Hoover Vision HD VHC 691B
The big machine doesn’t necessarily mean big bills, either. In fact the Hoover Vision HD VHC 691B has an energy efficiency rating of B, which is about as good as it gets for modern tumble dryers. Sure you’re not going to have an appliance that the more eco-friendly amongst us swoon at, but you’re not going to have an energy guzzling drier that leaves you with big bills.
With lots of auto settings the Hoover Vision HD VHC 691B is also easy to use. It has sensor drying, which means the Hoover Vision HD VHC 691B will look at the moisture levels of the clothes and in the machine to figure out when your clothes have finished drying, automatically ending the cycle when items are deemed dry. This is great as it will stop you faffing about with drying and re-drying your clothes.
This said, people have reported quite mixed results with sensor drying — many say it’s excellent and leaves the clothes bone dry, whilst others believe that it is a disappointing addition that fails to live up to its billing. Thankfully there’s a variety of cycles on the Hoover Vision HD VHC 691B so you can play around and find something that suits you.
The water collection container is at the very bottom of the Hoover Vision HD VHC 691B, which does make getting the water out a bit of a pain. It’s fairly quiet and has good extra features like a delay function, though.
