will be taking a break over the Christmas and New Year period, from 19 December 2011 to 9 January 2012. Thanks for tuning in over the year to get all the biggest news as we reported it, and staying in touch with great comments and feedback.

We’ll be back online and in your inboxes from the start of next year, with a plenty of hot topics and breaking news on the world of appliances, technology and retail.

And if there’s any breaking news, be sure to pop by before then. Just like your refrigerator, the Current team is always cool and switched on.

Merry Christmas!
