Microwaves are a versatile appliance not only because of their ability to reheat leftovers, but they cost as little as 8 cents a day to use, according to research from Utilita. So, this Black Friday is the perfect time to land a microwave oven deal.

Named the best solo microwave in our roundup, our writer said of the Russell Hobbs Scandi compact manual microwave, “If simplicity and style are at the top of your wish list, this Russell Hobbs microwave is a winner”. It’s great for “easy cooking, reheating and defrosting” and “has everything you need at a great price”.

Save £90 on a GoPro hero 9 action camera at Very

Very has slashed a substantial £90 off the GoPro hero 9 action camera in this early Black Friday deal. The hardy snapper landed a spot in our roundup of the best action cameras, receiving a 9/10 rating.

“The GoPro Hero 9 impresses with 5K recording and the addition of a very useful display on the front,” our writer said in their review. “With the new processor in the 10 Black, the hero 9’s touchscreen and overall interface response are a little lacking, but for most casual or avid users we don’t think this will be a deal breaker.”

Save £600 on a Samsung foldable phone at Amazon

Remember when phones folded and bent when we wanted them to, and then they started to bend when we didn’t? Well, we’re happy to report that the circle has come full circle and bendable phones are cool again.

That’s as good as Amazon is currently saving a cool £600 on the Galaxy Z fold3. The Galaxy Z fold3 may have been replaced by the increasingly advanced fold4, but it still managed to top our list for the best foldable phones despite the brand’s uproar, and for good reason.

We’re always ready to praise the fold4, but as noted in our review of the latest flagship model, the minor improvements make the upgrade much harder to sell than its predecessor, so we can heartily recommend the previous iteration.

Save 10 percent on ‘God of War Ragnarok’ pre-orders with this deal at Amazon

If you’re hoping to find the best gaming deals on Black Friday, Amazon has a deal on right now God of War Ragnarok that saves shoppers 10 percent on the cost of their pre-order.

It’s on track to become one of our favorite games of the year. In our 5/5 review we said: “After the dust settles and the credits roll, God of War Ragnarok is as strong a sequel as anyone could have hoped for, and a fitting ending to Kratos’ final chapter. On its own merits it’s hard to criticize, but on the fundamentals of 2018 god of war, it is nothing short of a masterpiece.”

Save £14 on a pair of Amazon echo dots

While it’s not strictly a Black Friday deal, we’ve seen Amazon have an offer where two third-generation Echo dot speakers can be bought for £29.98. That’s a saving of £14 over the usual price of buying a pair.

All you have to do is add them both to your basket and use the code “2ECHODOT3” at checkout. With a pair of these Alexa smart speakers you can set up a home intercom system or use them to create a stereo pair when listening to music.

Save £50 on a Ninja 3-in-1 Food Processor

If you’re looking for a serious, heavy duty food processor for all your lightning, pulse and puree needs, you may want to turn to Ninja’s product range.

“The advantage of this particular appliance is its 3-in-1 USP, offering itself as a food processor, multi-serve blender, and personal blender,” said our reviewer. They praised the automatic one-touch mixing and processing and also added, “These programs really took our time in our food preparation tasks.”

Save £100 on an iPad Pro with Apple Pencil at John Lewis

John Lewis is one of the largest retailers in the UK when it comes to electronics, appliances and other goods, so we expected some good deals to pop up there.

This deal knocks £100 off a bundle that includes the latest-generation iPad pro tablet, plus Apple’s second-generation Pencil stylus and the company’s magical keyboard dock. More specifically, this is the 11in version of the tablet, with Wi-Fi, 256GB of storage and the space gray color option, with matching keyboard.

One particularly pricey item you can save on during Black Friday is a decent mattress, with all the best brands — including Simba, Emma, ​​Brook + Wilde, and Otty — slashing their prices significantly for single, double, king, and super king size beds.
