Introduction

Find yourself thinking back on the good ol' days, when life was easier and chores were more straightforward? Ever catch yourself wishing that the task laundry was simpler, and that you didn't have to navigate through all those buttons and features found on modern appliances? Looking to save a bucket-load of money? Well, look no further than the Hotpoint HTDP120EDWW. This dryer looks and feels like an appliance you'd find in a home two generations ago, and works with the same over-heated approach that got clothes so warm and toasty back in the 1960's. With a crank timer, flimsy lint trap, and virtually no extra features or extensive cycle list to over complicate things, this dryer is perfect for consumers with a certain sense of nostalgia.

On a genuinely positive note, this dryer is a budget-conscious consumer's dream, with an MSRP of $479. With online sale prices as low as $360, that makes it one of—if not the —cheapest models we've tested that actually gets your clothes completely dry more often than not. True, temperatures peaked a bit higher than we usually like to see, but if you don't typically clean expensive clothes or delicate fabrics at home, this machine is actually a really good buy. Even though it may look like a bit of underwhelming throwback to an earlier era, you'll want to consider this one if general performance and price tags are two of your top concerns.
