Cuisinart Precision Stand Mixer, 500W|
was $249, now $179 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
This Cuisinart model is incredible value for money, and even better when there is a deal. In her review, expert tester Millie loves how it kneads bread with ease, and its easy, simple controls. It's the runner-up on our list of the best stand mixers, too.
Dyson V15 Detect |
was $749.99, now $599.99 at Dyson (opens in new tab)
Our favorite vacuum, the Dyson V15 Detect, is on sale with an unprecedented $150 discount. It offers exceptional suction, and the anti-tangle hair screw keeps pet hair from getting stuck. The most notable feature is the laser. It's no gimmick - it makes it easy to spot dust the naked eye can't see.
Instant 7.4-quart Stand Mixer, Pro|
was $299.99, now $209.99 at Instant Home (opens in new tab)
Instant recently launched its first stand mixer, and though we haven't tried yet, we wanted to share this $80 saving. If it's anywhere near as good as their air fryers and crock pots, you could be onto a winner.
Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 4 Quart Air Fryer |
was $159.99, now $109.95 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Full disclosure: we haven't tested this air fryer, but we love other air fryers from Instant - they appear in our list of the best air fryers three different times. I simply had to include this deal - it's now nearly half off, passing on a $60 saving.
KitchenAid Artisan 5 Qt. Stand Mixer KSM150PS |
was $449.95, now $349.99 at KitchenAid (opens in new tab)

KitchenAid Professional 5 Plus Series 5 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer - KV25G0XSL - Silver |
was $449.99, now $279.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
This incredibly stable stand mixer is great for working with heavy mixes like bread doughs. This $170 saving is fantastic value and makes a good choice if you can't splurge on the Artisan. It's available in Red, Silver, and Black, as well as the Best Buy exclusive Ink Blue.
KitchenAid® K400 Blender with Tamper|
was $299, now $219.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond (opens in new tab)
The heavy-duty K400 has a sophisticated 3-part blending system. In our review, the 1200W motor powered through the ice, hard vegetables, and dry ingredients, which made it our pick for the best blender for professional results.
Philips 3200 Series Fully Automatic Espresso Machine with LatteGo
was $999.99, now $799 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save on our favorite espresso machine. It achieved a perfect 100% score in eCommerce editor Jaclyn Turner's expert review, and she's still using it several times a week. It grinds fresh beans and froths milk for espresso and latte at the press of a button.
Ninja JC101 Cold Press Pro |
was $129.99, now $99.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
There's no way around it - this is the best budget slow press juicer on the market. It's the best priced juicer expert tester Millie has ever used, so while it can't quite match premium brands it comes in at hundreds of dollars cheaper.
Ninja Professional Plus Kitchen System with Auto-IQ|
was $219.99, now $169.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Our pick for the best blender for multiple functions, the Ninja Professional Plus Kitchen System comes with a 72 oz. pitcher as well as a 64 oz. food processor bowl (this has chopping and dough) and two 24 oz. blending cups for single-serve drinks to take away. It can easily crush ice and it blends delicious smoothies.
Ninja Mega Kitchen System |
was $199.99, now $149.99 at Best Buy
(opens in new tab)One of our favorite food processors, Millie loves the versatility of the Mega Kitchen System. It's a blender, portable blender, and a food processor all in one thanks to a 72-oz. round bowl for large mixes, as well as two blending cups and four different blending blades.
Ninja SP101 Foodi Countertop Convection Oven |
was $289.99, now $179.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Our review found that the Ninja Foodi 11-in-1 Digital Air Fry Oven is perfect for small countertops, as it comes with a special space-saving Flip-Up design. With eight modes in just one appliance, it offers fantastic value for money.
Ninja AF101 Air Fryer|
was $129.99, now $89.99 at Amazon
(opens in new tab)Head of Reviews Millie Fender found that Ninja's multi-functional air fryer can crisp, bake, reheat, and dehydrate with ease. The compact 4-qt. the basket can still accommodate up to two pounds of fries. Now more than 30% off on Amazon, this is a great saving on a popular brand.

Shark Stratos Special Offer|
was $429, now $299 at Shark Clean with code STRATOS130 (opens in new tab)
Expert tester Camryn used this vacuum to clean up after her dogs, and found that this vacuum's anti-hair wrap technology, saves you untangling pet hair, and its odor neutralising cartridge gets rid of pet smells. This special promotional price is available exclusively through Shark and includes a free under-appliance wand, which bends so you can reach under washer-dryers and other appliances.

What are after Christmas sales?
They're a sales period after Christmas. You can grab discounts on a range of homeware and appliances that will save you money as you start the New Year.
The more detailed answer is that retailers buy in lots of extra stock in the build up to Christmas. This is so they don’t sell out of gifts in the busy holiday period. The day after Christmas, however, demand drops, and they’re left with a heap of unsold merchandise that costs a lot to store. Retailers therefore drop their prices, shifting units for cheap to try to reduce their overheads while still making a profit. This means it’s a great time to shop, because prices are lower than usual, saving you money.
When are after-Christmas sales?
There’s lots of deals on offer throughout the holidays but the real action starts from the 26th December into the first few days of the New Year.
Are after Christmas sales as good as Black Friday?
There’s much less fanfare than Black Friday, but sales can be as good, if not better. It depends on what you’re buying and where.
For example, the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth juicer (opens in new tab) (featured in our guide to the best centrifugal juicers) dropped to its lowest price of the year on January 3rd, not Black Friday, where it was still discounted but not as much.
What was on sale last year?
We saw big discounts last year. The best sales were at Bed Bath & Beyond, where you could save up to 70% off across thousands of products (opens in new tab). You could grab up to 60% off at Macy's (opens in new tab), and there were also products on markdown at Home Depot (opens in new tab), Lowe's (opens in new tab), and Best Buy (opens in new tab).
