Obsolete model. Only B rated efficiency. Far better value available - avoid.

If you go to the above site you can do comparisons on electrical products based on 'lifetime' costs. Just because a product has a low upfront cost doesn't mean that it is competitive over its lifetime. The product mentioned is expensive to run and will cost you more than other similar products over it's expected lifetime. On that basis the product is a no no, for me, and should be avoided as it will cost the owner considerably more in the long run.

OK so not withstanding the fact that the dryer we are talking about isnt on the website, if we go for one similar the yearly cost is £78 on an average tariff (most HUKDers would obviously go for a more cost effective tariff but never mind).

So if we take the lowest annual cost one, a Siemens, we are talking £22 per year - a considerable annual saving of £56 per year. However, this dryer is some £600 more - so to be more cost effective, the Siemens would have to have a lifespan of 11 years.

To give you the benefit of the doubt, lets say we pick another top 20 model (none of which are less than £500). You would still need a lifespan of 6 years to get a payback on this deal.

Congratulations on linking us to a website that completely disproves your point.

On the site the lifetime of a tumble dryer is estimated at 13 years.

The lifetime cost of the Candy machine is in excess of £1,000 in running costs alone, plus the initial purchase.

One might consider purchasing the Hotpoint AQC94F7E1M, expensive at around £420, but the running costs come out at around £510 over the same 13 years.

All I'm pointing out is that the low price for the Candy could be a false economy. In the above example the Candy would still be uncompetitive if they gave it away.

Tumble dryers can 'eat' energy, so, running costs could be a critical consideration for some when making a purchase.

Still available. Thanks OP.

Dumbstruck; I estimate that a) I use my tumble dryer much less than the average user (mostly towels and School uniform - less than 50% of my washing) and b) use it less than 6 months a year (when it's warm, everything goes either outside or on a drying tower).

So bearing in mind that I only use it 25% of the average user, my tumble dryer needs to last around 50 years for it to break even.
