If you love retro looking kitchen tools then be sure to read this post! I’ve found a bread can, kitchen scale and a mixer all in retro style during the Easter sale.
Everything becomes more fun and easy if you have good working tools. It’s even better when they look awesome as well! Luckily I’ve found some great retro looking kitchen tools in the Easter sales. Like I promissed in part 1 of my Easter Sales Tip (click here to read it), which was about food, I will share my finds with you. For the Dutchies who are reading this, you can find these at Albert Heijn.
First off I found this pastel yellow bread can.
I’ve been looking for this for quite a while now. At first I was eyeing this baby from Wesco, but it costs 69 euro’s. Way too expensive for a simple storing item in my opinion! I’ll show you a picture to show you the comparison of the two (the one below is from Wesco).
Granted the one I bought is of a much lesser quality, but that doesn’t really matter in this case. It will sit on the kitchen counter and you open it once or twice day. Not much can happen there. It’s a really deep and big can which can store a lot of bread or other breakfast related items. It also comes in a mint green color. It costs 17,99e.
A mixer is a real must have tool in any kitchen and I died when I saw this one in a mint green color. It comes with regular whisks and dough hooks. And has a simple, all you need, mode of operation. I own a blender and sandwhich grill by Tristar as well and I’ve never had any problems with them. There’s not much more I can say about this. It’s an affordable and handy tool that comes in a great color instead of the boring old white one. Whenever I see it I actually want to start baking (which is normally not my forte). It costs 12,99e.
I used to use a cheap digital kitchen scale, but it broke down on me. So I naturally needed a new one, preferably one that can way up to 3 kg. Aaaand I found this beauty. Again in a mint green color. It costed me 12,99e as well and I’m surprised about the great quality. It’s not a thin, flimsy plastic scale. It’s made out of metal (so quite heavy). It’s very sturdy and it can way up to 5 kg. The bowl is not attached to the scale so you can easliy move around with it. I think this one is my best find.
This next item was not for sale at Albert Heijn’s Easter sale, but I thougt I’d include it anyway beacuse it fits the theme well. In Holland we have a ‘cake’ that’s called ontbijtkoek. Litterally translated ‘breakfast cookie’. It’s a spiced cake (comparable with the taste of a gingerbread man) that we usually eat with butter on top. In the fifties they would store them in these kind of cans. You can still find them at flee markets or on Ebay, but most of the time they are not that clean anymore and I don’t like to put my food in them. I bought this one at Xenos for 5,99e.
I hope these tips were helpfull and you will manage to get them if you’re into retro looking stuff like me. If you want to stay updated about upcoming posts then follow and like Nomster on Facebook: NomsterNL
