DH has finally agreed to let me get one. I've never had one (apart from living at home with my parents).
so what should I be looking for in a dryer and what brands are the better ones?

Can't help you because my dryer is about 14 years old, so subbing cause I have a feeling I'll need to know this info soon

We are currently investigating this too
Hubby is keen on a heat pump dryer - a lot more expensive but apparently much more energy and time efficient.
I'd love to see what suggestions other people have, but I have pretty much palmed off the responsibility of decision to hubby!!

I have a very basic (and cheap) Simpson dryer ... and its never missed a beat.
They are very energy hungry though (I think that is all dryers) but its great.

I have a fisher and pykel. It gets used constantly! It's not a timer one where you put it on for X minutes but it 'senses' when stuff is dry. Never heard of a heat pump one but I guess it depends if $$ difference is comparable to energy saved

The only thing I don't like about the machine is that it often senses that the door is open (it's not) and stops itself. We think it's because it's not on the ground or wall mounted. It's on a little table which isn't level or very stable. We've worked out how to keep the door shut tight and now it works perfectly.

I think I will be using it a fair bit in the upcoming months so will definitely need something that doesn't chew through the power too much and I like the idea of it having a sensor rather than a timer option.
