Black Friday – aka, the biggest shopping event of the year – is marching into its third day, and it’s safe to say we’re as ready as ever to find the best offers.
Running across the weekend and culminating into Cyber Monday on 29 November, the annual sale bonanza seems to get bigger and longer every year, with more retailers joining in on the action and slashing prices on everything from games consoles to mattresses and electric toothbrushes.
Follow live: The best Black Friday deals still available now
While there are thousands of offers to snap up across the shopping event, Black Friday is of particular interest to anyone that loves interior design, has just moved house or has had a big appliance go kaput, because KitchenAid appliances, air fryers, coffee machines and more often see huge discounts as part of the pre-festive frenzy.
With all of this discounting action, we know it’s easy to be overwhelmed. So, through the Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday, the IndyBest team will be keeping a keen eye out for the best discounts across home appliances and a host of other categories, including TVs and laptops, beauty products, kids’ toys and more.
Here, we will continually be bringing you the best deals from Shark vacuum cleaners to coffee machines. So be sure to bookmark this page for the best savings.
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 vacuums 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.
Shark anti hair wrap flexology IZ201UK cordless vacuum cleaner, orange: Was £349, now £179.99, Currys.co.uk
Tired of annoying wires cramping your style? A cordless vacuum is the way to go. Now just £179.99, this model survives for a whole 40 minutes on a full charge, and prevents dust and allergens from being released into the air while you clean – a real plus for allergy sufferers. Here at IndyBest, Shark vacuums are already a firm favourite, with one of its cordless offerings landing top spot in our cordless vacuum cleaners edit. Our tester was particularly impressed by the similar model’s anti-hair wrap function, adding that the vacuum emptied and charged easily too – dubbing it a “well-priced machine with some brilliant features.”
Ring wired video doorbell: Was £49, now £34, Amazon.co.uk
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. It alerts you to visitors as they approach your door and allows you to see and speak to them live through your smartphone or home smart display, no matter where in the world you might be. You can also subscribe to Ring Protect for more features, such as rolling recordings stored in the cloud.
Tefal actifry genius+ FZ773840 air fryer: Was £220, now £99, Currys.co.uk
Cook up a storm in the kitchen with this air fryer that featured in our review of the best. Owing to its nifty features, including a self-stirring paddle, preset functions and automatic temperature adjustments, “you’re in air-fryer heaven” here. 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. Check out our video review of the best air fryers, which this features in.
Delonghi autentica ETAM 29.510.SB bean to cup coffee machine: Was £599, now £369, Currys.co.uk
A caffeine fix can do wonders on dark mornings, and thankfully Black Friday is the perfect time to invest in a new coffee machine. This Delonghi appliance is likely to offer you barista-quality Java at home since a similar model landed a spot in our review of the best bean-to-cup machines. Our writer praised its “slim and sleek” design and the fact it “encompasses much of the technology of pricier machines”. This Delonghi autentica features a milk frother for perfecting your latte art. And now with nearly 50 per cent off, you can’t go wrong.
Shark klik n’ flip automatic steam mop S6003UK, steel grey: Was £149.99, now £99, Amazon.co.uk
What exactly does a “klick n’ flip”, entail, we hear you ask. Essentially, it’s a function allowing you to flip the mop over, providing two microfiber cleaning pads, rather than one. Said to oust 99.9 per cent of household bacteria, the appliance also creates a concentrated blast of steam to help keep surfaces squeaky clean. While we haven’t tested this exact model, we have reviewed a similar Shark steam cleaner. Our tester noted that their tiles “were restored to a shade of whiteness we never knew existed.” They went on to add: “Trust us: manual mops will look truly primitive once you’ve got to grips with this dirt-busting miracle machine.”
Ninja foodi 7.5l multi pressure cooker air fryer dehydrator: Was £229.99, now £178.99, Argos.co.uk
Steam, sauté, grill, bake – is there anything this nifty appliance can’t do? Landing a spot in our best pressure cookers edit, our tester was wowed by its baking function, and appreciated how easy the pressure cooker was to use, adding: “With an easy turn dial control, LED screen and countdown timer, it was a cinch to produce a melt-in-the-mouth beef casserole in half an hour.” They did note that the price was a little steep, but with £51 off right now, the Argos Black Friday sale has seen to that.
Bosch 06008A7972 high pressure washer easyaquatak 120: Was £109.99, now £66.99, Amazon.co.uk
Blast through stubborn mud, mildew and stains with this pressure washer from leading brand Bosch, which comes with a host of accessories to help you tackle a range of jobs, from cleaning the patio to washing your car. Handy and compact, the machine and its accessories can be easily transported thanks to its practical handle and low weight of 4.7kg, which also makes it great for storing away when not in use. 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.”
Nespresso creatista pro SNE900BSS coffee machine by Sage: Was £679, now £499.95, Johnlewis.com
The only thing hotter than coffee right now is this deluxe appliance. With almost £180 off and Nespresso products selling out fast at John Lewis & Partners, now could be the best time to invest in the cafe-quality coffee machine. Sage claims it can whip up two cappuccinos in 65 seconds, while the fully-automated steam wand means you can perfect your latte art at home. In our review of another Nespresso machine, our tester loved how quiet it was. Since this machine is a quiet mark-awarded product, we think it’ll be just as good. Another thing we love about Nespresso machines is how easy to use they are – and this one is no exception. Adjusting the coffee volume, milk texture or temperature seems like a simple task with the creatista pro.
Philips wake-up light alarm clock: Was £140, now £84.99, Amazon.co.uk
If you’re not a morning person, then the solution is to invest in a sunrise alarm clock. And we’ve got just the one for you. This one has previously featured in our review of the best light-up alarm clocks, where our writer praised the gadget’s ability to mimic a holiday-worthy sunrise. There are 20 brightness settings, different natural sound choices, and an FM radio setting. If that’s not enough to persuade you, the brand is clearly one you can trust as a similar model took a spot in this year’s round-up too. Snap this up now and say goodbye to those groggy mornings.
Secret Linen Store violet white 100% linen bedding: Was from £32, now from £25.60, Secretlinenstore.com
There are few things in the world that beat the feeling of fresh sheets on the bed, and now with 20 per cent off this gorgeous set from Secret Linen Store, your next set will feel even better. Featuring in our round-up of the best linen bedding, our tester awarded this set the best buy, saying: “This is a beautiful, vintage-inspired bedding set, evocative of a French chateau of yesteryear. In pure snowy white, it’s as soft on the eye as it is to the touch.”
Sage barista express espresso machine: Was £599.99, now £417.99, Amazon.co.uk
Calling all coffee lovers! You can now snap up this high-tech espresso machine for a fraction of the normal price. Designed to create delicious coffee from bean to cup, the machine comes with a built-in grinder and interchangeable filters. It also uses digital temperature control technology to precisely gauge the temperature of your water, ensuring your espresso tastes great every time. Plus, it has a micro-foam steam wand, which you can use to master latte art, or at least try to.
Shark cordless handheld vacuum cleaner: Was £129.99, now £99.99, Lakeland.co.uk
This handheld vacuum will reach into all the nooks and crannies when you’re in need of a quick clean-up. It charges while it’s stored and gives you up to eight minutes of cleaning time per charge. Plus it comes equipped with crevice and pet hair tools, too. Our reviewer liked that a similar Shark model was “wonderfully lightweight, making it easy to wield in a cramped car” in our guide to the best handheld vacuum cleaners.
Le Creuset 96209400001000 3-ply stainless steel cookware set, five pieces, silver: Was £480, now £299.99, Amazon.co.uk
We’re big fans of Le Creuset, with its casserole dishes repeatedly making it into our round-ups. Right now, you can save 30 per cent on the much-loved kitchen brand’s five-piece saucepan set that contains a milk pan, 15cm saucepan, non-stick omelette pan, shallow casserole and deep casserole pan – all with lids. The versatile set allows you to rustle up a whole range of meals for any occasion, while they’re also suitable for ovens, grills and the dishwasher.
Nilfisk core 140 pressure washer: Was £240, now £168, Halfords.com
Pressure washers are handy tools to own when it comes to cleaning a wide range of items, from mildew-covered patio tiles to cars and bikes. However they don’t come cheap, which is why we’re pleased to see this one in Halfords’s early Black Friday sale with an impressive £72 off. The Nilfisk core 140 model was described as “an incredibly powerful piece of kit” in our review of the best pressure washers, where it won best buy. “Many of the features are ones we wish we saw more of,” our tester said. “For example, instead of having a safety catch on the trigger, there’s simply an on/off switch next to it – flick it on and the trigger will move freely, while flicking it off will lock the trigger in place.” For all the latest deals and information, read our guide to the Halfords Black Friday sale.
Hisense wide American style multi-door fridge freezer with water dispenser: Was £749.99, now £599.99, Very.co.uk
This super spacious fridge freezer is a good choice for families as it has plenty of room to hold all your shopping, including three separately temperature-controlled compartments that you can adjust according to your needs. It also comes with a water dispenser that gives you cooled water at the touch of a button and, thanks to its total no frost technology, you shouldn’t ever need to manually defrost it either. While we haven’t tested this model, Hisense has featured in other IndyBest round-ups, including our guide to the best washing machines, so we can certainly vouch for the brands’ reputability.

Take the work out of keeping your home clean with the help of iRobot’s Roomba i7+, which currently has an impressive £200 off. Taking convenience to a new level, the robot vacuum learns and adapts to your home and even cleans up after itself – it comes with a clean base, which it automatically empties into at the end of each session. We’re also big fans of this vacuum as it featured in our round-up of the best pet vacuum cleaners. “The combination of suction power, rubber encased foam rollers and a spinning three-pronged brush meant that the i7+ did a great job of clearing the floors,” our writer said.
Russell Hobbs steam genie aroma 28040 garment steamer: Was £59.99, now £39.99, Argos.co.uk
Not a fan of ironing? Then you might want to pick up this garment steamer, which claims to smooth away creases while infusing your clothes with a fresh scent. Designed with a ceramic heated pressing plate that’s ready to use in 45 seconds, the brand says it delivers six minutes of steaming time and can even kill up to 99 per cent of bacteria in 60 seconds. While we haven’t tested this model, a different version featured in our guide to the best clothes steamers, with our reviewer praising the Russell Hobbs gadget for “super quick crease-busting”.

A similar model featured in our round-up of the best cordless drills, with our tester saying it is “a lot more than just a kitchen drawer drill and is more than capable of completing most medium-sized household jobs, from putting up hooks to installing some baby gates”.

Enjoy peace of mind when away from the house with the nest indoor security camera, which connects to Google’s cloud servers so you can take a look at what’s happening (or not happening, ideally) while you’re out and about anywhere in the world.
