Love the retro look but don’t have the time to scour antique shops or flea markets looking for bakeware in good condition? Worry not – these updated versions have all the classic beauty and time-tested quality of the originals.
These vintage bakeware favourites look chic in both modern and country kitchens.
1. Mason Cash mixing bowls
Founded in 1800, this British company is still going strong with iconic, durable pieces like their Cane mixing bowl (the design hasn’t changed since 1901) and the updated, pastel Bake My Day collection, emblazoned with foodie-friendly slogans.
2. Donna Hay cooling racks
Functional and fanciful, this wire trivet – care of Australia’s answer to Martha Stewart – can be used to cool hot trays, serve up fresh-baked goods or simply as a hanging decoration.
3. Le Creuset tart dishes
These stoneware tart dishes from the famed French dishware company (est. 1925) are perfect for recipes like this chocolate tart, and also come in petite sizes for individual portions. Note for new Le Creuset collectors: Instead of sticking to one colour (and hoping it never gets discontinued), mix and match the brand’s pieces for a casual, vibrant look.
4. Good Mommy LTD mixer decals
While a classic stand mixer like a KitchenAid is already a timeless piece (the company was founded in 1919!), to give yours a real throwback feel, try these diner-inspired stickers.
5. SMEG blenders
The Italian appliance company’s retro blenders stand out on any counter – no need to store them in a cupboard. Or, you can get their whole retro collection, from fridges to kettles.
