New KitchenAid Artisan kettle and toaster
The new KitchenAid Artisan 1.5l kettle (£119) has adjustable temperature control from 50-100 degrees and a temperature gauge that shows you the exact temperature of the water as it boils.
Which? kettles expert Matt Clear said: ‘KitchenAid claims that this new kettle will boil ‘in record time’ – we’ll find out exactly how it compares with other kettles when we fully test it at our labs.’

The KitchenAid Artisan Toaster, in 2 or 4-slice options (£169/£269), claims to offer the 'ultimate toasting experience'.
It senses when toast is placed in the toaster and raises and lowers the toast automatically. It also has a keep-warm function, bagel setting and toasted sandwich accessory.

Re-vamped KitchenAid Artisan food processor
KitchenAid's new Artisan 4l food processor (£389) has an innovative slicing system that allows you to adjust the thickness of the slices you are creating mid-slice, without having to change the blades or even turn the food processor off.
Also new is the KitchenAid Artisan cordless hand blender (£139), which KitchenAid says is a 'busy cook's dream'. This allows for greater freedom of movement when preparing food thanks to its cordless technology.
