Getting a great night’s sleep is a high priority for users of which.co.uk, with two mattresses proving to be the most popular home and garden products on the site in April 2016.
The Silentnight Classic 1200 Pocket Deluxe mattress heads our top 10 list with the Sealy Teramo 1400 mattress in the silver medal position. And with spring here and summer coming, barbecues, lawn mowers and pressure washers were also high in the popularity charts for April.
Read on to see what has made it into the top 10 product reviews and click on the links to see which products are worth buying, and which you'd be better to avoid.
1. Silentnight classic 1200 pocket deluxe mattress
This is a reasonably priced (£349) pocket-sprung mattress and in April it was viewed more than any other home and garden product on the which.co.uk site. But do you get what you pay for with this affordable mattress? Or is it a far better in terms of support and durability than you'd expect from the price tag?

2. Sealy Teramo 1400
The Sealy Teramo 1400 - also known as the Nostromo 1400 - is a pocket-sprung mattress from Sealy. You can buy one for £749 but what kind of night’s sleep will it give you?

3. Bosch Rotak 430 Ergo power lawn mower
With spring here and the grass growing, our minds turn to lawn mowing. And this Bosch mower (£178) was viewed more times than any other on the which.co.uk site in April – it’s corded, rotary, has a 43 cm cutting width and six cutting heights.

4. Samsung WW80J6410CW washing machine
This feature-packed Samsung washing machine has room inside for 8kg of washing – that’s the equivalent of 25 men’s shirts. Most households should find it big enough to deal with their weekly washing. But is it any good at washing clothes? And does it justify the £500 price-tag?

5. Vax S86-SF-B Boost steam mop
The Vax S86-SF-B Boost steam mop is designed to ‘cut through grease’ and comes with a built-in scrubbing-brush, a steam-burst nozzle and a dial to adjust the steam pressure. But do these features mean it’s any good at cleaning?

6. Zanussi ZWF91283W freestanding washing machine
The Zanussi ZWF91283W washing machine has a large enough drum to handle massive amounts of laundry but comes with a refreshingly low (£289) price tag. But just how good is it at washing clothes?
7. Char-Broil Performance T-22G gas barbecue
This gas barbecue uses its ‘Tru-Infrared cooking system’ and claims to give you juicier barbecued food and more control of your cooking. We tested these claims at the Which? test lab - read our full review of the Char-Broil Performance T-22G gas barbecue to find out whether the £300 price is worth paying.
8. Siemens SN678D00TG/06 dishwasher
The Siemens SN678D00TG/06 (£789) comes with an array of snazzy features, including Zeolith drying technology. This uses heat-absorbing minerals to capture heat from the water and release it during drying to cut energy costs.
But to find out whether it’s any good at washing dishes, read our full Siemens SN678D00TG/06 dishwasher review.
9. Miele WDA101 freestanding washing machine
The Miele WDA101 freestanding washing machine (£502) lives at the premium end of the price range and you get 15 wash programs and an A+++ energy-efficiency label for your money.
But is the extra expense worth it in terms of its clothes-washing, rinsing and spinning?

10. Lidl Parkside PHD 150 D3 pressure washer
The Lidl Parkside PHD 150 D3 is a surprisingly high-spec pressure washer for the £80 price-tag. But is it as powerful as it claims to be and does it clean quickly and easily?
