If you’ve had your eye on a coffee machine, are in need a new vacuum cleaner or you’ve been looking to upgrade your washing machine (what a chore), you’re in luck as Black Friday is just around the corner, and that means there will be thousands of deals on those annoying things you don’t really want to spend money on.
The annual event traditionally began the day after Thanksgiving and finished on Cyber Monday, however the majority of retailers have pre-sales and early-bird discounts available the week before, while last year Amazon’s discounts lasted two weeks.
To keep up with all the best early Amazon Black Friday deals, read our round-up. Other retailers including Currys PC World, O2, Boots, AO, Very, Argos and Superdrug have also started their sales weeks earlier too.

We will be rounding up all the best deals from go-to home appliance retailers including John Lewis & Partners, Amazon, Argos, Currys, Gtech, Very, AO, Asda and more.
Often pricey items see the biggest reductions, so now is the best time to invest in tools that will improve your culinary repertoire or speed up your cleaning, and just make chores that little bit easier.
To help you navigate the sea of deals, we’ll be bringing you the biggest savings throughout the Black Friday weekend and in the run-up to the event. Read on for the best early Black Friday home appliance deals to shop now.

When is Black Friday?
This year, the sale falls on Friday 27 November and runs through to Cyber Monday on 30 November.
We’re expecting lots of brands and retailers to begin sales earlier this year in a bid to increase sales after closing earlier in the year and again in the second lockdown.
The best early home appliance Black Friday deals
Dyson V8 absolute extra: Was £399.99, now £299.99, Very
If you’re looking for a new vacuum, Dyson is a go-to brand and it even featured twice in our review of the best cordless vacuums. The V11, a similar model to the V8 absolute extra, took the top spot as our Best Buy, with our tester praising it for being “mind blowingly good” and claimed it had “seriously raised the bar in the world of cordless vacs”.
The V8 absolute extra, a heavy duty dust buster that claims to perform even better than its traditional corded counterpart. With up to 40 minutes of powerful suction, it can be used to clean upholstery at home or in the car, and you can get to hard to reach surfaces, such as ceiling corners. With £100 off such a leading product, you’ll have to act fast, as we predict this will fly off the shelves. The Dyson V8 absolute pro cordless vacuum (was £399.99, now £299.99) is also on offer, providing a similar hassle-free, yet powerful cleaning experience.
Karcher K5 Premium full control plus home pressure washer: Was £449.99, now £298.80
Save a massive £151.19 on this home pressure washer, designed to clean items like your car, garden furniture and driveway. This model made it into IndyBest’s 2020 guide of best pressure washers, with our reviewer commenting: “This is an exceptionally well-built, well-engineered, user-friendly and powerful bit of kit tackles stubborn dirt, grime and algae on a grand scale, using water up to 40C. Filthy huge decking area? Tick. A driveway so long that you can’t see the end of it? Tick. Ridiculously dirty car? Tick.”
Bosch Serie 4 WAN28281GB freestanding washing machine: Was £449, now £349
Save £100 on this 8kg load Bosch washing machine with 1400rpm spin, which comes with a two-year guarantee. The Bosch Serie 4 WAN28050GB (7kg) has the number one spot in IndyBest’s top washing machine guide, with our reviewer noting: “In our view, this gives you everything you could ever really need from a washing machine. It is exceptionally quiet, almost soothingly so, and it has a good selection of cycles, including dark wash, mixed load, and a super quick setting which gets your washing done in as little as 15 minutes.”
Breville VSTO74 high gloss sandwich toaster (in white): Was £49.99, now £37.99
Get 24 per cent off this Breville toaster which has been especially made for deep-fill sandwiches. It has a DuraCeramic coating which is designed to stop bread sticking and to give even browning. The Breville deep fill VST041 model made it into our 2020 guide of the best sandwich toasters, with our reviewer saying: “At 850w, your sandwich is bubbling and bronzed after about seven minutes, depending on the size of your toastie; there’s also two temperature options so you can adjust the heat according to your filling requirements. A good value, effective sandwich toaster from the original toastie-making brand.”
Neato Robotics D650: Was £729.99, now £329.99, Amazon
Save a huge £400 on this robot vacuum cleaner that comes with a pet brush, two filters, a side brush and a cleaning tool, so you’ll be well equipped to ensure it lasts you years.
Thanks to its D-shape, the brand promises it can reach even the tightest corners and edges on both hardwood and carpeted floors. It's also self sufficient, returning to the charge base on its own, before picking up where it left off once full of juice.
The similar Neato botvac connected D7 model has also appeared in our review of the best robot vacuum cleaners which our tester found to be particularly good for pet owners as it was very effective at picking up animal hair.
Le Creuset Cast Iron 20cm Casserole and 29cm Stoneware Dish Set, 2 Piece, Volcanic: Was £235, now £141, John Lewis & Partners
Save an impressive 40 per cent and snap up two of Le Creuset’s most popular products during early Black Friday sales across John Lewis.

Containing a 20cm cast iron round casserole dish and a stoneware 29cm deep rectangular dish, switch easily from slow-cooking stews to baking bread.
We featured a similar Le Creuset shallow dish in our round-up of the best casserole dishes, noting that “it’s a brand you can rely on, with dishes often becoming family heirlooms… we found this one to be the best for our requirements, particularly given its versatility; on top of cooking risottos and casseroles, the dish is adept at browning meat thanks to its shallow depth.” Versatile, lightweight and durable, invest in these kitchen staples while nearly £100 is knocked off the price.
