Simple and user-friendly, the inexpensive dryers are certain to offer less features compared to the high-end models, but they are still able to offer the standard settings that are required to complete the efficient drying.
Brand-names like Kenmore, amana, and Maytag offer a variety of less expensive products. We took a look at models priced at $500 or below to find out what users have to say about them. Here's what we know about cheaper models:
- Energy efficiency: users report that inexpensive models tend to be less energy efficient than more expensive models.
- Performance: even though these dryers are at the cheaper end of the market, they still get very high ratings from users in relation to high performance.
- Quiet: user opinion indicates that these aren't the quietest models on the market, in comparison to higher end models.
- Quality: money doesn't buy quality, when it comes to dryers; users report that models that cost less than $500 actually have higher quality on average than the $500+ models.
Even at the lower end of the market, users are in agreement that these appliances are still able to offer enough quality in performance and build. There are slightly fewer drying and temperature settings than those offered on the mid and high range models, but this doesn't mean the cost-effective appliances aren't able to keep the clothes protected throughout the drying process.
