- Crockery Buying Guide
Crockery Guide from Dunelm Mill
The term crockery refers to many different dining items such as plates, bowls, teapots, cake stands and even salt and pepper mills. All of these items are everyday traditional kitchen items; however the style and design that you choose can help to add a true touch of personality to your home.
Types of Crockery
As already mentioned, crockery incorporates many different items. Listed below is some of the most popular product types.
Following on from the jubilee celebration comes a wave of popularity for the Great British afternoon tea. A key product for this afternoon delight is a beautifully crafted cake stand. Whether you're getting creative in the kitchen with the kids or purchasing a few tasty treats for a girls afternoon catch up, a cake stand is an essential purchase.
A good cup of tea is a fantastic British tradition. It is often said that a good cup of tea can fix all of life’s little problems. If this is true then surely this wonder drink deserves a lovely stylish pot to be poured out of! Years ago teapots were a common site throughout all households in the UK, unfortunately nowadays it is more likely that you will make yourself a cuppa in a normal mug or tea cup. However, following on from the rise in afternoon tea parties not only are cake stands back in popularity but so are teapots. Available in an array of fashionable shapes and designs you’re sure to find the perfect teapot for your lazy afternoon slice of cake, little sandwiches and of course a good cup of English tea.
Dinnerware sets are one of the most useful crockery items available. This style of set usually incorporates all of the items that you will need for a meal with friends such as plates, bowls and mugs all in a range of different sizes making them perfect for all dinner parties. They are also the perfect solution for students or kids leaving home for the first time as they provide the perfect starter kit for their kitchen collection. There are many different colours and styles available on the market today and here at Dunelm Mill we are very proud to offer a broad selection of dinnerware sets from a range of prices.
