One of the best gifts I have ever bought for myself is the Meater +, an innovative wireless meat thermometer that transforms your cooking experience. With its advanced technology and sleek design, Meater+ allows you to monitor the internal temperature of your food from your smartphone, ensuring perfect results every time. It has an impressive range and the cloud connectivity makes it convenient for both beginners and seasoned chefs. Whether you’re grilling, roasting or smoking, Meater+ provides accurate, real-time temperature data and handy alerts, ensuring your culinary creations are consistently cooked to the required doneness. It’s the ideal kitchen companion for avoiding the often overdone roast. The Original Meater, €109; www.meater.com.

Sage Combi Wave 3 in 1 Oven
For those who love to entertain, having two ovens might be the dream, but reality (aka space restraints) can often suppress those dreams. Enter the Sage Combi Wave 3 in 1, a smart, space-saving multifunctional oven that can microwave, roast and air fry. Smart algorithms direct power to where and when it’s needed to create the ideal cooking environment, while the cook from frozen setting will be appreciated by many. For me, the dedicated ‘soften butter’ setting is reason enough to invest in this. No pressure. Sage Combi Wave 3 in 1 Oven, €529.90; www.sage.com.
