Bargain Buys!

Now I know that the general rule with kitchen tools and appliances is that you get what you pay for. That being said however I do believe that there are great bargains out there if you look in the right places. I've bought a few things in the Lidl special offer section with the frame of mind "at that price, if I get a few months out of it I've lost nothing!" but I've been pleasantly surprised and the quality is actually impressive.

They have a few bits and pieces in next weeks offers that have caught my eye.

I've been meaning to buy one of these Grill pans for ages now so I'm going to splash out (!) on this one for €12.99 when it hits the stores next Thursday. It's got a teflon anti-stick coating by DuPont.



My mother bought me this mezzaluna a few months ago when it was last on offer and I don't know how I ever managed without it! She always regretted not picking one up for herself so I'm going to get her one this week as it's in store again for €5.99



I'm undecided about this electric pasta maker for €69.99. I'm always promising to make my own pasta (and this one even comes with the recipe!) but in reality I think I would make it once and then admit that the shop-bought pasta is much easier (not to mention tastes better!)



They also have these kids bedclothes on offer that would be ideal if you're looking for a spare set. They cost €17.99 and they are available in (tune out if you have no kids...) Bob The Builder, Disney Princesses, Cars and someone else that I can't remember... They are 100% cotton and there are matching cushions available for €5.99!





I'm a sucker for a bargain!

I was looking at the brochure yesterday and I noticed that they have glass containers with lids, a set of 5 for 6.99. My mom has them and she says they are great for keeping stuff in the fridge. Here's the link.
