"An excellent tumble dryer."

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good

Cons: none

"This is a truly brilliant tumble dryer. Almost flawless I'd say. If there is any one gripe it's the noise but then again it aint' that bad either (I usually have to close two doors to almost entirely block the noise out). It handles a large amount of laundry in one go (8kg) and dries as well as could possibly be expected and extremely thoroughly.

I've never had this dryer going for more than 85 minutes and that was only one time. It has basic maintenance and the most complicated thing is cleaning the condenser unit, and the best way to do that I've found is to pop it in the sink and just use a watering can (or similar) a few times to rinse it through thoroughly (if your sink is shallow, like mine that is…).

Other than that the fluff filter and water container are so easy to clean/drain it's a joke. Easily one of the best purchases I've ever made. Get one, you won't be sorry. Seriosuly considering indesit for any potential future purchases as well."

"Good Value Purchase"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, looks good

Cons: Noisy

"First time stand alone drier user. Combo washer/drier was awful. This one dries really well and able to open the door at any time to check is handy! Water tray easy to empty. Huge drum. Very lightweight to move into position. Only thing that bothers me is it is a bit loud but have nothing to compare to so overall good buy so far."

"Does what it says on the tin!"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: none

"This is my first condenser dryer and Im very impressed. This model doesnt have a lot of fancy dials and switches.....just the revalant ones. On/off switch,low/high heat, empty water light and timer dial. It dries a load of big towels in approx 80mins. The 8kg drum size is perfect for my family size of 4 adults. I wouldnt hesitate to reccommend this product."

Indesit IDC85 Condenser Tumble Dryer

For a large family, you’ll need a big machine to help you with your drying. That’s where the IDC85 comes in. It’s simply design, making it very easy to use, and does exactly what it says on the tin. No complicated features, just effective drying.

With an 8kg capacity you can dry the equivalent of 24 wet T-shirts. It’ll even take the duvet cover, sheets and pillow cases for a king sized and three single beds. It’s sure to make wash day much simpler for you.

Thanks to the reverse tumble action which moves the drum in both directions, it’s excellent at preventing creases in your clothes. It’s really useful for saving time and effort on your ironing. There’s a removable filter too - it’s easy to clean so you’ll always have the most efficient machine.

Another popular feature is the refresh option. It uses cool air to get stale smells out of your clean clothes. It’s very handy for jackets and blazers and especially good for lifting out smoke smells too.

As a condenser dryer you can store it almost anywhere. It doesn’t need to be externally vented. All the excess water is collected in a water bottle which is really easy to access. This needs to be emptied frequently so that it doesn’t hinder the performance of the tumble dryer.
