    Baking with Mason Cash

    This week, we’ve been testing out their mixing bowl, batter bowl, pudding basin and innovative utensil range. This utensil range includes:

    Innovative Kitchen Spaghetti Spoon

    The Spaghetti and Risotto Spoon is a specially designed 3-in-1 utensil which allows you to prepare, stir and serve spaghetti and risotto. The two holes in the spoon head perfectly measure 1 & 2 person portions of spaghetti and the square edge is ideal for stirring risotto, allowing the for a free flow of rice whilst also getting into pan corners.

    Innovative Kitchen Spatula

    The Spatula is perfect for stirring mixes and scraping bowls and pans clean. The head can be removed and used as a bowl scraper and the small spatula is perfect for spreading frosting onto cakes and scraping the inside of jars.

    Innovative Kitchen Solid Spoon & Jar Scraper

    The Baker’s Spoon with Jar Scraper is ideal for beating, stirring and blending. This 3-in-1 utensil features measurements for 1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon and 1/2 teaspoon on the spoon head and a silicone jar scraper and spatula on the handle.

    Innovative Kitchen Turner & Rack Grabber

    The Slotted Turner with Rack Grabber is ideal for turning meat and vegetables in pans or oven trays. Slots allow liquid and oils to run free when stirring or lifting food. The handle is specially designed to pull out and push in oven racks when checking on bakes.

    Innovative Kitchen Whisk & Reamer

    The Whisk and Reamer is a specially designed 2-in-1 Utensil. The stainless steel balloon whisk is perfect for whisking eggs, cream and cake mixtures and the reamer handle is perfect for juicing lemons and limes.

    Innovative Kitchen Pastry Brush & Fork

    The Pastry Brush and Fork is a specially designed 4-in-1 utensil. The brush is perfectly sized to allow you to glaze pastries and basting with ease, whilst the fork end can be used for whisking egg wash, pricking pastry and crimping pie crusts.

    Innovative Kitchen Slotted Spoon

    The Slotted Spoon with Egg Separator is a specially designed 2-in-1 utensil. The spoon is ideal for stirring and draining food in water, sauces or oils and the slots on the spoon head are designed to separate egg whites from yolks. The grooves on the back of the spoon handle allows the spoon to sit on a Mason Cash Mixing Bowl or Pudding Basin, making separating your eggs easy!

    Alongside all of this we’ve been putting the Mason Cash red 29cm mixing bowl, red batter bowl and 16cm red pudding basin to the test. The Mason Cash mixing bowl is iconic at this point. Almost everyone remembers their mother or grandmother using one. We love that it’s the perfect size for bread, cake, cookie, pastry and pudding mixes. Not to mention all of the beautiful colours that it is now available in.

    The Mason Cash batter bowl co-ordinates perfectly with the Colour Mix Mixing Bowls and Pudding basins. The Batter Bowls are the latest addition to their range. The red batter bowl is large enough to whisk and mix ingredients in, with a really useful pouring lip and handle for when you’re ready to pour.

    As almost everybody already knows, Mason Cash has been the choice of home cooks and bakers for centuries.

    The origins of Mason Cash can be traced back to a pottery operating at Church Gresley in the heart of the English ceramic industry in 1800. Church Gresley was located close to all the raw material and fuel sources required to make ceramics and had fantastic transport links to take finished goods all over the UK and the world. The pottery produced kitchen items made from ‘white and cane’ glazed earthenware sometimes known as ‘yellow ware’ due to the colour of the local clay, or ‘bargeware’ as it was packed onto barges and sent to market.

    The pottery was run by a series of Master Potters of whom the most colourful was ‘Bossy’ Mason, which is where the ‘Mason’ name came from in the 1800’s. Tom Cash acquired the pottery in 1901 and renamed the company Mason Cash & Co. Mason Cash had been producing mixing bowls during the 1800’s, but in 1901 they designed and manufactured the very first iconic Mason Cash mixing bowl. The design of the bowl has endured the test of time and has become something of a design classic.

    The design has barely altered since then, which is why the brand is still renowned for its innovative, classic kitchenware today.
