Choosing the best Hotpoint dishwasher

Hotpoint offers full-sized, slimline and integrated dishwashers. Its full-sized dishwashers have a capacity of up to 150 items. This is particularly generous for a full-sized dishwasher (the most items you can usually fit in are 140).

The useful features and specifications of Hotpoint dishwashers vary depending on the price of the machine and how recently it was launched. Some have a delayed-start function, which lets you set a cycle to start at a later time. This is handy if you like to put on your machine to run overnight. Some models also include useful extra programs, such as a quick wash or intensive wash.
