Nigella Lawson Living Kitchen

I feel privileged to have a large stock of BlissHome Nigella Lawson’s Living Kitchen items.  I love the good quality of the tactile stoneware, the simple design, and the blue and cream colours worked beautifully in my last kitchen and in the new one as they are neutral but beautiful shades. A combination of red and black would also be beautiful.  She also has many things in a rosebud pink now.  Here are some of the many Nigella Lawson items that I love and use in my kitchen.

butterBlissHome Nigella Lawson’s Living Kitchen Butter Dish, Cream

Style wise this is a miniature version of Nigella’s bread bin (shown in my dining room pictures) which I also love.  I have this butter dish in blue, and its a perfect design, easy to get the butter out of, and holds plenty.  The clean simple lines work perfectly in my eclectic kitchen.

This is probably the Nigella Lawson item I own that I love the most.  I often keep it on my island, even if I just have a couple of muffins or a few scones or cookies in it, or even store bought cookies.  It keeps baked goods fresh.  For a cake or a pie it truly is a thing of beauty.  I have the cream version in this.

I got my salt pigs in blue.  This design is nice in that your hand reaches into it easily to grab the salt.  It holds a plentiful supply.  I also bought the smaller size salt and pepper pigs on a tray, but found them better suited for table use rather than cooking.

These bowls are great either for mixing bowls or serving bowls.  The big one is large enough to mix pasta for a large crowd, and I put bread in the next size down and salads in others.  I have the cream ones. In the same line, you can also get a set of melamine mixing bowls (in red, cream or black) if you want something lighter weight but I don’t mind the weight.  I also got matching colanders to fit a couple of the sizes, and with the similar egg sized shape they fit nicely on top of the bowl after draining while you finish your pasta sauce.

I have some practical every day measuring cups, but these are so pretty I couldn’t resist them, and I do use them when I have a lot of baking on the go.  They dip easily into canisters with the nice little handle and shallow design too.

I bought the blue one, and its such a pretty measuring cup that I often use it as a small vase in the kitchen for little bouquets of flowers in gardening season, or for a jug for cream if I need a large quantity of it for a desert.  These stoneware measuring cups in her line don’t seem as heavy as Pyrex, which is nice.

I have these in blue, and they’re perfect, another favorite.  I use them all the time.  They’re a bit on the tall side but fit easily under an overhead cupboard in a utensils holder. Many cooks who have helped me have admired them.  Each piece seems to have a perfect design for its purpose, and that’s all we really want in the end in our large utensils.

This pretty teapot has worked beautifully in my kitchen for several years now. It pours nicely, no messes, and can double for iced tea in summer too. I also have the matching milk jug and sugar bowl, which hold perfect amounts for serving guests.

I could go on and on, as I have several of her other products which I have collected over a few years, such as the cookie tins, sugar canister, a couple of storage jars, tea pot, cream and sugar, but would just add generally that this is good quality stoneware or metal (I don’t have any of the melamine yet but am sure it is equally good quality) in a timeless design that I doubt I will ever tire of.
