Vintage is one of the most popular fashions of the moment and at Wares of Knutsford, we believe this is one trend that’s going to stick around. The new vintage kitchen items section of the Wares website will help you find vintage kitchenware to suit the look easily by grouping it all into one place. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a whole new kitchen to get the look – as long as you have a relatively neutral scheme, a selection of appropriate vintage kitchen items as accessories should be enough to style up your existing decor.
Vintage kitchenware for baking
Think back to your grandmother’s kitchen – chances are it housed a healthy number of mixing and pudding bowls in the style of the Mason Cash collection. These earthenware items are dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe and come in the classic cane colour or white and in various sizes.
Essential baking accessories that perform as well as they look include a classic set of balance scales – they may not look very high tech but you’ll be impressed at how accurately they measure. Similarly the stainless steel rotary whisk is a staple of many kitchens years after electric versions arrived simply because it works so well, along with looking funky. Wooden accessories such as spoons and rolling pins have natural antibacterial properties while a charming blackbird pie funnel will keep your pastries light and airy.
Having baked yourself into a frenzy with all this kit, the finishing touch to add true vintage style to your kitchen would be a ceramic cake stand. The single tire ceramic stand with a glass dome is ideal for large, round cakes such as Victoria sponges or chocolate gateaux, while the two tier stand will show off your fairy cakes, muffins and scones to perfection.
Enamel vintage kitchenware
Wares of Knutsford offers a large range of enamel vintage kitchenware, some of which can be found in our special vintage section. The Falcon brand of enamelware sold by Wares has been found in British kitchens from 1920 and is still going strong. Famed for their superior heat retention properties and resistance to burning, scratching and staining, enamelware is both a stylish and effective part of any vintage kitchen armoury.
Popular with cooks and campers alike, the traditional white with blue trim style will add a vintage touch to any kitchen. If you’re going for a softer look, there are enamelware items available in soft cream, black, red or blue.
