Essential Summer Kitchen Accessories

Whip up fresh smoothies, nutritious salads and much more with our top summer kitchen accessories

When it comes to summer, we all like to lean towards a certain lifestyle. The weather is warmer, days lighter and spending as much time outside as possible to soak up those rays is a must! Ensuring that you have everything you need from relaxing in a sun lounger with your feet up and a cold drink to planning a garden party with friends and lots of summery snacks, will turn your summer into the ultimate experience. Create the place to be and kit out your kitchen with our essential kitchen accessories for the perfect, organised summer.


Glass Storage Jars

Porridge, move over, there is a new breakfast in town. Overnight oats have taken the culinary world by storm and are incredibly versatile, allowing you to add your favourite fruit, flavours and toppings when serving. The 500ml Quattro Stagioni Glass Storage Jar – By Bormioli Rocco is the perfect size for this. The screw-top lid will help preserve freshness overnight while the oats absorb your chosen flavours. We’ve included an easy recipe below if you want to give this a try.


Easy Rinkit! Overnight Oats


  • 500ml Glass Storage Jar
  • Spoon
  • Scales


  • 50g oats
  • 75g yoghurt
  • Approx. 100ml Milk (or water) to taste
  • Optional extras: Cinnamon, desiccated coconut
  • Fruit of your choice (fresh or frozen)


  1. Add the oats, yoghurt, and optional extras to the jar.
  2. Add the milk or water bit by bit.
  3. If you’re using frozen fruit add this now, the fruit will release some extra water after thawing. This will make the mixture more liquid.
  4. Stir well and add more milk or water to get the desired consistency.
  5. Screw the lid on and leave overnight in the fridge.
  6. In the morning eat the oats straight from the jar or pop them into a bowl and top with the fresh fruit.


Glass Mixing Bowls

Bake cakes, bread and much more with ease using glass mixing bowls. The Lys Nesting Mixing Bowls from Duralex are perfect for any size bake. As the name suggests, each bowl nests snugly inside the size above allowing you to save space while storing them in your kitchen cupboards. Glass bowls are also brilliant for whisking up egg whites (or aquafaba) for a delicious summer berry pavlova or Eton mess dessert.


Chopping Boards

Chopping boards are an essential kitchen accessory. They protect your worktops from damage and help to maintain a clean and hygienic space. Inject some colour or fun into your kitchen with our range of glass chopping boards from Harbour Housewares. They can also be used as a trivet for hot pans. If you prefer wooden chopping boards, we have a wide selection from T&G Woodware including a fun whale shape and crumb-catching bread board too.


Plastic Food Storage

Your delicious leftovers never need to go to waste with our handy plastic food storage. An essential for random barbequed items that are not hoovered up by your guests, these storage containers by Argon Tableware are available in a range of sizes and come in a handy eight-piece set. The dual clasp closure and airtight seal ensures that food stays fresh, and no accidental leakages take place. Our plastic food storage is a great alternative to glass storage jars if you decide to ‘edit’ and ‘organise’ your home and take inspiration from the popular Netflix show.


Pestle & Mortar

Grind spices, mince garlic and bruise herbs efficiently with our marble pestle & mortar from Argon Tableware. A solid stone construction makes these pieces sturdy enough to satisfy even the most demanding kitchen, while the natural marble pattern provides an on-trend contemporary aesthetic. Protip: To clean, grind some uncooked rice in your mortar. This will help pull out any remnants or residue. Gently rinse with warm soapy water and dry before using again.


Spaghetti Measure

Never cook too much spaghetti (or linguine) again…don’t hold us to that! A very underrated kitchen gadget, a spaghetti measure will help you portion your pasta-based meal to perfection helping you combat wasting any food or simply cooking too much. Choose between Stainless Steel Spaghetti Measure or FSC Beech Wooden Spaghetti measure.


Oven Gloves

A kitchen accessory that you shouldn’t be without. A great pair of oven gloves, pan grab or single oven mitt will add a touch of style to your kitchen. They are also going to protect your hands and arms from hot trays, saucepan lids and more. Check out some of our favourites here.
