Thanks to Smart Inverter technology, LG’s new NeoChef microwave oven helps you to cook, reheat and defrost food more evenly.

#4 Brandt induction hobs
Brandt has launched a new collection of induction hobs, designed to improve the cooking and cleaning experience.

The touch screen controls can be temporarily locked to facilitate easy cleaning.
#5 The Fred Mirror
Like the Queen in Snow White, you may soon be able to interact with your mirror on the wall. The Fred Mirror is a next-gen smart mirror for future-ready homes. Watch videos, get your morning news and social media updates straight from the mirror while you get ready for the day.
#6 Bosch Optimum kitchen machine
Bosch’s new kitchen machine promises to mix, grate, and kneed no matter the item on your culinary wishlist. The powerful 1500 W motor can process up to 3.5 kg of sponge mixture all at once, while the dough sensor will keep the mixing speed constant, regardless of how heavy the mixture might be. With a built-in weighing function and updated sensor technology, the Optimum kitchen machine seems capable of more tasks than ever before.
#7 Tefal Silence Force 4A vacuum cleaner
Remember the cumbersome, mind-numbingly noisy vacuum cleaners of the past? Tefal promises no such problems with its latest Silence Force 4A.
