Whether you’re getting on board with the latest smoothie hype, cooking everything from scratch or looking for the perfect post-workout dinner, we’ve got you covered. From juicers to health grills, here are our top 6 products to help you enjoy the British summer – however short it may be.
Summer fruit juices are by far the easiest and most refreshing way to get your five-a-day. Some juicers even go the extra mile to lock in those essential nutrients and refreshing flavours, by slowly blending up the fruit and veg. This model from Sage pulverises your food to give you the perfect consistency for soups, smoothies or juices. Because our juicers are so easy to use, the whole family will be cooling down with a glass in no time!
It’s really easy to master homemade bread this summer. Forget kneading and proving, these powerful kitchen gadgets do all the hard work for you – all you need to do is measure and pour in your ingredients. With this Morphy Richards model, you can choose from 19 different dough programmes. This means that you can create gluten-free bread recipes, or even add in nuts and dried fruit for an extra bit of flavour. With one of these bread making wonders, the whole family can enjoy picnic sandwiches no matter how they like their bread buttered.
Grilling al fresco on a BBQ can be a really healthy way to enjoy your food, but you can’t always rely on the Great British weather! To recreate that outdoor flavour in the comfort of your kitchen, a Health Grill like this George Foreman is ideal. Because they’re non-stick, you don’t have to use oil or butter to cook with. They also drain off any excess fat from your meat – all whilst keeping moisture and flavour locked in. This means you can tuck in to deliciously grilled chicken kebabs or beautifully cooked burgers without the grease. The best thing? Some models have removable grill plates you can pop in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
Making your own sauces and dips is a great way to cut out hidden sugar and salt. Our range of food processors, including this model from Kenwood, are perfect for whizzing up salad dressings, pesto or mousses. The huge range of attachments make it really easy to chop and grind your fresh ingredients – great for giving your curries a little spice mix kick, or giving your stir fries a nutty crunch.
We all deserve something sweet every now and then, and a blender is the perfect thing to make your favourite treats without any guilt. With a variety of attachments available, models like this Braun hand blender allow you to satisfy your sweet tooth and get creative with your milkshakes and ice creams. And when you want to switch to savoury, you can blend your food to the ideal consistency so you can enjoy anything from wholesome homemade hummus to perfect peanut butter.
Sniffly nose? Itchy eyes? There’s probably some pesky pollens and allergens floating around your home. By far the easiest way to combat hay fever and allergies this summer is to give the air in your home a good old detox with an air purifier. These work by filtering out any of the irritating allergens and pollutants, leaving you with clean, safe air. Dyson’s clever Pure Hot & Cool Link air will even test the quality of your air, and automatically switch on when your home needs a boost of fresh, cool air.
