Conclusion: 

Effective and quick cycles combined with sleek and good-looking design makes this dryer an ideal appliance for every family. The price isn’t outrageous – especially if we consider that the Normal Cycle took 46 minutes. Let’s not forget that the closing mechanism is the biggest drawback to this dryer. If you’re looking for a dryer that looks sleek and is quick, then this Electrolux dryer may be for you.
