Bloke who thought he bought bargain kitchen utensils finds out he's been cooking with kids' toys

A bloke who thought he'd bagged a bargain on kitchen utensils soon realised he'd been cooking dinner with toys made for kids.
David Rose, 39, was buzzing when he paid a very cheap £10 for a designer kitchen set to make food for his family with.
The dad from Milton Keynes thought he'd scored a typically £75 Joseph Joseph kitchenware for this discount price - including a spatula and ladle complete with their own little stand.
And little is the right word here, because his wife Hannah, 34, was in stitches when she saw him using the five-inch serving spoon.
They don't even measure up to half the size of the usual high-end pieces, as the proper versions of the cooking utensils are a standard 12-inches long.
David's wife realised exactly what the bargain-hunter had actually done, and said: “The spatula was absolutely tiny. He told me he must have ordered travel size ones by mistake.
“He’d been using them to cook for a week. I had to dig the packaging out and show him it said ‘toy utensil set’.”
The mum-of-three was beside herself at the sight of her fella stubbornly continue cooking dinner with his child-sized spatula.
And he's not planning on putting them down any time soon, as he said: "I still think I’ve got a bargain. They work fine, they’re just on the small side."
Paying only a tenner, he thought he'd scored six different cooking utensils plus a fancy rotating stand for them to sit on in the kitchen - he clearly just somehow missed the fact they're made for children ages three and up, not 39-year-olds.
Joke snaps show David committing to use his little kids-sized spatula to cook a fried egg - which basically looks bigger than the spatula itself.
Baffled by his instance to use the 'bargain buy', Hannah said: "I thought he’d give them to the kids to play with, but he insists they’re usable.”
While we're not expecting any cooking tutorials from him any time soon (although watching him make a full roast with his little utensils would be hilarious), we salute David's commitment to a cheap deal.
He said: "I wouldn’t have paid an extra £65 for bigger ones. I just have to serve out our dinner in slightly smaller portions.”
