Compact Portable Dryer

I live in Oregon where it rains 9 months of the year. I’d pay $5.00 per load to dry my clothes at the laundry mat only to get them soaking wet loading them in and out of the car. I wanted to have my own dryer but my apartment doesn’t have a 220v plug outlet. Secondly, my apartment doesn’t have a way to vent a dryer to the outside. I wanted a compact portable dryer. I found the Electric Tumble Dryer Compact Stainless Steel Clothes Laundry Dryer, 1.5 cubic feet. The dryer is shipped to you in a plain box.

Dryer Features

The Magic Chef dryer has a 1.5 cubic foot capacity. That is 5.5 pounds of clothes. The inside drum of the dryer is made of stainless steel. It plugs into a standard house plug outlet 110v-120v. I couldn’t believe it! I found a dryer that plugs into any socket in my apartment. No need to have a 220v plug outlet to have a dryer. There is no extra wiring. AMAZING!! It uses 850watts and 500watts on low setting.

The dryer is freestanding. It can sit on the floor, cabinet, table, or stacker shelf. I’m eventually going to get the stacker shelf. It will save space in my small apartment. If you are worried that it might walk off the table. There are anti-walk silent feet you can get.

The dryer measures 16″D x 20″W x 24″H and weighs 38 pounds. It has a front loading swing door with an integrated viewing window.

Lint Filter

The lint filter is located at the back center of the drum. Simply pinch the plastic piece together and pull it out. The filter is a dual filter system. It has a felt like a piece that collects the large pieces. The second piece looks a feels like a softener sheet but it isn’t. I like to use wool balls instead of dryer sheets. The wool balls speed the drying time and soften the clothes.

Temperature Knob

There is an easy to set control knob for convenient time drying. The adjustable timer allows for various drying times. It has a 4 option drying time from cool, warm, hot and air dry. It has 2 options of heat hot and low temperature. This dryer is energy efficient and space saving.

Indoor Venting

The only assembly to do on this dyer is to attach the vent hose in the back. Otherwise, it is ready out of the box. The dryer can be vented indoors. There is no need to cut holes in the walls. The landlord will never know I have it. It comes with a basic vent that you can use; however, many people are buying the indoor vents because they have filters on them. The filters keep the lint from being thrown all over the place.

Compact Portable Dryer is a cute little machine and does a great job at drying my clothes. Now I can save my $5.00 of quarters per load for something else.
