Ferrari pizza maker
The only thing better than fast cars are fast pizzas, which is probably what inspired this Ferrari-branded pizza maker’s creation. With its shiny, Ferrari red body and Italian quarry stone base, the pizza oven distributes heat better than an F1 car, creating a perfectly cooked pizza every time. You’ll have to make your own Ferrari sound effects while cooking, though.

The Tefal Chef Pro has a large three litre bowl, plus five different metal grating and slicing discs. Even if it’s just to chop garnish for your man cave cocktails, you should probably own one.
