Microwaves – those white or grey boxes in the corner of you kitchen, known to occasionally go "ping". Not exactly stylish – unless we're talking about the Whirlpool Max microwave oven.
It was unveiled in the US, but is now available in the UK. At first glance, this looks every bit like a colourful 70s space age TV. But instead, it's every bit the modern appliance, with "crisp plate" system to avoid burning and super-fast defrosting – seven times as fast as a traditional machine. And it'll warm up your ready meals too, as well as doing a bit of steaming.
Available in a variety of colours (including some cool limited editions), you can pick one up from just £87.
