Whether you think it is the most wonderful time of the year or not, the festive period is undoubtedly busy for everyone. There are a range of Christmas kitchen accessories available to help make it easier for you to concentrate on the dinner – we have compiled a list of our favourites below!
Twist & Sprout
Whether you love them or loathe them, sprouts are a Christmas tradition that a huge number of households partake in. Cutting a cross in the base of each sprout ensures the centre cooks properly without overboiling and ruining the outside. This is a time consuming task, especially if you have a large family – but that is where the Twist & Sprout comes in. The handy tool has a sharp blade which is designed to remove the stalk and score to ensure an even roast or boil – twist a little further and the leaves will come away ready for a salad or stir fry. The best thing about this gadget is that it can be used well beyond the festive period so you can enjoy sprouts year round.
Professional Carving Set
With an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 on Trustpilot, the next item on our list of Christmas kitchen accessories is actually incredibly useful year-round. A quality carving set will ensure that everybody gets an equal share of the turkey, and should ensure there are no quarrels – as least until the roast potatoes are dished up, that is! With handles designed to fit comfortably in hand and a 25 year guarantee, this carving set is a must for any dinner table this yuletide.
Christmas Pudding Bin Bags
It can be difficult to enthuse about the clean-up involved with Christmas – after gathering all the wrapping paper, sorting out the vegetable peelings and taking an assortment of gifts out of their packaging, there can be a lot of waste to get rid of, even after you have sorted the recycling. Whilst they will not do the tidying for you, these novelty Christmas pudding bin bags may at least take some of the monotony out of putting the rubbish out – and you may raise a smile from your local binmen in the process.
Gingerbread House Cutter Set
Is there anything more festive than a gingerbread house? Complete with cutters for a gingerbread occupant and a snowman, this gingerbread house cutter set is our favourite of all the Christmas kitchen accessories we have seen. This set would be wonderful given as a gift, or it could be used to construct gingerbread houses to give as gifts – just don’t ask us how to wrap them! If you have children to occupy during the Christmas break, what better way to spend an afternoon? It comes with a gingerbread recipe so all you need to do is supply the ingredients.
