Customer said it was a good dryer; cons were that it has too many programmes to choose from. Customers said it was easy to use and efficient, a good all round dryer which looks good in graphite although it also comes in white. They said it was good looking and quality built and that the final beep to indicate the end of the cycle was not too loud and annoying and that the machine runs quietly.
Too many programmes
