Tumble dryer reviews you can trust
Which? goes further than anyone else to test tumble dryers - that's why we've tumble dried over 1,500kg of clothes in the last year just to separate the good dryers form the bad. We also know that tumble dryers can cost a lot to run - up to £131 a year, but the most energy efficient can be as low as £37.
So to reveal the true cost of your tumble dryer, we've calculated the annual running cost for every dryer we've tested. That way you know how much you're going to spend in total on your dryer - and not just the price tag in the shops.
