One pot, homemade meals

These appliances are great for every kind of chef – beginner, expert, chefs-on-the-go or the batch meal cookers. With little input from yourself, you simply pop your ingredients into the pot, adjust the temperature, set a timer and go.

You can leave your slow cooker cooking on a low heat for long hours (even when you’re not there). Meaning you can go about your day and come home to the smell of a delicious, ready to dish, dinner.

Choosing the best fryer for you

Shop all fryers

Why should you fry it?

Fryers are a great kitchen accessory. They're faster than cooking on the hob, their covered lids make them safe to use and they create less mess when cooking.

A deep fat fryer is a popular choice for homemade chips, succulent chicken or delightful doughnuts. Many models still have the traditional baskets for dunking your treats. If you’re looking for a healthier option, air (or health) fryers create the same great tastes and textures, but with less oil. Meaning there’s less fat for a healthier option.

What can you cook in an air fryer?

Let's talk grills

Shop all health grills

Are health grills better?

Yes! A health grill is quickly becoming a kitchen essential. Not only are they compact and easy to use, they can toast, grill or sear everything from meat to veg to perfection.

What are the benefits of a health grill?

  • Cooks food faster.
  • Drains away excess fat – for healthier meals.
  • Some models include non-stick, dishwasher safe plates.
  • Durable – so they’re a great investment.
  • Can cook between 3-10 portions, depending on size.
  • Variable temperature control on certain models.

    Picking the best blender

    Shop all blenders

    It’s all in the (food) prep

    Blenders are great for helping you slice and dice all your ingredients. Which one is best for you depends on your needs and what you’re cooking.

    Hand-held blenders
    A slimmer option, so they're easy to clean and store in small kitchens. They’re great for small portions and softer ingredients too. Simply click in one of the attachments and adjust the speed – just be wary of the splatter if you go too fast too quick.

    Perfect to break down bigger portions and larger ingredients like vegetables. That’s why they make great smoothie makers too – just look for the additional attachments, so you can easily transport your smoothie.

    What to cook?
