Cool kitchen aids

"You enjoy food shopping and cooking?" People usually say I'm crazy when I say this, but the answer is 'yes'. When my sister and I have time to spare before dinner, after one of our regular days out, we don't even have to say anything to eachother - we just know we're heading straight to the nearest supermarket to 'see what they have'. Feel free to call us supermarket crazies, we don't mind!

Shopping is of course a weekly trip. And I understand that some people hate it. Sometimes it can be a time-consuming job. Especially if you're doing the big shop on Saturday afternoon when everyone else is doing their's too. My top tip: avoid the supermarket at the weekend and do your shopping in the evening, three quarters of an hour before the shop closes. Also make sure you are well prepared: make a list before you go! This way you will also be less tempted to get delicious things you don't necessarily need.

"In the kitchen I go for simple, but tasty."

Once back home it is time to cook. Also a job that many people hate, but I don't! Maybe it's because I grew up in a family where food is key – my father has a catering business. But am I standing in the kitchen all evening, every evening? Not at all! I usually go for simple, but tasty. It doesn't have to be difficult. And with handy Brabantia kitchen aids, it's even faster. Ideal, right?

"Good kitchenware is half the work, so it's worth the investment. After all, you need it every day"


One of the most important tools in the kitchen is of course a sharp knife – this was the first lesson I learned from my father when he taught me to cook. Shortly followed by lesson two: let the knife do the work. And a good chopping board of course. There's nothing worse than a chopping board that has no grip or is too small! Luckily there are Brabantia's TASTY+ kitchen aids. All the tools you need in the kitchen in all kinds of lovely colours. If you find cooking boring, these cute tools will certainly change that. What about the cool, fresh green soup ladle or a dusky-pink spatula, for example? They make my kitchen look super cosy and they are also really convenient to use. The biggest advantage of TASTY+ is that many of the kitchen aids can do two jobs, which saves time, space and washing up. What more could you want? For example, there's a spatula with a built-in fork – handy for baking and turning over that one potato that refuses to play ball, a cake server with a cutting edge, and a soup spoon that you can also scrape the corners of the pan with. Handy, right? And remember – another wise lesson from my father: good kitchenware is half the work, so it's worth the investment. After all, you need it every day.
