    On the Kitchen TV show Nigella serves butter on a small wooden chopping board with a handle. Where can I buy one?   

    Hello, I was wondering where I could find Nigella's silver metal jars used for storing sugar in episodes of Kitchen? Thank you, Sam

    From the nigella team:

    Nigella bought the wooden chopping baord from a deli in Ann Arbour in the US. However you may be able to find similar boards at David Mellor, either in the stores or on-line.


    Nigella bought her silver storage canisters in Paris in 1989 and they are still much loved. Unfortunately we don't know of a current source for the canisters but similar items occasionally appear on eBay and it is worth keeping an eye out on the website, or in vintage stores or car boot sales.
