We’ve all seen the delicious meals served up by Delia Smith and Jamie Oliver. But what do they use to make them? When it comes to your kitchen equipment and appliances, it pays to invest. Better appliances usually mean better food –but they needn’t be out of your budget. In today’s blog, we’re looking at some of the best appliances used by celebrity chefs – as well as top appliances recommended by our kitchen design experts.
The Great British Bake Off tent is always home to some of the best kitchen appliances. The tent is carefully kitted out with many top appliances, including the Neff Slide & Hide Oven. The revolutionary oven design features a door that drops down and slots away underneath the oven – making for easy access to perfectly-baked cakes. The Slide & Hide also has Neff’s famous CircoTherm technology – making baking and cooking quicker and easier as there’s no need to pre-heat.
Mary Berry herself has an Aga oven – known for its style and traditional appeal. The Aga’s not just stylish though, it’s practical too – helping chef up everything from tasty stir fries to tricky soufflés. It’s gentle heat cooking also means finer food – so you’ll benefit from lots of flavour and moisture in Aga-cooked meals.
Another iconic appliance favoured by the celebrity is the Smeg. Stylish and cool – it’s no wonder the Smeg has such a cult following.
Small appliances are vital in creating delicious meals too. For Thomasina Miers, Masterchef winner and chef behind the Wahaca chain, it’s the Braun MultiQuick hand blender that’s a kitchen essential. Although simple, she uses it for almost every dish – ensuring dinner perfection. Clare Smyth, on the other hand, the head chef at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, favours a more expensive appliance – the Big Green Egg barbecue. It makes cooking simple and ensures tasty food made with absolutely no stress.
Other popular appliances used by the experts include the Gaggenau baking stone – used by Raymond Blanc for baking the best bread – through to the simplest of appliances – like the potato ricer – loved by celebs like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
