Summer is well and truly behind us as the leaves change and we move into October. With the temperatures quickly dropping there’s nothing better than warming up with a Sunday roast dinner. With this in mind, we have put together a list of essential cooking equipment to whip up the perfect roast for you and your family. 

1. Topelek Meat Thermometer


At the heart of every good roast dinner is the meat, whether it is chicken, beef, pork lamb or a Christmas turkey, it can make or break the meal. Getting the meat at the right temperature will ensure that your meat cooks evenly and isn’t undercooked or overcooked. The Topelek meat thermometer not only keeps track of the temperature, but you can programme it to your personal taste by adjusting the temperature settings. With the added bonus of a timer, you‘ll know exactly when it’s ready to carve.

2. Practical Surfaceware Silicone Trivet


There are so many parts to cooking a roast dinner and different elements often need different pots and pans. With the rush of pulling it all together, hot pans often damage work tops and surfaces after being directly placed on top of them. This silicone trivet protects all your surfaces from heat and discolouring. Also, as it 100% silicone rather than metal, the trivet itself doesn’t cause any wear and tear.

The OXO Good Grips Fat Separator cup makes it easy to get rid of excess fat from your gravy, allowing you to make better and healthier gravy every time!
