The Top & Down utensil design comes from a place of absolute ingenuity. Think of it as a life-hack turned into a product. Simply put, the Top & Down utensil is a saucepan with a lid design that can double up as a place mat that allows you to rest a hot vessel on a dining table. The lid has handles that act as a resting point for the vessel once off the stove and on a table top. Clever, isn’t it?? I wonder why no one thought of making it mainstream yet.
The Top & Down utensil is a winner of the Red Dot Design Award for the year 2016.
