Top 5 tasty picks from middle of Lidl kitchenware
Add Lidl’s affordable range of kitchen appliances and baking utilities to your shopping list
It’s officially week 2 of the Great British Bake Off, and the contestants are in full swing having tackled the technical challenge of producing less than cherubic Angel cakes, with the signature challenge certainly turning some souls as nutty as a fruitcake!
Silvercrest Digital Spoon Scale, £4.99
Put down the bulky kitchen scales and get to grips with the Silvercrest Digital Spoon Scale.
This portable kitchen tool is great for measuring oil, spices, milk and more allowing you to measure up to 300g in 0.1 increments and unleash your star baker!
Whether you’re a stickler for imperial instructions or a master of the metric measurement, don’t sweat, because the spoon supports both grams and ounces. The gourmet gadget is perfect for measuring out small amounts holding up to 15-45ml or 1-3 tablespoons and has an automatic shut-off, retaining (hold) and zeroing (tare) functions.
If creating a storm in the kitchen has got you feeling a little domestic damsel in distress, the detachable, dishwasher-safe spoon is a one way trip to clean-up Kansas (Just remember, there’s no clicking of heels, but a press of dishwater programme button may suffice!)
The clear LCD display also has a low battery indicator, so you’ll never be without your new favourite tool. And what’s more, the spoon already comes included with batteries, so no trips on the yellow brick road (or local retail park) to grab them.
Silvercrest Stand Mixer, £49.99
Master your favourite recipes from the show with this versatile kitchen gadget that’s great for kneading, mixing and whisking.
Far from just sitting pretty, the mixer has a tilting head with release button for easy accessory change as well as a dough hook, splash guard, whisk and flat beater with Teflon® non-stick coating.
A potent piece of kit for one’s kitchen reportoire, the stand mixer is powered by a 600W motor, eight speed settings and has a large, removable 5 litre stainless steel mixing bowl – perfect for practicing your own showstoppers.
With a glossy finish, the stand mixer comes in two tasty colourways we’ve likened to black liquorice and mint choc chip ice-cream.
Again, for easy clean up, the parts are completely dishwasher-safe and for reassurance comes with a 3-year warranty.
Ernesto Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls, £5.99 (2 pack)
With practical grip edge and non-slip base, these dishwasher safe bowls hold 2-3.5 litres respectively and should be a staple in every home.
Ernesto Silicone Baking Mats, £4.99 (2 pack)
A reusable alternative to greaseproof paper, these silicone baking mats are perfect for rolling out dough, and will come in handy with this week’s biscuit week theme.
Made from flexible, heat-resistant platinum silicone, these mats are oven safe up to a scorching 250ºC. With a practical measuring scale, these should be in all good biscuit bakers’ repertoire to ensure consistency and that perfect snap our critics crave.
Dishwasher safe, these mats get the Hollywood handshake from us, when it comes to cleaning up.
Ernesto Cake Tins, £3.99 each
High-quality with an ILAG® non-stick coating, these cake tins allow you to easily remove your cake and clean the surface, avoiding those sofa-pinching, sticky moments we’ve seen so far on the programme.
With a choice of round fluted, (best for a Bundt), Springform (the go-to choice for cheesecakes) and loaf cake (in classic lemon drizzle style) the trio are a steal for under £12.
