A Simple but Brilliant machine
Member Name: CharlieBrownDog
Advantages: Quick and Easy to use
Disadvantages: Fluff requires attention every use
This tumble dryer might not be the most attractive tumble dryer you can buy, but it is simple to use and dries clothes quickly and fairly quietly. After my last machine having electrical problems with it's electrical display and buttons, I like how simple and manual the controls on this machine are. It has a low/high heat setting and a dial for you to select how long you would like your clothes to be dried for. I've found that this dryer can do an 8kg load of normal clothes (i.e., not towels) in an hour or less. The last 10-20 minutes of the cycle is at a reduced temperature, meaning that by the time it has finished the clothes are dry and cool to touch. This also means that you can leave your clothes in the dryer for as long as you need to without them becoming damp again.
One major advantage to this machine is that the condenser drawer that you must empty every 2-3 cycles is at the top of the machine - no bending down to the floor and lifting 5kg of water! The drawer slides out easily, tip it back slightly, and you can carry it easily to wherever you plan on emptying the water.
The only drawback to this machine that I've found is that the lint/fluff collector gets full every single time I use the dryer. It has to be emptied every time I use it, and the fluff seems to not be completely caught by the trap. It's not a major problem, but something that wasn't part of my regular usage of my last machine.
I'd recommend this dryer to anyone.
Summary: A fantastic and simple machine
