Mother’s Day is May 8 this year. Barista-style coffee machines and air fryers are must-have additions to any kitchen, bringing versatility, convenience and taste sensations.

Nespresso Vertuo Next Premium Coffee Machine
A stylish addition to the kitchen, this capsule coffee machine brews the perfect cup with a minimum of fuss thanks to one-button operation and clever capsule-recognition tech that reads a barcode on the pod and brews according to the coffee blend – and there are 27 Nespresso capsules to choose from. Centrifusion technology blends the coffee grounds and water together to create the perfect brew and crema. The machine suits five cup sizes: Espresso (40ml), Double Espresso (80ml), Gran Lungo (150ml) Mug (150ml) and Alto (414ml). It’s energy efficient too, with 25-second heating. Give mum one of the best capsule machines on the market.
