As a busy parent, there are things I hate spending my time doing and one of the biggest is laundry. There might only be me, John and Erin in the house but we get through at least one load a day normally. I don’t even know where it all comes from really. Our washing machine was one of the cheapest on the market as we bought it the week we moved into our house using vouchers we received as wedding presents. It was never anything special and it made one hell of a row. A lot of the time we had to close the kitchen door because we couldn’t hear each other speak over the sound. So, when Beko got in touch to see if we wanted to review one of their new machines with a 28 minute cycle, I near enough jumped around with excitement. I chose the Beko 9kg Freestanding Washing Machine.
We’re not the most technical family but plumbing in the washing machine was really easy and it only took John about 10 minutes. I was a bit like an excited child at Christmas, pacing around waiting for it to be done so I could have a bit of a play and get the first load going.
The washing machine we chose holds 9kg so it’s plenty big enough for our family. Our old washing machine wasn’t quite big enough for us at 7kg so the extra space is really a massive help. Not only can we put loads more clothes in on one wash but the machine has an amazing 28 minute cycle called ‘Daily Quick.’ Some clothes just don’t need really long washes so this cycle is absolutely perfect for that and also things like towels or bedding.
The Beko Freestanding 9kg Washing Machine has an A+++ energy rating and also has ProSmart™ Inverter Motor technology which means a quieter wash and also helps to save more money on energy bills. I really love how Beko have thought about energy usage on all levels and have come up with some really amazing machines that are powerful at the same time.
Earlier I mentioned our old machine that was incredibly loud. Well, I could not be more impressed with how quiet this model, is. On the day we got the washing machine I used it twice and I actually forgot it was on due to how quiet it is. I’m sure my neighbours are going to be pleased about there being less noise coming from our kitchen!
This washing machine has loads of different cycle options and they’re all clearly laid out and easy to choose from. So many washing machines come with a user manual which lists all of the cycles and their running times but that usually gets shoved in a drawer somewhere and forgotten about. With this machine, once you have chosen a cycle the LED display will tell you how long it lasts, the temperature of the cycle and also the spin speed. Nothing has been left out on this washing machine!
As you can probably tell, I am really impressed with our new washing machine. The machine I chose is perfect for the size of our family and suits our needs so well. Come back in a couple of weeks to see how we’re getting on with the Beko 9kg Freestanding Washing Machine and what I’ve been getting up to with the time I’ve saved!
The Beko 9kg Freestanding Washing Machine comes in white, black and silver and retails at £399.
Beko are giving one lucky reader the chance to win any machine of their choice with a 28 minute cycle!
(Ends 14/12 – UK only)
