The LG DLEX3570W dryer is great at the basics, and it also has a host of useful extras that work. Yes, it gets a load of laundry 100% dry—but it also has quick cycles, and provides steam if you want it. It's affordable, too, and looks great whether you choose white or graphite. We only have two complaints: water for steam comes from a drawer instead of a plumbed hookup, and the smartphone app doesn't work well.

Electrolux EFME617SIW

The Electrolux EFME617SIW earns our unconditional recommendation. Broad and useful cycle list? Check. Customizable options? Check. Huge 8-cu.-ft. stainless steel drum? Check. And to top things off, it not only dries clothes, but dries them at cooler temperatures than almost every other model we've tested. And it's affordable, too.
