It doesn't matter whether your kitchen is large or small, it’s clever integration that counts. For example, with Villeroy & Boch ceramic sinks, taps & fittings and Food Specials. Because they are all perfect examples of one guiding principle: modern design meets functional extras.
The kitchen sink area offers lots of scope for clever solutions. If space is limited, a small sink such as the 45 centimetre Subway Compact is an ideal choice - with a deep basin and even a small draining surface for ideal convenience. Or how about washing up with a view? A sink positioned right in front of the window looks great, but unfortunately the taps often prove a stumbling block as they can obstruct access to the window. The Como Window taps are the perfect solution: pull the taps out, move them to the side let the fresh air in, close the window and place the taps back onto the support – simple. Talking about taps: have you heard about the new taps with push-up waste outlets, offering enhanced aesthetics and top functionality? This clever solution eliminates the need for the regular button on the edge of the basin, you simply turn the lower part of the tap.
Also when it comes to cooking and baking, there are some clever helpers at hand. For example, the lasagne server from the successful Pasta Passion series, which goes in the oven with the dish. This ensures the first portion arrives perfectly on the plate when you serve this delicious dish of baked pasta sheets – effortlessly and guaranteed not to fall apart. To avoid burning yourself on the hot stainless steel, there are silicone handles tailored to the shape of the handles on the ceramic dish – an intelligent solution.
And if you don’t want to use a spoon to help you twist long pieces of pasta, the recess on the Pasta Passion plate is just what you’ve been looking for. It will allow you to twist tagliatelle, spaghetti and more onto your fork with stylish ease – just like the Italians.
Not forgetting some multi-talented all-rounders which are capable of more than you might suspect at first sight. For example, a ceramic strainer that transforms quickly and easily into a serving bowl. Simply use it to strain your pasta, rice or vegetables after cooking, drain thoroughly, then fold down the flexible silicone base and place it on the table – for a guaranteed wow effect.
Or the Clever Baking series, whose name says it all. The star of the series is the two-part Bundt cake mould, winner of the 2018 Gold “KitchenInnovation” award. Special feature: the removable inner section. As well as allowing easier greasing, it also includes a measuring cup and allows you to make small or large cakes.
All the other Clever Baking and Clever Cooking items are equally impressive: heat-resistant, dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe and freezer-safe. And they look pretty good too, featuring decors including a spiral pattern in trendy pink. An extra tip for a “two-in-one” solution: place two footed cake plates on top of each other to make a great cake stand - how clever is that?
