Well, video explains how it works, but doesn't look so convenient to me!

What do you think?

seems a little pointless, cold air can only refresh garments not dry them.
it seems compleetly useless unless you use it to refresh hoodies or jackets

I CANNOT see the point of this...

I initially thought it was a washer dryer, but it's a washer with a fan. Somehow I don't think it'l be effective, as it is simply circulating cold air to dry clothes, as well as it taking 16 hours. I think if we needed a machine to dry clothes, we'd need it quicker than that! haha!

Its similar to the White Knight's 8 hour A rated dryer cycle, but it is extremely pointless in that I'd rather use a washing line to dry the clothes as it would be quicker than 8 hours, and having a dryer means a convenience of having clothes dry in an hour or less. Same thing with this machine, we need clothes dry quicker than that! The machine also boasts of steam, if they used that to dry clothes instead of cold air, I could understand that.

Although I was a little impressed with the idea of airing out the machine between cycles, at least that's an idea to combat mould issues!

As the video states, a couple aspects of the point of drying a small load with FanFresh is energy savings and convenience of largely loading-and-forgetting if the items aren't needed immediately.  Cold air surely can dry clothes.  Drying is simply evaporation of moisture.  Cold, or non-heated, air just takes longer.  I don't have an outdoor clothesline, so I've hung items for drying inside the house in my spare bedrooms and bathrooms.  An item washed separately that bleeds rather than running it through the dryer.  Items that may shrink if heat-dried.  For a while to avoid ironing, I'd spin my cotton oxford shirts at the lowest speed, place them on hangers to dry inside in the spare room, sometimes with ceiling fans running.  They'd be dried by the next evening.
