Amazon Prime Day Editor's picks

Heather Young

Heather Young has loved interiors since asking for a bedroom makeover for her 11th birthday present! Heather's been working on interiors magazines for over 20 years - she's seen inside many of the UK's most gorgeous homes and has written endless features on style and colour. Heather's on her fifth home renovation - she started with a one-bed flat in Peckham and her current project is a four-bed Victorian porter's lodge which she moved into with her husband and tween twins in November 2020.

The Amazon Prime Early Access Sale is an extra Amazon Prime Day following the one back in July this year. It's easy to get overwhelmed and feel compelled to buy things you don't really need, so here's what we'd recommend to a friend, starting with Ideal Home Editor, Heather Young's top pick.

Editor's Choice

Morphy Richards Total Control Soup Maker 501020 White Soupmaker: was £129.99 now £99.99 at Amazon
This soup maker was a game-changer for me last autumn,' says Ideal Home  Editor Heather Young. 'I love how it’s helped me switch up my boring lunch options (I was definitely stuck in a rut), and there’s nothing better than a steaming bowl of soup on a cold day to warm you up! It’s super easy to use, with 9 functions, including Smooth, medium and chunky soup settings, Saute, Drinks, Reheat, Blend and Pre Clean.'

Nespresso Creatista Plus Coffee Machine by Sage: was £479.95 now £279.99 at Amazon
If you're in the market for a coffee machine, I can't recommend the Sage Creatista Plus enough,' says Ideal Home Deputy Editor (print) Ginevra Benedetti. 'I love mine and it has fuelled my mornings for the past four years. It currently has a whopping 42% off the RRP on Amazon. 

'Unlike a lot of coffee machines these days, it's made from stainless steel so it's dead sturdy. It heats up in a mere three seconds and features a milk frother on the side so you can whip up macchiatos, cappuccinos and lattes on demand. Like all Sage products, the Creatista Plus looks super smart so you'd be happy to have it out on your countertop, and it's not too huge either so it's basically a win-win!'

'With all of us concerned about our energy bills this year, I'm recommending the Silentnight Comfort Control electric blanket to all of my friends,' says Decor Editor Amy Lockwood. 'Whilst it might not have the bells and whistles of some of the best electric blankets money can buy, it is one of the most affordable out there and the most economical to run, costing under 3 pence an hour at maximum temperature.'

'There's 13% off of this air fryer which we loved when we reviewed it,' says Ideal Home Ecommerce Writer Molly Cleary. 'It has a huge 11-litre capacity and a multi-shelf design for different meal components. During our tests, it was a game changer thanks to the rotisserie function, which allowed us to air fry a whole roast chicken.' Browse Amazon air fryer deals on our roundup.

Tower Cerastone 5 Piece Pan Set with Non-Stick Coating was £94.99 now £53.49 at Amazon
'I've just snapped up this set of non-stick saucepans, at nearly half price,' says Ideal Home Content Editor Holly Walsh. 'I’m chuffed to be getting 5 pieces at such a great price. My old ones had seen better days, plus I made the mistake of running them through the dishwasher. It turns out that cleaning them that way reduces their non-stick coating over time, so this new set will be hand-washed only going forward!'

'I'm going down the practical and boring route this Amazon Prime Day, and picking up some Miele vacuum cleaner bags while they're 15% off,' says Ideal Home Senior Content Editor Millie Hurst. 'Vacuum cleaner bags are the kind of adult purchase you put off repeatedly, but know you'll need eventually. I'll be glad I stocked up while there was a discount.'
