I'm a product tester - I recommend getting these Prime Day deals before it's too late

Amazon Prime Day deals have ended, but there are still some offers available. As a product tester, these are the only deals that I would buy this year

Amazon Prime Day is over, but that doesn't mean you can't checkout with a saving. We're still seeing some discounts on Amazon Prime Day. A few are even better than they were on Prime Day. If you like to spend wisely (who doesn't?), you may have been holding out before pressing 'add to cart' on that new coffee maker. Well, hold out no more. 

We all want the best we can afford, but often those kitchen appliances and homewares come at a premium. That is why Prime Day is the perfect time to invest in the best, whilst saving a little extra too. If your toaster looks tired, if you’ve been after an air fryer for ages, or if you want to treat yourself to a state-of-the-art blender, you won't see better prices until Black Friday, especially since the main sales have ended. 

If you want the best products that are still discounted now, you've come to the right place. I've tested all of the appliances below, along with our team of experts. We put them through their paces, rating them on everything from basic functions to upkeep and those handy added extras. That way, we know that these are all the best of their kind. 

The team and I have combed through thousands of deals, and these are the highest-rated products for the best prices out there. I'm particularly excited about the still-running KitchenAid discounts, but you can see what was discounted of that on our Amazon Prime Day KitchenAid deals page. For now, move quickly - we don't know when these deals will revert to their usual prices.

Best vacuum deal

Hoover ONEPWR Pet Max | was $309.99, now $177.99 at Amazon
We've called it: this is the best Prime Day deal for home products, as it's under than half off a great vacuum. It was cheaper yesterday, but it's still a good deal. While there are better vacuums out there with more gadgetry, this is the best value for money.

Best mixer deal

KitchenAid 3.5 Quart Artisan Mini Plus Stand Mixer | was $379.99, now $259.99 at Amazon
Stand mixer deals were a little light on the ground this Prime Day, and this $120 saving on the Artisan Mini is pretty rare. It's a great choice for a KitchenAid mixer without the infamous price tag.

Best mower deal

WORX WG779 Cordless Lawn Mower | was $299, now $248.93 at Amazon
This is our favorite ever lawn mower. Our eCommerce director has used it for three years and says nothing compares to its mix of value and performance. It's lightweight, cuts to the edge, and brings neat, precise trimming for a fraction of the cost of metal-body, gas-powered mowers.

Best topper deal

Tempur-Adapt Topper | was $499, now $277.49 at Amazon

Vaccum deals

Vacuums can be surprisingly expensive for such a simple appliance. These are the biggest discounts on tested vacuums.

Best vacuum deal

Hoover ONEPWR Pet Max | was $309.99, now $177.99 at Amazon
We called this the best home deal this Prime Day. When we tested it, we were hugely impressed with its strength and agility, and there's still a huge 43% saving. One of the best vacuums for pet hair, this is a must-buy.

Levoit VortexIQ 40 | was $229.99, now $179.96 at Amazon

Levoit VortexIQ 40 | was $229.99, now $179.96 at Amazon
There are hundreds of cheap vacuums on Amazon, and lots of them are terrible. Instead, try this: the best budget vacuum on the market. It lacks the bonus features of premium vacuums, but it does the basic job well. It's still reduced by 22% in Prime Day sales, so you can save even more.

Dyson Outsize + | was $949.99, now $723.62 at Amazon

Dyson Outsize + | was $949.99, now $723.62 at Amazon
Powerful, cordless, and easy to use, this is our pick for the best vacuum for pet hair in the world. The green laser shows up dust and dirt that your naked eye will miss. $700 is still expensive for a vacuum, but $200 off Dyson is rare.

Dyson Ball Animal 2| was $499.99, now $408.99 at Amazon

Dyson Ball Animal 2| was $499.99, now $408.99 at Amazon
After years of testing Dysons, I know first-hand that they make great vacuums that are always too expensive. The Ball Animal 2 is years old by now, but it's still unbelievably good on carpet. It was cheaper yesterday, but $90 off is still a discount worth having.

While we love them, top-line kitchen appliances can set you back hundreds of dollars. These are the very best, and the biggest discounts. 

Ninja JC101 Cold Press Pro | was $149.99, now $79.95 at Amazon
Best juicer deal

Ninja JC101 Cold Press Pro | was $149.99, now $79.95 at Amazon
Our tests found that this is the best budget slow press juicer on the market, and it's still 46% off, saving you even more. Sure, it can't match premium brands, but when you consider that premium slow juicers start at $400, this is a huge saving.

Best air fryer dea...

Instant Vortex Plus 6-Quart Air Fryer Oven| was $169.99, now $89.95 at Amazon
The Instant Vortex is the best air fryer we've ever tested, and it's still at the lowest price we've ever seen. Its Odor Erase technology neutralizes cooking odors and the simple controls make cooking a breeze. I especially love the see-through cooking window, where you can watch in real time as air frying transforms your food. This is a great Prime Day deal too.

KitchenAid 3.5 Quart Artisan Mini Plus Stand Mixer | was $379.99, now $259.99 at Amazon
Best mixer deal

KitchenAid 3.5 Quart Artisan Mini Plus Stand Mixer | was $379.99, now $259.99 at Amazon
After plenty of testing, I can say for certain that KitchenAid make the best stand mixers in the world. This mini tilt-head stand mixer may only have a capacity of 3.5-qt but that’s enough to whip up 60 cookies in a single batch. It's a smart choice if you want the classic full-size Artisan but don't have the budget or the space.

Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Smart Blender | was $649.95, now $527.31 at Amazon

Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Smart Blender | was $649.95, now $527.31 at Amazon
Th unbelievable Vitamix A3500 is our pick for the best blender overall. Not only does it easily crush ice and hard vegetables thanks to a powerful 10-speed motor, but it can even cook a perfect tomato soup.

Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender | was $349.95, now $299.95 at Amazon

Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender | was $349.95, now $299.95 at Amazon
Our biggest complaint with Vitamix is how expensive they can be. The E310 is one of their more budget offerings, but it still costs $350. A $50 saving is therefore an offer worth considering.

Coffee maker deals

Before I was a product tester, I was trained and worked as a barista. It takes a lot to impress me when it comes to domestic coffee makers, so you know that I genuinely recommend these. 

De'Longhi All In One Combination Coffee Maker | was $299.95, now $250 at Amazon

De'Longhi All In One Combination Coffee Maker | was $299.95, now $250 at Amazon
I love this discount, and it's still going strong. A combination drip coffee and espresso machine is good value to begin with, let alone $50 off. It tastes great, too, excelling in our tests.

Technivorm Moccamaster KGBV Select | was $359.99, now $222.13 at Amazon
This drip coffee maker would have been at the top of our drip coffee makers guide if it wasn’t for the price, and after Prime Day, it's the lowest price it's ever been on Amazon. It’s premium and makes perfect coffee, too. We predicted that Amazon would take more off the price and now they have.

Breville Barista Express | was $749.95, now $549.95 at Amazon
With commercial barista experience, it takes a lot for an espresso machine to impress me. The Express more than did the job; I loved it. The only reason I didn't like it was the price; now at $549.96, there's no question about it. I told you to wait for a bigger discount, and here it is.

Amazon is often the last place people think to buy bedding, but it shouldn't be. While beds at traditional mattress stores can cost thousands, there are a few products on Amazon that will save you hundreds of dollars without compromising on quality. 

Tempur-Adapt Topper | was $499, now $279 at Amazon
Best topper deal

Tempur-Adapt Topper | was $499, now $279 at Amazon

If you're looking for an espresso machine that'll elevate your basic coffee, without overcomplicating the process, the Breville Barista Express is the perfect option for you. It has an integrated grinder which can auto dose for the perfect espresso. As you become more confident, you can adjust the settings, but the simple interface means that you can't go wrong with your espresso blends.

Thanks to a ThermoJet heating system, the steam wand warms milk effortlessly and quickly, so you won't need to wait for the boiler to warm up. You'll want to practice milk frothing if you like a really frothy coffee, but it doesn't take long to refine your technique.

Best wood-fired pizza oven

Specifications

Fuel type: wood
Exterior dimensions: 29.1 x 15.4 x 28.5 inches
Cook surface: 13.2 inches
Best type of pizza: Traditional Neapoloitan

Reasons to buy

+
Intuitive to use
+
Portable and compact to store
+
Hot and ready to cook in 15 minutes
+
Simple gravity-fed wood hopper 
+
Delicious authentic wood fired pizza

Reasons to avoid

-
Requires more attention than the gas alternative
-
Accessories aren't included

Wood-fired pizza ovens are second to none. Nothing can recreate the smoky charred crust like one, so we were overjoyed that this is a good one. Even though wood can be daunting to light, the Fyra 12 is easy to set up and use. Our experts had it up and running in 15 minutes. The app is fill of recipes and helpful hints that help make this an effortless process. 

This applies to all wood-fired ovens, but you'll need to give it attention. Re-stoking the wood pellets often is important, but also make sure not to overheat your oven either. It's also worth noting that Ooni products don't come with a pizza peel or slicer, so you'll need to buy extras like a specialised wood pellets and a thermometer

Helen's full Ooni Fyra 12 review has all the details.
