Designed by Frédéric Gooris with Fabrice Leclerc , 2012.
The Savon du Chef is a useful kitchen gadget featuring a shape which brings to mind the very reason for its existence: thanks to a natural property of steel known as redox, it eliminates the pungent smell of garlic and onion, along with the various odors that food sometimes leaves on your hands. Just rub the steel "soap" between your hands under cold running water for a few seconds and you'll have soft, odorless skin. The tool also acts as a nail-cleaner: the top part, smooth and not sharp, removes food residue without any risk of getting cut or of hurt. Made in 18/10 stainless steel.

Alessi is a family owned Italian design company, founded in 1921. Giovanni Alessi, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. He was later joined by his son Carlo who was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s and early 1940s. In the mid 1940s Alessi began to work with outside designers. The current Alessi catalog is the result of a collaboration with over 500 designers from all over the world.
"A true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories, to surprise, to go against the grain. From this point of view, design intended to conjure up images in people's minds, which makes them a bit happier, still has tremendous potential." — Alberto AlessiView other products from Alessi
