10 of my favourite gadgets in the Amazon Prime Sale!

Jun 21, 2021

It’s Amazon Prime Day today & tomorrow ( 21st June 2021 and 22nd June 2021 ) so I thought I’d have a look through and see if there was anything on offer that would be useful for B&Bs. Everything I’ve found is either a favourite of mine or recommended by people in our Facebook Group.

Note that you need to be an Amazon Prime Member to get these offers.

If you aren't already a member of Amazon Prime,they're offering a 99p one week trial

Shark Corded Upright Vacuum Cleaner

These vacuum cleaners are a favourite with many of the B&B owners on our group. This one comes with an Anti-Hair Wrap, Pet Brush and a Car Detail Kit and it reduced from £379.99 to £183.99

 Shark Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

Whilst I would always have a corded vacuum cleaner for my main room changeover clean, I find a cordless vacuum cleaner to be really useful for room tidies and quick cleans. So I have both a corded and a cordless. This one from Shark feature their Anti Hair Wrap and is suitable for pet hair. Reduced from £399.99 to £199.99

 Ring DoorBell

The Ring video doorbell means you can see who's at the door and talk with them. Useful if guests arrive early if you're out! This one is reduced from £188.00 to £109 over the 2 Prime Days. You do need reliable WiFi for these though apparently!



Deciding what technology to put into your guest rooms so guests can listen to music can be complicated! I remember when iPhones came out and I put iPod docks in, only for the change to the iPhone meaning they were all defunct! One solution is to use an Amazon Echo Dot. This one is reduced from £49.99 to £24.99


 Ninja Foodi Air Fryer

I've recently bought a Ninja Foodi 9 in 1 and have fallen a bit in love with it. I've been meaning to write a blog about how you can cook a full English in it!

The air fryer cooks sausages and bacon quickly and keeps the fat, and resulting smoke enclosed. It also uses less fat than traditional frying methods.

The Dual Zone Air Fryer is on offer today reduced from £179.99 to £129.99

Their juicer, grill, mini oven and food processor are all also in the Amazon Prime deals.


Soda Stream

If you want to help the environment and supply guests with sparkling water and are looking to reduce plastic, the Soda Stream Spirit  is reduced by 50% to £49.99


 Karcher Window Vac

The Karcher window vac is popular with a few B&B owners I know for cleaning shower screens as well as windows. It's reduced from £79.99 to £45.99


Salter Weight Scale

These are my favourite scales for baking. Reduced from £19.99 to 11.99


Panasonic Breadmaker with Gluten Free Programme and Nut Dispenser

I love my Panasonic breadmaker. It's one of those kitchen appliances that is used daily. Guests really appreciate homemade freshly baked bread in the morning. This all singing and dancing version is reduced from £179.99 to £138.99


This is the cheaper version and is the one I have> It's reduced from £149.99 to £99.99

 Tefal Steam Generator

There's alway a healthy discussion on our Facebook Group when the subject of ironing bed linen is brought up. I prefer to send my laundry out to be washed and ironed. Others swear by the Miele rotary iron and some people love the steam generator irons.

If you are after a steam generator iron, then Tefal gets the thumbs up from our members. There are lots of Tefal steam generator irons available. This one is reduced from £399.99 to £129.99
