£60 off a 5-star coffee machine!

The Moccamaster KBG Select Coffee Machine is that rarest of things in the TechRadar world – a product that received the full 5 stars in our review

Why? Well, it has a striking design, is easy to use and (most importantly) makes a great cup of coffee. Pretty much everything you want from a coffee machine, then – and right now it’s £60 off at Amazon.

We recently awarded this hand-built European coffee maker a perfect review score (opens in new tab), and Amazon has seen fit to discount it to a record-low price just in time for Black Friday. You’ll have to go for the orange model to get the saving, but we think the Moccamaster KBG actually looks better in a slightly more vibrant colour.

This full-frame bargain is the best Black Friday camera deal so far

Cameras now. One of our favourite full-frame cameras has just fallen to its lowest-ever price in the Black Friday sales. This Panasonic Lumix S5 price cut will likely be one of the bargains of this year’s pre-Christmas sales for video creators.

We rate the Panasonic Lumix S5 as one of the best YouTube cameras you can buy, thanks to its blend of a compact form factor, 4K/60p 10-bit video skills, five-axis image stabilisation and an articulating screen. Its 24.2MP full-frame sensor also makes it a dab hand at stills, and its body is fully weather-proof, too.

Panasonic Lumix S5 with 50mm f/1.8 lens: was £2,099 now £1,299 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the Lumix S5 with the excellent 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, which makes it a serious full-frame bargain. We rate the S5 as one of the best hybrid cameras around, particularly if you lean towards shooting video. It shoots 4K/60p 10-bit video and has 5-axis image stabilization to keep things steady. The 50mm f/1.8, meanwhile, is one of the best lenses of its kind.

The best TV to pair with your games console

Looking for a TV that will pair perfectly with your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X or Series S console? You’ve come to the right place, as we’ve dug up plenty of great sales on TVs with a range of extras perfect for next-gen console gaming.

One that stands out above everything, though, is the LG C2 OLED. It’s the display that currently sits atop our list of the best TVs available right now – and you can get it for its lowest price yet at Amazon.

LG C2 48-inch OLED 4K TV: was £1,399 now £998 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If you’re looking for an excellent deal on our favourite all-rounder LG OLED before Black Friday truly begins, you’ve found it. We didn’t rate the LG C2 five stars for nothing – the picture quality is exceptional. The C2 has a sleek minimal design, great connectivity, and brilliant gaming credentials with four HDMI 2.1 ports to take advantage of the new-gen consoles. The fact it comes in a 48-inch model means it won’t even take up too much room.

Don’t miss: the best gaming laptop deal so far

Amazon is selling the Asus TUF F15 gaming laptop for just £549.99 – a £250 saving on the regular price of £799.99.

It’s easily one of the best Black Friday gaming laptop deals we’ve seen so far, and this model is particularly good for kids and teenagers. So, if you’re a parent thinking about buying your gamer offspring their first laptop, this deal is not to be missed.

With a large 15.6-inch screen with a high 144Hz refresh rate, plus an RTX 3050 graphics card, this is a great choice for anyone who wants to play fast-action games such as Fortnite or Overwatch.

ASUS TUF F15 Gaming Laptop: was £799.99 now £549.99 from Amazon (opens in new tab)
This Asus TUF gaming laptop has never before received quite this deep of a discount. For £250 off the asking price, you can get an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, 8GB of RAM and a solid 512GB of SSD storage. It’s the perfect blend of lightweight design, affordability and power, something that impressed us when we reviewed its slightly more powerful configurations.

Still using a manual toothbrush? Here’s what you need

Upgrading to an electric toothbrush is one of the best ways to improve your mouth health and get a superior clean. However, a lot of electric toothbrushes are packed with unnecessary over-the-top features and eye-watering prices.

That’s where the Oral-B Pro 1 comes in. It’s now just £25 at Amazon and does exactly what you need an electric toothbrush to do, without all the faff of Bluetooth connectivity to an app and built-in LED displays. It’s simple, it’s straightforward and it includes a handy pressure sensor to ensure you’re brushing correctly. Bargain.

Oral-B’s pro oscillating electric toothbrush, complete with a bottle of 24-hour protection toothpaste, is at its best-ever price. This makes for a good Christmas gift or a way to get a cheap upgrade from a manual brush.

Electric blankets from £29.99

It’s definitely getting colder… If, like us, you’re reluctant to turn the heating on yet, an electric blanket might be a worthwhile investment. 

Amazon has a whole load of discounts in its electric blanket selection, with prices starting from just under £30 for a budget double electric blanket from Bedsure, all the way up to, er, over £2,000 for ‘intelligent’ blankets with all kinds of smart functionality.

Personally, we’d stick to the £40-£60 mark – you can get something that does the job well in this range. But it depends on the size of your bed and how much luxury you’re looking for, of course. Here are some highlights.

Silentnight Comfort Control Electric Blanket: was £60 now from £35 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Best overall – This electric blanket from Silentnight comes in three sizes: single, double and king, each with varying discounts. You can also pay a little more for two additional versions – one gives you dual control for £57 (ideal if you have different preferences to your partner) and the other is made from ‘extra fluffy’ fleece for extra comfort (from £69). There’s a chance the price of all three versions will drop in the coming days – we saw the basic version for around £23 in February/March. But inflation has kicked in since then and there are no guarantees.

Bedsure Under Electric Blanket: was £39.99 now £29 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Best budget – There’s a 25% discount on this budget electric blanket at Amazon. It comes in double and king sizes, and has an automatic switch-off function after 10 hours, plus four temperature settings. Amazon says it’s a best-seller, and it has an average score of 4/5 stars from 500-odd user reviews. Which is good, but not as good as the SilentNight option above (which boasts a score of 4.5/5 from almost 30,000 user reviews). Still, it doesn’t come with the more luxe extra versions that the Silentnight one has, which are likely propping up that score.

was (opens in new tab)

Slumberdown Wonderfully Warm Electric Blanket (double): was £99.99 now £90 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Luxury choice – The Slumberdown Wonderfully Warm Multi Zone Single Electric Blanket has nine heat settings, a timer and automatic shut off, and a deep-filled quilted fleece comfort layer. It starts at £70 for a single and goes up to super king sizes (£100, down from £105). There’s also a cheaper version with three settings that starts from £42.50 for a single.

6 of the best deals at Amazon this morning

There’s loads going on in the Amazon sale this morning – you name it, there’s a discount. Here are six of our faves so far… 

1. Champagne, wine and whiskey: from £6.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

1. Champagne, wine and whiskey: from £6.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
With party season almost upon us, now is a good time to stock up the drinks cabinet. Amazon is here to help you do that for less, with savings of up to 28% on a selection of wines, champagnes, vodkas and whiskies. Single bottles or larger cases are available, including well-known brands such as Jameson and Absoslut.

2. Yankee Candle sale: from £1.33 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

2. Yankee Candle sale: from £1.33 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Set the right mood with this selection of Yankee Candle wax melts and candles from just £1.89. Given the time of year, there’s a wide selection of Christmas-themed scents, but you can also pick up some more universal options if you’d rather not have a home smelling of cinnamon and cedar wood just yet.

3. Nespresso Vertuo Plus Coffee and Espresso Maker by Krups: was (opens in new tab)

3. Nespresso Vertuo Plus Coffee and Espresso Maker by Krups: was £199.99 £70.39 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This Nespresso coffee maker had a £100 discount last week, and the price has dropped again in the Amazon Black Friday sale to £70 – that’s the cheapest it’s been this year. Similar to the Nespresso Vertuo Next, the Vertuo Plus can make 5, 8, 14 or 18 oz coffees and espressos, but the difference here is that the Plus has an automatic open for pods and a rotating water tank. You’ll lose out on the Next’s Wi-Fi connectivity, mind, but your water (and therefore your coffee) will stay fresher. £70 is a great price for this particular model.

Anti Hair Wrap Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner with Flexology: £379.99 (opens in new tab)

4. Shark IZ202UKTDB Anti Hair Wrap Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner with Flexology: £379.99 £189.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
You can save £189 on this limited edition deluxe Shark cordless vacuum at Amazon, which is now £10 cheaper than it was last week. There’s a lot going for this stick vac, which has a runtime of up to 40 minutes, an anti-allergen complete seal and comes with 4 attachments: a crevice tool, an upholstery tool and an anti-hair wrap pet tool. It’s a good choice of cordless vacuum for pet owners, and it’ll be a good idea to buy this deal now while stock lasts.

Wireless Headphones: was (opens in new tab)

5. Sony WH-1000XM5 Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones: was £380 now £298 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
There’s currently £83 off what are quite simply the newest and best in Sony’s class-leading wireless over-ear lineup. The older XM4 were outstanding and the XM3 before it were excellent, so it’ll come as little surprise to know that Sony’s latest XM5 proposition are also incredibly hard to beat – especially with a whopping 21% off. They’ve only been as cheap as this once before – and these cans only launched in May 2022. Our advice? This is a top deal on a winning pair of new noise-cancelling headphones.

6. LG C2 48-inch OLED 4K TV: (opens in new tab)was £1,399 now £949 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If you’re looking for an excellent deal on our favourite all rounder LG OLED, this £400 discount at Amazon is it. We didn’t rate the LG C2 five stars (opens in new tab) for nothing – the picture quality is exceptional. The C2 has a sleek minimal design, great connectivity, and brilliant gaming credentials with four HDMI 2.1 ports to take advantage of the new gen consoles. And the 48-inch model means it won’t even take up too much room.

Powerful budget smartphone gets a price cut

The excellent Google Pixel 6a has dropped to just £299 at Amazon. That’s £100 off the usual price and brings this excellent mid-range device down to its lowest price yet. 

The Google Pixel 6a is essentially a stripped-down version of the excellent Google Pixel 6 flagship device from 2021. It’s got the same speedy Tensor chip inside and overall design, but with a few tweaks here and there.

The combination of a powerful chip, a unique design, and an excellent camera makes it easily one of the most fully featured phones at this price point. In particular, the potential for camera wizardry provided by the Tensor chip – such as Magic Eraser – is something you’ll struggle to find on rival mid-range devices.

It’s also on sale at the Google Store for the same price.

With a speedy Tensor chip, excellent camera, and eye-catching design, the Google Pixel 6a is an absolute steal at this price point for those after a more affordable and capable smart phone.
