A vital part of the extraordinary lengths Which? goes to when testing products
Only Which? uses the bedding of Tomahawk the dog to test some washing machines*
*that’s actually what we do
We test thousands of products and services that people want to buy, from savings accounts to pushchairs and washing machines to digital cameras. Our information and advice puts you in control, so that you can make informed decisions about your purchases.
What else we do
You may be surprised by how far we go with our testing
This is what we actually do
You may be surprised by the lengths we go to with our testing. We care about what matters to you. So when we put products through their paces, we test how you would use them - to uncover how they really perform.
For example when we test pushchairs, we don’t just look at weight and dimensions. We send mums and dads round the park with them – on our specially designed obstacle course! That’s how we discovered that some pushchairs aren’t good for tall people.
