READY STEADY COOK; Utensils to put the fun back into cooking.

THE old proverb 'Too many cooks spoil the broth' implies that the one place in your home where it is better to be working alone is the kitchen. There is, however, some room for manoeuvre. Kitchen assistance can be quite necessary if there is a tedious task to complete. So take a look at this selection of utensils to give you a much needed hand, without having to crowd your cooking space with additional manpower. These gadgets, are so great they should never be consigned to the dark and forgotten corner of the cupboard with your sandwich toaster and melon baller.

Griffin Adjustable Cabinet Mount (iPad) (pounds 54.95 amazon.co.uk) Aimed at one of the most popular touchscreens on the market, fix this mount to the underside of your kitchen cabinet and it'll hold your iPad securely while you follow an ebook recipe, watch footage from a TV streamer or play music. And when not in use, it will fold away to keep your kitchen clutter-free.

Click 'N' Cook Kitchen Set (pounds 31.99 firebox.com) Keeping all your utensils in order while your pans are bubbling away is never easy. This set includes five separate utensil heads: a slotted spoon, mixer and three spatulas, all with just one handle. Click the handle into the tool you require and you're ready, steady, cook. It's an easy-to-clean, space-saving device that looks rather good, too.

SharpAct Knife Sharpener (pounds 8.99 firebox.com) Most of us give no thought to keeping our slicing implements in peak condition. Only when it is too late and we're struggling to chop the carrots do we wish in hindsight for ownership of a sharpener. Inspired by an age-old magician's trick, this one, with strong carbon steel groove, is not only practical but fun.

Chef'n Garlic Zoom (pounds 6.50 sainsburys.co.uk) Use this device to chop multiple pieces of garlic cloves in a matter of moments while reminiscing over youthful days playing with toy cars. Just pop the cloves into the top door and roll this gadget to achieve perfectly chopped garlic, and keep your hands clean and odour-free. The more you roll, the finer the garlic becomes. How we ever managed without one, who knows? Pizza Boss 3000 (pounds 10.99 firebox.com) Not only will this device make light work of slicing your pepperoni-topped pizza but it will also work on naan breads, pies and toasties. Fashioned in the style of a circular saw, the stainless steel blades will easily glide through doughy bases, and with a removable blade cover, you won't have any problem cleaning off all that stringy cheese!

Pixel Hand Oven Gloves (pounds 13.99 iwantoneofthose.com) Harking back to the times of 1980s desktop PCs, these pixelated oven mitts aren't just a practical solution but serve as a decorative item too. It is time to clear your kitchen of floralfashioned hand protectors and trade up to this pair post haste.
