AO is having a sales blowout on a host of appliances right now. Top of the list has to be a Shark Lift Away Upright Vacuum Cleaner with a saving of £80 to be had on the list price. Have a look at the fab set of features it's got down the page where we also take a closer look at a brilliant little discounted Ninja blender. That's had £30 lopped off its RRP making it just £99.

However, if you’re itching to get all Spring clean then the A+++-rated  Hotpoint 8kg washing machine is a bit of a steal too. There’s £50 off the £299 RRP, so you can bag it for just £250. For that you get a decent 8kg drum capacity, which makes it very household-friendly plus there's a suite of programs that can tackle all kinds of laundry tasks. 

Indeed, Hotpoint reckons the machine can remove 20 of the most common stains while it’ll also add steam at the end of a cycle as an added cleaning masterstroke. A 30-minute quick wash proves mighty handy for the time-poor too.

Ninja’s brilliant little blender knocks £30 off the asking price, taking it from the original £129 right down to a magic £99. That’s not a lot of money for 1200 watts of power, a 2.1-litre jug plus blades and accessories that can tackle all kinds of ingredients. Automatic blending modes mean that the appliance does all of the work and, better still, it’s one of the easiest blenders to clean. A real bonus that.

One other AO highlight is the Bosch Universal Garden Tidy electric leaf blower. This might only have £10 off the £109 RRP, but at £99 it’s gonna be perfect for those imminent garden tidying chores that roll out come Springtime.

It’s mains powered, so no waiting for battery packs to charge and there’s a 4 metre cable so you still get plenty of freedom. The adjustable handle and padded shoulder strap means you can blow leaves around for as long as you like, without fear of fatique setting in.

The real icing on the cake is its party trick of being able to shred leaves into a 45 litre bag. Yup, no more raking up, which is a mighty good thing.

AO has got lots more fab deals too on a wide variety of electrical appliances too. Check 'em out!
