Five of the Best: Butter Dishes

They might be more of a traditional kitchen item than a worktop essential – but that doesn’t mean that a butter dish can’t enhance your cooking area or dining space! If you’re going to take the plunge then you might as well go for something a bit more interesting than an orthodox white ceramic number, so to help you we’ve picked out our five favourite butter dishes, ready to brighten up your kitchen and house (some of) your dairy at the same time.

Melamine Ship Shape Butter Dishes by Alessi

Melamine Ship Shape Butter Dishes – £40, Alessi

Easily recognisable as an Alessi objet, thanks to its bright colour as well as the sense of fun it conveys, Ship Shape is a butter dish designed by Stefano Giovannoni. Made from sturdy melamine, it has a translucent yellow base and a solid yellow top: and a white palette knife (with stainless steel blade), for spreading your butter, sticks out of the ship’s ‘funnels’ at the top! This witty piece is also available in an attractive green colour.Le Creuset Butter Dish Cassis

Butter Dish in Cassis – £21.60 (was £27), Le Creuset

If you’re a fan of the French cookware specialists – and who isn’t? – then you’ll recognise this shade not as purple but as cassis! The Le Creuset butter dish may not be dishwasher or microwave-safe, but it’s still hugely popular and made from quality stoneware and will match perfectly with everything else in the range – from your pans to your roasting dish! It’s also available in all of the other well-known colours in the range (ours is in volcanic!).

Anthropologie Painted Amaryllis Butter Dish

Painted Amaryllis Butter Dish – £18, Anthropologie

We’re so happy to see the homeware brand Anthropologie land its eclectic but always interesting wares at John Lewis and this painted Amaryllis butter dish is no exception. Painted in a bold floral design – in shades of red, green, yellow, black, blue and pink – it’s made from a dishwasher and microwave-safe stoneware (take that, Le Creuset!) and is part of an exquisite range that includes a matching rolling pin and cheese board.

Stir It Up Butter Dish

Stir It Up Butter Dish – £12.99, Robert Dyas

Never mistake your butter for anything else ever again! This Stir it Up butter dish from Robert Dyas is made from a cream-coloured ceramic and is clearly labelled on the side in a distinctive black font. A classic wooden lid – in the same pleasing oblong shape as the base – sits on top, making this a smart addition to the company’s range which includes containers for sugar and tea as well as teapots and aprons.

Glass Butter Dish from Dunelm

Glass Butter Dish – £11, Dunelm

Sometimes simple is best – and this clear glass butter dish is extremely practical thanks to its transparency, which means you can see how much spread you’ve got left, as well as the state it’s in! This heavy piece of kitchenware also has an inner section large enough to contain a whole block of butter, eliminating mess. At just a shade over a tenner, it’s a real bargain, too!

Brightly-coloured Hard Shell Cabin Suitcases

Though the holiday season is long gone, travel (especially if you’re lucky) happens all year round – but, when it’s slightly off-season, there’s always scope for a bargain or two. Today we’re looking at brightly-coloured hard cabin suitcases. Buy one of these (they’re all on sale, of course!) and you’ll thank us when you can pick your vibrant luggage out from all the pedestrian black and navy blue baggages that pass you by!

Hot Tuna Rainbow Suitcase in Orange

Rainbow Suitcase in Orange – £37.99 (was £74.99), Hot Tuna

We begin with the bright orange version of the Hot Tuna rainbow suitcase, which has a hard outer case and fastens around the edge with a large black main zip fastening compartment. Four caster wheels make for easy transportation, and the extendable telescopic handle – along with carry handles at the sides and top – mean it’s easy to pick up if you so wish. A TSA combination lock means you don’t need to worry about security.

Paul Frank Lime Cabin Case

Lime Cabin Case – £59.95 (was £64.95), Paul Frank

As if holidays weren’t cause for celebration, who wouldn’t be cheered up by this fantastic lime green Paul Frank case? Despite being sturdy, it’s lightweight and cabin-friendly – perfect for smaller trips. It has four swivelling wheels and a retractable tow handle (as well as a top carry handle) whereas the interior houses a zipped section and a retaining strap for your clothes. A combination lock is included with this case.

Linea Shell 4 Wheel Red Hard Cabin Suitcase

Shell 4 Wheel Red Hard Cabin Suitcase – £50 (was £89), Linea

Linea’s cabin suitcase is bright without being over-the-top, with a bright red exterior finished off with black edging and protective corners. A spacious design, it has an expander system that means it opens out further to provide 25% more extra capacity should you require it. Its push-button trolley handle, couple with four smooth wheels, means it’s easy to carry around.

Antler Juno B1 4-Wheel 56cm Cabin Suitcase, Turquoise

Juno B1 4-Wheel 56cm Cabin Suitcase, Turquoise – £108 (20% off), Antler

If you’re looking for an elegant suitcase in a distinctive hue, Antler’s Juno suitcase will fix the bill. It’s built to be super-strong and light, thanks to its polypropylene shell, and has four multi-directional wheels. A combination lock on the case’s side provides security, whereas its fully-lined interior is easy to organise thanks to its zipped full-length mesh pocket and elasticated packing straps.

Myleene Klass Flower Print Cabin Case

Myleene Klass Flower Print Cabin Case – £49.99 (was £59.99), Very.co.uk

Part of the Myleene Klass travel collection, this flower print case is covered in a pattern featuring blooms in pink, orange and white. Its strong shell is made from a polycarbonate mix that’s lightweight as well as strong and it has a 30-litre capacity so there’s plenty of room for all you will need to carry. Four wheels and handles at the top and sides ensure it’s easy to carry, and a combination lock keeps it safe.

John Lewis Drift 3-Seater Dining Bench in Cream

Its frame is made from a combination of solid oak and oak veneers and features dovetail joints. The surfaces of this stylish piece has been lightly oiled in order to show off as well as protect the natural grain of the wood. Buy it now and you’ll get thirty quid off the original price tag.

M&S Brampton Bench

Brampton Bench – £157.50 (was £225), M&S

We’ve long admired M&S’s Brampton range which includes a sideboard, dining set and a wide range of tables of various types, in addition to this bench. Each piece is fashioned in the same classic Shaker-style, with a warm grey painted finish and whitened oak details (in this case, the table’s surface). At £157.50 it’s been reduced dramatically – as have many of the other pieces in the range – so if you want to add some superb rustic furniture to your home, there’s a great deal to be had!

The Best Bargains in Copper Kitchenware

Copper homeware has become massively popular over the past couple of years – not just because it looks great but because of its properties. It’s especially useful in kitchenware (especially pans) because of its incredible conductivity – it warms up and retains heat so much better than other metals. With that in mind, we present our current favourite bargain copper kitchenware – all of it currently reduced in the sales.

KitchenAid 3-ply Copper 7.5-litre Stockpot with Lid

3-ply 7.5-litre Copper Stockpot with Lid – £154.99 (was £179.99), KitchenAid

From a company well known for producing extremely reliable (and rather expensive!) mixers, this KitchenAid three-ply copper stockpot has a roomy 7.5L capacity and is designed for years of use. Its unique three-layer construction employs an aluminium central layer, an 18/0 stainless steel interior and a pure polished copper exterior. With etched measurements marked on its inside, stainless steel handles and a glass lid, it’s every bit as practical as it is stunning. Catch it now and get £25 off your purchase.

John Lewis Copper 16cm Milk Pan

Copper Milk Pan – £30 (was £60), John Lewis

John Lewis’s copper milk pan also offers the three-ply construction, so can promise even heat distribution throughout the pan and your ingredients. This is of course an important factor when you’re making custard or warming up milk! It has a stainless steel handle attached with strong rivets, as well as internal measurement markings, and is currently on sale for half its original price – so now’s the perfect time to get your hands on some real quality cookware.

Copper Pasta Maker 180mm by Villa d'Este Home

Pasta Maker – £50.61 (was £60.99), Villa d’Este Home

We’ve seen a lot of copper kitchenware on our travels, but this one was probably the most unexpected – the body of Villa d’Este’s pasta maker is made from nickel-plated steel, but the sides are coated in a copper finish and the result is rather striking! It scores on practicality too, having a table clamp, a removable steel handle with a plastic grip and two pasta cutters. It can produce pasta in nine thickness levels – and is a great buy with over a tenner off!

Linea Cucina Copper Roaster

Cucina Copper Roaster – £55 (was £110), Linea

There comes a time when the battered old tin occupying your oven isn’t fit to house another roast…and it’s a relief to replace it with something new like the exquisitely shiny Cucina copper roaster by Linea. This non-stick roaster uses tri-ply technology which ensures perfect conductivity with none of the hotspots that can ruin your culinary creations. With a 25-year guarantee and at half its original price, this quality piece of kitchenware is a real steal!

They all sit in a handsome copper-finished stainless steel block…and can be yours for a penny under thirty quid!

Sunburst Seating: Orange Dining Chairs

After years in the wilderness (after a few ubiquitous years in the 1970s), orange furniture is back. It’s a colour that never fails to lift the spirits – especially if it isn’t coupled with dark brown, as it so often was in its former heyday. The dining room is the perfect place to add a bit of bright colour into the home…so we’ve taken the time to locate our five favourite dining chairs, all available now and, best of all, on sale!
