Our first edit of the year is by our good friend Lucy Marr. Lucy is the creator of Sans (ceuticals) a hair and skin care range that is a favourite of ours, she is also a brilliant cook and is pictured in her kitchen testing some of her fermented goods. Lucy shares with us her five most used Everyday Needs pieces.

Martino Gamper salt or pepper spitz // $200 each - This is hands down the best grinder I have ever used. Looks incredible but best of all, it never fails to give a generous grind as the mechanics are so good. I have spent countless dollars on grinders in the past to only be disappointed. This is a must for all foodies!


Alpaca and Mohair blend socks by Polder // $45 - I'm a massive fan of these – so much so, they are the only socks I wear. They wash exceptionally well (meaning they don’t resemble a felt toy sock after two or three washes), are made from 100% Mohair and Alpaca and are great both in summer and winter.


Japanese beer glasses // $65 - I buy these for my kids (disregard title) because they are indestructible!


Japanese kitchen scissors // $115 - I’ve had these for 3 years now and they are still as sharp as the day I bought them – amazing since I use them in both garden and kitchen. They still cut paper exceptionally well!


Weck jars // $6 - $20 - I'm a mad fermenter and pickler and have tried all sorts of storage vessels – Weck win hands down. The lids don’t rust, they come in assorted shapes - brilliant for stacking into small places (I have the smallest kitchen known to man!) and allow the right amount of air to escape for fermented goods.
