Hokan Bowls

These sustainable, stackable stoneware bowls offer a practical and plastic-free solution to food storage and reheating and the stylish, classic design makes them perfect gifts.

Not only are they are oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe but they will free your father forever from one of the most frustrating plastic container problems. The volume of each bowl is determined by its height, which keeps all of the lids the same size for each bowl, so no need to search through the kitchen for the correct lid – they all work. You can also use the lids as side dishes. We love them as ramen bowls with pickles on the lid/side plate, similarly for soup and bread or for dips and crudités; check out the other colours too.

RRP: £80.00 for a set of three; also available individually

  • The Microplane Y-Peeler with Serrated Blade has a fine, razor-sharp, serrated double blade which is particularly useful for peeling delicate fruits and vegetables with a softer skin such as tomatoes, kiwis, peaches and mangoes without damaging the flesh.

  • The Microplane Y-Peeler with Julienne Blade has an ultra-sharp stainless-steel blade with mini sharp teeth, for cutting vegetables into uniform julienne sticks. It’s easy to quickly create fine carrot, courgette and cucumber matchsticks for stir-fries or salads - and it's an absolute game-changer for spring rolls and summer rolls.
