Which brand of dryer should you buy? We've identified the best of the bunch based on our test results and feedback from our members on satisfaction and reliability.

You may not use it every day, but on a wet weekend a dryer can be a real laundry lifesaver. Whether you're in the market for a vented, condenser or high-end heat pump dryer, through our extensive testing we've found which ones give consistently good results – and which ones are a bit hit and miss.

Many of us associate an overall brand name with the performance and quality of each individual product, but brand perception can change over time. The brands your parents trusted wouldn't necessarily be the same ones you could trust today. 

CHOICE has tested over 60 different dryers over the past five years in our labs, covering much of the $190 million annual market in Australia. We see great dryers, as well as some that we wouldn't recommend. Occasionally you might need to know about a particular dryer that we haven't tested.

Best Brand results are for CHOICE members only.

Our guide to buying the best clothes dryer is free and has lots of great information and advice.

CHOICE Best Brand helps guide you when choosing a product with the knowledge that not only has the brand performed well overall in our lab testing throughout the year, but it's also well regarded by CHOICE members for customer satisfaction and reliability.
