Stylish home appliances

Vintage and retro are big trends and these stylish home appliances are the perfect way to go retro or introduce vintage style without having to totally redecorate.

But although they look good, do they do the job well? Our reviews and expert tips will help you decide which one is best for you. 

We assess each product thoroughly in our test labs and often find big differences between the best and worst models. Only the very best products can become Which? Best Buys. If you're not an existing Which? member sign up for a £1 trial to get instant access. 

 

1. KitchenAid Artisan KSM150 food processor 

When testing a food processor we look at how well it slices, grates, mixes, whisks, chops, blends and, if it has the necessary attachments, kneads bread. Make sure you buy one that does what it claims by checking out our food processor reviews first.

2. DeLonghi Vintage Icona CT0V4003 toaster

From browning bread evenly and toasting crumpets to safety and ease of cleaning, we've put 186 toasters through our lab tests. Find out which models come out on top in our toaster reviews.

3. Prestige 54314 kettle

When we test a kettle we look at the speed it boils, how easy it is to use, noise levels, limescale filters and of course, safety. Check out our  kettle reviews to find out which ones boil the quickest.

4. Rangemaster Classic Deluxe 110 FSD dual fuel range cooker

When we test range cookers, we look at how well they cook, how easy they are to use, and how much energy they use.  Take a look at our 81 range cooker reviews to see which ones bake the best.

5. Smeg FAB28QRO fridge

Energy usage, cooling power, noise and usable space are high on our checklist when testing fridges. We have 81 fridge reviews - find out how well this Smeg model did.

6. Miele S 7210 vacuum cleaner

Our tests for vacuum cleaners involve using a custom-built test rig that runs each vacuum cleaner over a variety of surfaces and dirt, including fine sand and pet hair. Each vacuum cleaner is tested on 288 square metres of surfaces. In total, we have 136 vacuum cleaner reviews. So how well did this Miele model do?

7. DeLonghi ECO 310 B Icona coffee machine

As well as asking coffee expert Giles Hilton to blind-taste samples from each machine we test, we also look at noise, maintenance, coffee temperature, time it takes, how much it makes and the quality of milk frothing. Our 93 coffee machine reviews show you which ones make the best coffee. 

8. Roberts Revival RD-60 radio

Looking at usability as well as technical factors, such as audio quality, aerial sensitivity and energy consumption, we've tested 81 digital radios. See our radio reviews to discover which ones came out on top.

9. Kenwood KMix HB892 hand blender 

We've found hand blenders that are good at puréeing baby food and making smoothies, as well as chopping herbs and nuts. But some aren't very durable. See our 24 hand blender reviews to see which ones offer great value for money.

10. Samson 6-in-1 juicer

We test juicers using a vast amount of fruit, including a total of 600 oranges, 10 pineapples, 150 beetroot, 50kg of carrots, 150 apples, 4kg of grapes and 4kg of strawberries. See how the 17 juicers we have tested fared in our juicer reviews.
