Indesit Start IDC85S Freestanding Condenser Tumble Dryer - Silver

Simple and spacious. Made right here in the UK, the Indesit IDC85S doesn’t over-complicate matters with endless cycles and too many bells and whistles. Instead, it gives you a huge 8kg drum, which is big enough to hold up to 24 T-shirts at once, as well as a cold refresh cycle if you just fancy sprucing up the shirt you’ve been wearing all day before your big night out.

"Great Purchase"

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

Cons: none

"This tumble dryer is the best I have owned yet. It has a large drying capacity and dries very quickly. I use it on low heat for normal washing and high heat for bulky items like towels, bathrobes, etc. It even has a 'freshen up' programme that blows cool air only to refreshen items.

This dryer is simple to use and I am very impressed. I would definately reccommend to anyone looking to purchase a new dryer."

Reviewed by: Cullompton

Pros: Easy to use, no more going outside to the shed, it works

Cons: Noisy, no adjustable feet, not economic on electric, top scratches to easily., overpriced

"It's ok nothing special to say it doesn't have adjustable feet so it rocks on uneven floor. It's noisier than I hoped but I guess that's to be expected . It does seem to use a Lot of electric though. Over all it's drum is a good size the condenser works well and is easy to use . I expected higher standard designing on something as simple as feet but all in all I'm satisfied with the purchase. It does the job for a high volume of family washing"

"Great Item"

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

Cons: none

"A good tumble dryer for the price. Its quieter than my old one and simple to use. I got the silver one and its looks very smart too. The door opens to the left which is great for where I have it in the kitchen and the water compartment is at the top, so you don't have to bend down to get it out to empty it."

Indesit IDC85S

An 8kg drum is a pretty decent size for the drying needs of a medium sized family. You'll get around 24 T-shirts inside the drum at once, and need that little extra room to allow your clothes to breathe.

As far as aesthetics go the contemporary silver finish will add a touch of modernity as well as sitting alongside your current appliances as though it was a member of the family. Considering how easy it is to use this sturdy tumble dryer, it will fit into you laundry routine in no time at all.

The IDC85S is a condenser dryer which holds an energy rating of C. This is about the average, as far as tumble ratings go, so while you won’t be saving the rainforests just yet you’ll still be on your way to green fingers. The fact that it’s a condenser model is also going to help you save in the long run. You can even use the water taken from the tank in your iron as it’s completely clean and totally deionised. Talk about recycling!

While the IDC85S may be a simple model, it has some very useful features up its sleeves. The final cool tumble will make sure you’re not playing hot potato with your freshly laundered clothes and the reverse tumble action of the drum ensures you’re not going to have heavy creases set in your favourite glad rags. These two combined might even let you wear it straight out of the drum. It’s certainly worth avoiding the ironing board if you get the chance.
