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.

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

Smeg heat pump tumble dryer

I read the reviews on this tumble dryer so knew what to expect, it does dry quicker than I thought (read reviews) and the clothes feel newer,( if that makes sense )the only down side is that the clothes do get tangled in it especially bedding, which is why I have given it 4 stars. Overall I am happy with it so far.

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good Cons: Expensive

Fantastic

If you want a dryer to actually dry your clothes then this is it. It is easy to use and it looks good, what more could you want?

Settling in

Well built, quieter than expected but long drying time and requires additional programme to dry clothes ready to wear. This is the only downside but the proof of A rating will be when the electricity bill arrives to compare to previous vented dryer.

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good

Smog heat pump dryer

Previously had a vented dryer so this new dryer does take longer but the advantage is that you can site it anywhere no condensation build up in my kitchen so far so pretty pleased

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good Cons: Expensive
