from devotion to a dream.
PERFECT FOR: Lifting pasta and tossing it with sauce.
TOP TIP: Always take care to lift your pasta from the cooking water a minute or two early so as to maintain a firm bite and prevent tears.
