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.
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.
