For starters, this dryer is a real looker! It's stylish and modern and comes in great colors. My washer and dryer are on the main floor in what could be called a mud room area. I used to dread not having a door or curtains to hide my old machines. Now I just want to show them off!

This Bravos XL?? High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer has more features than any other I've seen. There are more options for drying cycles than you can believe, which makes it easy to find just the right combination for whatever articles of clothing you're drying. I now safely dry items I used to never put in the dryer because I can customize temperature, spin, just about everything, even for the most delicate of fabrics.

I never thought I'd sing the praises of a lint filter but this one is like a "smart filter" or at least it's smarter than me! Sure, it's a habit to clean the lint filter every time but on those crazy days when you're trying to do 10 things at once? It reminds you by flashing a light. Genius! It also seems to get a lot more lint off my clothes without leaving those annoying little "pills" of lint on sweaters and such.

But the most amazing part? The steam feature. I still can't believe that I have a professional steam dryer right in my own home. Have a shirt that needs freshening up and hate ironing? Just toss it in the Bravos XL?? High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer and a few minutes later, it comes out perfectly refreshed and wrinkle free. Oh and if you should ever forget to unload the dryer (I never do that, of course) just hit the steam cycle and a few minutes later, they're perfectly fluffed, dry and no wrinkles to be found.

This is the best dryer I've ever owned and I can't think of a thing I'd change about it. The Bravos XL?? High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer makes a mundane chore like laundry easier and faster than ever.

I was so excited to get my new Maytag Washer - even though I spent a little beyond my means, I was thankful for the 18 month free financing through Home Depot. This washer has been a huge disappointment to me - it leaves a white residue on my clothes! I've tried less detergent, more expensive detergent, adding fabric softner, choosing the extra rinse cycle, choosing different washing options and nothing has helped. I called Maytag and got no results from them, they only suggested trying everything I had already done! Now I'm stuck with an expensive washer and dryer set that isn't even paid off yet! I also bought the matching dryer and honestly I'm not much more impressed with that! It has the moisture control on it - but my clothes are never dry when the cycle is completed - even choosing the correct cycle, example - I choose towels for towels!! Makes it hard to throw a load in and head off to work - unless you want mildrew smelling towels later! Very disappointed in this set and very disappointed in Maytag's customer service. I also don't understand how it's energy efficient - the smallest cycle on the washer is approx. an hour! It may use less water but I don't pay for my water - just my electricity!!!

We bought this dryer after previously getting the washer. We have a large family and it can accommodate our consistent drying needs. Great investment that has paid off!

Solid

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Granite High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer:

I've had this for 3 months, it is a solid performer, no complaints. It's hot if you want hot and very low heat if you need delicate. It has plenty of capacity.

Does everything I asked for.

By 

from North Las Vegas, NV, United States

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Granite High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer:

Wanted a steam dryer. My husband bought this a few months ago and love it more every time I use it. Sometimes I am in the middle of something else and can't get to the dryer at the end of the cycle and with the wrinkle prevent my clothes still come out great. I dearly love the Refresh cycle! It saves me so much time and effort (I hate to iron) when clothes get wrinkled hanging in the closet. I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture. I really love my new dryer.

      Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Granite High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer:

      The unit is nice and tall for my wife to transfer clothes from the top load washer to the dryer. The color is very classy. I've used the steam cycle once on new button down dress shirts and it got out all of the initial wrinkles in 22 min!!! The dryer has always left the clothes fresh and perfectly dry. My wife's only complaint is the knob which may be some cheaper plastic - but no worries it seems large and sturdy enough. The whole unit is solid. Definitely worth getting - hoping to get 20+ years out of it....

              You must use the machine properly. Do not mix fabrics. I experienced this first hand; you will get lent from shedding materials. It works beautifully now that I use the machine correctly!
