From dishwashers to washing machines, and ovens to fridge freezers, our pick of the best swoon-worthy kitchen appliances combine the latest gadgetry with glamorous good looks

 

THE TRIPLE-GLAZED OVEN

Perfect for open plan kitchens and families with young children, Belling’s stainless steel single multifunction oven (B160MPCSS) features a triple glazed oven door with soft closing, so the whole exterior remains cool to the touch during use. Additional features include an electric grill, nine cooking functions, temperature probe rotisserie and catalytic liners for easy cleaning. €399.95, Did.ie

 

THE HIGH-PERFORMANCE HOB

At 90cm, Fisher & Paykel’s frameless glass induction hob (C1905DTB3) is the perfect cooktop for large families or those who like to entertain. It has five cooking zones that can be bridged to form two smart zones – perfect for larger pans or roasting dishes. There's also a powerful dual zone that automatically detects the size of cookware. The low settings are so low you can melt chocolate without a bain-marie, while the power boost function means you can boil water quicker than you can with a kettle. €1,499, Fisherpaykel.com/ie

 

THE EXTRA-LARGE FRIDGE FREEZER

Liebherr’s BluPerformance side-by-side, A+++ fridge freezer (SBSbs8673) combines generous internal space - all 629 litres - with super energy efficiency and quieter operation. Advanced BioFresh technology enables food to stay fresh and retain its quality for up to three times longer than in a conventional fridge. It’s also frost-free and comes with a plumbed-in ice maker. €3,299, Myliebherr.ie

 

THE SUPER-SMART WASHER/DRYER

With a ‘One Go’, non-stop cycle that conveniently washes and dries loads of up to 3kg in just three hours, AEG’s 9000 series washer/dryer is perfect for busy households. It also uses up to 40 per cent less energy and water compared to a standard washer with a Woolmark Blue Certification, which means you can safely clean and dry woollens without fear of ruining the fabric. €1,000, Aeg.co.uk

 

THE SUPER-EFFICIENT EXTRACTOR

This wall-mounted extractor by Bosch (DWW09W460B) is as efficient as it is slick. Its striking black pyramid hood has an impressive extraction rate of 410m3/h, ensuring your kitchen is odour free in no time. It features three power levels and is suitable for ducted or recirculating air. From €389, Bosch-home.ie

 

THE REVOLUTIONARY HI-TECH OVEN

HyperFocal: 0

Miele’s new Dialog oven promises to revolutionise how we cook using electromagnetic waves. It can cook meat more uniformly, so it retains its juices and bakes bread without a crust. Even more impressive, at an audience presentation, an uncooked fillet of fish embedded in a block of ice was placed in the oven and came out cooked with the ice still frozen. Miele.ie

 

THE AUTOMATIC VENTING COOKTOP

Steam and odours be gone. Gaggenau’s CV282 flex induction cooktop comes with an integrated ventilation system, which automatically vents the air whenever the cooktop is in use. Genius! It has four rectangular cooking areas, removable, magnetic twist pad control and is available with or without a stainless steel frame. From €4,000, Thedesignyard.com

 

THE TV COOK FAVOURITE OVEN

This TV chefs oven brand of choice is also a firm favourite with wannabe bakers on The Great British Bake Off. What makes Neff ovens so special? The award-winning CircoTherm feature for starters. It allows for simultaneous baking and roasting. This C27CS22NOB built-in model has it as standard and a whole lot more, including 13 heating options, pyrolytic cleaning and a steam cooking function. From €1,000, Neff.ie

 

THE WIFI-ENABLED WASHING MACHINE

At long last, smart home technology has reached the washing machine. Siemen’s wifi-enabled washer (WMH6Y790GB) lets you access and control the machine remotely via an app, thus saving you time and money. The A+++ machine also features a sensor-controlled stain removal system for removing the most stubborn stains and a textile guard re-proofing programme for gentle waterproofing of outdoor textiles. From €900, Siemens.com/ie/en

 

THE WATER-SAVING DISHWASHER

The Government may have suspended water charges but that doesn’t mean we can start wasting water again. Ikea’s integrated Rengöra dishwasher can wash up to 13 place settings at one using only 12 litres of water – and it gets everything sparkling clean. Additional features include a five-dish programme, height adjustable upper basket, delayed start and water stop system, which detects any leakage and automatically stops flow. €400, Ikea.ie
