Top Ten Reviews rates an LG steam dryer 8.9 out of a possible 10. Among its best features is its fast drying time, and the review site notes the steam dryer has many features not commonly seen in other dryers in the same price range. The dryer's aluminized alloy steel drum is praised for its ability to reflect heat and reduce energy consumption.
Good Housekeeping lauds one dryer for using the least amount of energy to get clothes dry and wrinkle-free. The steam dryer scores well due to its three-hour tumble dry time, manual steam feeder and safety features that detect when there is a reduction of airflow.
Best Buy reviews state that LG steam dryers dry clothes fast in one cycle. The drying sensor is praised in several reviews for its ability to completely dry the clothes the first time. While most Best Buy reviews laud the quiet operation of these dryers, a few reviews mention that the dryers can make a very loud squealing sound when operating.
