Any recommendations for kitchen equipment


My hands are getting increasingly painful. Carrying mugs from the kitchen to the living room is getting harder, my husband has Parkinson's so I have to carry the drinks. Any alternatives to standard mugs would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello. I have problem RA hands too. Look in any online disability shop for ideas but, to get you going, melamine mugs are much lighter and/or a hostess trolley will take two mugs, and other things, at a time. I actually use the seat of my rollator😆

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    hi. I have started using a thermos mug with a lid. It can spill a little through the lid but not much. It also keeps your drink hot for longer. I even put soup in mine.
