The Picnic Time Herb Chop Block Set
Simple wooden chopping boards are the staple of a wooden kitchen. After all, they’re durable, match the worktops and you can certainly never have enough solid wood.
This rubberwood chopping board from Picnic Time is specifically designed for chopping herbs, and comes with its own double chopping blade that stores away neatly in the front of the board. A concave cutting surface means it is perfectly paired to the angle of the chopping blades for precise cutting.£72.99 from Picnic Time
KitchenArt PRO Adjustable Measuring Spoons
You may think there may be absolutely nothing wrong with a set of spoons – that is until you cast your eyes over the Adjustable Measuring Spoons from KitchenArt’s PRO range.
The set includes 3 different spoons / scoops that measure anywhere from ½ of a teaspoon up to a ½ cup size. They each have easily adjustable portion control and have well rounded sides to avoid spillages.£34.58 from Amazon
Musuntas Scrap Trap Storage Box
The precarious trip from worktop to bin can be fraught with danger. Avoid unnecessary mess with this ingenious little invention from Musuntas. The Scrap Trap is a handy little storage box for holding food scraps, peelings and other small items of waste until you’ve finished cooking.
It simply hooks onto the top of one of your cabinet doors, and includes a handy little scraper to scoop, transfer or clean crumbs and other food debris without getting your hands dirty.£12.99 from Musuntas
Joseph Joseph Index Chopping Board Set
It’s difficult to be truly hygienic in a kitchen, but having a full set of chopping boards to cater for all food types will certainly go a long way towards helping out.
The Index Chopping Board Set from Joseph Joseph is a colour-coded set with an index-style tab to allow you to easily select your required board – be it for raw meat, fish, vegetables or cooked food.£29.89 from Joseph Joseph
Simplehuman Steel Frame Dishrack
So often draining boards are a drab affair, or simply don’t look stylish enough to match your beautiful solid wood kitchen.
The Steel Frame Dishrack from Simplehuman matches a modern kitchen aesthetic and has been well thought out to include glass racks, a knife rack and cutlery storage. It’s also covered in a hydrophilic coating to repel water and residue, and was designed so that the water drains out of a single spout rather than directly onto the worktop underneath.£69.99 from Simplehuman
