Celebrating 100 Years of Stanley Flasks William Stanley invented the unbreakable all-steel vacuum flask back in 1913. From the very start, they were designed to take the rigours of outdoor life. They’d be found on fishing trips, in the back of pick-up trucks or in the lunchboxes of construction workers building America’s early skyscrapers. Despite being scratched, dropped or kicked around, the Stanley flask would survive to be passed down from father to son, through the generations. Reissued as a limited edition, the Anniversary flask in classic hammertone green will give loyal service (and hot coffee) to today’s pioneers. Lifetime guarantee. ST12026 Stanley 100-Year Anniversary

We may all be celebrating the return of the Great British Bake Off, but it will have a while to go before it matches the success and longetivity of the iconic Tala brand. Established in 1899, the Tala name lives on today and has a special place in everyone’s hearts – venture into an antique shop and you’re bound to find a Tala measure or icing set sitting on the shelves of a vintage dresser. Made to last and just like the one everyone’s grandmother had.
HAVE YOU TRIED A CAKE POP YET? If you haven’t got room for another cupcake – or you’re keen to show off your cake-making skills – why not try your hand at cakepops?

At Steamer Trading, we’ve got everything you need to get baking. 30 great recipes and decorating ideas to get you started. ST12066 Cake Pops, from a selection of recipe books at SteamerTrading, £6.99

ANGLED MEASURING JUG
Great Tools for Every Kitchen
Ever tried to read the measurements on a traditional jug – without craning your neck to look at the side? OXO’s clever angled jug – one of our best-selling kitchen prep tools – offers measurements that can be clearly seen from the top, ideal when you’re filling the jug. Includes metric and imperial measurements. Dishwasher safe.
The design principle behind OXO tools was a simple one – if you’re going to make kitchen utensils that actually work, why not make them comfortable and easy to use, too? When OXO was founded, in 1990, many designers assumed that if a tool was for use in a real kitchen, it had to take the form of an implement that might be found in a professional chef’s armoury. It might work well, but ergonomics and design weren’t top of the wish list. At Steamer Trading, we were one of the first in the UK to discover and start offering OXO tools to our customers. They work well and are designed with every cook – no matter how skilled – in mind. We’ve now got a happy band of devoted OXO fans who wouldn’t look at another type of kitchen tool.

We’ve put together a selection of our favourites – so why not try a piece of OXO and see what makes it special? And keep an eye out for our exclusive hand whisk offer on page 50!
Garlic Press 3-in-1Adjustable Potato Ricer Potato ricers are the easiest way to make lump-free, perfect mashed potato. OXO’s unique design makes this clever kitchen tool even better! A rotating base gives 3 different settings: fine, for mashed potato, purées and baby food; medium, for hash browns, gnocchi or pressing water from cooked greens; and coarse, for tomatoes, egg salad or chunky apple sauce. Dishwasher safe. To make it even more irresistible, we’re giving away a FREE OXO Y-peeler (worth £5.49) with every OXO ricer bought before Christmas! ST12079 OXO Adjustable Potato Ricer with FREE Y-Peeler,
A favourite in any cook’s kitchen. The OXO garlic press features a large capacity garlic chamber suitable for even the largest cloves. It has a built-in cleaner and a sturdy construction that makes crushing garlic as simple as can be. Dishwasher safe.
Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer
Nut and Seafood Cracker
Ideal when you need perfect, even slices – right down to wafer thin – but don’t want to get out the food processor. The OXO slicer has three preset thickness settings and will grate over a chopping board or hooks directly onto a bowl. There’s a food holder to keep fingers safe while slicing, which also acts as a blade guard when it’s stored in the drawer. Non-slip handle and feet. Dishwasher safe.
This versatile tool is stong enough to tackle the toughest nuts, while the soft grips absorb pressure while you squeeze. It’s smart enough to sit alongside the lobster claws, too – and you’ll appreciate the non-slip grips when you crack open the crab! Dishwasher safe.

It’s got a comfortable, easy to grip handle – great when you’ve spent the morning baking. To sift, simply shake from side to side for a good even covering of flour or sugar.

These days, many of us are as likely to reach for a magazine or even go online for a recipe as turn to a much-loved cookbook. Traditional cookbook stands don’t always offer the flexibility to adapt to each of these. OXO’s stand securely holds tablet computers as easily as books or magazines, and has a splatter guard to keep pages and screens clean. Fold down the screen to turn pages and when you’re done, it pops away flat for easy storage.
If you’ve ever fiddled around trying to get loose leaf tea into an infuser, you’ll know immediately why this clever tool from OXO is such a good idea. Use the dry scoop to dip into the loose tea, then with a twist of the handle it forms into a ball, tightly holding the leaves. No mess, no fuss. It has a long handle, ideal for tall mugs or glasses – and is also perfect for herbs and spices. Dishwasher safe.

Separate attachments are available for ravioli or spaghetti.

The sleek, cast aluminium design of Savora’s ice cream scoop harks back to the heyday of elegant 1950s ice cream parlours. It’s practical – gently warm the scoop in hot water for easy serving of frozen deserts – and well balanced in use. When an ice cream scoop looks this good, though, you may find that the tub gets emptied a little too fast…
Savora’s rotary cheese grater deserves to be shown off at the table. It’s light enough to be easily hand held, but the durable, cast metal arm provides pressure where it’s needed. The stainless steel grater is easily removable for cleaning and can be switched for left or right handed use.

Savora’s garlic press features a sturdy construction and double-pivot design that makes light work of crushing garlic cloves. A handy container holds a spoonful of pressed garlic, while the base removes for easy cleaning. Uniquely, the Savora garlic press stands upright on the counter, ready for use – when it looks this good, why hide it away?

The Perfect GRIND Cole & Mason was founded in London in 1919 – and has been producing pepper mills since 1946. With over 60 years experience, their mills are very much at the cutting-edge of performance and design. You’ll find Cole & Mason mills everywhere from kitchen worktops to the tables of some of the world’s top restaurants - truly a British success story.
The Classic Swiss Potato Peeler Patented and largely unchanged since 1947, the REX peeler is still made in a tiny, familyrun factory outside Zürich today. With over 60 million sold worldwide, the Swiss are so proud of their peeler that they even commemorated it on a postage stamp. Fashioned from a single, comfortable piece of aluminium with a hardened steel blade, it is the quickest way to peel vegetables and fruit – and it’ll grate chocolate and cheese as well. More recently, we’ve introduced a julienne version – perfect for vegetable strips. Julienne Peeler

Gourmet Precision Mills NEW for 2012, Cole & Mason’s latest mechanism – Gourmet Precision – offers a real step forward. The pepper mills feature a hardened carbon steel professional grinder with spring-loading for even grind consistency. The dual action mechanism strips peppercorns before grinding them – releasing much more of the pepper flavour. Ask at any Steamer Trading and we’ll demonstrate the difference: it really is a taste sensation! The mills also feature an adjustable grind setting, with 6 settings from fine (ideal for even flavour distribution) to medium (suitable for gravies or finishing) and coarse (perfect for dry rubs and marinades). Cole & Mason are so confident of the performance of their new mills that they’ve given them a lifetime guarantee. ST12110 The Gourmet Precision

When convenience is a priority, electronic mills can be a real benefit in the kitchen. Keep one hand free to stir the pot, while dispensing precise amounts of pepper or salt with the touch of a single button. With a wide selection of obscure-branded electric mills available in some shops for little more than the price of a set of batteries, you could be forgiven for believing that the mill wasn’t designed to last any longer than a month or two. Cole & Mason’s electronic mills include a Lifetime Guarantee on their mechanisms – proving the old adage ‘you get what you pay for’.

A Revolution in Kitchen Gloves
Our top-selling Colori knives aren’t just about their eye-catching colour. Each blade is made from high-quality Japanese steel to ensure a razor-sharp cutting edge. Coating the blade with a colourful non-stick finish ensures that it glides more easily through foods without sticking – perfect for meats, cheese and fish and for carving the roast. Colour coding your knives will mean they’re easier to spot in the drawer, too – so you’ll always have the right knife for the job.
Kitchen Grips don’t look like any other kitchen gloves. They’ve been making their awardwinning textiles since 1985 – the same year we founded Steamer Trading. They’ve kept on improving their designs – and we think the NEW innovations for 2012 are the best yet. Kitchen Grips use a unique FLXaPrene (pronounced flexaprene) material. It’s heat resistant to 500F/260C – and can stand cold to -134F/-92C. The material is water repellent, so it protects hands from steam and liquid burns – even when wet.
Our favourite feature of the Colori is the innovative blade guard. The practical plastic sheath keeps the blade out of harm’s way in the kitchen drawer, the office lunchbox or even while out on a picnic. We’ve added a host of NEW Colori knives to our range for 2012. They’re great value, so why not give one a try?
By incorporating a raised surface texture, the gloves create even greater insulation between the hand and heat source, while also providing a better non-slip grip – perfect when you’re holding hot dishes. The most recognizable benefit of these amazing gloves is their flexibility. They don’t need to be extra thick to keep hands safe, so they’re much easier to wear and give better feeling for the task in hand. In prolonged use, you’ll find them more comfortable, too – they feel like a natural extension of your hand.
The NEW Chef’s Knife
Extendable Cuff Mitts These NEW mitts offer all the benefits of traditional Kitchen Grips gloves with the added versatility of fold down cuffs. Use them short for maximum comfort and flexibility, but when greater protection is needed – reaching into the AGA or grilling on the barbecue – just turn down the cuff for better coverage of arms.

Fill it with part soap, part water and the non-aerosol pump action converts soap to foam – saving up to 75% of the liquid.

Established in 1912, Fratelli Guzzini began life as a handcrafter of items from ox horn. In 1938 they introduced a range of household objects designed from acrylic – the first manufacturer to do so, setting a trend for a company who would go on to re-interpret everyday items, seeking to make them practical, distinctive and highly covetable. Today, Guzzini’s products have been exhibited in the V&A, MoMA and many other leading design institutions. This is a small selection from the range
