The Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser, £89

Forget that watery stuff you cobble together from store-cupboard powders – there’s now a simple way to create delicious hot chocolate at home.

Hotel Chocolat has teamed up with kitchen-appliance king Dualit to create the Velvetiser, a gadget that can make the indulgent drink in just 2.5 minutes. Open the top, pour in milk followed by some of the brand’s finest chocolate and press the button.

The Velvetiser will heat the milk to 67-69°C (the exact temperature at which cocoa solids melt), its built-in whisk will fold everything together and minutes later you’ll be sipping a barista-quality drink.
