At the expense of lower energy efficiency than previous models, this model has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which will allow you to control it remotely.

How to choose the dryer

Now that we know which are the best dryers on the market, it's time to know the factors that determine whether a specific dryer is right for you or not, as well as the features and functionality it must have to ensure that you can achieve perfect drying, regardless of the type of fabric or amount of clothing you need to dry.

Drum Capacity

The first specification to consider when buying a tumble dryer is the capacity of the drum. If you live alone or live with your partner, in fact, buying a dryer with a 10kg drum means going against an unnecessary expense, since, obviously, models that boast a large drum tend to cost more. Similarly, if you need to dry numerous clothes, it would be inappropriate to evaluate a model with a very low drum capacity. That said, below we have reported the recommended load capacity depending on the family unit:

1-2 people -> 5 / 6kg 3-4 people -> 7 / 8kg 5 or more people -> 9 / 10kg


Unless you are willing to go against high energy consumption, the efficiency and, consequently, the consumption of the dryer are very important, and that's why our advice is that to consider a Class A certified model. Obviously, the latter cost more, but the initial investment will be recovered in the medium / long term, given that the difference in consumption, in terms of kWh, between a Class A model and a Class D model could prove to be important in the 'span of a year. In this regard, we have compiled a series of data below that could help you understand what the impact of a dryer weighing only 6kg will be based on the energy label. Before analyzing the data, it is necessary to know that the calculations are carried out according to parameters established by the EU, taking into account 160 standard drying cycles, both at full and half load. As it is easy to guess, this means that consumption will not be the same for everyone, since a lot depends on the way in which the appliance is used. In any case, the values ​​below should correspond to a fairly normal use of the dryer, giving you a fairly accurate idea of ​​the electricity cost.

A +++ -> Less than 141 kWh / year A ++ -> Among 141 and 187 kWh / year A + -> Between 188 and 264 kWh / year A -> Between 247 and 381 kWh / year B -> Between 382 and 445 kWh / year C -> Between 446 and 498 kWh / year D -> Over 499 kWh / year If you want to have an even more precise measurement of the electricity consumption of a dryer, we have compiled additional data, but this time taking into account the consumption for each cycle, always calculated on the basis of the efficiency class. Obviously, also in this case you have to take into account that the final consumption will depend very much on your contract stipulated with the electricity supply company. We have based ourselves on a cost equal to 20 euro cents for each kWh and the results are as follows:

A +++ -> Less than 1.5 kWh A ++ -> 1.5 kWh A -> 2 kWh B -> 3 kWh C -> 4 kWh D -> From 5 kWh

Programs and performances

Almost all dryers have the most important programs, but if you have to dry specific and delicate fabrics, it would be advisable to take consider the model that integrates the largest number of programs, which in high-end models can be even more than 14. Furthermore, it is important to know what the performance of the dryer is, an aspect that is difficult to understand until you try it. Fortunately, the energy label could answer many of your questions, as it displays information on the noise and duration of the drying cycle, as well as the energy rating.

Occasionally, modern dryers are equipped with smart functions, accessible via mobile devices, which you can use as a control panel to start and stop drying cycles, plan times, adjust various settings and even receive alerts if there are maintenance problems, for example when it is internal mechanical parts need to be cleaned or to solve more serious problems more easily.

In terms of features, many dryers have heat and humidity sensors to indicate when the drying cycle has run its course. These sensors can save you on the cost of energy, since the appliance will finish the cycle as soon as the laundry is completely dry and not when the timer expires. In addition to saving money on your bill, this feature will also ruin your clothes less, extending their life. In addition, the temperature and humidity sensors can also prevent drying. In fact, no one likes to hear the tumble dry's end-of-cycle sound only to find that their clothes are still wet.

Some dryers also include features to help keep clothes wrinkle-free, such as steam mode or a function that will turn off the heating phase of the dryer while the drum continues to rotate, preventing, as mentioned, clothes from coming out with many wrinkles and creases after washing.

Smart functions

How you know, smart features have also arrived on dryers. However, we believe that these do not necessarily have to be present, unless you want to control the dryer remotely. For the same price, in fact, a model equipped with smart functionality tends to offer a lower drying quality than a traditional model, whose development costs are concentrated more on the most important components of the dryer. The situation is different, however, if the dryer is equipped with artificial intelligence, which will allow it to independently choose the most suitable mode based on the type of load and optimize efficiency, as well as giving you tips on maintenance.
