Merging rustic French farmhouse with their iconic Spanish style, Zara Home have unveiled their new kitchen collection. The range pays homage to key trends including texture featuring acacia wood, teak and terracotta, whilst also flirting with inspiration from the Basque country.

Spanning cooking utensils, household appliances, textiles and accessories, Zara Home also features pieces from SMEG, creating the perfect recipe combining technology style and design.

With the modest collection launching earlier this week, here are our top picks we can’t wait to get our hands on:

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

Whichever style you like to adopt, this handy hourglass trio made of acacia wood and glass will keep track of the ideal cooking time for each type of egg. You’ll need three minutes for soft boiled, 5 minutes for poached, and 10 for hard boiled. Plus, get ‘oeuf’ to a good start in the morning with instructions scripted in French at the top of the set.

Whether you’re sprinkling parmesan on your pasta, or grating shavings of truffle into your scrambled eggs, a grater is a kitchen essential to inject fine flavour into your cooking.

Proving its worth, the detachable metal grate allows for easy cleaning, whilst the wooden component doubles up as a container.

Made from natural wood, the colour and appearance on each piece may vary, which means a personalised product in every household! Ensuring the longevity of the product , Zara Home have also provided a handy tip to keep the grater looking great with a kitchen cupboard staple – vegetable oil!

SMEG juicer, £129.95

Fill your home with the zesty scent of the Mediterranean with a trendy SMEG citrus juicer. With a stainless steel cone and non-drip nozzle for easy clean-up, the piece is a fresh addition to the home, avoiding sticky spillages associated with cheaper alternatives.

Available in both cream and black, the Italian manufacturer of upmarket domestic appliances have also added a matching toaster and kettle to their collaboration.

Storage baskets, £15.99-£17.99

A softer introduction to industrial chic, these iron storage baskets are lined with a removable and washable cotton cover features snap buttons for easy placement, securing the textile in place.

Use as storage baskets for pantry items such as pasta or rice, as a modern twist to the traditionally round fruit bowl or, to present morning goods such as hot bread and croissants to overnight guests.
