De’Longhi EN510 Lattissima Nespresso coffee machine
The ideal gift for regular coffee drinkers, this compact pod machine from Nespresso and De’Longhi is both good-looking and intuitive to use.
Available in black and white, it produces 19 bars of pressure to create aromatic, rich espresso with silky crema, using standard-sized Nespresso pods. There are options to customise the settings for each coffee and save favourites to help you speed up the process in the morning.
A single-serve milk frothing container is also included in the box and slots easily in the front of the machine, so you can make your own creamy lattes and cappuccinos at the push of a button. Now’s your chance to save £20 on the RRP when you shop at Hughes.
De’Longhi Dinamica Plus automatic coffee machine
Slick and efficient, this fully-automatic bean-to-cup machine will help you create rich, dark espresso and creamy cappuccinos – among other speciality coffees – in seconds.
Our reviews team rated its intuitive digital touchscreen, speedy integrated grinder, and capacious water tank, which handily pulls out from the front of the machine.
Each part of the process is also clearly detailed on the brightly lit display, with advice on how to dial in your machine to produce the best-tasting espresso possible. The best part? It’s now available at Hughes with £421 off.

Sage Bambino Plus espresso machine
Sage is renowned for its stylish, professional-grade coffee machines, and the Bambino Plus is yet another example of this. It has a robust brushed-metal body, tough plastic water tank and textured controls that are built to last, and it produces rich, thick espresso, too.
In testing, we liked its temperature control settings and milk steamer, which is capable of frothing milk for smooth lattes or frothy cappuccinos.
It was also easy to set up, and the instructions – complete with helpful diagrams and troubleshooting tips – allowed us to get going almost immediately.
Panasonic SDR2530KXC breadmaker
Our expert reviews team was so impressed by the wealth of settings offered by this machine, that they awarded it 4.5/5 stars. There are 30 programmes altogether, including a good range of gluten-free settings, dough-only, and a fruit and nut dispenser.
We also loved this model’s landscape design and that it allows for full customisation – there are three different size options and browning levels to choose from. It also baked quickly and produced rustic, handmade-looking loaves that tasted great, too.
KitchenAid Artisan 125 stand mixer
Anyone who adds ‘stand mixer’ to their Christmas wish list this year will likely have their eye on this top-performing KitchenAid model. It’s one of the brand’s most iconic products, and as with all KitchenAid mixers it comes with 10 speed settings on a sliding scale.
With the 4.8-litre model, a beater, dough hook and balloon whisk are also included – offering everything you need to bake cakes and whisk creams into stiff peaks. The accessories attach easily using a distinct twist-and-lock system, which help them to stay securely in place, even when mixing on high speeds. We also found the Artisan 125 also did a particularly good job of kneading bread dough.

Bosch MCM3501MGB 2.3-litre food processor
A good food processor will make light work of monotonous tasks like cutting, chopping and slicing, but what sets this 2.3-litre model apart is its varied functionality.
It offers more than 50 different functions, three differently sized bowls and a range of accessories, including a reversible slicing disc, a shredder, a dough tool, a beating disc, and a grinding blade.
The pesto we made with this food processor had an almost smooth texture with a good balance of chunkiness. We also used the grater attachment for prepping carrots, which produced uniform results in a matter of seconds.
