    Default Steam dryer

    Does anyone have a steam dryer? I am trying to figure out if it is a great feature or just a gimmick/something else to break...

    I have one. It's the Maytag Bravos version. Unless I'm accidentally using it without intending to, I don't know if I've ever used in a year +. I use a "refresh" cycle if the clothes have been sitting in there overnight (or longer ) but I don't know if that has steam or not...hmmm.

    So basically, I'm no help!

    We looked at it but didn't end up buying it. I asked the Sears sales guy if there was a difference between the steam dryer and putting a damp towel (or anything really) into the dryer to get rid of wrinkles. FWIW, he said now.

    Thank you both. I was looking at the Maytag Bravos, but I will get a lower end model for now. DH will be happy

    Never knew about the damp towel trick. May have to try that.

    We have the Maytag Neptune Drying Center. It's fantastic and steams DH's uniform quickly and effciently.

    i have the lg steam dryer and ive used it 2 times in the last 2 years. i didnt care for it at all. after the cycle my sweater still felt damp and i had to do a normal dry cycle. if i could go back i would skip that option without blinking twice.
    My favorite things right now are my Uppababy G-Lite, B-Ready, Puddle Jumper,

    I have the LG one too. I tried it once. Didn't look like it did anything.

    We have a LG steam dryer and DH loves it. He uses it all the time for his work items.

    I have the Bravos, and I don't think it does a darn thing either. I was bummed, b/c it was the main reason I bought that set. I will say that the "wrinkle control" option is awesome though!
