We got this tumble dryer because we were expecting our first child and decided we wanted a dryer with a high capacity - this one fit the bill at 7kg. I was already a fan of condenser dryers after previously living in a basement flat without an opening window in the kitchen, but this dryer had an extra appeal because the part that collects the water is at the TOP rather than the BOTTOM of the machine. This means you can empty the water without having to bend! There is also a "set and forget" feature, which means you simply select either hot or warm drying (depending on the type of fabric you're drying) and leave it running - the tumble dryer will continue to dry the clothes until its sensor detects that they are dry, then it'll stop. This is much more energy efficient than simply putting it on for x number of minutes, which could be far longer than it needs. It also has a "cool down" part to the cycle and various optional settings such as "post creasecare", where it will keep moving the clothes after they have finished drying until you take them out, so that they don't get wrinkles. Very handy!
