This month here in the SLOAN! office we have been inundated with amazing products from some of the biggest and brightest names but we’ve also received products from some less known brands that still managed to catch our eye. There wasn’t enough space to include everything but we have carefully selected five of our favourites to include in a special SLOAN! Extras feature. We hope you’ll love these excellent products as much as we do.
Ice cream makers don’t get better than this. There are dozens of machines on the market with the endorsement of some big name chefs and personalities but Sage have teamed up with the undoubted master of culinary art Heston Blumenthal himself to produce this awesome ice cream maker that we can see ourselves using all year long. The full review is coming soon.
This stylish bag does not only look good but is capacious enough to carry both a laptop and files so it makes the ideal modern update to the briefcase and smarter alternative to messenger bags. Our reviewer especially liked the very secure Velcro fastening which is almost too good at keeping the bag closed!
When we heard about this real leather bean bag footstool sold exclusively by BeanBagBazaar we just had to try it. The black version goes with everything but it is also available in brown and tan. As well as being a great footstool to put your feet up we also discovered that it makes the perfect little table which has proved very useful in the office lounge.
Reed diffusers are the modern alternative to the rather dated pot pourri (a SLOAN! pet hate)and a much more stylish and safer choice compared to fragrance plug-ins with their artificial aroma. MadeByZen is one of our favourites and their Fresh Mint & Grapefruit is now a SLOAN! office favourite with it’s aromas of zesty grapefruit and crisp mint accentuated with hints of spicy ginger.
Someone in the office commented that sandwich toasters were passé but with the launch of the new Breville Deep Fill Sandwich Toaster we think a renaissance of the toastie is on the horizon. We loved the super deep-fill sandwiches the toaster produced, even the most generous of fillings did not leak and it was really easy to clean with easy-to-remove dishwasher safe plates. This is the best sandwich toaster we’ve used but my office colleague will still be ordering his Caprese Panini.
