Move aside Easter Eggs, one of our favourite parts of Easter Sunday is the lunchtime roast dinner! (Well, most Sundays to be honest) As the day is all about spending time with your loved ones, we’ve put together a list of our must-have kitchen gadgets that will make cooking hassle-free. So you will have more time to relax and enjoy the day, rather than stressing out in the kitchen. Keep reading and discover a range of cooking tools that will have you saying goodbye to lumpy mash and dry roasts forever.
Top 10 Easter Kitchen Gadgets:
Scoop up perfectly-crispy roasties or honey-glazed root veg with this nylon roasting scoop. One of our favourite roasting utensils that we use time and again, this versatile nylon scoop boasts a wide-headed design that’s ideal for dishing up your favourite veggies. Thanks to its anti-scratch and heat-resistant nylon design, you can rest assured that you won’t damage the non-stick finish on your coveted roasting pans. For the health conscious, its draining holes mean that any excess fat drains back into the pan, a win-win.
Make light work of carving your roast lamb this Easter with the MasterClass stainless steel spiked carving tray. Allowing you to carve with ultimate ease, this polished stainless steel tray features a series of spikes in the centre to hold your joint firmly in place. Thanks to its mirrored finish, it also makes a sleek addition to your dinner table too, if you really want to impress guests with your perfected roast centrepiece.
We don’t know about you, but lumpy mash is one of our greatest culinary bugbears. Now thanks to MasterClass, it’s never been easier to make smooth and creamy mash each and every time with this potato ricer. Made of heavy-duty stainless steel, this must-have kitchen gadget boasts a lever handle and extra-fine holes that eliminate pesky lumps. Although it’s amazing at making mashed potatoes, it’s just as good when used to make root veg purées, fishcakes, fruit sauces and much more.
Don’t struggle with hot joints of meat anymore! This pair of MasterClass oven forks lets you securely transfer your roast to the carving board, and then holds the joint in place while you carve. A real must-have kitchen tool for any roast pro, these forks are made from solid stainless steel for durability and are finished with tubular, satin-finished handles for a comfortable grip.
It’s no secret that the gravy can often make or break a roast, so make sure you’re winning this Easter by making your own delicious homemade gravy. As nobody wants greasy sauce, MasterClass has designed this glass gravy and fat separator so you can make the perfect gravy from your pan juices…without the fat. This innovative kitchen gadget is super easy to use too; simply pour in your chosen gravy or sauce, and watch as the unwanted fat and oil rise to the top as they settle. Made from heat-resistant borosilicate glass for durability, it’s also microwave-safe and features cup, fl. oz and ml measurements to assist you in the kitchen even more.
When your recipe calls for precision, an essential kitchen tool every home chef needs is this measuring spoon set from MasterClass. Move aside flimsy plastic ones, our 6pc measuring spoon set is made from solid stainless steel so you know it’ll last for many roasts and bakes to come. Attached via a handy split ring, these six measuring spoons nest within each other to save room in your kitchen drawer. This measuring set includes a 1/8 teaspoon (0.65 ml); 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml); 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml); 1 teaspoon (5 ml); 1 tablespoon (15 ml); 1 1⁄2 tablespoon (22.5 ml).
Wave goodbye to dry meat for good. This professional baster makes it easier than ever to keep your joint deliciously moist and tender while it roasts. It’s made from sturdy stainless steel and topped off with a heat-resistant silicone bulb for improved suction. Simply inject those flavoursome juices into your meat or poultry joints for a delectably succulent roast, time and time again.
Be the ultimate host this Easter with the MasterClass food warmer. Perfect for keeping your delicious roast and sides warm in the middle of the table, this stainless steel food warmer is powered by three tealights that effectively keep food warm or heat plates before you serve. It also comes in a smaller version that requires just two lights - perfect for smaller families.
Boasting a flat, even surface, you can rest assured that the heat will be distributed evenly, so you won’t need to worry about roasting hot veg on one end and lukewarm spuds on the other. Thanks to its heavy-duty carbon steel design, it’s strong enough to hold multiple dishes and it saves on energy as no electricity is required. Perfectly versatile, we’re keeping this energy-saving kitchen tool on hand for future parties, buffets and general get-togethers.
Whip up a delicious Easter feast without risking any painful burns or scrapes with these MasterClass double oven gloves. Heat resistant to an amazing 250°C (482°F), these cooking must-haves help anyone handle the hot stuff, whether it's roasting, baking or even barbecuing (weather permitting, obvs). Made from robust silicone for ultimate protection, these kitchen gloves boast a thick, fabric lining to keep hands comfy and thumbs for ultimate control.
Whether you’re a ‘medium rare’ or ‘well done’ kind of person, make sure your roast is done just how you like it with the MasterClass large meat thermometer. Made of solid stainless steel, there’s no need for guesswork, as it features an easy-to-read dial with ideal core cooking temperatures for beef, veal, pork, ham, lamb and poultry. Obviously, just adjust to suit your taste preferences. Designed with a sharp, steel probe that quickly penetrates the meat, your roast will stay more succulent as you won't have to keep cutting it open to check if it’s done.
What Other Kitchen Tools Will I Need?
Depending on your roast of choice, you can tailor your kitchen tool set. Our top 10 must-haves are to cater for most, but if you favour a veggie roast dinner rather than a leg of lamb, then change it up accordingly. Cookware-wise, it’s always important to have a reliable roasting tray, a selection of baking trays and a few different-sized saucepans that you can use time and time again.
