Hi, this is Alan Hilsabeck, Junior, registered interior designer and certified master kitchen and bath designer of Hilsabeck Design Associates. Today, I am here at the Sub-Zero and Wolf showroom, just outside of Dallas. Since the introduction of stainless steel into the washer and dryer market, consumers have asked, which is better? Today, I'm going to compare the differences between stainless steel and white drum dryers. First, let's look at the characteristics of a stainless steel drum dryer. Stainless steel is a complete product, both the surface and the entire body of the drum is made from stainless steel. The major advantage of this, is that the drum won't rust, stain or chip. It will remain smooth and it won't snag your clothes. Now, for a white drum or a coated drum dryer, here are the characteristics. This type of drum is either made from a porcelain coated or a powder coated steel material. This coating is subject to chipping, cracking or staining. This can lead to potential snags in your clothes. Stainless steel drum dryers are more expensive and are not available in basic dryer models. While coated drum dryers maybe more economical, they're less durable. But will serve the purpose equally of drying your clothes. So, until next time, this is your design professional, Alan Hilsabeck, Junior of Hilsabeck Design Associates, coming to you from the Sub-Zero and Wolf showroom, in Dallas. Have a great day.
