The Kenmore Elite 61633 electric dryer is a top of the line dryer equipped with high tech features that make doing laundry much easier. It is available in a sleek black design with silver details and has modern electronic touch screen controls and LED lights to let you know which cycle you’ve selected. It has a whopping holding capacity of 9.2 cu. ft. as well, making it perfect for families who want to dry two loads at once or for drying bulky items like bedding
Despite its high capacity and ability to do heavy duty drying jobs, this dryer is actually extremely energy efficient. In fact, it received an Energy Star from the EPA. Its efficiency is due to all of the highly intelligent features that it is equipped with such as SmartDry Ultra Technology and Steam Refresh, both of which make drying and steaming your clothes extremely easy. In fact, you won’t ever need to iron again because the Steam Refresh feature removes all wrinkles for you, leaving your clothes fresh and wrinkle free.
I know this probably all sounds too good to be true and that you’re probably wondering just how much
such an intelligent, innovative, high quality dryer like this goes for. Well, it certainly is not cheap. This dryer runs on the very high end of the pricing spectrum, but you do get what you pay for with this model.
This dryer comes equipped with all kinds of great features including SmartDry Ultra Technology, Steam Refresh, Wrinkle Guard,10 different drying cycle options, 5 dryness level options, and 5 temperature control options. All of these features create a truly customizable drying experience that is perfect for all of your drying needs from your thin delicates to your bulky towels and bedding.
The SmartDry Ultra Technology feature monitors both the moisture of the laundry and the temperature of the dryer and automatically adjusts the heat and time of the drying cycle so that it is perfectly catered towards that specific load of laundry. This saves on energy as well as ensures that your laundry does not over or under dry. And if you aren’t able to get your clothes out of the dryer as soon as the cycle ends, there’s no need to worry because the Wrinkle Guard will keep them on a heatless tumble to prevent any wrinkling from occurring until you’re able to get them out.
The Steam Refresh feature is a great way to remove wrinkles from clothes or touch them up quickly if you’re in a rush to leave. It freshens up clothes, removing any musty odors as well, so if you want to wear your favorite blouse again but don’t have time to wash, dry, and iron it, you can just throw it in the dryer on Steam Refresh and remove all the wrinkles and odors from your last wear. It does this all in only 20 minutes too.
This dryer comes with a variety of different drying cycles too, along with 5 different temperature and dryness level options. The cycles range from delicates to bedding to normal to heavy duty to quick touch up, meaning that there is a cycle setting that is perfect for nearly every type of load you could need to dry. Another cool feature that gives you control over the drying cycle is the damp signal which alerts you when your clothes are halfway done drying in case you want to remove anything halfway through to air dry the rest of the way.
This dryer has a one year warranty as well which covers any defects of the materials or defects in workmanship during installation for the first year after you purchase it. This is a fairly standard warranty among most dryers. However, most dryers do not cost as much as this one does, so it could stand to have a bit of a longer warranty.
|SmartDry Ultra Technology automatically customizes heat and temperature of each dry based on the load||Extremely high price point|
|Very large holding capacity of 9.2 cu. ft.||Could have a longer warranty since it costs so much|
|Steam Refresh and Wrinkle Guard keep clothes wrinkle free|
|Wide variety of drying cycle options for all different types of laundry loads|
|It received an Energy Star from the EPA|
|Sleek, modern design|
only true downside to this dryer is how much it costs and how short the warranty is based on that cost. I would highly recommend this dryer to anyone who is able to afford it because it has the intelligence and innovation to cater to just about every type of drying setting you may need as well as the ability to remove wrinkles and odors from clothes in less than half an hour.
