Our Recommended Products

We believe that good quality cookware is the cornerstone of the efficient kitchen. Cookware should be functional, multi-purpose (so no cluttering up of the kitchen) and of sufficient quality to ehance the cooking experience. We are often asked for a list of "essentials" and we will be compiling this shortly. In the meantime products can be sourced from the following:-

1) The Sticky Mitts Shop. We offer a small range of products that we use in our classes. Our favourite is the Woll Nowo Saute Pan. Either the 28 cm (3.5 litre) for families or the 20 cm for students. Remember that postage and packing is free on all the products in our shop.

2) Head Cook & Bottlewasher. A long established company. We have bought numerous products from them over the years and can vouch for their excellent service. Unlike some internet based shops you will always find someone knowledgeable and helpful at the end of the phone. They offer a range of best-in-class brands at competitive prices and have over 2,500 products, some of which are dificult to find. They are also more than happy to source unusual products for customers.

Our favourite range of bakeware is from Alan Silverwood Ltd. which is a family firm based in Birmingham. They have won numerous awards for the quality and design of their products. No more buckling in the oven or flaking non-stick coatings!  This is the bakeware we use in class and can testify to the perfect condution of heat, even cooking and reducing cooking times.

3) Pampered Chef.  The premier direct seller of essential kitchen tools. We regularly host Pampered Chef Cooking Shows so that guests can learn time-saving techniques, sample great tasting, easy-to-prepare recipes and try out products before buying.
