Useful Utensils

These utensils are staples that I use regularly when cooking. They make my life much easier in the kitchen - I wouldn't be without them. Absolutely no useless gadgets, I promise!

Heat Resistant Silicone Hot Mats

£5.50

Measuring 18cm (7in) square these handy little mats are heat resistant up to 300C and are dishwasher safe. Soft, floppy and non-bulky they are invaluable for protecting worktops from searingly hot pots, pans and casseroles that have come straight from the oven or hob. I  use them as serving mats too.

They also prevent those nasty grey marks left on light-coloured (or wood) worktops and chopping boards from the base of pans and roasting tins etc.

Available in three fresh, vibrant colours - purple, lime green and shocking/fushia pink  - they are easy to store hanging from their in-built hole, or in a drawer when not in use.  Having said that, mine are in constant use and have never seen the inside of a drawer...

(N.B. Colours selected at random unle colours.)
