Still need an excuse? Here’s 5 more reasons you need a second bowl, blade and lid set in your life.

  1. Make ingredients from scratch – mill almond meal, icing sugar, or even grate Parmesan cheese without stopping the flow of your recipe.
  2. Sunday cook ups take half the time with two bowls on the go, with no need to stop and wash up between recipes.
  3. If you’re catering for special dietary requirements, you may like to allocate one bowl for those recipes to avoid cross-contamination.
  4. Adding the finishing touches shouldn’t mean spending hours in the kitchen. Whip up a quick and easy gravy in your second bowl to take your mashed potato or steamed veg to the next level.
  5. Guests coming around for dinner? Use your extra bowl to whip up a batch of welcome cocktails!
