If space is at a premium in your kitchen, and money is no object, Caple's new Sense C5100 oven doubles as extra counter space when it's retracted into your cabinets.

It's all self-powered so the oven and its clever see-through glass shelving rise from your counter at the push of a button. And thanks to strategically positioned sensors, there's no worry of a finger or other tools getting caught and crushed when the oven retracts.

A strip of touch-sensitive controls lets you specify what you're cooking so the oven can automatically set the perfect temperature for finicky items like bread or pizza, but just keep in mind that its £2,000+ price tag doesn't include the installation and possible re-modeling necessary to make room for the C5100 in your kitchen.
