Beko washing machines are part of the manufacturer's Excellence range and start at £249.
Although 'A' is the most efficient officially recognised energy rating for a washing machine, Beko WME8227 (£289), WME7267 (£299) , WME7247 (£289) and WME7227 (£249) washing machines all feature Beko's "˜Daily Quick Programme.' This fast wash programme for full loads of lightly soiled laundry can be run at a range of temperatures and, according to Beko, save over an hour compared with a normal cotton wash. However it should be noted that, as yet, this feature remains untested and we do advise against fast washes, for more on that please see our articel about fast washes and why they may not be so good.
Other special programmes include 'Dark Care,' which Beko washing machine also has a duvet programme and capacity to fit a standard double duvet thanks to an extra large porthole door.
Beko says the collection is designed to match a variety of kitchen styles and layouts.
Beko claims the new interiors allow easier shelf adjustment and more shelf positions.
Additional features include larger viewing windows, interior lights and LCD timers with bigger displays.
The range includes a built-in multi-function oven with a 3D cooking function. This uses all heating elements including the upper heater, bottom heater and fan to provide more even heat and temperature distribution. Beko's new line up also includes a selection of gas, sealed plate and ceramic hobs starting at £99. The gas hobs offer a larger cooking surface, auto ignition, three different burner sizes and a wipe clean one piece surface.
There's also a choice of ceramic, manual or touch control hobs, each combining four rapidlite heating zones.
