Trusted Reviews Awards 2022: Homes winners
It’s that time of year again, as Trusted Reviews has announced all of the winners for its 2022 awards event.
We’ve reviewed countless home products over the last 12 months, ranging from home appliances to smart doorbells. And so we’ve decided to celebrate the very best products of the year by selecting winners from each category.
So without further ado, here are the Trusted Reviews 2022 winners from the Homes section.
Best washing machine/dryer winner
The AEG L9FEB969C offered something different to its competition. Thanks to its built-in water softener (running on dishwasher salt), this machine can take better care of your clothes and reduce the amount of detergent you need in a hard water area. Throw in its excellent cleaning results, low running costs and smart features, and this was the stand-out washing machine of the year.

Best vacuum winner
In a world of very similar cordless vacuum cleaners, the Samsung Bespoke Jet stood out for all of the right reasons. For starters, it’s not just a powerful vacuum cleaner; it’s also an accomplished hard floor cleaner with the clip-on floor mop. And, for those with allergies, the dust-free emptying into the docking station is excellent. With excellent results in our tests, this was the most impressive vacuum cleaner of the year.

Best smart home product winner
Far more flexible than other smart lighting systems, the Nanoleaf Lines look almost as good turned off as they do on.

Overall, the flexibility and quality here make these our favourite smart home device of the year.

Best smart doorbell winner
Most video doorbells work along the same lines, but the Eufy Video Doorbell Dual has an extra camera pointing down. Using AI, the doorbell can monitor packages, telling you when they were delivered and if someone’s trying to steal one. A great price and subscription-free use sealed its place as winner.

Best upright vacuum winner
Vax ONEPWR Edge Dual Pet & Car
The Vax ONEPWR Edge Dual Pet & Car is an excellent cordless vacuum cleaner, with its dual batteries providing enough cleaning power to tackle an entire home. It did brilliantly in our tests, and its batteries will even work in other ONEPWR devices, which is great if you own more than one. This combination of features makes it our top upright vacuum cleaner of the year.

Best handheld vacuum winner
Shark Premium Handheld Vacuum WV270UK
Handheld vacuums are great for convenience, but why should we sacrifice power for this? With the Shark WV270UK, there’s no need to. This cleaner packs all the power of a full-size vacuum into a tiny body. Excellent cleaning results and long battery life make it the ultimate handheld cleaner.
Best oven winner
The Hotpoint SI9 S8C1 SH IX H isn’t just an excellent oven that maintains stable temperatures and can grill evenly. With its steam compartment, it also adds versatility, such as for bread making. Available for a great price, this is a top oven for any budding chef and winner of our best oven.

Best hob winner
There are faster hobs available, but the Indesit IB 88B60 NE offers something arguably more important: flexibility. Its two DualZone burners let you use larger pans as well as regular ones. Every burner can be used as its maximum setting at the same time. With its clever auto cooking programmes, this great all-rounder is our best hob.

Best dishwasher winner
This integrated dishwasher is the best that we’ve tested. It has a huge amount of flexible internal space, including a huge cutlery tray. Where this machine really wins is with its smart auto dosing, excellent cleaning results and low running costs.
