Best tested dryer brands

Every year, the Dutch Consumers’ Association tests what the best clothes dryers are. They also look at which brands are the best in the test. Year after year Miele comes out at number one for the best clothes dryer brand. The owners of Miele clothes dryers are most satisfied with the performance of their dryer and the technological gadgets that improve ease of use. The only downside to this washer dryer is that they are quite expensive.

With an average of a 9.3 for brand satisfaction, nearly half also indicate the owners of Miele clothes dryers are likely to go for a Miele again next time. According to the Consumers’ Association, the brands below score best on brand satisfaction:

  1. Miele
  2. Bosch
  3. Siemens
  4. AEG
  5. Samsung

It is striking that all these brands (including Miele) score less well on price-quality ratio. This is because these popular brands are generally much more expensive. Brands that offer cheaper clothes dryers score higher in this category. These are Beko, Indesit and Zanussi.

The best dryers of 2022

Are you looking for a new dryer? We would like to give you a hand with that. A dryer is not just a purchase. They cost between 300 and 2,000 euros and last on average ten years. For this reason, you will naturally want to buy a good tumble dryer that meets your needs and expectations. For this reason, we are pleased to present our top 5 best tumble dryers of 2022. But first, we would like to explain the difference between the different types of dryers:

  1. The heat pump dryer is the most energy efficient and almost always has energy class A++ or A+++. The heat pump dryer dries at a relatively low temperature so the drying process takes a little longer but fragile clothing remains more beautiful and your energy consumption low. Most clothes dryers sold are heat pump dryers.
  2. The condenser dryer dries a high temperature, the drying time is therefore shorter but the risk of wear and tear is greater. The condenser dryer therefore uses more energy and usually has energy label A or energy label B.
  3. The vented dryer has even higher energy consumption and is the least economical. For this reason, you will find fewer vented dryers when you are looking for a new clothes dryer. Because of the high annual energy costs, we don’t recommend buying an vented dryer.
