How can I cook food in my kitchen with sight loss?

There are many changes and adaptations you can make to:

  • shopping in supermarkets
  • labelling your purchases
  • lighting in the kitchen
  • colour and contrast
  • peeling and chopping techniques
  • using gas and electric cookers.

Further information about making these changes can be found on our Cooking web page and in our Cooking tips factsheet:

We sell a number of cooking aids on our online shop.

Information on choosing an appliance can be found in Thomas Pocklington Trust and Rica's Choosing cookers, ovens, hobs and microwaves guide:
