Earlier this summer we gave up on our washer/dryer.
We were fed up with one thing after another breaking, usually being linked to it being a combination device.
We opted for just a new washer, leaving the drying to mother nature. Unfortunately, with the Summer we have had this has not been an ideal solution.
A new drier then, with Winter looming was a top priority. It had to be a condenser type and it had to be a reasonable drum size for a family of six.
It was an amazing coincidence and surprise then to get the chance to review this Candy Smart Condenser Tumble Dryer.
We had a spare slot in the kitchen where a drier would fit and luckily the Candy drier squeezed in nicely. It has a nice size 8kg drum with plenty of drying options and with at the time of typing a snow-covered garden, it has arrived at just the right time.
The Candy Smart GOC 580C Condenser Tumble dryer is an energy rated C tumble drier. With an 8kg drum, suitable for up to the equivalent of 24 cotton T-shirts. Below is an image of the main control panel underneath is an explanation of their functions.
Which is from page 7 and 8 of the instruction manual.
Pluses about tumble dryer are:
- Clothes come out not too creased so most things won’t need much ironing. (A blessing!)
- Water tray and fluff filter are easy to access and filter and water tray lights on display panel telling you when they need doing.
- Either set the time manually or use Automatic settings which will range from bone dry to iron dry.
- These settings are the ones I have used the first few loads and save me wasting electricity drying too long.
- Clothes dry quickly compared to my old washer dryer.
- Timer delay mode allowing you to set it up to switch on in middle of the night when electricity tariff cheaper.
- Very easy to use.
- Has a Good quality look and feel to it. Very impressed.
- Priced at £206-00
Minus points about tumble dryer are:
- Slightly louder than expected. Although not excessive.
- People with mobility issues may struggle to reach the bottom of drier to empty water tray.
- Only Category C energy consumption. A couple of the pluses can help to overcome this.
