Flashback Friday: What Was Hot On Black Friday


The year seems to be in a state of flux time-wise: though it feels like it’s kind of dragging, it’s hard to believe that Black Friday was already one week ago. With that in mind, we spoke with our good friends at Ultimate to see what was selling like hot cakes fresh out the oven.

1. Do the robot

Robot cleaners are the way to go for so many households, it’s no surprise to see them at number one. Whether you want to kick back and relax or get other chores done is up to you, but at least you know the little guy has got your back.

2. No cords to tie us down

Wireless headphones just seem to keep improving, whether earbuds or over-ear headphones. Long-lasting battery life, impressive sound quality, 10m distance from your gadget…the pros are pretty much endless.

3. Fry ’em up

Food had to feature at some stage, and these air fryers can cook up a meal in no time. No need for oils to get that scrumptious crispy finish, these gadgets come with a variety of cooking settings, so they’re both versatile and easy to use!

4. Get them colour TVs

Wisest words ever sung by Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, and advice heeded since the 80s…and on Black Friday too. There are of course plenty to choose from, with each one having better specs than the previous…what’s not to like?

5. Staying awake

The coffee love affair is one that never ends. Not only that, but it seems our need for it has grown, as coffee machines made the list at number 5. Whether it’s for those working from home, or those who need it at the office, or simply to have some good coffee no matter where you are, we’re thankful the Coffee Gods have graced us with this tech.
