Tumble dryers: Don't Buys Don't buy

Tumble dryer

Tumble dryers are meant to be two things; quick and energy efficient.

But we’ve seen tumble dryers with drying times that stretch all the way up to eight hours - the same sort of time needed for a trans-Atlantic flight.

What’s worse, if your tumble dryer turns out to be a bit of an energy guzzler, it could add over £130 to your annual energy bills.

But when you’re looking at tumble dryers in the shops, you won’t have any idea as to how quickly they’ll do your laundry and what sort of burden they might add to your energy costs.

So before you snap up that bargain – make sure you’re getting your money’s worth by avoiding any tumble dryer that has performed poorly enough to become a Don’t Buy.
