Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ113F497I
The Aqualtis AQ113F497I is one heck of a machine. It’s part of the premium range of Hotpoint’s washing machines and really lives up to this.
Firstly I have to mention the A+++ energy efficiency rating. This will keep Mother Nature on your side, and will keep a few more pennies in your pocket. I couldn’t go without mentioning the eco settings either. These will help you to save even more money on your energy bills.
It comes with wave-shaped filters in the drum, which softly massage your clothes to really look after them. This means you won’t end up with snags in your jumpers and bobbles on your blouses. It features an LCD display and the controls are really simple to use too, so you don’t have to be some kind of genius to work it.
You’ll also see that it has plenty of programmes to choose from, 16 in total. The anti-bacterial programme is great if you have children in the house, while the refresh cycle is great for clothes you just need to freshen up, rather than put through a full wash.
Another handy programme is the Eco wash which is long and slow, saving you even more money in the long run. The child lock is imperative if you have children, while the delay timer will help you make the most of cheaper electricity rates at night time. Like most machines this is cold fill only, making it much more efficient than hot and cold fill. It’ll only heat up the water it needs, rather than draining your entire boiler.
This machine is super silent too, so it won’t disrupt your TV watching if you enjoy open plan living. To take a look at the Aqualtis range in more detail, take a look at the Aqualtis hub.
