I got the chance to review this product. It replaced my older model of the AEG 7th series dryer which I purchased in October 2015. I was very happy with the older model, it was my first dryer and it amazed me by efficiency, ease of use and the speed of drying.
Nevertheless, this new model is even better! It is hard to believe how wonderful my clothes, towels and bed linen feels and looks after being dried in this machine. The bed linen looks like ironed, the towels are extremely soft and the clothes don't have any static electricity as it used to have after the use of the older model. The drying time is very good, comparable with the older model. The filter is easy to clean and the condenser cleaning with the vacuum cleaner is much more efficient than with the older model, where I used to have to use ear cleaning buds to get all the dust out properly. The programmes are all very usable, I tried all of them, very impressed with the bed linen program as well as with the duvet program, it had no problem with drying our super king size duck dawn duvet and I love the way my dawn coat and jacket looks after using it. Another very useful feature is the refresh program, which is something I missed in my previous tumble dryer. I use it for refreshing clothes that was stored for long time, clothes that got in contact with smoke etc. I did find that although the jeans program is missing and I used to love it in my old tumble dryer, I don’t need it as the different thickness of clothes is not a problem for this dryer on any program, everything comes out dry, throw together shirts and towels with no problem, as well as jeans.
Overall, this dryer is a fantastic product and I would recommend it to anyone, it is easy to use, very efficient, speedy and very good looking. Only thing I was disappointed with is that there is no internal light despite it being stated as a feature on the AEG site. Only the 8th series has this feature. I do have my tumble dryer in a dark room without window and it would have been useful to have it.
