1. Tefal Fresh Express Cube and Stick
Perfectly julienned carrots are not worth the threat of slicing your ingers off with a mandolin. Luckily this device removes the element of danger: just feed it your fruit and veg and it will cube, grate, shred and, yes, julienne to your exact specifications, dropping produce into a bowl beneath.

2. Best Grills: Philips Avance Taste Infusion
This glorified barbecue lets you infuse your meat with lovely smoke, wine and herb flavours via the reservoirs at the back. Only the middle of the grill has the heat for proper charring, though the edges still come out very tasty.

3. Best Grills: George Foreman Family Grill & Melt
Fat drains smartly into the drip tray on this lean, mean, etc machine, whilst your meat sears beautifully in between scorching hot plates. It’s a tad on the small side though – maybe George Foreman’s “Family” isn’t any too peckish.
