How we test tumble dryers

A tumble dryer is a big investment, especially if you want a larger capacity one with lots of features. So making sure you get an efficient tumble dryer that doesn't cost a lot to run is important.

We've tested 100 tumble dryers and only 20 are Best Buys. Ten are energy savers - meaning you'll save on your energy bills - and nine are Don't Buys.

  • 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 an hour less than this.
  • How much a tumble dryer costs you to run can range from £39 per year to £139.
