For anyone partial to buying smoothies and soups, a blender is one investment kitchen gadget that will not only save you money over time, but offer the chance to get creative with flavours from the comfort of your own kitchen.
Black Friday is generally a great opportunity to find top kitchen appliances on offer – not just blenders, but everything from the best food processors to the best dishwashers. The models included below were tested and chosen by BBC Good Food experts for reasons including their jug capacity, noise level, safety and design.
The trick is to find one that’s not only efficient in speed, but also suitable for whatever space you have on your countertop. Tall blenders can be cumbersome to store in an average-sized cupboard, so choose one with a design that suits your kitchen. Take a look at our tried and tested favourites to help you decide which of our best blender picks will work for you.
We’ll be updating these Black Friday food processor deals regularly, along with our main Black Friday kitchen appliance deals page on our favourite tried and tested models, so check back here regularly for all the latest offers.

Best blowout blender
This blender and all its accompaniments have been designed with the user in mind. One major plus is its quietness, thanks to special technology – Sage has even gone as far as patenting it. This is a great opportunity to pick up a professional-standard blender for less than its RRP (£599.95).

Russell Hobbs Desire jug blender, Black Friday deals
Best basic blender
The simplicity of this Russell Hobbs blender is its real selling point. It was tested against 15 of the best blenders, and not only does it blitz smoothly, it’s also small on the countertop, sleek in design and simple to use.
Tefal Perfectmix blender, Black Friday deals
Best budget blender
Despite its place at the lower end of the price spectrum, a number of the Tefal Perfectmix blender’s features really impress us. Firstly, its built-in cooler helps prevents the motor from overheating. Secondly, its preset functions for ice crushing and auto-cleaning are great. You also get a large-capacity jug with this blender. RRP £89.99.

Beko stainless steel soup maker, Black Friday deals
Best blender for making soup
This gadget is an absolute treat for any soup recipe fans, offering a keep-warm function and two specific pre-sets: ‘fine soup’ and ‘chunky soup’ to suit a variety of tastes. Its robust build and easy-to-use controls lend it well to crushing ice, plus it made light work of blitzing both smoothies and sauces. There’s currently opportunity to buy this model from AO.com with a £20 ‘discount’. However, Beko has it available for £65 without a deal and is also offering 20% off at checkout with the code BEKBUY20, so we’d recommend buying direct from the brand. RRP £65.

When is Black Friday 2020?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday originally started in the US, but they’ve now become annual shopping events in the UK, too. Taking place on the first Friday after Thanksgiving, an American public holiday, brands and retailers will be dropping deals from 27 November until 30 November.
But, this year will be a bit different. With non-essential retail shops closing between 5 November and 2 December in line with national regulations, there will be greater online competition to entice customers, and we are already seeing deals go live. We’ll help you keep an eye on the price of your chosen blender as we head towards Black Friday right here.
How to get a good deal on Black Friday
- Decide on which blender to buy in advance of Black Friday. Our guide to the best blenders tried and tested is a good place to start your research.
- Visiting the brand’s product page will often give you the real RRP of your chosen blender, which will give you a sense of how lucrative or not each deal will be.
- The number of Black Friday deals can get overwhelming, so making a list of products can help you stay focussed.
- Try to stick to your budget.
- Keep an eye out for price-matched deals by the likes of AO.com, John Lewis & Partners and Currys, all of which offer a price-match guarantee.
- We’re expecting stock to fluctuate largely with all the online traffic. Because of this, we’d recommend buying when you see the gadget at a price you like.
Should I wait for Cyber Monday?
Online offers on everything from top kitchen gadgets to Christmas gifts for foodies are already going live. Cyber Monday was the best time to pick up a top deal online in previous years, but we’re confident that there will be hefty discounts on both brand and retailer sites all the way up to Cyber Monday.
