Made of Aramid, the same material used in industry to protect users from intense heat, these gloves are far more dextrous than oven mitts. They offer more protection than others we’ve tested too, as their extra-long cuffs prevent you burning your wrists on oven doors and shelves. Also useful when putting logs on a fire or in a wood burner.
No more burns with Pinny Pockets, created by an avid cook who kept burning herself when her oven gloves weren’t to hand. Not only did she transform the boring kitchen apron into something chic and stylish, she also added pockets that can be detached and used as instant ovenproof gloves. Simply lift them off with your hands when needed, then slap them back on the apron after use. Genius!
This rubberwood cheese serving board has a clever fold-out design that keeps three specialist cheese-cutting knives and a serving fork below. Each knife with stainless steel blade, there is one each for hard, medium and soft cheese and stilton. For the final and often the favourite course.
A stylish addition to any kitchen, the Thermo Pot has a coated stainless steel thermal casing that never gets too hot to touch. There’s no risk of it boiling dry, as it automatically cuts off, and if you don’t use it for 3 days it automatically switches off.
The healthier way to cook food such as sausages, bacon, chops, pizza and pies. Food placed on this silicone mat is suspended above the pan, allowing air to circulate and fat to drip away. Chops and bacon are juicier and healthier, baked potatoes and oven chips cook more evenly and pizza bases and pies stay crisp rather than going soggy. Silicone is also naturally non-stick, so it’s easy to clean up afterwards.
Just like those you see in delis and at hotel buffets, this panini toaster is the perfect solution for all those rolls and breads that are too bulky for a standard toaster. Two powerful quartz heating elements will warm and toast to perfection. Ideal not just for paninis but also thick-sliced bread, teacakes, bagels, baguettes, English muffins, pittas, croissants and crumpets.
Imagine using kitchen knives that glide through food, but never rust and will rarely need sharpening. These professional knives are incomparably sharp, with an exceptional cutting performance. The elegant ceramic blades are made of zirconium oxide, boasting a density and hardness only a little below that of a diamond, and cutting performance around 60 times that of metal knives. They slice with beautiful precision, while the soft ergonomic handles are light and comfortable to hold. The set now also includes a FREE ceramic peeler, worth £9.95. Made by kitchenware specialists Scotts of Stow. Hand wash only.
We weren’t expecting this ‘non-slip’ tray to live up to its claims, but when we tried it out we couldn’t believe our eyes! Cups of tea and glasses of water stayed obstinately in place even when we tipped the tray at an acute angle.
Frustrated by flimsy cling-film boxes with cutters that never seem to cut? New Wrap Chef is a permanent solution, guaranteeing perfect wrapping in seconds from any 30cm roll of film. Simply drop the roll inside the plastic case, pull out the amount you want, then press and release the cutter for snag-free results. It also works well with greaseproof paper and foil.
These handmade mugs have double walls of borosilicate glass that insulate their contents, keeping hot drinks hot yet remaining cool on the outside. They’re also attractive and fun to use, creating a ‘floating liquid’ effect when you pour in the drink. Ideal for serving coffee, tea or hot chocolate, plus they also keep cold drinks cool.
