Product Overview

Make laundry days effortless with this tumble dryer from Smeg. With an 8kg drum, it’s ideal for medium-sized households. It uses clever heat pump technology to thoroughly dry the load while saving energy. It works by recycling hot air created inside the drum so heat isn’t wasted. Intelligent sensor drying protects clothes from over-drying by measuring the moisture in your laundry and automatically stopping the cycle when everything is dry. It also has a wool programme which uses cool air and gentle drum movements to leave your favourite jumpers and scarves looking as good as new.

Heat pump tumble dryers are super-efficient, but to save the most energy, programmes may take a little longer to dry your clothes than on standard dryers. It’s important not to overload the drum either, so they can perform at their best.

Fantastic Product

After reading the reviews, we decided to purchase this tumble dryer. It’s fantastic, I have nothing negative to say about it. Worth the money!

Smeg tumble dryer

I've only had it a week so not much to say really. Comes with a two year warranty which is good. Bought this as my last Samsung heat pump dryer destroyed itself just out of warranty, design fault apparently.

Pros: Value for money, Looks good Cons: None

pleased so far

Not used it much yet, but seems quiet and reasonably efficient. Not sure about all the programs, do you really need all those?

Good dryer but takes a while to master the settings

Have been running this nearly non-stop since receiving it. Much queieter than previous dryer and doesn’t seem to pump out as much heat. There are lots of drying settings but it’s not very clear what the differences are. More often than not I pick the setting I think I need and then have to stick it back on for another 10 minutes at the end.

Pros: Quiet, Good build quality, Looks good Cons: Complicated

Good Looking Product

Great product that was reasonably priced, previously had a Samsung Dryer which was much more expensive this machine is as good if not better. For a busy household such as ours it has been reliable and I'm now back in the Mr's good books.

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good Cons: None

Decided to invest in something better than we had before so chose SMEG Haven't been disappointed at all Great machine, quiet and so much more efficient (quicker drying etc) than the “top of range” we had before

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good Cons: None
