Energy efficient heat pump tumble dryers can cost up to £1,000, so it's tempting to consider the Hotpoint NT M10 81, which retails for under £400. It might offer the holy grail of a low upfront price and minimal running costs, but can it actually dry your clothes? And does it take an age to do it? See how this tumble dryer performed in our test lab by reading the full review.
