Eggs are a definite staple of any home and do not require refrigerating. Keep your eggs within easy reach with the Wall Mounted Egg Rack. The Egg Rack holds a dozen eggs, with two egg shaped wall fixing points and comes in a either a black finish or an ivory finish.
We all have cookbooks, or some of us electronic versions. For those us that still love thumbing the pages, the Wrought Iron Cook Book Stand is a great way to stand up your cook book whilst keeping the required pages in view, by means of the drop down page keepers. Keep you stick fingers to yourself without the need to continually hold down the pages you need.
Fresh ground coffee is simply superb and beats instant any day. You can grind your coffee electronically, or my personal favourite, grind by hand. The Cast Iron Coffee Grinder is a wonderful gift idea for yourself or a family member. There are simple pleasures in life, and like popping packing plastic bubble, grinding you own coffee first thing in the morning or when guests come round will definitely put a smile on your face.
Forget churning and grinding. Press the juice from oranges, limes, lemons and more with the Cast Iron Fruit Press. You might say why bother when I can get an electric juicer. Electric juicers rotate and basically scour everything from juice to pips and pith from the inside of your orange. A press simply forces juice and very little else from the fruit without scraping the inside of the fruit segment.
If you want to get the most our of your herbs, spices, ginger, garlic and more then you need to press, grind and pulverise. A mini chopper or bullet will simply chop and not press that is why in Thailand and India for example, spices and flavourings for curries and regional dishes are pulverised by way of a pestle and mortar. A simple test is take a few garlic cloves, chope one set and then pulverise another set by pressing, squashing and grinding. You will notice that the aroma that is released via the latter means, is 100 times more fragrant than by just chopping. If you want to release all those amazing aromas and flavours you need a pestle and mortar, that is why I believe that the Gense Cast Iron Pestle and Mortar will be one of the best kitchen items you can buy.
The long handled pestle and bell like mortar work beautifully together. The bell shaped mortar means that ground spices will no ride up and overflow. The long handled pestle reduces the risk that you clunk you hand whilst you pound and grind. The bulb at both ends of the pestle means that you can pound to your hearts content with out hurting your hand whilst being able to easily scrape the sides down. Take if from me, if you wish to release all that your spices poses you need to press, grind and pulverise
