Hoover's home appliance highlights for all your cleaning, cooking, washing, drying and chilling needs

Hoover first introduced the world to the delights of dust busting back in 1908 when it started producing 'electric suction sweepers' from a factory in Ohio. And while the brand is still synonymous with vacuum cleaners, it offers much more than the pioneering product it's best known for.

In addition to an impressive selection of floor cleaners, Hoover has a range of appliances designed to take the strain out of household chores, from washing machines and tumble dryers to built-in ovens and washer-dryers.

And despite its history and heritage, the brand is still an industry innovator. Hoover created the world's first fully WiFi-enabled range of kitchen appliances in 2015, which means that when you download the appropriately-named Hoover Wizard app to your smartphone, you can whizz through all manner of tiresome tasks from wherever you are: Start a load of washing while walking the dog, clean the dishes from your car and preheat the oven on your way home from work.

We've given the Hoover range a full sweep to highlight our pick of the best products that you can currently buy.

Hoover's best vacuum cleaners

Hoover Freedom FD22G cordless vacuum cleaner

Price: £99.99 | Buy now from Currys PC World 


At 2.1kg, the Freedom FD22G is one of Hoover's lightest vacuums and with its trigger grip mechanism and detachable head, it's a breeze to use one-handed, proving particularly adept at cleaning curtains, corners and car seats. There's a continuous-use switch so you don't have to keep your finger on the button as you clean, and it has a runtime of 25 minutes. This affordable appliance is fitted with a powerful 22V motor and comes with a range of handy extras including a crevice tool for hard-to-reach areas and an upholstery tool to keep your sofa dust-free.

Price: £199.99  | Buy now from Currys PC World


With a 50-minute runtime (one of the longest in the market), you can give your home a thorough once-, twice-, or thrice-over with this upright cordless vacuum cleaner. It has an adjustable brush bar for tackling different surfaces, from smooth wooden floors to thick carpets, and the floor nozzle is fitted with LED lights so you can illuminate the darkest of nooks and crannies. The reclining handle lets you slide easily under tables, chairs, sofas and beds, and when it comes to emptying the filter, you can get rid of dust and debris without having to get your hands dirty using a simple one-press mechanism.

Key specs – Dimensions (WDH): 31 x 29 x 117cm; Weight: 3.1kg; Bin capacity: 0.7l; Vacuum Type: Cordless upright; Bagless: Yes; Vacuum power: 21.6V; Run time: 50 minutes

Hoover Discovery DS22G cordless vacuum cleaner

Price: £159.99 | Buy now from Currys PC World


Hoover's Discovery range combines loads of innovative features and the DS22G model is a standout product when it comes to all-round performance. Its rotating brush bar is designed to agitate carpet fibres to loosen dirt and debris for a thorough clean, while the snazzy Turbo Boost feature provides an extra blast of power to shift stubborn soot. It's fitted with HSpin-Core technology – a component that pushes dust right to the bottom of the container so you can empty it without getting your hands dirty – and it comes with a wall mount for neat storage when not in use. It's a bit pricier than the Freedom FD22G but you get a longer run time at 35 minutes and a larger bin capacity of 0.7 litres.

Key specs – Dimensions (WDH): 27 x 23 x 111cm; Weight: 2.6kg; Bin capacity: 0.7 litres; Vacuum Type: Cordless handheld; Bagless: Yes; Vacuum power: 22V; Run time: 35 minutes

Hoover's best washing machines, tumble dryers, fridge freezers and ovens

Hoover Dynamic Next DXC10DE Smart 10kg condenser tumble dryer

Price: £299.99 | Buy now from Currys PC World 


The best thing about buying a condenser rather than a vented dryer is that you can install it wherever there's a nearby power socket; great if you're short on space or don't want the hassle of adding an outside air vent. On the downside you need to remove condensed moisture vapour on a regular basis. This dryer makes it into our roundup thanks to its handy AquaVision feature, a reservoir that's built into the door to make it easy to see when water needs emptying and a bag-style handle for fuss-free disposal. You can select from four levels of dryness including iron dry and extra dry, and by downloading the Hoover Wizard app you can kickstart things on the go via an Android smartphone.

Key specs – Type: Condenser; Capacity: 10kg; Rated efficiency: B

Hoover Dynamic Next DXOC 69AFN NFC 9kg 1600 spin washing machine

Price: £369.99 | Buy now from Currys PC World


We’re big fans of this machine’s “all in one wash” function, which allows you to bung bright colours and whites in together without the risk of damaging your clothes. And as an added time-saving bonus, it can blitz through a full 9kg wash in 59 minutes at 20°C and whizz through a small 1.5kg load in just 14 minutes. As well as being efficient in the time stakes, it's environmentally savvy too, with an A+++ rating and a KG Mode feature that weighs your laundry in the first few minutes of a cycle to adjust the time, water and electricity to best suit the load.

Key specs - Drum size: 9kg; Spin speed: 1,600rpm; Rated efficiency: A+++; Wool wash: Yes; Silk Wash: Yes; Dimensions (WDH): 60 x 52 x 85cm

Hoover HMNB 6182X5WDK 50/50 fridge freezer

Price: £399.99 | Buy now from Currys PC World


While most fridge-freezer combos are split 60/40 with much more space given over to the fridge area, this nifty model offers an equal (or thereabouts) 50/50 split. If frozen food is as important as fresh to you and your family, then this is a good buy. The “no frost” function evenly distributes cold air to maintain a constant temperature, which ultimately saves you the annoying job of defrosting, and the built-in water dispenser is handy for on-demand chilled drinks. Oh, and there's a wine rack to keep your whites cool.

Key specs – Type: Freestanding; Rated efficiency: A+; Gross fridge capacity: 197 litres; Gross freezer capacity: 111 litres; Frost-free: Yes; Ice dispenser: No; Water dispenser: Yes; Dimensions (WDH): 59.5 x 64.2 x 185.5cm

Hoover HSO8650X electric built-in oven in stainless steel

Price: £229.99 | Buy now from Currys PC World


For a neat and unobtrusive finish to your kitchen, you can't beat a built-in appliance, and this keenly priced single oven is just the ticket. It has a family-friendly 65-litre capacity and a range of settings including a pizza mode. Our favourite feature is the Hydro Clean function, which makes it easy to keep things grime-free. You simply pour water into the recess at the bottom of the oven and flick a switch to kickstart a steam clean.

Key specs – Style: Built-in unit; Dimensions (WDH): 59.5 x 56.7 x 59.5cm; Capacity: 65 litres; Fan assisted: Yes; Grill: Yes; Timer: Yes; Hob: No; Energy rating: A

Hoover HBWD 8514TAHC integrated 8+5kg washer dryer

Price: £449.99 | Buy now from Currys PC World


A top pick for small kitchens, this compact unit combines an 8kg washer and a 5kg dryer in one space-saving appliance. It can get through a quick wash in 14 minutes flat and clean a full 8kg load in 59 minutes. The jumbo porthole door is great for easy loading and like the Dynamic Next DXOC 69AFN NFC model above, it features an all-in-one wash programme so you can mix brights and whites without worrying about the colours running.

Key specs – Style: Built-in unit; Dimensions (WDH): 59.6 x 55.1 x 82cm; Capacity: Wash: 8kg, Dry: 5kg; Dryer type: Condenser; Rated efficiency: A
