Updated for 16 July 2019 to include the latest deals
To help you spot the best kitchen and home appliance deals in this year’s Amazon Prime sales, we’ve scoured the list of discounts to highlight the gems.
There are thousands of discounted products battling for your attention during this year’s event, but not all of them will be the best deal around, and some may not do a great job when they turn up on your doorstep either.
Our product experts have searched for the best deals on popular home products, from sought-after kitchen gadgets to staples such as steam irons, microwaves and vacuum cleaners. We’ve highlighted deals on big-brand products that are good value versus the usual price across different retailers.
Popularity and a big brand name don’t guarantee greatness, though. Make sure you also read our independent reviews to ensure the product you’ve got your eye on lives up to the hype.
Best tech deals – see our round-up of the best in phones, printers and more
Coffee machine deals
From quick-and-easy pod coffee machines to luxury bean-to-cup options, there are a handful of good coffee machine deals to consider:
Pod coffee machines
- Nespresso Vertuo Krups, £99.99 – the cream version of this Vertuo pod coffee machine is down from £179.99. It’s designed for making longer coffees – think Americano rather than cappuccino – and uses Nespresso’s newer type of capsules, which means you can only use official Nespresso pods in it.
- Nespresso DeLonghi Lattissima Touch EN560.B, £158.99 – this machine is around £179 elsewhere. It’s for those who want a totally hands-off coffee-making experience and love a latte or cappuccino, as it has an automatic milk frother that dispenses foam straight into your cup. It’s the snazziest option in the Lattissima range, with flush touch controls.
- Tassimo My Way (black), £60.99 – typically listed at £85-£100, this Tassimo pod machine has more personalisation options than cheaper Tassimo models. The Tassimo Caddy (in white) is on sale for £61 too, around £29 cheaper than elsewhere. It has a storage rack to keep your Tassimo Pods tidy. One did better than the other in our independent coffee machine tests – check our Tassimo reviews to find out which is best.
Bean-to-cup and ground coffee machines
- DeLonghi Scultura ECZ351 ground coffee machine, £99.99 – this classic ground coffee maker from DeLonghi has been around for seven years, and it’s still popular. It usually costs around £130, and this is about as cheap as it gets.
- DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200.S, £224.99 – this model tends to hover between £200-£300; it’s a decent price at the moment compared with elsewhere. It’s pretty cheap for a bean-to-cup coffee machine, although it’s not the most modern-looking option. We’ve found a rare few Best Buy bean-to-cup machines around this price, so check our bean-to-cup coffee machine reviews for the best cheaper models, and to see how the similar DeLonghi ESAM2800 fared in our tests.
- Melitta Solo E950-101, £212 – this bean-to-cup machine is usually between £250-£300, and at this price is about as cheap as you’ll find for a bean-to-cup model. It’s got a much more modern look than the DeLonghi, too. We’ve tested the Solo & Perfect Milk version, which has a milk frother. This model doesn’t, so you’d need to buy a standalone frother. See our pick of the best milk frothers – we’ve found great buys from just £20.
- Sage Barista Express, £349.99 – elsewhere this machine is around £415. If you want to embrace the coffee-making experience but also use freshly ground beans, this Sage is one of a breed of hybrid models that do part of the work for you, but allow you to fine-tune the process to your tastes.
- Miele CM6150, £699.99 – this high-end automatic bean-to-cup machine is usually at least £800. If you’re partial to a latte, you’ll need to buy the milk jug separately, which is an extra £50.
Multi-cooker and soup maker deals
Keen on a gadget that does the hard work for you? We’ve spotted some good deals on popular cooking appliances:
- Morphy Richards Total Control soup maker, £50.99 – this is the fanciest soup maker around, and it will usually cost you at least £70. Choose from smooth, chunky or medium-textured soup, and you can remove the inner jug for easy cleaning. The more basic 501014 Saute and Soup is on sale for £44.99, and usually costs around £55. Compare both in our soup maker reviews.
- Instant Pot Duo 5.5L, £69.99 – this cult electric pressure cooker is usually around £100. We tried the 6-litre version alongside rivals, so check our electric pressure cooker reviews to see what we thought of it.
- Ninja Foodi, £139.99 – this multi-cooker can air fry on top of pressure cooking, roasting, steaming and pretty much everything else. It’s usually around £180.
Panasonic bread maker deals
Panasonic bread makers are popular but pricey. One model is still on offer for the 16 July Prime event:
- Panasonic SD2501WC, £79.99 – usually around £100, this bread maker has an automatic seed and nut dispenser and a range of options to choose from, including gluten-free bread.
See how other Panasonic models compare, and cheaper options from rival brands, in our bread maker reviews.
Vacuum cleaner deals
If you’re happy to keep the cord, there are some excellent deals on vacuum cleaners today. A few popular cordless options are cheaper than usual, too.
Corded vacuum cleaner deals
- Miele Complete C2 PowerLine, £124 – Pay attention, pet owners. This vac has a fluff-busting turbo floor brush, and is usually nearer £190. It’s not the first time it’s dropped to this price, but it’s been a while.
- Miele Complete C3 Silence EcoLine, £159 – bothered by noisy vacuums? This model’s speciality is staying quiet while you clean, and while it’s dropped to this price on occasion before (from around £230), this is about as cheap as it gets.
- Hoover Enigma TE70EN21001, £61 – this is dirt-cheap for a vacuum cleaner. Its usual price is around £90-£100. You won’t get lots of features at this price, but it’s a popular basic bagged cylinder vacuum that still looks relatively smart.
Cordless vacuum cleaner deals
- Gtech AirRam Mk2 and Gtech Pro bagged cordless, both £149.99 – these cordless vacuums usually cost between £185 and £199. The Pro is a rare bagged cordless stick vacuum, handy if you don’t like to deal with dust. It packs in more than the average cordless vacuum, too, so could be good for larger homes. Check our Gtech vacuum reviews to see if these models are worth getting.
- Bosch Unlimited BCS122GB, £279.99 – this is at least £400 elsewhere, so it’s a significant saving. Bosch’s flagship cordless stick has swappable batteries and a quick charger, which should mean unlimited cleaning time. Check our review to see if it also cleans effectively.
- Tineco Pure One S12 smart cordless vacuum, £399 – it’s not strictly part of Prime day, but there’s a £100-off voucher on this model on Amazon, bringing the price down from £500. It’s got the latest in cordless vac features, so is it one to snap up? See our full story on the Tineco Pure One S12 launch to watch it in action.

Corded vs cordless vacuums – how to choose
Kenwood mixer deals
- Kenwood kMix KMX754 food mixer, £169 – available in red, black, white and cream, this retro mixer is a fraction of the price of the popular KitchenAid Artisan mixer. The price tends to fluctuate between £169 and £230 over the year, but this is pretty much as cheap as you’ll find it. You even get a spatula thrown in.
If you’ve got your heart set on a stylish retro stand mixer, check our full guide to the best deals on KitchenAid and Kenwood mixers, for a more detailed look at how the different models compare, and the typical prices for each, plus the latest deals.
Elsewhere, Harrods currently has a good price on the KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM175 model in cream.

- Morphy Richards 511504 microwave, £87.99 – elsewhere, this microwave is currently £119.99, though it can usually be found for around £100. It’s got a smart retro look, and trendy rose-gold accents. The red, black and cream versions with chrome accents (511502, 511501, 511500) are also down to £77.99 from a typical price of around £90.
We’ve found a few good cheaper microwaves lately, so check our microwave reviews to compare your options.
Steam iron and generator deals
- Tefal Pro Express GV9580 Ultimate steam generator, £159.99 – this is an older model, but it’s about as low as the price gets. It’s usually over £200, so could be a good chance to get high-pressure steam for less. See our guide to the best steam generator irons to buy in 2019 to find out if there’s a better option for you.
- Tefal FV9830 Ultimate Pure steam iron, £65.99 – this iron has a massive 240mg steam shot and extra limescale protection features to recommend it. It’s usually £85 or more, so this is a decent saving. If you need to upgrade your iron, it could be a savvy buy, but make sure you check our steam iron reviews first to ensure it’s your best bet.
Amazon Prime Day 2019: shop wisely
As with any sales event, don’t assume you’re getting a bargain, and ignore the ‘before’ price.
