Advantages: Size and condenser
Disadvantages: Can't put huge amounts in
Our landlord recently bought this dryer for our apartment, purely because of its size.
We needed a condenser dryer as we did not have the facility to plum in the dryer, or release the steam anywhere.
This dryer is the smallest we could find on the market, and literally only just squeezed into the cupboard we needed it to fit in! The dimensions are 68.6 x 59.5 x 42.0 (H/W/D) cm.
I had never used a condenser dryer, and after months of trying to dry clothes in a washer/dryer that did not work AT ALL, I was dubious to say the least. However, I was pleasantly suprised!
As we live in an apartment, we do not have any outside space, we can easily dry our clothes on an airer but needed the dryer for washing batches of towels and our bedding.
The drum is not massive, but easily fits in a kingsize duvet cover, bed sheets and pillow cases, or 5-6 towels.
When I have washed things on a cotton wash, I tend to put a load in the dryer on the hot cotton setting for 80 - 90 minutes. So long as nothing is screwed up in a ball, this seems to be a sufficient time to thoroughly dry the load.
There is also a cold setting, but I don't find this really does much to dry anything, so I tend to only use the hot setting and am just careful what I put in there.
After each load of drying, you need to empty the water tank. It is quite astonishing how much water is taken out from each load!! But the tank comes out easily, is easily emptied and easily replaced. Also, as with all dryers, you need to clean the fluff filter. Again, this is very easy.
This dryer has made our life a lot easier, and I would definitely recommend it for people such as us who lack space and somewhere for a traditional dryer.
Summary: Brilliant for small homes that need a condenser dryer
