Lakeland Oven Add-a-Shelf August 2009
Make more of your oven space
The result of a competition among Lakeland customers to dream up the next kitchen ‘must have’, Lakeland’s Oven Add-a-Shelf makes use of the empty space at the bottom of your oven, allowing you to fit ever more dishes into your oven, freestanding cooker or range cooker.
Lakeland's Oven Add-a-Shelf is a freestanding, stainless steel rack and is just over 5cm tall.
The Lakeland Oven Add-a-Shelf slides in beneath the lowest shelf in your oven, freestanding cooker or range cooker, giving an extra cooking level – handy if you’re cooking a big dinner for a special occasion and just don’t have enough room in your oven.
If you’re cooking food that isn’t too big and doesn’t rise, the Oven Add-a-Shelf will work well. So baking a tray of cookies, oven chips, frozen fish or a pizza on the extra shelf helps to make the most of the spare space at the bottom of the oven and allows you to cook more dishes at once.
Lakeland advertises the Oven Add-a-Shelf with a joint of roast beef on it, however – to fit such a large dish in, the other shelves have to be moved up to the next rack. If you end up moving existing shelves around to fit in large dishes on the Add-a-Shelf, it could prove to be a bit of a false economy.
The Lakeland Oven Add-a-Shelf is a thoughtful solution to the problem of how to cook more dishes at once, but it won't turn your oven into a Tardis.
It costs £19.99 and is exclusive to Lakeland.
Pros The Lakeland Oven Add-a-Shelf is true space-saver for dishes that aren’t too big and won’t rise, such as cookies and oven chips
Cons There’s only so much shelf-space in your oven, so you still won’t be able to cook two roast dinners at once
