I LOVE to do laundry. I'm very fussy about it, so anything that helps to make the process more efficient I'm all for!
For years I've used stackable sweater dryers from Lillian Vernon. They worked pretty well but really aren't all that sturdy and would fall apart easily. But the price was very reasonable as I purchased my five at a garage sale.
But a few years ago, I remember seeing the Hamilton Beach Drying Station. Wow, did I want one of those! But I remember them being very pricey!
Fast forward to after Christmas this year. While doing my after Christmas shopping for reduced Yankee Candles at Bed Bath and Beyond, I spot the dryer! On special for $17! Be still my heart! Wait, I have a coupon!! WoooHoooo....ends up costing me just over $12!
I tried it out the other day.
The platforms are smaller then the Lillian Vernon version but much more sturdy. The fit easily in the rack. Do they dry 75% faster as touted in their ad? Not really. I had these sweater drying for about 7 hours and they were still damp when I shut the blower off. (Which by the way is surprisingly quiet.) But by morning they were all perfectly dry. Drying time is much faster on my old Lillian Vernon ones if I put them in front of the blower on my fireplace. But for in warmer months, I think I'm really going to like the Hamilton Beach. Should work extremely well for doilies and table runners. All and all, I'm pretty happy with it!
