A massive 91 per cent of British homes have a toaster. If you’re looking to join the masses, or upgrade your tired appliance, buying one during Black Friday could save you money.
Modern toasters often offer pre-sets that take the guess work out of browning times. Our team tested a variety of models to bring you our picks of the best toasters available on the market. Speed of toasting, design, ease of use and size were among the criteria against which these models were tested.
We’re predicting savings to be available on everything from the best food processors to the best dishwashers throughout November this year. Find all the latest news and kitchen appliance Black Friday deals on our favourite tried-and-tested models.
When is Black Friday 2020?
Black Friday is an annual shopping event which originally started in America and takes place on the first Friday after Thanksgiving. Now a global event, this year’s will happen on 27 November and be followed by Cyber Monday on 30 November, offering another chance to get products on offer for less than the RRP price.
Unlike previous years, we’re seeing brands and retailers starting their discounts early to entice online customers ahead of Christmas. This is likely to ramp up now that non-essential retail shops will be closed from the 5 November until the 2 December due to new national restrictions.
