Take action

  • Take action on added sugar

    Right now it's nearly impossible to work out how much added sugar is in everyday food and drinks. But Health Ministers have agreed that this is an issue, and early this year they'll be meeting to decide on a way forward.

    Can you help send a strong and powerful message to our politicians by posting them a letter?

    Handwritten letters that show support for improved sugar labelling can get this issue over the line.

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.

Gadgets for home cooks

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