Lobster Apron Review and Giveaway.



There is one place in my house where I spend the most time and that is in the Kitchen. I am always trying out new recipes for the blog, but more cooking means more cleaning and one thing I find I always get wrong is that I get stains on my cloths from splatters or just touching my hands on my clothes and marking them. Indian spices such as turmeric are very healthy but the colour stains terribly. Keeping this in mind, I make sure I always wear an apron whilst cooking. I go through so many aprons each year that I have to keep replacing them frequently. I hate to wear discoloured aprons so always keep clean fresh ones in the drawer. When Lobster Homeware asked me if I would like to receive one of their new Lobster Aprons I jumped at the chance. You can never have too many aprons in the home.

My Lobster Apron arrived in a lovely white fabric bag. When I opened it, I found the cutest apron ever, white heavy duty cotton with red  lobster pattern all over it. It has a button adjustment on the neck strap so that it can fit anyone and it also has sturdy ties for the waist. However the best thing about this apron is that it is no ordinary apron. Integrated into it, is a pocket on the bib for holding a mobile phone. No more losing the mobile phone when you need it for that quick photo whilst cooking.



There are two detachable oven gloves attached to the apron, so that you always have gloves at hand when you need to lift something hot. The gloves can also be used as heat mats.This is brilliant innovation as I can never find gloves nearby when I need them and often use a tea towel which is not really safe. The apron has two loops on the waist line for holding tea towels so I am less likely to wipe my hands on the apron itself!! The apron also has two large pockets, I love this as it allows me to have a pen and pad ready at hand when I am developing recipes to jot down.





The apron is well thought out and perfect for a foodie like me as I have everything I need at hand within the apron. The apron retails at £ 35.00 and you can purchase it from Lobster Homeware. It may sound pricey but it is fantastic quality, and has so many more extras incorporated in it that it's worth it.

The aprons are also available in different designs. Lobster Homeware also support the ssafa-The armed forces charity. For every camouflage barbecue apron, they will make a small donation to the charity. That is so noble of the company, don't you think???

*** I was sent an apron to test out in my kitchen, all views and opinions shared are my own as are the photos.

As always I love my readers to try out products I use in my kitchen. Lobster Homeware have been very generous and have offered to send one simplyfood reader an apron.
