Alessi Apostrophe Orange Peeler


Eligible for International Delivery

Product information

Peel oranges in style with this orange peeler. Shaped like an apostrophe, its design is truly marvelous.

Alessi draws inspiration from Italian industrial culture to create unique, contemporary products. Collaborating with over 500 designers around the globe, Alessi believes that “a true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories…”

Born in Granerolo, Verbania, in 1916, Carlo Alessi studied technical design at the OMAR institute in Novara. At an early age, he worked in the metal workshop set up by his father, Giovanni, in 1921. In the fifties, he became managing director of the company, introducing a new international dimension, which he developed by working with external designers. He remained president of Alessi until 2009, when he passed away.

Q & As

Alessi Apostrophe Orange Peeler 4.9 5 9 9
Brilliant piece of kit! Does exactly what it's supposed to do, quickly and efficiently. If it could remove the white pith, it would warrant six stars. Good weight, and sharp, it cuts through the peel easily, even with my arthritic hands. 06 February 2014
Very handy Smaller than it looks but very useful, a good weight to it 14 January 2014
Original gift Bought for the people who have it all along with the walnut opener and a bag of walnuts. Didn't receive an acknowledgement...but I like it. 01 January 2013
Quirky stocking filler My children wanted to give a present to their dad that is a bit unusual so we bought this. We haven't tried it yet (much to their disappointment) but it looks and feels really good. I am hoping it lives up to its cool design! 29 November 2012
Lovely useful design piece. A sweet little orange peeler which works well and looks beautiful. It has a nice heavy feel for its tiny size. Recommended if you like useful items that are a little bit different. 16 May 2012
Really good design This is a great little design, good for its purpose and very attractive. 17 January 2012
Citrus at last I'd say this has been the most-used gift I received last year. I hate the feeling of peeling oranges with my fingers (similar to the effect of scraping one's nails over a chalkboard) and using a knife is inelegant and messy. This beautiful little peeler, which really WORKS, lives in my fruitbowl, though I could do with another in the kitchen for culinary use - not just oranges, any citrus. 11 December 2011
Makes eating oranges easier! Best peeler I've ever used and makes peeling oranges is now so much easier and cleaner! And a great stocking filler. 11 October 2011
