Breville Traditional Crepe Maker

£30, www.argos.co.uk

Using 1000kW of batter-bronzing power, the Breville VTP130 (to give it its full name) can do nought-to-pancake in a few minutes and comes with a T-Stick, the utensil of choice for crepe connoisseurs.

Stonebake Pizza Oven by Giles & Posner

£50, www.prezzybox.com

Instant new career. Serves many. You will need: dough, tomato sauce, cheese, oregano… and a motorbike. Delivery time: 12-15 minutes. Go.

Cuisinart Overstuffed Sandwich Maker

£50, www.johnlewis.com

Say no to toasties that blow lava-hot cheese up your nose on the first bite. This deep-pocketed beast will ensure your sandwich delivers an entire meal into your left nostril. But only if you really overstuff it. And why wouldn’t you?

Breville Toaster Radio

£50, www.firebox.com

What a long climb back it’s been for English toast. Once the snack of choice, it’s been usurped by European treats – crepes, pizza, ciabatta rolls, waffles. Now it’s fighting back with a radio on board. And we salute its underdog style.

Cuisinart Professional Waffle Iron

£55, www.amazon.co.uk

Better known for his chocolate-topped moules-frites, when Johnny Belgian’s in a hurry, he gets his waffle on. And why not?
