Kitchen VIP: cast aluminium cookware
A good-sized casserole dish and a robust roasting tin are key pieces of kit for batch cooking and crowd-pleasing weekend roasts. Our cast aluminium casserole dish comes in four sizes, from three-and-a-half to seven litres, and is a customer favourite for its hob-to-table good looks. The versatile cast aluminium roasting tray comes in two sizes – stick it in the oven to roast meat and veggies or use it on the hob to make gravy. A set of silicone handle grips makes for a sleek kitchen accessory and will help you move pans from oven to stovetop with ease.

Stovetop starter kit: aluminium non-stick pan set
Kitting out a kitchen for a student or after a housewarming gift for a budding chef? Our brilliant-value three-piece non-stick saucepan set is a great stovetop starter kit. The user-friendly black aluminium pans are compatible with all cookers, including induction hobs, so they can be taken from house to house with no compatibility issues. Customers love the helpful extra handle on the biggest pan in the set, the glass lids that allow you to keep an eye on your cooking and the pouring lips – useful additions that mean you don’t need a colander when draining pasta, veggies and so on. They’re easy to wipe clean but be sure to use non-stick-friendly utensils to avoid pan-ruining scratches.
Space expander: flip-tight storage
Decanting pantry staples into clear storage containers isn’t just for Instagram organisation influencers. It’s a practical move that makes it easier to see what’s in your cupboards, so you waste less, plus you can easily see when you’ve nearly run out of something. Our square and rectangle stackable storage container sets are customer favourites because they maximise cupboard space, come in a wide variety of sizes and make kitchen cupboards, pantries and open shelving look neat.

Stainless-steel pans are a robust choice, and this set comes with a 25-year guarantee to see you through many years of boiling, stewing and sautéing. Customers love the stylish looks, the useful clear lids, the helpful measuring scales inside each pan and the extra handle on the biggest one in the set, which helps with carrying when it’s full.
