The Always Pan (£125+)
Our Place’s range of cookware is a pastel dream. You can’t go wrong with their Original The Always Pan, i.e. the versatile 8-in-1 nonstick cooking pan.

There are plenty of add-ons you can purchase and other aesthetic-looking pots & pans.

Not just any regular waffle maker, but a 7-in-1 waffle maker where you can make traditional waffles, waffle cones, egg rolls, bubble waffles, doughnuts, etc. It can also be used as a toaster panini sandwich maker and is as multifunctional as it gets. The waffle maker is crafted with heavy-duty iron with a non-stick surface. Each of these plates is easily changeable and super convenient to use!
Smart Chopping Board (£359.29)
It does sound rather extortionate to spend £300+ on a chopping board. However, this is not just any chopping board. This is a 3-in-1 smart chopping board that includes an electronic scale, a grinding area, juice grooves, and a magnetic knife holder all on one board. As a recipe content creator, this certainly comes in handy in quickly measuring my ingredients to help document my recipes.
