Shark and Ninja are two of my favourite brands, just as Sharks and Ninjas are two of my favourite things. Right now this pair of non-identical-twin brands is having a joint sale, with savings on Shark's much-loved range of corded and cordless vacuum cleaners – and other chunky household goods – and also on Ninja's excellent kitchenwares, cookware and knives.

• Shop the Shark sale with up to £170 off

• Shop the Ninja sale with up to £140 off

If you've been looking for a new air fryer, vacuum cleaner or very weird ice cream maker, today could be your lucky day. However, do take note of our pricing widgets below each deal, in case there's a better price to be had elsewhere – Amazon for instance, where everything Shark and Ninja makes appears to be on sale 24/7/365.

One thing that might sway you to the official stores is that all Ninja purchases this weekend will net you a free Ninja Apron on everything and Free Ninja Roasting Forks 'with Selected Ninja products'. Shark shoppers, meanwhile, receive a free car detailing kit, with selected vacs. Okay, it's not quite the deal of the decade, but it's better than nothing.

Shark IZ300UK

Shark IZ300UK £219, was £430 at Shark UK
Get £50 off this cordless vac with anti-hair-wrap technology. It looks like a bit of a brute, and performs like one too, cleaning effortlessly on carpets and hard floors alike, even on the standard mode – no need for turbo all the time here. The battery life is very good as a result, and you can see how much is left on a handy LED screen.

With Power Fins for Shark's best cordless cleaning ever, this vac also boasts a tube that be bent in two, to clean under beds, coffee tables, your spouse, and anything else with legs.

Shark WV270UK

Shark WV270UK £130, was £180 at Shark UK
Everyone loves this super-compact handheld vac, including my brother, who actually uses it for cleaning up after his pet rabbit. You wouldn't want to do that with a lesser quality vac. This feels good in the hand and sucks surprisingly well for such a dinky thing. As well as rabbit poo, it's good for everyday spills and car boots and interiors.

The battery only lasts 15 minutes per charge on this mini-vac, but there's an attractive charger mount so it should always be ready for action. But could there be a better deal on elsewhere right now?

Ninja Foodi SmartLid OL550UK

Ninja Foodi SmartLid OL550UK £179, was £230 at Ninja UK
Get a socking £51 off one of the best air fryers and one of the best Instant Pot-style pressure cookers around. This dual purpose device has 11 cooking presets in total – including some excellent steam roast options – and a capacity of 6 litres which I am glad to say is enough for a whole chicken.

I use this machine's big brother, the OL750UK practically every day, and it is an excellent performer. £51 off and a free apron is not to be sniffed at, particularly if you desperately need an apron.

Ninja NC300UK

Ninja NC300UK £169, was £200 at Ninja UK
This Ninja Ice Cream & Dessert Maker has 7 presets: Ice Cream, Gelato, Sorbet, Smoothie Bowl, Light Ice Cream, Milkshake & Mix-Ins. The last one lets you evenly distribute chocolate chips, nuts and so through your freshly-made frozen dessert. With summer approaching, this could be a very timely purchase, with a handy £31 off.

This machine uses a highly unusual technique to make frozen desserts. You freeze the ingredients beforehand, then it pushes a blender blade through it at high pressure. I've tried some of the results and they were very tasty indeed.

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
