Feedback for The Hotpoint Ultima S-Line
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
