The art of mastering a mandoline is something that takes time, but when we tried out Kitchen Craft’s stunning master class set, it couldn’t have been easier to get started. As a keen amateur chef, you may be forgiven for never trying a mandoline, because it lends itself to those in the know, chefs, expert caterers and the like – however you need to change your thinking. The mandoline is one of the most precision pieces of kit you’ll get in your kitchen, and it’s a perfect step up from knife skills and a comforting improvement to electronic ‘do everything’ gadgets that really take the craftsmanship out of food preparation. Being able to precision cut fresh fruit and vegetables quickly, safely and to a high standard of finesse is just what you get when using this tool. Made for professionals and keen learners alike, the mandoline is made from hygienic stainless steel giving consistent results every time we used it. You can create your own show stopping garnishes, salads, and even home-made crisps taking your kitchen skillset to the next level. The best thing about the mandoline is the safety guard and the 7 easily interchangeable stainless steel blades. Definitely 10/10.

And finally, last but certainly not least there is an old Chinese proverb – “Talk doesn’t cook rice”. As we said, it’s an old saying. No longer do you have to slave over a pan of rice for half an hour worrying that you’ve got too little, or too much rice. With Kitchen Craft they have taken all of the stress out of rice cooking and you can even have a choice between fluffy or sticky rice with their fabulous 1.5litre microwave rice cooker. It cleverly combines microwave technology with traditional oriental cooking for quick and easy rice cooking in the microwave. Steam circulation means food is heated evenly whilst maintaining moisture.
