We are fond of a bit of nostalgia here at Wares of Knutsford, and what could bring back happy childhood memories more easily than the humble mixing bowl? Many of us can recall standing on a small step in the kitchen, by our mother’s side, waiting patiently for permission to ‘lick the spoon’ after she had made a cake or pudding. Health and safety recommendations have no doubt changed since those days, and we do not generally encourage anyone to eat raw mixture ingredients; nonetheless, these mixing bowl memories are fondly treasured.
The Mixing Bowl
It may be tempting to think of baking as old-fashioned; however, nothing could be further from the truth, thanks in large part to TV shows such as The Great British Bake Off and MasterChef. Baking is as popular today as it has ever been, and your mixing bowl is perhaps the single most important piece of baking equipment in the kitchen.
The company behind the traditional pale brown mixing bowls is still going strong; today, it produces bowls in a variety of sizes. Mason Cash has even extended its mixing bowl range in recent years to include different colours and patterns on the outside. The bowls are just as tough and hardwearing as they ever were, of course, and they will give you years of baking service.
More baking equipment from Mason Cash
In addition to mixing bowls, Mason Cash has, over the years, extended its kitchenwares range quite substantially. Traditional pudding basins are ever popular and are available in a range of sizes. Just looking at the white pudding basins has made us all nostalgic again – this time for hearty puddings such as spotted dick, treacle suet pudding, summer fruit pudding and, of course, chocolate sponge pudding with chocolate custard!
Mason Cash’s range of traditional cane baking dishes has also grown over the years. These iconic dishes are perfect for both sweet and savoury dishes, such as lamb cobbler, cottage pie and fruit crumble.
One completely new line for Mason Cash is its range of terracotta dishes. From open casserole dishes to an authentic clay tagine, this range is ideal for anyone looking to explore some Mediterranean cooking. The range even includes a terracotta baking stone, which is perfect for achieving restaurant-quality pizzas. The range has been really well received by cooks and is definitely something to explore.
