    Hi zippy, we have the Hotpoint FFU3DK which is practically the same apart from the freezer design and is quoted as being the same size ie 700mm. I have just got DH to measure it and it is 702mm, definitely not under 700mm sorry Of course it is possible that the FFU4DK could be different, hth.
    DH is now curious as to why I needed to know the exact measurement. I think I will keep him in suspense

    A now 1 each.

    EDIT: And I've called it "shower gel" when I should have called it body wash. (...How could I be so inaccurate?!?) That was just from the top of my memory (faulty on this occasion) - I, and you, knew what I meant!

Did you see me spending 20 mins at the checkout arranging my purchases into 5 baskets and typing in 4 other large but sub 20 apgs?

    Thank you for posting that - I have a few shops meticulously planned for tomorrow and one of them is an Aussie shop and had the dove hand wash on it. I have now removed it!
    Originally posted by Dizzy Ditzy
    Aussie shouldn't have gone with Dove handwash anyway, as individual prices of 4 (or 4.50) and 1.50 mean the Dove handwash gives a deduction of just 1.50 off the cost of the trio (two Aussies and one Dove) and therefore, in that sense, costs 2.50 or 3 (of course it depends on competitor prices too - we're advised not to shop for different A-priced items in the same shop for this reason. Technically however it could be broken if the individual A prices are, say, higher ones like some of the gift set items and if a third item is something like, for example, just 50p less in a situation where the competitor price on the slightly lower-priced A item is a somewhat better offer than the offer they have on the more expensive individual price A items. However, if it's lower-value items like handwashes then I wouldn't go for an item at a 50p individual price less, as it's a significant percentage loss. I saw someone's shop where they mixed up different prices on some gift sets - however I thought it was quite good as they bought two of the higher priced A item and only bought one of the "cheaper" A item and still got a comparison where the difference on the cheaper A item was possibly as much as that on the higher priced items due to T's lower offer price on the lower priced A item).

    The Dove original handwash does still work (vs M), back to its original comp. rather than the glitched one, just that it seems we are now confined to that and can't buy any Lynx anymore (that were same price). It should not be mixed with Aussies. The Dove Silk handwash also works, again back to a previous comparison and I have separately mentioned it as I can't bring myself to say "rather than the glitched one" in respect of it, since I think this item may be a glitch all along in that it may be that M does not have it and it has "always" been picking up the original version and comparing on it from Silk as well. In that sense, the current 1 individual M price on the silk on the APG (who knows if there is an mbuy there behind it?, but I suspect not if it is precisely following the Dove original) may also be a glitch as strictly maybe it should not compare at all. If it is a glitch by comparing when it should not (unless M really have Dove silk but I have just never found it) then, if it is now not 2 at total 1.80, it is a less favourable glitch than the two separate glitches on the same item of before that had the second glitch of picking up an incorrect price (if indeed it ever worked on this silk product). In the technical sense in which I see the world, therefore it would not be "back to an original price comparison rather than a glitched one" - it still is a glitched one, albeit a less favourable glitch (if indeed picking up a price for M is one, which in my view it would be if it is the case that M doesn't have this product).

    Technical accuracy, that complicates things for most people, rather than the straightforward broad picture.
