You know I am sure appliances shouldn’t excite me this
much! But the AEG T88595IS Heat Pump Tumble Dryer is such a clever machine. I was only too glad to see the back of my
previous machine, admittedly the AEG is more expensive (£849) but you can tell
it’s a better quality appliance all round.

For one I like that I can now see how long is remaining of
the cycle. It was always guesswork with
the last machine, as it did not have a display to let me know. I feel more organised planning my day when I
have a visual countdown to work with.
It also came with an optional draining kit which means you don’t have to
manually empty the water out after each cycle, it can then drain out of your
existing washing machine waste water pipe – another useful time saver.
We have also found it quieter, usually the boys would
grumble they could hear the old machine when they were trying to sleep but so
far so good with the AEG T88595IS and for that I am truly grateful! Come bedtime I want the boys to sleep
without disruption as mummy is frazzled by then and ready for wine…
It is very efficient on energy usage; the
energy class is A++ this pleases my dad no end as he panics about how much I
rely on my tumble dryer. In the good
old days air-drying might have been all the rage, but it’s not for me. Plus with intelligent OptiSense
making sure clothes are never unnecessarily over-dried you can’t go wrong with
this model. I wonder if I can even
convert my dad!
The reason I am a huge fan of tumble drying is I get fed up
of hanging clothes out only for a bird to splatter my fresh laundry with its
droppings or it starts to rain and you have to collect it all back in and start
again! Plus never mind just drying the
clothes you normally then have the arduous task of ironing to face, life is too short for any
of that nonsense. I just want to chuck
the clothes in the tumble and take them out looking crease free and ready to
Even better still I best not admit
how good the AEG new tumble dryer really is and pretend I have spent the entire
day ironing – whilst really I have your feet up watching Netflix letting this
sophisticated machine do ALL the hard work for me. As I really am dependent on my tumble dryer, it’s important for me to
get the right model and finally I have found it.
The fluff collector (okay filter
probably sounds more technical) did not full up as fast as my old machine. I think it’s a good indicator that the AEG
is generally a gentler machine. Handy
as I like to tumble everything whether its delicate or not, I haven’t got time
to give a garment special treatment – us mum’s are pressed for time. But AEG
has taken care of that with its unique AbsoluteCareTM System – it
tailors its temperature and drum speed to the type of fabric your tumbling.
So can a new tumble
dryer transform my life? It’s early days but so far I would say YES.
