In fourth place was the cigarette lighter, followed by the electric light bulb, the vacuum flask and the telephone.

The list, which included essentials like the cooker and the fridge freezer, also featured time-saving items such as microwaves, hairdryers and remote controls with internet just making the list at number 45.

While power showers, air conditioning and credit cards made to the top 30, the mobile phone, laptop and DVD player scraped into the top 40.

The 50th position of the list compiled by the survey of more than 500 people was taken by the tablet computer.
