Excess produce to share? You can add that to the map too. Test drive: BREVILLE THE QUICK COOK
What it is: A benchtop, 2100-watt induction hotplate with 8 cooking modes plus a keep-warm function, timer and safety child lock.
Why I love it: It’s sleek, super-fast (especially at bringing things to the boil), energy efficient, easy to clean, and perfect for a sleepout or campervan. The cooling fan is a little noisy but switches off soon after cooking finishes. Model LIC400, $129.95, at department stores or breville.co.nz.
