HG Ceramic Hob Thorough Cleaner

This product gets rid of those impossible burned on stains on the glass tops of induction and ceramic hobs. I thought I had ruined my hob forever when a new pan left a nasty residue – a quick search on the internet suggested I try this product, and it worked like magic.  A friend had the same problem, and was also delighted when I recommended it.

Oven Pride Complete Oven Cleaner

An absolute godsend for anyone who dreads cleaning their oven, Oven Pride is a simple, and very powerful product which will melt away burnt on grease overnight. There is also a nifty bag for the racks and shelves, which solves the problem of the product dripping off, or more annoyingly, your bath being out of action, whilst you soak them in there. It even comes with a pair of disposable gloves to help keep your hands safe!

Mesh Food Umbrella

Do you worry about flies getting your al fresco meal before you do? This is a food cover which works like an umbrella. I first bought one in France and was delighted to see them for sale in the UK for under £5, so I snapped some up and sent one to a friend. They fold down so are easy to store and keep the flies off your food when dining outside.
