1. The Jacqueline

If you’re looking for sleek, basic counter-top appliances then the Jacqueline, a chrome-finish smart kettle, from Casa Bugatti, is one of the best looking around. Designed by the good people behind the luxe car brand, its shape is actually inspired by the traditional handbag. It can be connected via Bluetooth to the brand’s app so you can control the kettle from bed, to set a precise temperature, time, or to keep it warm, and even offers a function for warming baby bottles – something new parents might find phenomenally practical. It costs about €329, ex-delivery, from Amara.

portofino is a tribute to made in Italy. A 2017 Red Dot award winning six-burner range cooker, portofino is a triumph of professional kitchen design. The fact that its three-fan oven can roast a bird to a moist yet crispy brown is one reason to love it. The fact that it self-cleans is another, but it is the colours – sunshine yellow, olive green, deep russet red and burnt orange, as well as black, white and stainless steel options – that makes this a workhorse device that has Italian Riviera good looks. It costs €2,549, while the matching chimney hood, available in the same range of colours, costs €629, from branches of Harvey Norman nationwide.

Miele’s CM550 coffee pot

Coffee is now a breakfast essential. You can make a fine brew using a humble Bialetti moka pot – but percolate on a very low temperature and with the lid open to let the crema form – or opt for the barista gold standard, a La Marzocco Linea Mini for the home. Handmade in Florence since 1927 and delivered to Ireland through a UK distributor, it costs from €4,175. A good middle ground buy is Miele’s CM550, a Which? magazine best buy. A barely audible device, it comes in a fashionable rose-gold finish, with flavour-conserving grinding and many dishwasher proof components. It costs €949.99 from DID Electrical.;

If you don’t want a big chunky fridge dominating your kitchen, then Fisher & paykel’s Cool Drawer is a very sleek alternative. The multi-temperature drawers measure 855mm wide by 557mm in depth, and can function as a fridge, a freezer, a wine cooler that offers two different temperatures (one for red wine, the other for white), a chill bin setting that will keep white wine or beer frosty or as a pantry. You can install in the kitchen or entertainment area and it can be moved from one setting to another in seconds. At €2,000 per drawer, it is expensive but an amazingly efficient use of space within the kitchen, says paula Meegan of Dundalk-based Michael Briscoe Electrix. She suggests you visit the brand’s showroom at North Dublin Corporate park to see first hand how much volume each drawer can take. Nigella Lawson is a fan.;

The combo microwave oven (€999) turns humble veg into something far more satisfying, while the warming drawer (€599) will deliver restaurant-like polish to dinner parties and will also prove bread, while the induction hob (€1,199) can be fitted with a downdraft extractor hood (€2,299) that keeps overhead clutter-free. All are available from KAL in Cittywest.
