When it comes to stocking up on tasty treats over the festive period, it’s easy to get carried away and buy too many. While it’s definitely a case of the more food the merrier, this tactic often leads to lots of leftovers at the end of Christmas day.
To make the most of any uneaten food and reduce the stress of hosting, it can be worth preparing your kitchen in advance for the post-Christmas cook. Luckily, our guide has everything you need to make finishing off leftovers a breeze, including useful appliances, storage ideas and stylish tableware.
After the chaos of Christmas, the last thing you want to do is spend all day in the kitchen. To feed the whole family with minimal effort, try one of our slow cookers. Helping you to use up delicious leftovers, a slow cooker will leave you extra time to catch up on Christmas TV and enjoy a much-deserved break.
Our Morphy Richards slow cooker is perfect when you’re hosting friends or extended family members. With a 6.5L capacity, this stylish stainless steel cooker can comfortably feed large (and hungry) groups with half the fuss.
Blitz With A Hand Blender
With the temperature continuing to drop, warming meals are a must to battle against the cold. Healthy and nourishing, a Christmas soup is a wonderful way to make the most of leftover veg and meat.
A cosy meal with the family wouldn’t be complete without some snug nightwear to cuddle up in. Featuring matching designs and seasonal styles, our pyjamas will let you and your little ones get comfy while you watch festive films.
Why not try a hand blender to blitz the soup to your ideal consistency? Coming with different speed settings and detachable parts for ease of use, our Russell Hobbs blender will see you through the festive period and beyond.
One of the hardest things about leftovers is finding somewhere to keep them all. If you’re running out of pots and pans, try our Pyrex storage containers. Not only are they microwave and oven safe, but these handy containers are also stackable, helping you maximise fridge space.
Whether you’re dishing up right away or are keeping food in the freezer for a rainy day, make sure you label your creations to keep track of what’s in each. Nobody wants to defrost Brussels sprouts instead of Christmas pudding!
Whatever you’re cooking, why not impress guests by serving it in some tasteful tableware? From enchanting unicorn designs to trendy hexagonal sets and floral ranges, pick from our stylish selection of tableware to take your hosting game to the next level.
