Win over £100 of Salter baking equipment!

The lovely people at Salter have very kindly given us a huge pile of their wonderful new Heston baking equipment to give away.  Now if Heston Blumenthal, the precision scientist of the cooking world, has put his name to these products, then I am expecting you will get world-class results from using them!  They are pretty as well as being ultra functional.  It's likely the selection includes equipment that you know you should buy but you've probably been coping without.  For the all-important science aspect of baking you need the precision that this equipment will give you.  [I want it all!]

Heston Blumenthal for Salter Homewares
All you have to do to be considered to win this fantastic package is complete the questionnaire telling us about your favourite cake places.  Only one entry per person, please!  Anyone who has already completed the survey (thank you!) will also be considered an entrant and have the chance to win.
Here’s a closer look at what you could win… (all of the below items will go to one lucky winner!)
Heston Scales
Heston Orb Scale                                  
Isn’t this pretty?  It has an aquatronics function (translation: it weighs liquids properly) and even comes with a dishwasher safe, stainless steel bowl so you can even weigh your egg whites without a risk of fat spoiling your peaks.
Heston Glass Timer

It’s magnetic (!), amongst, you know, all the proper counting up and down features.  You can stand it up too, if you don’t have any places that you can utilise the magnet.
Heston Salter oven timer
Heston Analogue Oven Thermometer

This piece of equipment is often overlooked but even relatively modern ovens can be surprisingly inaccurate in their temperature which can mean the difference between a soggy cake and a well-risen one!
Heston Confectionery Thermometer
Heston Confectionery Thermometer

You really cannot safely make a caramel without one of these (unless perhaps if you’ve had years of experience) and there’s not much worse than the smell and smoke from burnt sugar, not to mention trying to clean up a pan of burnt sugar (yes, I may have done this once or twice and this particular item is going straight to the top of my wish list).  The best bit?  As well as 11 pre-set temperatures (oh, the simplicity) it BEEPS to let you know when the temperature is reached!

Heston Spatula Set by Salter Homewares
Heston Spatula Set (x2)

These are quite sci-fi looking, and acting as well, by the fact they can cope with temperatures up to 250C and won’t scratch your pans either.  I love that they have double ends and these even include a straight line and pointy part to properly get into corners of square containers.
Heston Rolling Pin

Heston Rolling Pin

Maybe I’ve not been around much, but I’ve never seen a rolling pin with this kind of precision rolling options to get accurate thicknesses.  Perfect for getting your shortbread biscuits an equal height!  You can even chill it in the fridge first to avoid warming your pastry too much.

If you would like to see more all of these products are on www.hestonbysalter.com.
Want to win?  Quick!  Go to complete the questionnaire now! 

Small Print
The competition will continue until 31st May 2013.  After this date a winner will be drawn at random from all completed entries.  The winner will be notified in two weeks.  If they do not respond to our attempts to contact them within 14 days we reserve the right to draw again.  We regret that this competition is only open to people with UK addresses.  Only fully complete surveys will be considered.  Only one entry per person will be counted.

Great Cake Places Blog

Jennifer Earle

Welcome to the Great Cake Places blog. I'm Jennifer Earle, the Content Director for Allegra Publications. I love cake. All kinds of cake. Lemon drizzle, coffee & walnut, chocolate, ginger, carrot… I love trying new cakes and baking them too. I’'m particularly obsessed with chocolate and quite partial to cheese scones, straight from the oven, spread with real butter. This job makes me a very happy girl. Please do register for access to discounts we’'ll be adding and say hi in the comments of the blog!
