A few weeks ago I spent a beautiful evening having dinner with a wonderful crowd of bloggers, stylists and journalists – we were celebrating the gorgeous kitchen ware from Eva Trio. This year the pots and pans are celebrating their 37th birthday and like other great Danish design, they are as contemporary and beautiful today as they were on the day they first saw daylight.
Ole Palsby is th genius behind the series. The iconic shape and the functionality has been known for generations. In fact I grew up with the Eva Trio series. My favourite pot was the tiniest copper pot. I remember melting butter init from an early age. I was not a big potato fan (my dad was – we ate a lot of potatoes) so a drizzle of melted butter helped me get them down.
At first glance the simple lines and timeless design stands out. But if you look closer you will find, that Ole thought of everything. The handles are not built into the pots and pans, but added on – this and the material it is made from is not a coincidence. By making them this way, the heat won’t transfer to the handle, so you won’t burn hands. But with a gas stove like mine, you do need pot holders.
The same functionality shows up again, when you are putting them away. They are stackable and the lids are flat and multifunctional, so you can use the same lit for more that one pot. All of this means that they won’t take up as much room in your cabinets like other pots and pans do.
I have had my eye on the white series for a long time. The pots are lined with a ceramic surface that makes sure nothing sticks while cooking – and they are easy to clean. In fact you can stick them right into the dishwasher – if you know my blog, you’ll know that I hate washing up, so this was a cherry on top! And they do look good in my kitchen, if I may say so myself.
Last weekend I decided to take my new pots out for a spin so I cooked up a big badge of creamy autumn risotto with chanterelles and Portobellos. I try to stick to a low(er) carb diet, so this was a rare treat. And it was good – what do you like to cook for autumn?
Choosing the right pan or pot for the right purpose can be tricky if you are not a chef or a food enthusiast by trade. To help all us mortals, Eva Trio has teamed up with the National Culinary Team of Denmark and together they have made a series of videos to help you choose the right pots and pans – check them out here.
