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.
But this year, Amazon went one step further by launching its deals a whole month early. 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 and Superdrug have also started their sales weeks earlier too.
Home appliances are regularly featured every year in the shopping event, with products from brands such as KitchenAid, LG and Bosch being discounted. 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.

The brand also featured twice in our guide to the best robot vacuum cleaners.

Dyson small ball animal 2: Was £249.99, now £199.99, John Lewis & Partners
The larger model of this upright bagless vac featured in our round-up of the best corded vacuum cleaners, with our tester noting how she was “genuinely amazed at the results. It has excellent allergy filters, a long hose and is a strong performer in tight corners and nooks and crannies.”
As this one is more compact in size, it takes up 30 per cent less room than the larger model, so if you’re short on space, it’s the perfect choice. If you’re considering upgrading your current hoover, now is the time to do so, as you can save £50.

In our recent review of the best slow cookers, our tester found that “when it comes to cooking a succulent roast, this lightweight machine won, hands down.”

With a large water tank you can save time on refilling it, and the SteamGlide soleplate promises to help you glide on all types of fabric. 2600 watts of power offer a powerful performance and a “drop stop system” should do just that.
