Feedback for The Hotpoint Ultima S-Line

I'm absolutely delighted to have been chosen to test the Hotpoint Ultima S-Line - it arrived and I was so excited, my washing machine was on it's last legs.
The drum is an outstanding size on the Hotpoint Ultima S-Line, it will do in one load, what normally takes me three loads in my old washing machine. And there's a great spin cycle too, which is so important.
There are so many different types of washes available, for different needs, including stain removal, quick washes and careful care options. And it's so very simple to work - a digital display shows the different washes as your turn the diall - even my husband can figure it out (he always used the excuse that he didn't know which programme to use).
I have it in my kitchen, and am used to a noisy washing machine, but I have to say the Hotpoint Ultima S-Line is so much quieter than any other washing machine I've had, which is fantastic.
The large door makes it really easy to put in big items such as bed clothes and covers. I can't remember the last time I washed the kids' quilt covers.
I'm absolutely thrilled with the Hotpoint Ultima S-Line, this is THE best washing machine out there as far as I'm concerned. And I've had lots of washing machines.
Previously I always just picked whatever was cheap, but honestly I never realised how important it was to have a good washing machine from a reliable brand like Hotpoint, and one that had a big drum and door. I would never go back to a smaller machine now, and I would recommend this to other mums, it just makes life simple.

Feedback for The Hotpoint Ultima S-Line

I was lucky enough to be chosen for the wasing machine trial. I have it almost 2 weeks and it is the best machine I have ever used. My old machine had an 8kg drum but this one has a 10 kg drum, I used to be doing washing every second day but now I find I am only doing my washing twice a week. There are lots of different programmes on it but my favourite one is the anti stain turbo as my 9 month old is starting to feed herself and her clothes are quite dirty but they come out spotless. I love the part where you put your powder as it doesn't pull out like a regular drawer. I also love the fact that you can lock the control panel so that no little fingers can change my wash cycle:-)
I never had a hotpont machine before but this is what I will be buying and recommending from now on.

I absolutely love the Hotpoint Ultima. My 8 month old daughter also gives her approval. It's a very attractive machine with a large door opening. My daughter was entralled by view she had when the machine was in progress.
I was a little worried that it would be complicated to use on first look with the digital screen and dial. I was delighted how self explanatory it was!
There is a huge selection of cycles to chose from and I found many of them to be really cleverly thought out.
I was delighted with the ultra delicate cycle - I was at a wedding recently and wore a heavily beaded dress. The cycle doesn't spin and the temperature is only 20c. Worked perfectly.
The Anti-Stain Turbo 45 was perfect for bibs and small items which, whilst pretty soiled, wouldn't really need to go through a full wash.
I was initially concerned as to whether I would be restricted to the programmed washes - some of the washes can be three and a half hours which won't always be required. There is a time saver option which can reduce the cycle time by up to 50%. You can also adjust the temperature on some cycles.
The other nifty features of this machine include the size - at 10kg it can take large loads, including duvets etc. The challenge will be having the space to dry it all. The machine also has a lock option on the digital display to prevent little hands changing setting etc.
I really like how user friendly this product is. I feel that parents were at the front of their mind when designing this machine and I think you would be hard pressed to not find a cycle to suit your needs!

Thank you for choosing me to trial the Hotpoint Ultima S-Line. Prior to this I had heard of the Hotpoint brand. The Hotpoint machines I used & use were the tumble dryer, washing machine & dishwasher. I had never heard of the Ultima S-Line prior to this trial. I was extremely impressed with this machine. It was really easy to use & has a fantastic range of washing cycles to suit all needs. The digital display is easy to use with time saver options to reduce washing times as well as reduced temperature options for selected cycles. I also was impressed that each washing cycle has a progress bar on the digital display which lets you know how much time is left in your washing cycle. Definitely an excellent feature to have. There is also a steam hygiene option which removes bacteria from the fibres. The energy efficient rating of this machine would definitely influence me in purchasing this machine. I loved everything about this machine. I was very impressed with the anti-stain programmes. Even at low temperatures stains were removed.I would highly recommend this machine to family & friends. It is the best machine I have ever used & is designed with mums & their families in mind.

First of all, I was delighted to be chosen to trial the Hotpoint Ultima Slim-Line washing machine as my old washing machine was on its last legs.
After it was installed I tried it out straight away. The drum is great, a big size and can hold a large amount of washing, more than our previous machine. The machine itself is very easy to use, I haven't had to even read the instructions that came with it. The screen and the buttons on the machine are very easy to read, and really self explanatory, you can't go wrong with it. There's also a little pull out inside the drawer for the fabric softner, which lists all the different settings on the machine, handy as a quick reminder. (My 4 year old found this feature while messing with the machine!).

I set the machine to a cotton wash and I could not get over how quiet the machine is! Myself and my husband actually stood there just looking at it spin, not actually believing it was on. It's so quiet, even the spin cycle doesn't make much noise. Our machine is in our kitchen and the sitting room is the next room, so it's amazing to be able to sit and enjoy the tv without hearing the noise of the spin cycle!
The choice of washes on the machine is amazing, even a setting for Duvets, baby and anti-allergy. They work amazingly. When you choose a setting, you then have various options if you want to change the settings on that wash, time changer, multi-rinse, colour care, temperature, spin, and also a delay start too, which is very handy.
One of the best features this machine also has is a key lock. It is a life saver with young children in the house. As soon as I set the machine to the wash I want, hold the key lock button in and it's locked. No matter how many buttons or knobs my child hits or turns the wash will still continue as I set to. It's really great.
I actually don't have anything negative to say about this washing machine. Energy efficient looks great, very quiet, plenty of choice for washes easy to use. I would highly recommend this mchine to anyone thinking of purchasing a new one. 10/10
