What’s cooking for Men at Marchmont Hardware?

Pizza Scooter from Eddingtons

This is a typical ‘blokey’, fun kitchen tool and it’s a great impulse buy.


Bambroo Mugs from Dexam

These practical reusable travel cups come in a good range, including manly colours.


Zeal Silicone Duck Tongs from CKS

These fun toaster tongs are shaped like duck beaks and are another good impulse buy.

Dreamfarm Garject from Forma House

The Garject is a quirky tool for the kitchen that works well and appeals to men.


12 inch Spun Iron Frypan from Netherton Foundry

Made in Britain, these traditional spun iron frying pans with wooden handles are rustic and artisan looking.


Blowtorch from Eddingtons

Blowtorches are a massive man thing – they make a great toy for the kitchen! We just had a customer come in to tell us he is now making perfect crème brulee thanks to the blowtorch his wife bought for him.
