Find the best fryer

Fryers are a great kitchen accessory. They're faster than cooking on the hob, their lids make them safe to use and they create less mess when cooking. Opt for the classic deep fat fryer or the air (health) fryer, which uses less oil.

Blitz with a blender

Choose between blenders or hand-held blenders, to breakdown and whizz together ingredients into smooth sauces or pastes. The different blades can create different consistencies, saving you aching arms.
How do I use a blender?
For softer ingredients, pop them into a bowl and use a hand-held blender to quickly blitz them together. For harder foods, fix one of the multiple blades and cover the attached bowl. Adjust the speed and let it get to work.
