A drying cabinet
A drying cabinet is an electronic machine designed to expedite the drying of items - usually clothing - that are unsuitable for a traditional clothes dryer. Such items may include delicate clothing designated as "hang dry, "dry flat", or "do not tumble dry" on their wash instructions, as well as items such as comforters, boots, and coats.

History

Since the 1980s, drying cabinets have been common in European laundromats, especially in the Swedishmarker Tvättstuga - a laundry room in Swedish housing cooperatives. With the large size of the drying cabinets and relatively small size of European homes, drying cabinets have been almost exclusively found in self-service laundry facilities.

History in the U.S.

With the steadily increasing size of Americanmarker homes over the past decades, the laundry room has increased in size and functionality as well. To meet the increasing demand for luxury appliances in the US residential market, a handful of home appliance manufacturers (including Asko and Staber) have begun to supply drying cabinets for the home within the last few years. A typical residential drying cabinet is approximately the size of a narrow refrigerator, and is used to supplement traditional tumble dryers.
