Disadvantages: See review
I have had this dryer for about 4 years now and my mum had it for about 6 years prior to that.
My mum bought it for the sole purpose of drying my new £200 puffa coat!!! And seeing as I rarely wore it much it didn't get much use..... ooops!
Well it was kept in the understairs cupboard in my mums house for years without getting used so I decided to be cheeky and ask for it before buying one myself!
It's a small compact tumble dryer and it is very compact at just 68cm high and 50cm in width, but it does the job fine. It can only hold small loads too, just 2.99kg, but it works just fine.
There's a switch on the right hand side with allows you to choose either a high or low heat setting and the time dial is on the left hand side. The maximum drying time is 120 mins but as I don't overload the machine, I usually only put around 10 or so items in at a time and they will dry in around 20 mins to half hour.
Because of it's size it's an easy machine to hide away, mine is in the back porch and that has turned into a sort of mini laundry room, which I quite like as it means everything is hidden away!
I am not really sure of the price but I think it was around the £100 mark and I haven't been able to find a price as they seem to not be selling them anymore, but if you were thinking of buying a second hand one I am sure you could pick one up pretty cheaply.
The only bad thing about this dryer is that the rubber seal around the door seemed to stretch and fall off and the door catch has broken so it pop's open in the middle of a cycle.... But I think the door catch is more to do with some little people in my house rather than a fault with the machine. I am sure you could buy a new rubber seal quite cheaply, but mine does fine without it.
It also has a reset button on the back of the machine which sometimes needs to be pressed as the machine starts blowing cold air sometimes but as soon as it is reset it all works fine again.
On the front panel there's also a guide which gives you drying times for different loads.
Summary: A great compact dryer that works great.
