Kitchen VIP: the best 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 lightweight and 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. The cast aluminium range also includes a non-stick griddle pan that’s great for giving meat and veggies that chargrilled look and taste.

Stove-top starter kit: the best 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 stove-top starter kit. The user-friendly black aluminium pans are compatible with all types of cooker, 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 so you can keep an eye on your cooking and the pouring lips – a useful addition that means 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: the best 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 they make kitchen cupboards, pantries and open shelving look neat.
