In this review, we’re going to be taking a look at the Panda Portable Compact Laundry Dryer. While reading this review, you’ll learn all about what this compact dryer has to offer, and whether or not it offers what you need. When you are finished reading this review, you’ll know if this is the right portable dryer for you.
Portable & Compact
Just as the name implies, this dryer is portable and compact. As such, picking it up, moving it around, and setting it up are all very easy processes.
What makes the portable and compact nature of this dryer so useful, though, is the fact that it’s very easy for you to use this portable dryer in a smaller space. If you are living in a small apartment or you own a small house, then you can easily set up this portable dryer in those spaces.
As such, this is a great machine to have if you want an easy way to dry your laundry, but you don’t possess the space necessary to set up a standard dryer.
In the box that this portable dryer comes in, you’ll find the portable dryer, the components you need, and the wall mounting kit.
With the wall mounting kit, you can easily mount this portable dryer to the wall. If you would like the warm air flowing through the dryer to flow underneath the dryer and outside of it, then mounting it on the wall is a pretty great choice. Plus, the wall mounting kit is super easy to use.
As for the other components, there are different pipes and components that allow for air flow. Each one of these components attaches to the portable dryer in an effortless manner. And, when you’ve set those components up, all you need to do is plug the portable dryer in and that’s it!
With the easy set-up process this portable dryer offers, you won’t have any problems setting this portable dryer up and using it!
Large Drying Capacity
Inside of this portable dryer, you’ll find that you have access to a total capacity of around thirteen-pounds – or 3.5 cubic-feet. While that may not sound like a lot of space – if you’re comparing this portable dryer to a regular dryer, it isn’t – it’s more than enough space for two people, living together, to dry their clothes off at the same time.
As a result of having that large drying capacity, you will only need to run one drying cycle, for all of your clothing, more often than not. Instead of having to wait a long time for several drying cycles – which is what happens with other, much smaller portable dryers – the entire drying process takes a much shorter period of time, and allows for an easy drying process.
On the front of this portable dryer, to the bottom left, you’ll find that there’s a small set of controls. With these controls, you have access to various drying modes and a timer. Each one of these functions is crucial to the drying process, and using these functions, you are able to dry your laundry in the exact manner that you desire.
As for the drying modes, there are two of them. “Eco” is the first one you will see. With “Eco” mode, the dryer uses less electricity and, as such, dries your laundry in a less thorough manner. But, if you don’t have that much laundry to wash, it’s a very useful mode that allows you to conserve electricity.
The other drying mode is simply “Normal”. More often than not, you’ll probably be using “Normal” mode, as it’s the mode that allows for the most thorough, and effective drying.
Right underneath the “Mode” button, there is a “Sensor Dry” button. With the “Sensor Dry” function, the dryer detects just how wet your laundry is, and then chooses the right drying settings for you. If you want a convenient and easy drying process, this is an excellent function to use.
To the right of those buttons, there’s a dial that allows you to choose the amount of time the dryer runs for. Each period of time is accompanied with a color, and each color shows just how thorough and intense the drying process will be, if run for that period of time.
Conclusion: Efficient, If Expensive, Dryer
In the end, if you can look past the very high-price, the Panda Portable Compact Laundry Dryer is a very good portable dryer that works well and offers a convenient drying experience.
