Expert review

The Smeg DHT81LUK heat-pump tumble dryer saves energy by re-using the heat from warm air leaving the drum to continue to dry the load. You can fill it with around 8kg of cottons and in our tests we found it to be a very easy dryer to use. But just how good is it at drying clothes? Read on for our full review to find out.
