Got two of these little blue men recently both coming free with purchases over £20.00 (I think)
They come in a range of colours so there is a colour suited to most peoples kitchens I would think.
Really are quite good, especially as the hats are salt containers, so no more "Where's the salt?"
Brilliant idea that they come with spoons, so that everything is all in one place in the cupboard (no more rushing about to find a little spoon).
They look good on the kitchen table or on a shelf when not being used.
A big hint now they also look good on a breakfast tray!
Only downside though is that they are not dishwasher proof. (My dishwasher doesn't seem to like egg on metal spoons anyway, so I usually end up handwashing them anyhow.
A cheap way of starting an Alessi collection, but also a practical item, buy one instead of an Easter Egg, less fattening, but still nice to look at.
