Summer is on the way and people will be looking at holidays and may decide on a spot of camping. So from this Sunday (18 June 2017), Aldi are set to launch their Family Camping Essentials range, which includes things from tableware to tents and even a camping kitchen unit, and I was sent a selection of the tableware items to reviews.
When my package arrived, I had received:
Aldi’s Crofton outdoor tableware is perfect for camping, BBQ’s or any form of dining in the garden or for taking on picnics. The items I received are 100% melamine in a stylish ceramic effect. They are lightweight and easy to clean (hand wash only) and available in nautical (anchor) or hearts styles.
The large tray measures 48.2 x 32.2 x 1.9cm and is large enough to take four large bowls 19cm (5cm deep) which would be great for an outdoor breakfast. It has a handle either side to make carrying easy.
The large lidded bowl, which measures 25.5 x 10cm, would be ideal for serving salad, while the rectangular platter 41.5 x 21 x 1.5cm would be great for serving the meat, sausages, steak, burgers etc.
The Anchor-shaped Bowl, measuring 340 x 300 x 50mm, while an odd shape is unique and different and would be great for nibbles.
I won’t be going camping but as the weather here is supposed to hot this weekend I can’t wait to have a BBQ and make full use of these items. They make great camping/picnic items, wash well, are are light enough to carry around in a picnic basket or backpack and great value for money.
The Aldi camping range is in stores nationwide from Sunday 18 June 2017, for more information or to find your nearest Aldi store visit www.aldi.co.uk.
