There are some things, in Britain anyway, that are absolute musts if you're going to get through the day, without getting extremely angry with the world.

There are three that spring to mind straight away: toast, tea and a bit of morning radio. Something that the Breville radio toaster has a really good go at taking care of, and anyway two out of three ain't bad.

Lack of a good cup of tea aside and this gadget has it all, as you not only get to listen to your favourite radio station, but there is the built-in toaster as well. Both FM and AM bands are taken care of and there's also a variable browning function and mid-cycle cancel tech on board.

10 preset radio channels and removable crumb tray for easy clean, rounds off the package and if you're still not convinced, blue illuminated toasting controls come as standard - yes, standard.

Priced at £49.99 from you'd have thought Breville would have fitted some kind of tea-making functionality, but it's still something you'd be proud of sitting on the counter of your kitchen.
