  • Take action on added sugar

    Right now food companies don't have to label the amount of added sugar in their products. This makes it nearly impossible to work out how much added sugar is in everyday food and drinks.

    But Health Ministers across Australia have agreed that this is an issue, and they'll be meeting to decide on a way forward.

Our test kitchen

  • How we test kitchen appliances

    With 30 years' experience, our home economist Fiona Mair knows her way around a kitchen.

    In our kitchen lab, Fiona and tester Chantelle Dart (pictured) test everything from ovens and cooktops to benchtop appliances like hand mixers.

    They bake, blend, chop, roll, pulverise and puree in order to tell you which brands and models do the job best.

We test appliances in our own kitchen so we can fill you in on the best ones to buy.
