Heavy-duty and hard-wearing, this stoneware bowl has stood the test of time. It fits neatly under one (adult) arm as you beat with the other.

Made with tempered glass, these are five times stronger than untreated bowls. The ridge means you can lean the bowl on its side for a better angle when mixing.

An investment, but it covers a huge range of kitchen tasks. It includes a 4.5-litre bowl, a colander, sieve, a 1.65-litre bowl and five measuring spoons.

These bowls come in very practical sizes (1-, 2- and 4-litre) for making a cake, or for smaller batches of sauces. The snap-shut lids mean you can store them in the fridge or freezer.
