Yet for those customers who delve a little deeper into this department, a range of interesting, intriguing, practical and labour-saving kitchen gadgets awaits.
While the Bakers and Larners food hall is famous for its 17th century wine cellar, a host of accompanying wine drinking accessories can be found at the Holt store’s cookshop. High on the list of cookware assistant Chloe’s must-haves is the Corkcicle. “Thanks to the Corkcicle, your wine can be kept chilled and at the ideal temperature,” says Chloe. “Simply place into any bottle to enjoy a cool beverage – and a handy stopper ensures no spillage.” Perfect for alfresco dining.
But what food to accompany the wine? Fans of the Mediterranean diet are sure to take delight in the store’s rotage tool, which shaves any hard cheese to perfection; “Ideal for any Italian dish,” Chloe notes. For any cooking task, the correct utensils are essential. The novel ‘big fork’ kitchen tool is ideal for conveniently serving, carving and lifting roasted meats. “Of all the gadgets, the Avo Shark is by far my favourite. As a truly novel item used for the extraction of avocado stones, it is something to bring out at a dinner party to really impress your guests. It can also be used for other stoned fruit – one of a host of really useful devices in-store with a number of applications,” Chloe concludes.
