- Condenser dryers are cheap
- You don't need an exhaust hose outside
- High power consumption
- Operating costs are therefore high
- Indoor air is heated properly
- Collection containers must be emptied regularly
The further development of condenser dryers are heat pump dryers. They consume much less energy and protect the laundry thanks to lower temperatures. If you are not afraid of the additional expenses when buying, you should use such a model - see Buying a tumble dryer: The test winner of the Stiftung Warentest.
If you still want to buy a classic condenser dryer …
Stiftung Warentest test winner: condenser dryer from Bosch
While the Stiftung Warentest recently only dealt with the better heat pump dryers, in 2016 there was a test with condensation dryers without a heat pump. At that time, the test winner was the Bosch WTG86400 with a satisfactory quality rating (grade 2.6). The Stiftung Warentest calculated electricity costs of 787 euros over 10 years, while the heat pump winner incurred only 227 euros.

Bestseller at Amazon: Beko condenser dryer
The Amazon Beko DC 7130 N, on the other hand, is a condenser dryer from energy efficiency class B (like the Bosch model mentioned above). The device probably scores above all for its low price, but offers important functions such as anti-crease, quick program and electronic moisture measurement.

Conclusion on condenser dryers
Technically, classic condenser dryers are outdated. In times of rising energy costs and energy saving measures, you should think twice about buying. If you only look at the money, you can get away with them at the current prices cheaper if you choose a cheap device and don't use it too often. We only want to make a recommendation for dryers with a heat pump.
