Aloha Giovanni

Lets talk eggs! Who doesn’t love a perfectly scrambled egg on toast, a cooked to perfection poached egg perched on asparagus or the humble but you just can’t beat,  dippy egg and toast soldiers. In an effort to achive this perfection Koziol have created a few tools to help us out!

Aloha is an egg cooker that you can lower into the pan, pop in your egg and wait 3 minutes (or however long it takes to make your preffered boiled egg) then simply lift out those eggs without fear of burning hands or dropping eggs.

And there’s a fun version for the kids, meet Buggy! Buggy, like Aloha can also be used in the pan to cook the eggs. There’s a handle with a hooked end that fits over the edge of the pan, then once your egg is cooked Buggy can be transported to the table and used as an egg cup. Practical and fun!

Finally there’s Giovanni. A stand alone egg slicer that can also be used to slice Mozzarella cheese. Pop your peeled boiled egg or ball of Mozzarella cheese into Giovann’s oversized open smiling mouth and then close to reveal a prefectly sliced egg or mozzarella for your salad or sandwiches.

So there you have it! Tools to acheive egg perfection time and time again.

2015 Here we Go!

Happy New Year everyone! After a hectic Christmas and New Year it’s taken us this past week to get back into our stride. It’s a busy, exciting time for us, all the Trade Shows begin this weekend and we get a chance to preview the new designs for 2015! Just after Christmas the Koziol summer selection catalogue landed on our doormat, full of zingy fruity summer colours, with three new colours to look out for coral, ginger yellow and taupe. The coral and taupe mixed together are very reminiscent of sugary sweets and the ginger yellow mixed with turquoise is a real feast for the eyes!

As we don’t have any new products available yet, we thought we could at least share some images of the colour pallete and a little photography of what’s we can look forward too!

The Snow Queen meets Little Red Riding Hood & The Mad Hatter!

With the last of bank holidays over with before Christmas, it’s time to start thinking Autumn/Winter stock. Difficult I know to think of Christmas festivities and snow when the sun is shining, but the way we look at it is, at least the sun is shining!
This year the colour palette for Koziol’s Autumn/Winter is full of rich, strong colours that break down into four trends. First up is Star Money, a collection that can only be described as stellar, white and black mix with taupe and luxurious copper, like the twinkling stars in the night sky.

Next is Little Red Riding Hood, so this one speaks for itself… bold and rich red mix with innocent white and stark black.

Number three is The Snow Queen. Again white features quite heavily but this time white is mixed with turquoise and blue, reminiscent of ice.

Finally is Alice in Wonderland, this is a collection of bright, fiery colours that will be perfectly at home at the Mad Hatters Tea Party! Red and orange rub shoulders with fuschia pink and taupe.

So there you have it, a peek at what to expect, fun products in glorious winter colours coming soon!

The Shadow of Salad

New for spring summer 2014 is this beautiful Shadow salad bowl and servers. Available in two colours, a white bowl with lime green servers or an anthracite bowl with black salad servers, this stylish set is made from 100% recyclable BPA and melamine free plastic and both the bowl and servers are dishwasher safe. The beautiful and unusual design of the bowl allows the servers to slot into the cut-out pattern on the edge of the bowl and it’s all presented in a smart gift box, making it an ideal present.

The distinctive cut-out pattern on the edge of the bowl is carried through to the servers and the whole set has an abstract, natural nature feel to it. Designed by Rodolfo Argella, Shadow is a great addition to the Koziol catalogue, we just can’t decide which colour we like best!

With August coming to an end, the start of September signifies the release of the 2013 Autumn/Winter collection. LOTS of new products are heading our way along with new colours of classic designs. One of the most anticipated designs is the new Toc Toc clock, a modern twist on the traditional Cuckoo clock. Toc Toc comes in black or white each featuring a co-ordinating Pip bird which spins at the top of the clock, or for even more fun, choose the one with the cat reaching up to grab the unsuspecting Pip bird.
Either way we just love this fun twist on an old classic!

Pretty In Pink

Sneaky Peek at Autumn/Winter

Whilst we were at the Koziol factory learning about the process of making products we also got to see the products that are to be launched later this year, we thought we’d share our pics with you – what’s the point in seeing something new if we can’t talk about it!

Enjoy the preview and look out for them early September.
