How we test tumble dryers

Tumble dryers are expensive, so make sure you invest in a model that will be effective at drying your clothes, easy to use and - to save you money on running costs - energy efficient.

In our tests, we look at drying speed, evenness of drying, ease of use, noise and running costs, using four loads of washing in each machine on two different settings. 

A bad tumble dryer takes around 30 minutes to dry 1kg of washing, that's typically around two and a half hours for a full load. But many Best Buys take twenty minutes or less per kg - that's just over an hour and a half for a full load.

Energy efficient tumble dryers

Saving time on tumble drying also means saving money. We measure the energy usage of each machine in our tests. The best machines use about a third less energy than the worst - which means that if you use it every other day, you'll save around £75 a year.
