With all the monthly sales going on, it's probably a good idea to take advantage and get your hands on a cool new home appliance upgrade to make your home better. After all, nothing beats the smell of a brand-new vacuum packed with HEPA filters to keep your floors clean, or a simple but effective multi-adapter for all your different power plugs. Here are our five favourite home appliances to level up your place with.
Dyson V12 Detect Slim
Powered by lasers, the Dyson V12 Detect Slim and its laser-equipped Fluffy cleaner head makes cleaning fun, and shows you just how dirty your floors are. Besides the laser Fluffy head, the V12 also comes with an anti-tangle screw, and a crevice pipe with lights. It’s all you need to keep your home dust-free, really. Alternatively, consider the Dyson Omni-glide if you're looking for a more compact cleaner.
Samsung Jet Bot+
If you're lazy and prefer a robot to do all your cleaning, the Samsung Jet Bot+, with its automated Clean Station, will be perfect. It features a docking station that automatically empties the Jet Bot+'s bin, which means you barely need to do anything. That’s pretty darn cool.
ZGN Universal Power Strip T11
The ZGN Universal Power Strip T11 does away with a big problem I have at home — having adaptors for all my different gadgets. I own a bunch of stuff from the US and China, which uses flat two-pin heads that don’t fit into the standard three-pin UK plugs here. The T11 model also comes with three USB ports, making it really easy to charge your devices.
Youpin Deerma DEM-DT16C Dehumidifier
Our region’s humid weather is great for avoiding cracked and dry skin, but we pay for that in mold growth. It’s worse if there’s continuous rain, as the cool moisture-filled air makes it easy for mold to pop up everywhere. That’s why the Youpin Deerma DEM-DT16C Dehumidifier is ideal to keep air dry — especially in the toilet and storeroom, where mold is prone to gather.
Xiaomi Mijia Cordless Electric Screwdriver
The Xiaomi Mijia Cordless Electric Screwdriver set features 12 steel bits that work for most screw types, including six-sided Torx screws. It can be recharged through a USB-C port, too. It’s perfect for quick home handyman work and is a great way to level up your home appliances street cred. Cheap and good, it's a definite can buy.
