Breville is hoping that you’ll be able to find even more counter space in your, no doubt, cluttered kitchen for its latest appliance; the Rice, Risotto & Pasta Cooker.

While cooking a risotto isn't exactly hard, that hasn’t put off Breville believing it can help you create the perfect rice dish with mechanical help.

It can cook variations of rice, pasta and risotto at the touch of a button, with no need for any manual stirring. And its ‘keep warm’ feature ensures that your food will never over-cook.

According to Breville, the 1.8-litre bowl (enough to feed four) can easily be removed so that you can serve directly at the table. And, to make life even easier, both the bowl and lid are dishwasher proof, making the whole thing really easy to clean.

The Cooker comes complete with a steaming tray, spoon and measuring cup.

The Breville Rice, Risotto & Pasta Cooker (VTP113) costs £39.99 and is available from and other good retailers.
