Test yourself to win a new camera Try our product test quiz to win a Best Buy camera
30 December 2010
Think you know about Which? testing? Fancy one of our thoroughly tested digital cameras to capture all the happy moments you'll experience in 2011?
Test your knowledge of how we put thousands of products through their paces each year and you could be in with a chance of winning one of three Best Buy Canon Powershot G11s.
Hundreds of jolts
Our quiz has been launched to coincide with our new TV adverts, which show how far we go with testing to bring you Best Buys that you can rely on.
For instance, did you know that we jolt each camera we test hundreds of times in lab testing to check image stabilisation? But can you guess how many hundreds of times?Or, that we use really a filthy dog to test whether each washing machine we buy really can remove bad odours? But what is our helper's name?
Find out more in our quiz - and learn about how we test each product we review on our individual 'how we test' pages.
Size checked out
For example, those with a Best Buy oven may have avoided Christmas Day disasters we discovered recently in our research on fitting turkeys into ovens. We found that more than 11 million people in the UK have struggled to fit their turkey into the oven on Christmas Day.
At Which?, we carry out a range of tests on ovens, cookers and range cookers, including checking their size - and we'll tell you whether they're big enough for a turkey (with room to spare) in our oven reviews.
We also measure their real capacity (not always the same as the manufacturer's description) - the biggest ovens we’ve tested are 60% bigger than the smallest.
Which? testing uncovers the differences between products that you won’t be able to see in the shop – the best vacuum cleaners we've tested pick up twice as much dust as the worst, and are much quieter.
And the best coffee machines we’ve tested produce superior quality coffee, with great flavour at just the right temperature. The worst spew out coffee that can be weak, thin and uninspiring.

Which? testing? quiz
So whether you need a new oven after it let you down over Christmas dinner, or a camera that doesn't take blurred images every time, you can be sure that Which? tests products more rigorously than anyone else in the UK.
Try our testing quiz, and you could win one of our Canon Powershot G11 cameras, as seen in our new TV ad.
To enter the draw, you need to complete the test and then submit an entry form (which lists the full terms and conditions). The closing date is 28 February 2011.
