Introducing Copper Into Your Kitchen for Christmas

I’m well and truly hooked on the copper trend and gradually introducing more and more copper into my kitchen. At first I worried that it would look odd, we have a silver sink and draining board, silver cupboard and drawer handles – would the copper stick out like a sore thumb?

Introducing Copper Into Your Kitchen

I’ve started by adding a few copper accessories. We have copper pans hanging down on one wall and more recently I’ve added a copper kettle* and toaster*. All of these copper accessories have a little silver on them, meaning that they easily and effortlessly fit in with the rest of the kitchen.

As well as being oh so pretty the kettle and toaster are also pretty nifty pieces of kit. The De’Longhi Distinta kettle┬áhas a 1.7 litre capacity allowing you to make up to seven cups at once (perfect for the busy Christmas period!), a 360 degree connection and an inbuilt limescale filter to improve the quality of your drinks.

The De’Longhi Distinta toaster is perfect for busy families, allowing you to toast up to four slices at once. The toaster has a variety of settings, even one specifically for bagels. The high lift function means that you are able to easily take the toast out, no more sticking knives into the toaster to retrieve your bread (as if I would…)!

This set would make the perfect Christmas gift for the copper mad interior lover, check out these and other Christmas gifts at ao.com.

Review : Sage by Heston Blumenthal Smart Fryer – My YouTube Debut
I wasn’t going to share this on here but I figured that I may as well, it may interest some of you.
A while back I was lucky enough to win the Sage By Heston Blumenthal Smart Fryer via ao.com’s Twitter. At the time of entering the competition I didn’t realise that the winner had to do a video review of the fryer (I really must start checking T&Cs!) and I’ll admit, I probably wouldn’t of entered if I had known this. When I realised I panicked, stressed, panicked and then stressed a whole lot more when it came to editing the video, which I haven’t done very well at all! 
I realise that I’ve not sold my review very well here, but if any of you are interested in watching it you can do so below or on YouTube here.
P.S. I am fully aware that I sound like a Welsh idiot!
