I saw this and thought it was a good deal. Asked John Lewis if they’d price match and they agreed.
Just wasn’t sure about the AEG brand. Haven’t had an AEG before so wasn’t sure how good they are as I’ve always been loyal to Bosch.

I did tons of research last night - apparently AEG is the brand used by John Lewis for their 'own brand' stuff. Gets great reviews generally it seems. Around the same 'level' as Bosch. I got one arriving tomorrow (hopefully) so I'll let you know if it's any good!
Consider a heat pump model. They cost a little more but the electricity savings can be huge if you're going to use it a lot.

Yep but it takes 4 hours to dry a load compared to around 1 hour with this. And energy savings aren't all that much - especially when compared to how much more they cost. We're likely to do 2-3 loads a week, doesn't work out to save any money at all with a heat pump model.
Ours is going in the garage and I read you can’t use heat pumps in there.

Thanks for this, will be interesting to know if it’s any good. Is it this offer you bought? I’ve used an AEG washing machine before which was great.

Yeah, if you don't use it a lot it likely isn't worth it - although your 4 hours claim is just plain wrong. The big difference in drying time is between vented and condensing dryers. All condensing dryers are relatively slow compared to vented but heat pump isn't significantly slower.

As the heat pump dryers are cheaper than a drying rack in the spare room, we use ours a lot during winter and the saving are significant for a family of four. For 2-3 loads though, I can see you're not likely to get the returns you need.

You can put them wherever you like but they won't work very well in cold conditions. If it's sub-zero outside, it won't well at all. Condensing dryers can cause condensation problems in a garage though, a lot of people stick with vented dryers for that reason.

Historically AEG was considered an equal of if not better than Bosch in terms of quality and reliability. AEG has been part of the Electrolux group for a few years now and slots in above Zanussi in their brand heirachy.

My AEG made JL branded Heat pump drier takes nowhere near 4 hours to dry an 8kg load - it "says" 2h 39 mins for a full load, to VERY dry but depending on the materials in there can take anywhere up to an hour less, and the time counts down steadily as it goes - it has never been more. The previous one I had was a little slower, but not much.

It works great now, BUT... AEG products are a nightmare to get repaired, and I won't be buying any more. The service network "Serviceforce" is much worse than a bad dream, it is sheer hell - even with JL screaming at them it took TEN WEEKS to repair mine, and so many visits my life wasn't my own for all that time - so much so I got substantial compensation from JL, but it wasn't a pleasant experience, and won't be repeated, that's the last AEG/Electrolux/Zanussi product I ever buy - you are stuck with them if it goes wrong, and they DO.

Yep this machine... just arrived and it seems good so far. Reasonably solid build, nothing feels like it's going to break, door feels reassuringly strong and there's a big water tank in the top left compartment. Just testing it now with a fresh load from our 9kg washing machine, and it's swallowed the lot with room to spare. Piece of cake to get it set up and the dials are intuitive. Select program, then select dryness level if required, and anti crease etc.

It's a nice and quiet machine, more like a fan going in the background than the grumble grundle that tumble dryers often have. Load's not finished yet, but guessing it will work well... if not I will report back again!32139471-I1Qow.jpg

Cheers for the info about heat pumps, I was going from reviews and info I read online - no actual experience of them :-) Suspect all white goods are a nightmare to get fixed... we'll see how long this lasts!

Thanks for the update. All sounds interesting and I’ll probably end up going for it.
