Cook up a feast for your friends
They say a bad chef blames his tools. But grab yourself a few of these fantastic IKEA kitchen essentials and you’ll be all set to cook up mouth watering meals that get rave reviews all round. The three piece ÄNDLIG knife set is the ultimate kitchen staple, perfect for all of your chopping, slicing and dicing needs. Pair it with a two-pack of FINFÖRDELA chopping boards and a five-piece FULLÄNDAD utensil set and you’ll be ready to give your ingredients the star-treatment they deserve. And when it comes to lighting the stove, use your KAVALKAD non-stick frying pan for a wonderfully easy, energy efficient cooking experience. The only complaints you’ll be getting is that there aren’t any seconds!
Get your dining table dinner party-ready
At just 75p per piece, IKEA’s OFTAST crockery range is the ultimate bargain. Pick out four of your favourite plates, deep plates or bowls and grab a 16 piece MOPSIG cutlery set to go with them. Throw in four POKAL tumblers and that’s a stylish dinner set up for under a tenner!
Become a pro baker
A wonderfully therapeutic passtime, a sure-fire way to keep you popular among your peers and now a super wallet-friendly hobby, baking has never seemed so appealing. For another less-than-a-tenner haul, get yourself a BLANDA mixing bowl, a BAKGLAD spatula and some UPPFYLLD measuring cups, each for £1. With an INBAKAD cake tin, a MIXA wooden spoon and two RINNIG oven gloves, you’ll be giving Mary Berry a run for her money with your delicious desserts!
Keep a wonderfully tidy kitchen
There is nothing more satisfying and aesthetically pleasing than a well organised kitchen cupboard – and you can keep yours in tip-top shape with a few little nifty gadgets. The leak-proof IKEA 365+ food containers are perfect for storing your leftovers (if there are any!). And the BEVARA sealing clips will keep the contents of any packet fresher for longer, as well as preventing any cupboard spillages. Fill a couple of KORKEN jars with baked goods or brightly coloured pulses for an organisation hack that will make your kitchen look lovely too.
