There’s nothing better than dishing up a Sunday roast cooked to perfection for your friends and family…but the major cleanup that follows is always such a chore. Having a Hotpoint dishwasher lets you ditch the dishcloth and leave the scrubbing to your appliance, even after a big family meal.

Hotpoint’s Maxi Space appliances aren’t like most dishwashers. Available to buy at AO.com in two versions, built-in and freestanding, these innovative home appliances feature advances in loading technology and also offer a trade-up in energy efficiency. The Maxi Space tub has 10% more usable space – compared to Hotpoint dishwashers with a standard tub – so there’s more room for your dirty dishes, which means you won’t be left with a mountain of washing up because the dishwasher is already full.

The more the merrier

The Hotpoint H8IHP42LUK Fully Integrated Standard Dishwasher is a real show-stopper. This built-in unit offers a brand-new third rack, the first on the market, with integrated spray jets for 100% cleaning coverage. The new deeper third rack allows more room for mugs, bowls, glasses, and utensils, and the integrated spray jets ensure everything gets a thorough clean.

The Hotpoint H8IHP42LUK does more than make loading more flexible. It can remove even tough, baked-on food like lasagne, using the powerful 3D Zone Wash technology, an independent spray system at the bottom of the tub that offers up to 80% more water power (versus non-3D Zone Wash option), so all your crockery comes out spotless.

Thanks to its super quiet brushless motor and quick wash option, the Hotpoint H8IHP42LUK can turn your unwashed crockery into perfectly clean ones in no time. The ActiveDry function even means you can say goodbye to dishes that need towel drying before loading them into the cupboard. This function automatically opens the door near the end of the cycle, allowing fresh air to circulate, giving you better drying results and 40% energy savings compared to the Eco programme. 

Even if you don’t want to integrate your dishwasher into your kitchen cupboard, you don’t have to miss out on the extra internal space. Hotpoint’s freestanding Maxi Space dishwashers offer 10% more usable space within the same standard footprint as your average, run-of-the-mill dishwasher, as well as all the money saved on energy bills.

Go green with energy-efficient dishwashers

AO.com helps you make the right choice by showing you how much energy saving you can achieve over time when purchasing a new dishwasher (or any other appliance, for that matter) on the product page.

For example, the Hotpoint H8IHT59LSUK can save you £458 over 10 years if you use it five times a week and pay 30p per kWh for electricity, making it one of the most energy-efficient dishwashers at AO, according to calculations by Youreko. And that’s just savings on electricity! You can also save water by only running your dishwasher when it’s full, and with Hotpoint’s Maxi Space tub, there’s plenty of room for all your pots, pans and crockery.

Here are a few tips to ensure maximum efficiency. Load the crockery in the dishwasher before food dries on the plate, ideally right after the meal. Scrape off the bits from plates the best you can, but there’s no need to rinse them. Run the dishwasher at lower temperatures to save energy, most dishwashers have an eco cycle that often has a longer cycle time but uses less water and energy compared with higher-intensity washes. 

The only thing Hotpoint Maxi Space dishwashers can’t do is put away the plates and glasses, so for now, you’ll have to do that yourself. For anything else, you can count on Hotpoint dishwashers to get your crockery sparkling.
