Introduction

If the appliance industry can be likened to that of the world of ice cream, full of experimental new flavors and good ol' favorites, we may very well have found one of the most vanilla dryers on the market today. (That said, we mean no disrespect to vanilla.) The Frigidaire Affinity FAQE7001LW produced mediocre drying performance that was easily forgettable, had almost no extra features to spice up the drying experience, and so few cycles as to be laughably plain. It even looks like a cubic scoop of the dairy original, with its bland and barren white front. True, the price may be right for lots of people: a $699 MSRP makes this a clear budget model, and we even found online sales that dropped it down to about $625. There are other products in that price range which do a much better job and give you more bang for your buck, however. Frankly, we'd take good ol' Phish Food over a bowl of this any day.
