Choosing the best AEG tumble dryer
AEG makes a range of freestanding tumble dryers, including condenser, vented and heat-pump models. Drum capacities range from 6kg to 9kg. We test dryers at 70% of their maximum capacity to keep our tests realistic. A 6kg drum capacity is enough space to dry 17 cotton shirts at once - this is considered a small-capacity dryer. A 9kg capacity drum is one of the biggest sizes available, and has enough space to dry 25 shirts at once.
A lot of AEG tumble dryers use the brand's Silent System technology, intended to make drying as quiet as possible. Many models also feature ProTex Plus, a system that allows you to dry delicate fabrics.
