Get Bake Off Ready with BOX

15th September 2020

 Get Bake Off Ready with BOX!

Bakers, it's that time of the year again, we're getting a new series of The Great British Bake off! Filming has wrapped and we can't wait to tune in on Tuesday 22nd September. We don't know about you, but we tend to catch the baking-bug around this time of year and can't resist challenging ourselves (I mean, Paul Hollywood probably won't be shaking our hands anytime soon, but we can still give it our best!). 

Ingredients (and patience) aside, it does help if your kitchen is equipped with the right appliances. When it comes to baking, while it might be useful to use your grandmother's old recipes, it does tend to help if your equipment is a tad more with the times (sorry, gran). Luckily, we've got you covered at BOX with our range of appliances, from digital kitchen scales to ovens!


Kitchen Scales

If you're a GBBO fan, you'll know how important it is to use the correct measurements to prevent a total baking disaster. A digital scale gives you more accuracy and allows you to switch between solid and liquids measurements. We love this handy 3-in-1 Morphy Richards Black Jug Digital Scale which features a generous capacity and brilliant accuracy. Not only that, but it can be used as a jug, bowl or even a mixing bowl for your convenience- what's not to love?!



Obviously, the next step after measuring your ingredients is combining them together! There are no rules when it comes to choosing a mixer, but we'd definitely recommend a Stand Mixer to any budding baker. Not only will you gain more speed and power, a Stand Mixer also allows you to work with bigger batches, or even make several desserts at once. Don't think you'd get enough use out of it? Then you're probably best sticking with a Hand Mixer (a must-have for all kitchens!). This Bosch Clevermixx Hand Mixer makes light work of whisking thanks to its 400W motor.

Bread Makers

One of our favourite weeks on GBBO is definitely Bread Week! We love seeing the baker's crazy creations. There's nothing better than the smell of freshly baked bread- with a bread maker, you can enjoy freshly baked bread whenever you fancy! We recommend the Tower 2LB Digital Bread Maker for all your doughy needs. Featuring 12 automatic programmes to make white, wholemeal and even gluten-free bread with ease! Didn't think a fresh loaf in under an hour was possible? Well, it sure is! Plus, the bread pan is super easy to clean resulting in minimal mess in the kitchen (always a bonus).

Food Processors

Ready to get gourmet and create some yummy desserts? From ice cream to pie filling, a Food Processor is an extremely versatile piece of equipment to have in your kitchen. We like using the Bosch MultiTalent 3 Compact Food Processor, which has over 30 functions to keep you going. From chopping and grating to mixing and blending- the possibilities are endless. It's also great for even smaller sized kitchens and features integrated cable storage so you don't have to worry about space.



Bakes never turn out as expected? It might be down to your oven! From Indesit to Hotpoint, at Box, we stock a wide range of ovens to suit all of your needs. Some of our ovens, such as the Hotpoint SA2540HIX, actually feature baking functions for you to really get the most out of them when baking. This Hotpoint oven also features Multiflow Technology, which ensures perfectly risen bakes every time thanks to the all-enveloping heat flow which pushes heat in to every corner of your oven, reducing cold areas and changes in temperature.


We can't wait to watch the bakers in action, and hope you'll be joining them too with your new kitchen tech! Get your ingredients ready, because it's Bake Off time!
