Kenwood Mixing Bowls

29 Jul

Kenwood mixing bowls

Kenwood mixing bowls

They may be very plain to look at, but these Kenwood mixing bowls aren’t that easy to come by. They would originally have been sold as the smaller of the two bowls that accompany a Kenwood mixer, but presumably they outlasted the machine. The one bowl does have some scratches on the inside base, which I assume were caused by the beater running along the pyrex, but other than that both bowls are in good condition.

A great pair for anyone who’s into their baking. These bowls also make nice salad bowls or serving dishes for pasta.

Dimensions: Each bowl measures 18cm tall x 13.5cm in diameter

Price: R120 each (ONE AVAILABLE)

Pyrex Coffee Percolator – SOLD

27 Jul

I’ve always found these Pyrex coffee percolators very stylish! My gran had loads of clear pyrexware – coffee pots, glasses etc – and they always seemed very elegant to me, the type of thing that you’d se in a coffee shop or Germany or France (if you know what I mean?). And in addition to being super good looking, these percolators tend to be in very good nick. If they have all their parts (often the inside pieces are missing), they’re generally pretty clean.

A stylish and practical coffee percolator that will look great sitting on your gas stove.

Dimensions: 18cm tall x 14cm in diameter

Price: R230

Coloured Pyrex Bowls – SOLD

I love the colours of these Fire-King pyrex bowls! Aren’t they great? And the black trim around the rim accentuates the bright yellow and red. There’s a bit of wear to the paintwork, and the bowls aren’t the largest, but it makes sense to have all sorts of different sized bowls in your kitchen, so I’m sure that you’ll still get plenty of use out of them.

A very handsome pair that are going to look fabulous sitting on your kitchen shelf!

Dimensions: Medium bowl – 9cm tall x 18cm in diameter; Small bowl – 7.5cm tall x 15cm in diameter

Price: R180 for the pair

Note: Mint puts up four new items every weekday. The first post goes up at 07h00, the second at 08h00 and the third and fourth at 08h30. You can subscribe to our daily email which goes out at around 09h00 by clicking on the pink envelope on the right hand side of the blog (more…)

Striped Pyrex Bowl – SOLD

I’m not sure whether I’m correct in calling this bowl ‘pyrex’ or not? At any rate it looks and feels very similar to pyrex, so I suppose it’s a good way of describing it. The bowl was made by Opalex, a division of the French glass company Arc Interntional, who are still going today – in fact I think they may be one of the largest glass producers in the world. I’ve come across quite a few of these Opalex bowls before, and I can always distinguish them from the pyrex versions because they’re a slightly better quality – the glass is a bit more like milk glass, less translucent and slightly thicker then the same striped pyrex bowls. And this is a really nice example, with barely a scratch on it!

A great display piece that will also prove super useful in the kitchen – use it for beating your scrambled eggs, serving your pasta, or for a nice fresh salad!

Dimensions: 12cm tall x 19cm in diameter

Price: R120

How sweet are these jade Fire-King mixing bowls? I love the colour – it’s such a classic colour for vintage kitchenalia – and the swirls in the glass make it extra special! There are one or two small marks that show up as specks of white (see pics under ‘more’), but on the whole the bowls are in good nick for their years!

Dimensions: Medium bowl – 18cm in diameter x 8.5cm tall; Small bowl – 15.5cm in diameter x 7cm tall

Price: R140 for the pair

JAJ Pyrex Gravy Boat – SOLD

JAJ Pyrex gravy boat

While I can definitely appreciate the beauty of a fine piece of china, my personal taste is a bit more rugged, preferring pyrex over porcelain! And this JAJ Pyrex gravy boat with matching saucer is a great example of why I love pyrexware so much! For one it’s generally much more durable and hardwearing than porcelain, and secondly, and most importantly, the patterns are generally much funkier! with its stylised pattern and bright orange and blue flowers, this gravy boat is right up my street!

Note: There’s a minor mark near the spout, but otherwise the jug and saucer are both in great condition.

Dimensions: Gravy boat – 19cm long x 8.5cm wide x 7cm tall; Saucer – 20cm long x 15cm wide

Price: R125
