There’s something to be said about slim line models. They are very space efficient, yet still offer the quality of their fuller sized counterparts. The Hotpoint SDL510 is no exception. Available in a fresh white finish, it comes with 10 place settings, which is excellent for a slimmer appliance. And it has a 49dB noise level. So if you have open plan living, you can run it and watch TV at the same time without being disturbed.
There are programmes to cope with all your crockery needs. Apart from the standard wash cycle, there’s also a more intensive clean, which will come in handy for when you’ve kept the lasagne dish in the fridge. And if you’ve just got a few things like breakfast bowls and cups then you can use the Speed 25 option, which gives you a quick, easy clean in 25 minutes.
The delicates cycle is perfect for when you’ve had a dinner party and brought out your special china. It gives fragile items a gentle but thorough clean. And thanks to the foldable cup rack and removable cutlery basket, you’ll be able to fit in the more awkward, bulkier items from time to time.
Water usage is also much better compared to hand washing - only using 10 litres on a standard cycle, compared to 15 litres on average with hand washing. Combined with the A energy rating, you’ve got a very efficient, money saving machine on your hands.
