1 the oven High-end brand Miele has launched a Dis­cov­ery range of lower priced ovens. The H2265B built-in sin­gle oven (H59.6xw59.5xd56.9cm) has a 76L ca­pac­ity – the largest on the mar­ket – and nine cook­ing op­tions. All Miele ovens are de­signed to last at least 20 years and parts are avail­able for 15 years af­ter the ap­pli­ance is dis­con­tin­ued. DIS­COV­ERY H2265B OVEN, £599, MIELE

2 the fridge freezer Proof you can find a state­ment ap­pli­ance at a rea­son­able price, this Amer­i­can-style A+ fridge freezer (H179xw83.3x D66.5cm) is a roomy 450L, in­clud­ing a 273L fridge and a 177L freezer. When you have a full su­per­mar­ket shop to put away, the Su­per Cool and Su­per Freeze func­tions drop the tem­per­a­ture quickly to en­sure ev­ery­thing stays fresh for as long as pos­si­ble.

3 the dish­washer Matrix is a new British brand fo­cused on no-non­sense, great value prod­ucts. Our pick is this 10 place-set­ting slim­line dish­washer (H81.8x W44.8xd57cm) with A+ AA en­ergy rat­ings and three pro­grammes – in­ten­sive, eco and pre­wash. MW200 IN­TE­GRATED DISH­WASHER, £249, MATRIX

4 the wash­ing ma­chine OK, it’s not cheap, but we think a ma­chine that gains you time is worth its weight in gold. Sam­sung’s Quick­drive A+++ 10kg de­sign (H85xw60x60cm) has a host of ge­nius fea­tures, in­clud­ing wi-fi con­nec­tiv­ity so you can set the wash pro­gramme while you’re re­lax­ing on the sofa!

5 the hob Many bud­get in­duc­tion hobs are very ba­sic but not this fea­ture-packed model from New World (W59xd52cm). The Link+ tech­nol­ogy al­lows you to cre­ate large cook­ing zones at the touch of a but­ton – some­thing pre­vi­ously found only on pro-qual­ity hobs. There are 10 power lev­els, boost func­tion and timers. NW IHF60T, £300, NEW WORLD
