Review & Giveaway: Christmas Baking With Mason Cash
It’s that time of year again. Zesty tangerine, warming cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg… Mmm! And I can’t think of a better way of bringing the festive feeling into your kitchen, than baking with my favourite, Mason Cash. This week, we’ve been testing out their mixing bowl, batter bowl, pudding basin and innovative utensil range. This utensil range includes:
Innovative Kitchen Spaghetti Spoon
Innovative Kitchen Spatula
Innovative Kitchen Solid Spoon & Jar Scraper
Innovative Kitchen Turner & Rack Grabber

The Slotted Spoon with Egg Separator is a specially designed 2-in-1 utensil. The spoon is ideal for stirring and draining food in water, sauces or oils and the slots on the spoon head are designed to separate egg whites from yolks. The grooves on the back of the spoon handle allows the spoon to sit on a Mason Cash Mixing Bowl or Pudding Basin, making separating your eggs easy!
Alongside all of this we’ve been putting the Mason Cash red 29cm mixing bowl, red batter bowl and 16cm red pudding basin to the test. The Mason Cash mixing bowl is iconic at this point. Almost everyone remembers their mother or grandmother using one. We love that it’s the perfect size for bread, cake, cookie, pastry and pudding mixes. Not to mention all of the beautiful colours that it is now available in.
As almost everybody already knows, Mason Cash has been the choice of home cooks and bakers for centuries.
The origins of Mason Cash can be traced back to a pottery operating at Church Gresley in the heart of the English ceramic industry in 1800. Church Gresley was located close to all the raw material and fuel sources required to make ceramics and had fantastic transport links to take finished goods all over the UK and the world. The pottery produced kitchen items made from ‘white and cane’ glazed earthenware sometimes known as ‘yellow ware’ due to the colour of the local clay, or ‘bargeware’ as it was packed onto barges and sent to market.
The pottery was run by a series of Master Potters of whom the most colourful was ‘Bossy’ Mason, which is where the ‘Mason’ name came from in the 1800’s. Tom Cash acquired the pottery in 1901 and renamed the company Mason Cash & Co. Mason Cash had been producing mixing bowls during the 1800’s, but in 1901 they designed and manufactured the very first iconic Mason Cash mixing bowl. The design of the bowl has endured the test of time and has become something of a design classic.
The design has barely altered since then, which is why the brand is still renowned for its innovative, classic kitchenware today.
