Look like decent reviews on Reevoo for the 7KG version.
(http://www.reevoo.com/p/indesit-idc75).

The IDC75 (7KG version of this) got quite hot previously when it was on offer for £179.99 at Sainsbury's, so for an extra fiver (or extra nothing if you use TCB) an extra KG doesn't look too shabby.

£299 @ Argos.

Indesit are Hotpoint arent they? Pretty well known (and decent) brand

They are not a decent brand - I had an indecit dishwasher which I had to keep calling the repair man out to under store warranty. The repair man said Indecit quality was rubbish and they replaced it with another brand after they got fed up repairing it.

i was thinking of buying this.
whats a 'decent' alternative?
also what will last longer condenser or vented?

Energy efficiency is C - not that good. you will spend more money in electricity.

Based on average use, this will use about £75 of electric per year.

An "A" rated one will use about £40.

This is £190. Decent "A" rated ones are £600+.

It'd take nearly 12 years to recoup the price difference.

I wouldn't expect a drier to last 12 years.

your calculations above are a little misleading.

This C rated dryer being used only 200 times per year would consume 896KWh per year. Take an average of 15p per KWh your running cost per year is £134.40

Take a Siemens A Rated dryer WT46W566GB using the same figures above it would cost only £48 per year giving an annual saving of £86.40 per year.

The Indesit costs £184.99 x 2 ( it is only expected to last 5 years ) = total cost of £1713.98 over 10 years

The Siemens WT46W566GB costs £640 at John Lewis ( trading your old one in ) and will last at least 10 years. Total cost over 10 years would be £1120.

Saving you £593.98 ( nearly £60 per year ) or 35% whichever way you prefer to look at it. Even if you are lucky and the Indesit dryer lasts the 10 years you will still spend £400 more using this product.

Plus your clothes will be cared for better and you are much less likely to get a repair bill ( Siemens is fully guaranteed for 5 years )

This calculation is based on today's electricity prices - they will no doubt increase over the next 10 years making your savings even greater.

By the way the Siemens WT46W566GB is currently the which bestbuy and is the most efficient tumble dryer in the world !

We use our dryer 3/4 times per week and changing to this dryer in March this year took £30 a month of our electricity bill

I certainly wouldn't expect an indesit drier to last 12 years, the Bosch one that I have is 11 years old and has never broken down.

My calculations are based on figures from sust-it.net.

Though they do not have this exact drier, they have a different 8KG one with the same kWh rating (5.12). According to that, this drier would use £79.22 per year.

The same site lists the Siemens WT46W566 as £28.29 per year.

This makes it £50 per year cheaper.

I'm not looking to get into an argument about a drier.

This is the cheapest available if this is what you want.

If you want a £750 tumble drier, then go ahead, you may save in the long run.

not looking to argue - was just pointing out to anyone who would consider a more efficient model that the figures you were quoting were not a fair reflection - which you have confirmed in your revised figures.

I agree - if you want cheap then this is, and I voted it hot as it is a good price for this model.
