■ A Neff fan oven. I’ve cooked with oth­ers that burn food on one side and don’t have even heat dis­tri­bu­tion. I’ve had a Neff for years and they make the best York­shire pud­dings.

■ An is­land. These are not just for show. they act as a work sta­tion, so you can chop and cook while fac­ing your fam­ily/friends. Oth­er­wise you have your back to them. It al­lows you to in­ter­act.

■ Pep­per pot radiators. They add wow fac­tor to a kitchen.

■ Dualit toaster. I love the way this looks and it makes bril­liant toast.

■ Lots of stor­age. This is a must to avoid mess and clut­ter. I love pan draw­ers. I have six of them in my kitchen. They are great for stor­ing ev­ery­thing. I have a full din­ner ser­vice in one. It’s eas­ier than reach­ing up to cupboards all the time.

■ White plates. These are a must for any cook and I learnt that on Masterchef when the pro­gramme mak­ers told me I had to have them. They just show off the food bet­ter than any­thing else.

■ Ther­momix. This Ger­man-made food pro­ces­sor is costly at £950 but it fea­tures in a lot of pro­fes­sional kitchens and it does just about ev­ery­thing from blend­ing and milling to steam­ing and mix­ing. It also heats as it blends. It helps make the per­fect soup and pasta sauces. (www.uk­ther­momix.com)
