Normally youâ€™d never dream of putting woollen or delicate garments in the dryer but now you can thanks to the smart and innovative thinking by Panasonicâ€™s design and development team.
Panasonicâ€™s new NH-P70 heat pump dryer has intelligent twin sensors that continually monitor the dryness of clothes and adjust the drying time and temperature while its Panasonic designed Sazanami drum is extremely gentle on clothes and reduces creasing.
Designed to maximise energy and water efficiency, the NH-P70 has also been awarded the top of the scale 6 star energy performance rating due to its clever heat exchange system. The heat used for drying is created via the heat exchange in the dryerâ€™s heat pump, which differs to traditional vented and condenser dryers that utilise an element to heat the air.
Inverter technology allows for variable drying temperatures of between 45-69 degrees, which is ideal for all types material options including wool, nylon, lingerie and sportswear.
The NH-P70 also operates as a sealed system so no venting is required making it ideal for apartments and homes with limited laundry space. Internal lint filters also ensure a mess-free laundry, unlike vented dryers which have a habit of expelling lint around the window or walls.
The NH-P70 is also quieter than traditional dryers to operate due to a brushless inverter motor and silent arch design, which absorbs sounds the dryer naturally makes.
It also has an internal light which is handy for besting the sock monster.
