Kenwood Blend X blender
This is the best price we have seen the Kenwood Blend X blender for. It's got 1.5 litres of space to put your food and juice in, and uses a pretty powerful 800W motor to move things around. There are only 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon for it, so it looks like a great buy.

Kasa Mini Smart Plug by TP-Link
£14.99
Did I leave the iron on? I’m sure I didn’t. But what if I did? Will the house burn down? Nah, it probably won’t. But what if it does? If only I had it connected to a Kasa Mini Smart Plug by TP-Link, then I’d just be able to switch it off using my phone and I wouldn’t have to fear coming home to find all belongings have gone up in smoke. I should have bought one when they were under £15 in the Summer Sale. Ah well… plenty more houses in the sea, and all that.
