For those partial to a luxury hot choc, there's one kitchen gadget that's proven to be very popular among shoppers and influencers - Hotel Chocolat’s Velvetiser.
Why we rate it
Hotel Chocolat’s Velvetiser is a great buy for those looking to recreate luxury hot chocolates in the comfort of their own home.
This creation, by Dualit, makes divine hot chocolate with real grated chocolate flakes in under three minutes.
It's super-simple to use - all you have to do is plug it in, add your chocolate flakes, a dash of milk or water, and a syrup if you like, then let it heat up and whisk the contents into the perfect hot drink.
The Velvetiser is fitted with a removable whisk, while the interior is coated with a non-stick material, which makes washing up a breeze, (although it is not suitable for dishwashers).
It comes complete with two ceramic podcups, worth £20, as well as a one-year guarantee.
Shoppers can also get their hands on chocolate sachets from Hotel Chocolat, which come in a variety of flavours, such as salted caramel, orange, milk, dark or white chocolate and many more.
Some customers have even said the Velvetiser also works well on coffee and other frothy drinks.
The Velvetiser comes in three colours, white, copper or charcoal, all of which are currently in Amazon's Black Friday Sale and Currys Black Friday sale reduced to £89.99 - that's almost 20% off the original retail price.
What the reviews say
Aside from The Velvetiser regularly starring on Instagram, it has also received glowing reviews from customers at Hotel Chocolat (where it boasts 864 five star reviews).
“Fantastic, velvety hot chocolate, easy to use, and a super selection of hot chocolate flavours.”
“Got given this as a Christmas present as I love a proper hot choc but hate the stuff you buy in the supermarket and make at home. This makes hot choc just like the coffee shops. A silky, velvety, slightly frothy hot choc - amazing.”
“Game changer! Love the stylish copper pot and amazing hot chocolate it makes. Would highly recommend.”
Buy it: The Velvetiser | £89.99 (Was £109.95) from Amazon
