  • Must Have Kitchen Gadgets

    Today’s kitchen gadgets range from the absurd to the ingenious but there can be no doubt that there are gadgets which have made our lives easier, and the food we cook in our kitchens more delicious!

    We’ve asked everyone at PAGAZZI HQ to recommend a must have kitchen gadget which they couldn’t live without either for its practicality or pleasing aesthetics. The five gadgets listed below were mentioned again and again.

    An classic, must have kitchen gadget for any domestic goddess (or god) is the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer. Originally produced over 75 years ago, these mixers have stood the test of time due to their appealing retro style and the high quality craftsmanship which goes into producing every one.

    The Artisan Stand Mixer is available in a multitude of colours of but our favourite is the icy blue.

    We think these adorable bucket and spade ice cream containers are a fun and novel way to serve ice cream to kids. This is a product which transports us back to summers spent on Britain’s beaches eating ice cream and making sand castles.

    We all know that we should be eating 5 portions of fruit and veg a day; however preparing fruit can be tedious and messy. That’s why we love gadgets like this pineapple slicer and wedger from Lakeland.  It comes with three adaptors to accommodate small, medium and large pineapples and allows you to create chunks, slices or rings in seconds. Lakeland also suggests using the left over pineapple shell as an exotic cocktail bowl!

    These cute yet practical Russian doll measuring cups would be a novel addition to any kitchen. The three measuring cups can be stored one inside the other saving space and looking lovely at the same time.

    Fans of Moroccan food will love this tagine from Lakeland. Tagine’s are used to create melt-in-the-mouth casseroles by slow cooking the food and allowing the steam to cool and re-condense into the food. This tagine not only cooks food beautifully, it also allows you to stylishly present your cooked tagine at the dinner table.

  • Displaying Spring Flowers in Your Home

    Nothing adds a refreshing touch of spring to your home quicker or easier than beautiful fresh cut flowers. Many people view their first sighting of tulips as a sign that spring is well and truly on its way, but tulips aren’t the only flowers that start to make an appearance around spring time.

    Rejuvenate your home with displays of cherry blossom, heather, roses, sweet pea and freesias, to name a few. Be creative with how you display your beautiful spring blooms to really make a statement.

    Here’s a look at some of our favourite ways to display spring flowers around your home.

    This gorgeous display of vibrant pinks, purples and greens in a simple bowl from Lavender Green would make a wonderful center piece on a dining room table.

    Haws have been producing great quality gardening tools since 1886 and their watering cans are seriously stylish. Available in a variety of colours from Garden Gifts Direct, we think a Haws watering could be used to display spring flowers beautifully.
