This ultra-stylish wood-effect clock looks amazing in any setting, combining contemporary and traditional, digital and analogue. The beautiful wood-effect casing and cutting-edge ‘floating’ LEDs make it stand out from any ordinary analogue clock. As well as featuring dots for the hours and the digital ‘hands’, an extra red dot marks every second as it magically dances around the circular face. You can activate the display by clapping your hands, or set the clock to display the time permanently. A real showstopper.
The Micro Grill lets you enjoy all the benefits of speedy microwave cooking, but with authentic oven-cooked results. It has microwave-activated heating elements in the lid, base and sides, so the food bakes, browns or roasts just like it would in an oven. It’s great for fish, steaks and burgers, as the ridges on the cooking plates give them that real grilled taste complete with authentic grill marks. You can also make delicious toasted sandwiches and cook casseroles, chicken wings or roast potatoes. A brilliant way to speed up your cooking without losing any of those lovely oven-baked looks and flavours.
This unusually-compact Kalorik air fryer will cook healthier fried food for under £50, and without using up too much worktop space. Very user friendly, it circulates hot air to cook anything from skinny fries and potato wedges to fish goujons and chicken Kiev, all to crispy perfection without using any oil at all. You can also bake, roast and grill without changing a single setting. Taste and texture are miraculously maintained, but there’s no hot oil to worry about, almost no odour, and clean-up is easy thanks to the dishwasher-safe cooking basket
This mini air purifier is the chemical-free solution to those horrible lingering smells of last night’s cooking or take-away. Simply plug it into a 3-pin wall socket and it will help the odours disappear. There are no fiddly filters to replace, and it costs only a few pence a day to run. It operates silently, generating activated oxygen and negative ions to remove airborne pollutants such as odours and dust. Most of the particles are ‘magnetised’ and trapped on its easy-clean metallic ionisation plates, so you can soon see for yourself how well it’s working. We tested ours in several kitchens and the plates turned black in no time! Also handy for hallways, bedrooms and landings, as it has an in-built LED nightlight to help you find your way after dark.
Ushanka hats became standard issue for Soviet troops after huge numbers of them died of the cold during the Winter War of 1939-1940. Meaning literally ‘ear hat’, the Ushanka is probably the most protective winter hat ever created, with thick fur flaps that can be lowered to protect your ears and neck when the wind really bites. Authentic military badge is removable.
