It has become easier than ever to achieve professional cooking results at home, thanks to the newest innovative appliance technologies and functions.

That's according to Chloe Skipp, national culinary manager at Winning Appliances.

Chloe is a passionate foodie, with almost a decade of experience in the food, events and hospitality industry, so she knows what's worth investing in for the heart of the home.

Here, Chloe details her must-have items for those who aspire to be the master chef in their own kitchen.

Steam cooking retains food's nutritional value, quality and flavour. V-ZUG's BakeOmatic feature ensures that there is no need to enter the cooking time, temperature, function or weight manually, the unique sensor technology automatically sets the appliance on your behalf, as well as letting you know exactly when the dish is ready to serve.

The BakeOmatic feature is available across V-ZUG ovens, including the V-ZUG 45-centimetre electric built-in compact combi-steam oven.

Other uses of warming drawers include proving dough, dehydrating fruit, activating nuts, or even cooking meringue.

ASKO's Elements 5-in-1 oven is also helpful in achieving great results. As the world's most flexible combination oven, it is a combination of full steam function, microwave and traditional heat and includes programs such as sous vide and steam baking.

Warming drawers have traditionally been used to keep food and crockery warm, however some warming drawers can heat up in temperature to 93 degrees, which is perfect for slow cooking, such as Wolf's warming drawer (pictured above).

Other uses of warming drawers include proving dough, dehydrating fruit, activating nuts, or even cooking meringue, which you can also do in a Siemens warming drawer.

Smeg's blast chiller is a first for domestic appliances, and can facilitate simple and straightforward preparation of dessert type foods such as sorbets.

It can freeze a freshly cooked, whole lasagna safely, preserving the taste and quality of the meal, keep it cold, and also defrost and heat it ready to eat on a timer.

The blast chiller can also cool a case of champagne, wine, beer, etc. in a little over 30 minutes.
