From the chopping board to kitchen paper, all cooks reach for tried and trusted favourites when whipping up a meal. But are they always the best for the job?
Lakeland says it’s time old stalwarts were given a makeover — and has released a weird, spiral potato masher it claims is superior.

And that’s not the only innovation vying for space in our kitchens. So, can you teach an old gadget new tricks?
OLD: Standard potato mashers are metal spatulas with holes, through which you push boiled potato. I always need a wooden spoon for scraping lumps from the side of the pan.

A genuine game changer.
OLD - Anything - Try - Wheel
OLD: Knives cut anything! Why try to reinvent the wheel?
NEW: A handheld gadget into which you insert different square blades depending on the shape you wish your food to be. Pop in a carrot or piece of cheese, press down and everything is — they say — cut perfectly. It has a pot attached to the base into which the food falls.
VERDICT - Lot - Force - Carrots - Veg
