World baking day 2015

10 April 2015

Celebrate World Baking Day this year by reminding someone who matters just how much you really do care, by surprising them with a homemade cake on Sunday 17th May... World Baking Day is a chance for people across the globe to bake a little something to say thank you to a colleague, congratulate a friend or show some love for a family member. It promises to be a sumptious occasion, and whilst we all start prepping sweet-treat recipes here at the forma blog, we got thinking about our top 10 kitchen gadgets we just cannot live without... and here's the final countdown! 

Top 10 kitchen gadgets

Dreamfarm's Levoon
This has to be our number one kitchen gadget invention for 2015. Scoop, scrape, level and measure with this handy set of 4 measuring spoons designed to make life easier in the kitchen. A must have piece of kit for any budding baker!

Herb Scissors
Three times less effort than using a normal pair of scissors, this super slick set of 6 blades (at varying angles) produces a super light dusing of herbs, ensuring you achieve the desired balance for your dish everytime. We don't quite know how we survived in the kitchen before Sagaform launched this must-have gadget a few years back!

Mini Supoon (click here to view full range available at The Scandinavian shop)
The Mini Supoon is designed to measure, scrape and – for hygiene purposes - sit up from the kitchen worktop too. This super handy one teaspoon version of our Supoon has a flat squeegee tip and flexible sides, which make it super easy for scraping every last little bit out of a jar or container. We guarantee you’ll be hooked once you get your hands on one!

Cabanaz grey kitchen timer

We all need a countdown in the kitchen and we just love this fun design by Cabanaz, produced in homage to the classic bank safety deposit box.... only difference being, this time you get to decide the culinary combination! 

Produce smooth mash in seconds, then scrape the pot clean and serve with this ingenious invention by Dreamfarm. As you push down, the Smood's spring flattens which forces your potato through the thin gap in it's coils, creating smooth fluffy mash in just one press - voila! Easy as that.

3-in-1 parmesan grater
Measure out a perfect portion of pasta, serve when cooked to your liking and grate a genourous helping of parmesan at the table to add that all important finishing touch. This is one 3-in-1 we simply cannot survive without!

Garject lite (the coloured garject lites featured are exclusively available in-store from your Local Stockist)
When Dreamfarm confidently told us, 'this is the best garlic crusher in the World', we understandably had high expectations. And to be fair, even they were exceeded! Garject lite presses unpeeled garlic, scrapes itself clean and even ejects the peel. All the garlic ends up in your meal - not on your hands - but best of all, your garject lite practically cleans itself in the process.  

Aquaresist - 
the totally water-proof wooden chopping board
This everyday essential designed by Tescoma is made from three layers of durable bamboo and more importantly, can be popped in the dishwasher without warping. What can we say, this is our kinda board!   
From £12.84

BBQ Hamburger press
Prep a hearty home-made burger and sizzle to perfection this summer with our hassle-free press designed by Sagaform. Beers not included!

Now we cannot deny, there are lots of pizza scissors out there that do an average job of slicing the World's favourite Italian dish, but the Scizza takes things to a whole new level. Not only is a precision cut guaranteed everytime, the Scizza slices through melted cheese like a dream, so unlike most pizza scissors whereby your topping is dragged across the base as you slice, everything stays firmly in place with this gadgetry masterpiece.
