January sale deals on kitchen appliances
The January sales can be a great time to bag a bargain, but trudging around the shops and searching online can be timely and boring! You can sit back and relax as Which? has done all the hard work for you in finding the best kitchen appliance deals this January.
Before you buy: Make sure you don't waste money on cut-price products that don't live up to expectations, costing you more money in the long run. Visit our kitchen product section to find reviews on a range of kitchen appliances, from fridge freezers to freestanding cookers, and coffee machines to food processors.
Every item goes to the Which? lab for rigorous testing based on what's important to you. Only the ones that are easy to use and clean and do the job they are designed for exceptionally well can become Which? Best Buys.

Whenever you find a bargain in the January sales, it's always worth doing a quick online search to check it isn't cheaper somewhere else. Many good deals are also available from more than one place online, so if you're ordering from one shop, see if the other items you want are the same price there too - the more you buy in one place, the more you could save on postage.
It's also worth looking in the kitchen and dining section as a number of products are reduced there too, such as this DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200 coffee machine which is reduced by £180, making it £269.99. But is this coffee machine worth the high price tag?
Although the main Argos January sale has finished, you can still get three for two on all colour-matched kitchen accessories and cookware, half price on small kitchen appliances and £100 off large kitchen appliances. However, we found the Flavel Aspen AP10FR dual fuel range cooker reduced by even more, its price has been slashed by £130.
Argos also has a clearance section featuring a range of home and garden products including kitchen appliances.
John Lewis sale
There are some large appliances deals with around £50 off, but as with all sales deals, it's worth checking the price against the best prices listed on our site as we've found some reduced items to be cheaper elsewhere, such as this Bosch WVD24460GB washer dryer.
There are also a number of special offers on food preparation appliances, such as free recipe books or accessory kits. The majority of the prices aren't that cheap though, so it's worth reading our guide to food processors, kitchen machines and mini choppers to make sure you are spending your money on the best product.
You can make savings of around £50 on washing machines, dishwashers, fridge freezers, hobs, cooker hoods and cookers. It's worth taking a look at our appliance reviews to find out how each model does and how reliable each brand is.
You can also get up to 50% off small kitchen electricals, although there are only a small number of offers available.
House of Fraser sale
You can get up to 50% off homewares, utensils, cookware and appliances at House of Fraser, although most items have around £10 off. We found this Morphy Richards Meno toaster reduced by just over £20.
Get up to 70% off a large range of cookware and utensils and up to 50% off coffee machines, kettles, toasters and food and drink preparation appliances, such as this Kenwood Multi Pro FP250 food processor reduced by £85. To find all these deals visit the Debenhams electrical section and the dedicated sales and offers page.
Tesco Direct sale
Tesco's Big Sale offers up to 50% off small kitchen appliances and vacuum cleaners. There isn't a huge selection of offers, but we found this Kenwood FP980 Multipro Excel food processor reduced by £64.09 and the Sharp R270 microwave reduced by £49.50.
Sainsbury's has up to 50% off a range of items for the kitchen, from microwaves to kettles. If you like matching kitchen appliances, you can save £30on the Bodum Bistro hand mixer, £25 on the Bodum Bistro kettle and £30 on the Bodum Bistro toaster, all available in a range of different colours.
It's also worth taking a look in the home and garden section for other deals that aren't flagged up on the sales page, such as this Krups Dolce Gusto KP2100 coffee machine, reduced by £25.46.
