A Piece of Cake - with AnySharp Pro World's Best Knife Sharpener

If you are looking for a nifty little inexpensive gadget, look no further than the AnySharp Pro World’s Best Knife Sharpener , patented and designed with tungsten carbide technology for expertly sharpening almost any type of knife, even serrated blades.   We tried the AnySharp Pro before slicing up our office baguettes and found its PowerGrip suction base gave it instant good stability on any smooth surface and with light pressure and a few deft strokes, our knives were as sharp as new.  At a celebration, serving up perfectly proportioned birthday treats proved to be a piece of cake. We loved the AnySharp's ease of use and compact size (6 x 6 x 7 cm) which is so easy to store tidily in a kitchen drawer or tool box, ready to pop back out easily whenever needed. Available from Lakeland, Wayfair and other retailers. The box is a perfect size for easy gift wrapping. The AnySharp is available in various colours.

A smart, self-closing lid ensures that ice cubes stay in the carafe while pouring to keep its contents perfectly chilled. Using lemon or strawberries in the carafe is a brilliant way to add flavour to your beverage while also creating a colourful centrepiece on the dining table. The cleverly designed lid also makes the carafe highly versatile — if you're serving sweeter
