Black Friday may be over, but we’re seeing a lot of Cyber Monday deals on kitchen appliances right now. The problem is, with so many sales cropping up, it can be tricky to decide which kitchen deals are actually worth buying. Just because you’ve found a cheap deal, doesn’t necessarily mean it will get the job done.
As a Homes writer for over four years, I’ve tried-and-tested all kinds of small appliances. From air fryers and stand mixers to vacuum cleaners and juicers, I’ve reviewed my fair share — so I know when to spot a good deal.
Before investing, I would always consider the power, build-quality and specifications of a kitchen appliance. Other useful considerations are the size, capacity, ease of use and how easy it is to clean and maintain. In my experience of testing appliances, I always favor ease of use and practicality over fancy features that you will hardly use.
