Large Drying Capacity
This tumble dryer is designed for family use; one of the features that make it ideal for large household is its large drum capacity. It can hold a 6.5kg load which is large for a tumble dryer. This means that you can wash large loads at one time instead of splitting it into several smaller loads. This not only saves you time in tumble drying, but it also saves you money as you won’t have to use it as much as you would a smaller capacity tumble dryer, saving you energy and money. It’s also ideal for large families and households as a lot of clothes can be put in at one go.
Making Ironing Easier
This Hotpoint condenser dryer makes ironing a lot easier. The cool setting is ideal for making clothing ironing ready, in fact it’s so good that sometimes the clothes don’t need to be ironed at all. It does this by cooling the clothes down and retaining a little water, not enough to make them wet, but enough to make them easier to iron.
This tumble dryer also has Reverse Action that helps decrease clothes and save on ironing. The Reverse Action technology makes the drum move in different directions instead of just one. This helps prevent clothes from getting tangled together too much and creasing.
These features are incredibly helpful and will save you time spent ironing.
Easy to Use Tumble Dryer
This vented tumble dryer has 16 programmes and 2 heat settings, but it is still easy to use. It has a simple design and easy to understand controls which make selecting a programme easy. Unlike other tumble dryers the different programmes are easy to comprehend and select so you can quickly find the right cycle for your load.
There are a number of other features that make the Hotpoint TVYM650C6P easy to use, including its large drum size. It also has an extra-large porthole door; this makes it easier to load clothes into as well as to get them out afterwards.
Value for Money
One of the main benefits of this Hotpoint tumble dryer is its price; at around £159 it’s very low priced for a tumble dryer, especially one with a large sized drum capacity. It’s also unusual for a tumble dryer of this price to have so many programmes, often they only have a few. However, this tumble dryer has 16 programmes and two heat settings. What’s more is that they are effective; they dry clothes well and help remove creases from them. People sceptical of the price have no need to worry as the Hotpoint tumble dryer gets clothes dry effectively.
Also, as the tumble dryer has a large 6.5kg capacity it means that more clothes can be dried at once. This saves you money as, if you had a smaller capacity machine, you would have to do several more washes and spend a lot more on electricity.
