With many of us feeling the post-Christmas pinch, it may not be the time to make another big purchase. But, if you have saved up some pennies or you’re being forced to buy because one of your white goods has broken, then there are some appliance bargains to be had. Here’s our pick of the deals…
Bush A127Q Washing Machine
In a striking silver hue, which should go with the chrome finishes adorning most modern kitchens, Argos has this Bush model reduced from £319.99 to £189.99, a saving of £130. It has a generous 7kg drum, which is big enough to fit a lightweight double duvet in, so should be fine for the family wash. It’s also got lots of handy features including a hand wash cycle and a 30-minute quick wash.
Hoover VHC691BS Condenser Tumble Dryer
If all these rainy washing days are starting to get frustrating, then Currys has £130 off this silver model, down from £429.99 to £299.99. There’s a drying capacity of up to 9kg, eight cycles and four temperatures. A 12-minute cycle for cottons is designed to make ironing easier and there’s a sensor control so, once your clothes are dry, the dryer turns itself off automatically, meaning you don’t waste electricity.
Smeg Freestanding Dishwasher
Smeg’s 50s style appliances always look stylish and appliancesdirect.com currently has £300 off its silver freestanding dishwasher, down to £649.97. It has a AAA energy rating and holds up to 14 place settings so should certainly be enough to clear up the family dinner dishes.
Panasonic bread maker
If you fancy yourself as the next Nigella Lawson, then this should bring out your inner domestic goddess. Amazon currently has £40 off the SD-2501 WXC Automatic Breadmaker, now down to £99.95. There are a raft of bake programmes, meaning you can try your hand at rye break, wholewheat, or even some brioche, whatever takes your family’s fancy.
Cuisinart mini processor
You may have had enough of cooking if you prepared Christmas lunch, but this little gizmo should make food preparation easier for you. House of Fraser has it on sale at £30 instead of £60. It chops, purees and grinds so you can use it for garlic, onions, spices, peppercorns or coffee. It also has dishwasher safe parts for easier cleaning.
French cookware manufacturer Tefal is well-known for its hard-wearing, non-stick pans. Debenhams has £70 off a four-piece set of Tefal saucepans, now down to £100. There’s a non-stick interior, glass lids so you can see what’s cooking and a built-in strainer. They are also dishwasher safe, but aren’t suitable for induction hobs.
Vax steam mop
If you’re tired of manually mopping your hard floor surfaces, Sainsbury’s has this Vax steam mop for £49.99 rather than £99.99. It has a ten-minute steam time and 1400w element to cut through grime and grease. It also kills 98 per cent of bacteria and dust mites to give you a healthy, cleaner home.
