Introduction

Frigidaire's FASE7073LW packs in a lot of features for a mid-range range of dryers. Depending on which one of the many colors you choose from (we tested it in white -- the model number's last two letters change accordingly), it'll set you back at most around $1000, though you'll likely find it on sale for around $750. The FASE7073 series are some of the least expensive dryers to feature a steam dry option plus plenty of customizable cycles. All of the cycles we tested did a fine job getting clothes dry at a reasonable temperature, though they sometimes took awhile to complete. It's easy to load, though the large number of tiny buttons on the glittery control panel may be confusing for some folks.
