Hello 2019… and hello new! Dive into Everhot kitchens for every home.

150 Marine Blue (FLAT) V1 (2), (HI RES)

2019 has made a call for house renovation, and a kick up the bum for us as we’ve had some exciting news over Christmas – and we need to be ready for another little person joining the family!

Kitchen may not be first on our priority but we’ve been looking at every option we have… and the cold bitter weather and the need to ever be a bit more energy friendly to assist with the bills had led us to look at the full range of Everhot cookers…

An Everhot is a cooker where the kettle’s always poised to make a fresh coffee, where cakes are evenly baked and where the family can warm their hands while you enjoy a glass of wine.  Providing the beating, warm heart of the kitchen, it will quietly provide a steady heat all-day while using less than half the energy of a comparable range cooker.

A good range cooker should last a lifetime. Instead of needing 35 amps of electricity – like its major rivals – an Everhot is designed to work on a ‘trickle feed’ of less than 13 amps. This means (quite apart from much lower energy bills) it is particularly well suited to running off solar panels and water turbines. (Which could also lead into our VERY future plans – but will keep the cooker relevant to our household forever)

Everhot say that their blue sky thinking means that its cookers are also easy to control and great to cook on and there is no need for servicing or any complicated flues or pipes – making it easy to take your Everhot with you when you move home too.

We spotted this gorgeous just launched NEW Marine Blue cooker (they offer 15 colour options so there really is an Everhot for every kitchen – see below) which would look fabulous in a new modern or even a country kitchen. The marine blue would look amazing in a sea/river side kitchen looking our onto the scenery.

Everhot cookers, fifteen colours are: Dusky Pink, Fern Green, Aubergine, Black, Blue, Burgundy, Cream, Dove Grey, Graphite, Green, Sage, White, Teal and the NEW Victoria and Marine Blues.

Everhot 150 (Marine Blue), from £10,275; Everhot 90 (Dusky Pink), from £6,575; Everhot 100+ (Aubergine), £7,695;; Everhot 110 (Teal), from £8,775

48 hours in Prague…

Prague is a must-see city – it has endless history & architecture, amazing food & drink and breathtaking views across & all around the city! 
Here is a short guide to the city with restaurant recommendations, sightseeing and travel tips!

After our flight touched down we headed straight for a taxi – make sure you get a taxi with the 40/28/6 tariff clearly visible on the outside of the car, and check the driver name too. (It’s always good to have googled your route too so you don’t get take on a full car journey around Prague. (Never hail one on the street either as you can be charged through the roof!)

Next time though we will be getting the Metro & Bus because if your hotel is pretty central and you only have hand luggage, you can buy a daily travel card which is only 130k which works out around £4.30 or a three day card for around 300k (£10). This gives you travel on buses, the metro and all trams too… meaning you can get a bus number 100 to Zličín where you can then pick up a 20 minute Metro ride straight into town. Easy! The whole tram system is pretty great too with plenty of stops and most hoteliers are very helpful with where your nearest stop is too! 

Food and drink was extremely reasonable too! For a couple of pounds we got great street food and found Czech dishes that tasted amazing too! (Watch out for places that don’t display their prices though as we got stung on our second day where we walked the entire city for some of the best views!)

Clout out the chilly air whilst visiting city with this mouth-watering Clam Chowder with chunky bread from @theirishtimesbarprague situated close to the famous Charles Bridge (15th century) down a small side street. Sit under heaters and a blanket and enjoy whilst the world goes by! 

Fancy Vietnamese? Then head to must-visit restaurant @redhotchilli_bistro 🌶 We had some of the tastiest food from the whole of our trip here! Inc this amazing vegetable tempura and a beautiful coconut spicy curry with rice… We will be heading there again next time we visit again for sure!

Whilst you’re out sightseeing – take a walk up to the Petrin tower, a smaller replica of the Eiffel Tower, there is a monastery near by which you can take a look at and the view is breathtaking. You can walk up over the Charles bridge, past the castle and up the hill towards the monastery, and either walk back through the park, and gardens or take the funicular railway (also included in your travel ticket) back down the hill. You will find many of the older trams running along the lines at the bottom there too – so take the chance to get a seat on one of the original cars as opposed to a lot of the newer tramcars which run along most of the lines… 

Now take a moment and book your trip to this amazing city…
