Life isn't just about utility. If you are going to use a tool, like a roasting dish or oven glove, then why not use one whose form is as easy to appreciate as it's function? It rarely costs much extra and in most cases beautiful products work better than ugly ones. Designers who care about form pay closer attention to function too, it just comes naturally.
We love Tala because their products are drop dead gorgeous and a pleasure to use. The same aspects of their designs that make them more attractive also make them work better. I didn't see any finer quality or longer lasting cookwares anywhere when looking for suppliers.
Tala sell high quality products that, even if you can buy cheaper 'generic' alternatives from your local Asda, are the best value on the market. They are a friendly company too, still wholly UK owned, and small enough to care. That's why we stock their products and do so proudly!
