I have to be quite honest here. The Husband refers to me as “The Queen of the Reheat”. (Memories of “The Potato of Doom” have never quite left me I’m afraid). This means that the kitchen is, by and large, his domain and he is quite happy to receive kitchen-related gifts. I did think of a Marco Pierre-White style bandana but on the basis this may give him ideas of culinary supremacy, I have found a few more appropriate presents from the OXO Good Grips range which would suit for Father’s Day presents from the kids.
Bladed Meat Tenderiser
For those dads that enjoy a good steak or a family BBQ in the summer sun, OXO’s Bladed Meat Tenderiser can help make the taste and tenderness of the meat even more enjoyable. With the cost of a steak main course being generally in the range of £23 per main course, creating restaurant-tender steak at home is very useful! This sharp 50-blade tool creates pockets which reduces both marinating and cooking times allowing the meat to retain its natural juices. Dish-washable safe so, Oxo say, “dad doesn’t have to spend too much time cleaning up after”. Hmm. If only. £16
Available from: Amazon.
Clean Cut Pizza Wheel
Maybe dad prefers a pizza? We tried OXO”s stylish Clean Cut Pizza Wheel, a handheld device designed to cut easily through thick and thin based pizza’s. With a red blade guard to protect hands and soft, non-slip grip, it allows easy control for pizza slicing. £10
Available from: Debenhams. We found this great to use and extremely easy to clean as it just comes apart. We eat pizza at least once a week. Ieuan always demands Ham & Pineapple pizza from which he painstakingly removes each piece of ham and pineapple and leaves them on the side of his plate for Caitlin. Go figure.

Twist Top Water Bottle
OXO’s Twist Top Water Bottle is ‘perfect for those active and sporty dads that are always on the go’. This bottle boasts a 710ml capacity and a large opening for easy filling, cleaning and adding ice.
|Oh bless – I’ve told him it’s full of vodka tonic|
When it’s not in use, the twist-open lid will keep the straw clean and free from spillages. It’s a great chunky bottle whose lid cleverly conceals the straw when not in use. It’s leakproof and spill proof and frankly, belongs in my kit bag for Pilates and my other sports. You can’t afford to get dehydrated when crushing that candy now, can you? £10
Available from: Lakeland.
