4. Joseph Joseph Nest Chopping Boards, Opal, Set of 3: was £25, now £17.49

Think clever and ergonomic kitchenware and the name Joseph Joseph automatically springs to mind. We're particularly fans of the brand's colour-coded chopping boards, which are great for avid bakers. Use one for meat (for pies), one for fruit while making compote, and other for slicing your freshly baked loaves.

Don't tell Mary Berry we said so, but a food processor is pretty good at whipping up a bread dough or a cake mix at speed. And it can prove more versatile than the albeit gorgeous stand mixer we've suggested above. This compact 800W model comes complete with a thermo-resist glass blender, reversible Slicing and grating discs for all your quick meal prep tasks. And additional dough hook and whisk.
