If you need a tiny dryer to use in an apartment, tiny house, or RV, check out the Magic Chef 1.5 cu. ft. Compact Electric Dryer (MCSDRY15W). This front-loading dryer can handle up to 5.5 lbs of wet clothes and fits on your countertop. Installation is simple – just plug and go.
The Magic Chef Portable Dryer is built from steel and has a stainless-steel tub that won’t rust. The 1/5 cubic foot capacity can hold up to 5.5 pounds of laundry. Since it is front loading, it fits almost anywhere and is easy to load and unload. The front door has a see-through window. The lint filter is easy to access and clean.
The compact dryer can stand alone or be mounted on a wall. Assembly is fairly simple and requires no special tools.
The dryer has three 3 temperature settings and an anti-wrinkle option. There are also four timer options.
The Magic Chef Portable Dryer comes with a 1-year warranty. It works off 120-volt (standard household current) and draws 15-amps. This means you may not be able to run your compact dryer and another item off the same breaker. Homes generally come with 15- and 20-amp circuits, so make sure you are using the correct plug.
If you are worried about how much electricity a dryer uses per load, don’t be. Experts estimate that a standard dryer costs about 45 cents a load. Compact electric dryers probably use less.
