Choosing the best Siemens tumble dryer
Siemens' tumble dryers range is quite small, and all its current models are condenser or heat-pump dryers. They use sensor technology to work out when laundry is dry, saving you the hassle of setting a timer and repeatedly checking to see if it’s ready.
The Siemens dryers we’ve tested have capacities of 7kg to 8kg. As we test dryers at 70% full to keep our testing realistic, 7kg comfortably provides enough space to dry 20 shirts while an 8kg drum can accommodate 22.
