Expert review

The V4D01P is an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny... compact tumble dryer from Hotpoint. Smaller in every dimension compared with most dryers, it's a model for those who are short on space but still want to dry clothes indoors. Will the 4kg of clothes (12 shirts) you can get into the drum come out dry? Read our review of this Hotpoint tumble dryer to find out.
