After sitting through the past few weeks of Masterchef Goes Large, it’s easy to believe that cooking is some exacting science best left to the professional. In truth it’s not – anyone can cook, it all depends if you can be bothered to do it.
If you really can’t summon up the energy to turn on a cooker and fill a pan with fresh ingredients, may I introduce you to the Samsung Smart Oven. It uses "Smart Codes" – unique 2D barcodes with pre-programmed settings for pre-prepared meals from frozen food kings Birds Eye. Scan the code, throw in the box and your meal will be cooked "to perfection".
Ideal for those with a busy lifestyle – though personally, I wouldn’t like to face a lifetime of ready meals, convenient or not.
The oven is available now for around £300.
