Summary: First off I would like to say that I had to return this once because when I turned it on the heat element went on but the drum would not turn. Then it would start to make a really loud whirring noise. I called the company and they said to just return it. I then received it and IT DID THE SAME THING! Furious I called the company and they sent a tech out and found that a part that was attached to the drum came undone during shipping because of improper handling.
Summary: This is a well-executed product. It pretty much nails its use case, with no drawbacks, other than those inherent to the limitations of any such product in its class (i.e., its small size). It dries very well. In "auto" mode it will dry your clothes until it detects that they are no longer wet, and then it continues blowing unheated air until time runs out. If the unit is loaded with clothes that all dry at a similar rate, the results are very good.
Summary: I would give this at least 4 stars if not for the daunting, potentially unsafe, darn near impossible-to-use filter. Filters should be VERY easy to remove, clean and replace. Not this one. I've decided that a mad engineer had his/her day of revenge when s(he) designed this madning part. I had to use a screw driver to get it popped off the back of the drum.
Buyer Beware of company with horrible customer service
1 October 2014
Summary: This review pertains to Avanti customer service and not the actual product listed. Please be aware this company has a terrible BBB (Better Business Bureau) reputation and will likely not assist you with problems should you encounter them. I have made several calls to this company in an effort to fix problems with my device and have been treated with complete disregard, often being placed on indefinite hold.
Summary: Great for apartments and small families! I purchased in middle of 2013, and has been going strong for more than 1 year and counting! Simple design does the job. What more that you need besides a door, tumbler and heat timer, right? Exhausting can be performed in a number of ways. I suggest getting an indoor filter than openning a window to vent the room.

Summary: This dryer is really huge. When i wash my clothes i can put everything on it and there is still big space for more. It saves so much time and effort for me. This is really great. I told my mom about it and she bought one for her too. And she loves it so much.
