“ Brand: Candy „
I decided to review something a little different from my normal review. Last November I moved and there was already a washing machine which I now share with my housemates. I have been in the house for long enough to be able to review the washing machine fully. Candy like many other manufacturers make a wide range of Kitchen Appliances and are well known for Washing Machines. I believe this particular Washing Machine retails for around £240 and is relatively widely available in the major Kitchen Appliance stores.
This Candy CN146 is pretty well equipped with all the various different cycles you would need. This is a front loaded washing machine which holds quite a large load of 5.9kg. It has a spin speed of between 1000-1500rpm. Like most Washing Machines this particular one is really easy to use and gives you all the various settings clearly laid out. It also gives you the seperate compartments for powder, gel or of course you can put capsules into the actual machine if you wash that way. In action it's a very good Washing Machine. It does take longer than some to start the cycle but once it has started it works very well. I think that's just the way the Washing Machine is and is not a fault with the Machine I use.
This Washing Machine gives excellent results and works well even on quick spins and at low temperatures. Another good thing about this machine is that it keeps clean and leaves dirt to a minimum. It produces great results whether you are doing a full load or just a few things and it also works the same with a variety of different clothes. T shirts, jumpers, trousers, shorts, pants and socks are dealt with easily and you can put a couple of washes on in one day and there's no problem. It gives just as good results whatever cleaning method you use. ie gel, powder etc.

I would recommend this Washing Machine to anyone looking to purchase a new one. It has a wide variety of cycles and washes and the fact that it works so well in action is another excellent point about this Washing Machine. Although it can start a little loudly it does not sound as loud during it's cycle as some Washing Machines I have heard. It gets quite a lot of use and has worked really well and I'm sure it has a lot of life in it yet. A good Washing Machine which is reliable and easy to use and it's ideal for families and other households with three or more people. Finally this is a very solid Washing Machine from Candy.
