All of our reviews, best lists and gifts guides contain links to where our favourite products, tested impartially, can be purchased. Based on these sales, we've featured the products from appliance and kitchen equipment categories that sold the most. The selection was based on this data alone and was not impacted by ads, affiliate deals or paid sponsorship.

Bestsellers list

Last month’s trending products, top-rated by our experts and bought by you, the BBC Good Food community.

Cosori Pro 4.7L air fryer

Star rating: 5/5

Cosori Pro 4.7L air fryer

This is one of the most understated and stylishly modern air fryers on the market. Its seven pre-set functions are selected using a tempered glass touchscreen panel, offering efficient ways to cook chicken, fries, steak, seafood and veggies. We enjoyed utilising its bacon function during testing; an unusual novelty for machines currently on the market. We reduced traditional temperatures by 10C to account for its surprising efficiency and ferocity on air fry and roasting functions. If you’re cooking for two or want side dishes for four, this compact air fryer is a practical choice that looks great on the countertop. Read our full Cosori 4.7L air fryer review.

Ninja Foodi ZEROSTICK 24cm frying pan

Star rating: 5/5

With a non-stick coating that our reviews expert Lydia Anderson deemed ‘exceptional’, plus the versatility of allowing hob-to-oven cooking up to 260C for finishing off dishes, Ninja's ZEROSTICK frying pan performed far beyond its £39.99 RRP during testing. We used our triple-tested American Pancakes and a basic omelette recipes to assess the effectiveness of the non-stick. Each slid off the surface easily without leaving any residue, although the pancake batter spread further than we would have liked but the results were very tasty. Read our full Ninja Foodi ZEROSTICK frying pan review.

Judge Sabatier IV knife block set

Best knife set under £100

During testing, BBC Good Food expert Judy Yorke found this knife set to be the best of its kind for under £100. Solid and compact, the set includes a 9cm paring knife, 14cm boning knife, 15cm cook’s knife, 20cm carving knife and 20cm bread knife, along with an integrated sharpener on the corner of the block which is a useful addition. All are well-balanced to use and dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.

Available from: Horwood (£85)

Breville Halo rotisserie air fryer

Star rating: 5/5

Rotisserie air fryers are a great choice for achieving evenly crisp chips or perfectly tender chicken, thanks to the mechanism that keeps ingredients turning whilst hot air is circulated around it. This allows every nook and cranny to be reached for cooking that’s quick, efficient and adjustable for getting the most out of your ingredients. We wanted to press our noses right up to the glass during testing to watch the trussed whole chicken and raw chipped potatoes turn whilst illuminated by its interior light. Read our full Breville Halo Rotisserie air fryer oven review.

Fridja F1900 whole fruit juicer

Star rating: 4.5/5

Tall, robust and efficient, the Fridja juicer squashed fruits whole during testing, which meant very little prep was required for use - a real time saver. If you’re in the market for a juicer, this model will get the most out of your leafy greens and fresh fruit. We looked for smooth pressed juice that was bright and vibrant in colour without any foam or grittiness during testing, which this model delivered. A firm cleaning brush, jug and strainer attachment are included in the box. Read our full Fridja F1900 whole fruit juicer review.

Smol all-in-one dishwasher tablets

These dishwasher tablets arrive directly through the letterbox every month on a subscription tailored to you and your dishwasher usage. We loved the 100% plastic-free recyclable packaging as much as the powerful cleaning performance during testing.

Gousto

Star rating: 4.5/5

Cardboard box with a selection of groceries in one half, and eco chill box on the other

This was the highest scoring recipe box service out of all we’ve tested and was named the overall winner of the category by BBC Good Food experts. Being one of the original recipe box providers, Gousto has an accomplished roster of 60+ recipes on a menu that rotates every week. If you like adventurous flavours and quick, convenient cooking, you won’t be disappointed by the quality of ingredients.

Grind

Best for never running out of coffee

Having started in a café-bar in East London, Grind coffee is now available online, either as individual products or a subscription service. Compatible with Nespresso Original machines, the brand’s coffee pods are not only compostable, but also organic and ethically sourced from sustainable farms around the world. The house blend impressed during testing, offering a smooth and richly flavoured espresso that was topped with a caramel-coloured crema. The free Grind tin with your first subscription delivery is a nice perk.

Available from Grind (from £13.50)

Simply Cook

Star rating: 3.5/5

Unlike most recipe subscription boxes, Simply Cook's is letterbox sized. Each delivery contains four recipe kits, and the dried ingredients to which you add your own fresh ingredients. It’s a flavour-packed option with a recipe list that offers a good mixture of cuisines. On a practical note, this is a simple recipe box to store with the pots stacking easily in cupboards.

Available from Simply Cook (£10)

Blue Coffee box

Best for gourmet coffee 

Blue coffee box

Whether you have your own coffee grinder, espresso machine or cafetière, a coffee subscription will see specially selected coffee beans or ground coffee delivered through your door to pep-up your kitchen cupboard with fresh and delicious coffee. Blue Coffee Box is an independent and ethical subscription that’s certified plastic-free and offers free UK delivery across all its gourmet selection.

Available from Blue Coffee Box (from £7.49 a month)

Ones to watch

Our pick of the best new or back-in-stock products to get your hands on this month.

Gozney Dome pizza oven

This pizza oven sold out globally in under eight hours when it launched. BBC Good Food expert Barney Desmazery shares why: "This is the professional restaurant’s pizza oven of choice, made in miniature to fit a larger garden." It’s incredibly precise, featuring an integrated thermometer and offers a host of optional extras unmatched by others on the market. Bakers take note – the steam attachment could be a game changer for baking bread outdoors. And it’s back in stock! Read our full Gozney Dome first look review.

Available from Gozney (£1,499)

Ninja ice cream maker

Traditional ice cream makers spend between 20-40 minutes churning a mixture until frozen. However, Ninja’s new gadget ‘creams’ a pre-frozen base with a chunky blade in under three minutes. It’s loud, efficient and produced the exact same silky and creamy textured frozen treats as the conventional method. Read our full Ninja Ice Cream Maker review.

Our Place Perfect Pot

Launched soon after the brand’s viral Always Pan, the Perfect Pot is Our Place's next multifunctional piece of cookware. It has a ceramic, non-toxic and non-sick coating and comes with a modular lid, roasting rack and nesting beechwood spoon. It's also a practical 5.2-litre capacity which comfortably held a 1.5kg chicken during testing. We put potatoes and chorizo in the base of the pan with the chicken above on the roasting rack to cook our one-pot chicken and chorizo and new potatoes recipe. Although we felt that the roasting rack's legs were a little short which affected the ratio of chicken to potatoes, the dish was perfectly cooked. Read our full Our Place Perfect Pot first look review.

Available from Our Place (£140)
