This Morning presenter Ruth Langsford has been in self-isolation with her husband Eamonn Holmes since the coronavirus pandemic began, and she has been spending a lot of time in her kitchen. From cottage pie to her mum's signature breadcrumbs and a special Easter feast, Ruth has been giving us all of the cooking inspiration, and she's also revealed all of the appliances and kitchenware that she uses to create her recipes. The best bit? They're all easily affordable and will instantly transform your culinary skills. Because when better to learn than in lockdown? Take note…

An Instagram post of Ruth revealed that she uses a cream Kitchen Aid mixer to bake cupcakes. At £399, it's the most expensive of Ruth's appliances but will last you a lifetime, while you can make practically anything. Use the dough hook for pasta, pizza or bread; switch to the whisk for cake mixtures and changes to the flat beater to tackle heavier mixtures such as mashed potato or frostings.

Again, it'll last you forever, while the store offers a two-year guarantee.
