The best Black Friday home appliance deals
Dyson cyclone V10 animal extra cordless vacuum cleaner: Was £449.99, now £299.99, Argos.co.uk
When we rounded up the best cordless vaccuums for our review, this one easily made the cut. “It’s easy to move along carpets and wooden floors, while the max setting has incredible suction,” praised our writer. We loved how easily it picked up animal hair from carpets and upholstery and we actually found it relatively quiet for such a powerful device. Our only niggle was the price, but now that Argos has sorted that, there’s nothing to stop us from adding it to our basket.
Hotel Chocolat velvetiser, copper: Was £109.95, now £89.99, Amazon.co.uk
Tis the season for hot chocolate and now is the best time to upgrade your drinking experience by investing in Hotel Chocolat’s popular velvetiser. Akin to a traditional milk frother, the machine works by simultaneously heating and whisking milk and hot chocolate together to create a silky smooth mixture with a frothy top. In our review of the velvetiser, our tester said it “felt really luxurious” and made “each drink feel like a mini experience”. Just don’t forget the marshmallows.
This is the cheapest Amazon’s smart doorbell has ever been, and while it’s the entry-level model, it packs in all of the most important features you would expect. It can be hardwired into your existing doorbell’s electrics, or into a socket.

As for its cooking performance, all you have to do is “bung in your chopped up raw potatoes with a tiny amount of oil”, and you’ll “return later to faultless, evenly cooked fries”. A must-have appliance for any foodies among us.

It features the brand’s signature anti hair wrap technology, which uses a specially designed comb to actively separate and remove hairs as you clean. This “worked well, as did the lift away feature, which allows the cylinder to disconnect from the body of the vacuum allowing more flexibility to clear hair from hard to reach places around the home”. A great vacuum cleaner now at the pocket-friendly price of £189.

A similar model featured in our guide to the best pressure washers, where our tester said: “Highlights include the space at the bottom of the pressure washer into which the hose can be tucked, and the wand’s three-part construction, which makes storage easy and quick.” They added: “We also appreciated the chunky trigger, which made it easy to operate even when our hands were wet and soapy.”
