Bert, South Africa. 15 November 2016

Excellent product, works as advertised. Quite pricey, so it will take a very long time for it to pay for itself in electric power savings, but it saves a lot of time as a bonus and is friendlier on the environment. Clothes are dry in a fraction of the time afterwards on the line (even inside) or in the tumble dryer (thereby saving electric power costs). This is fantastic for cold/wet weather, especially if you only have a cheap tumble dryer that emits hot humid air (doesn't have a water condenser), which can quickly become problematic in an enclosed space. I've had mine 6 months, and I'm still amazed how much water comes out even after the washing machine's spin cycle.

I give it 4-out-of-5 stars, but only because of the high price - the product itself is fantastic.

ENGELA, South Africa. 21 August 2017

It is very easy to setup.
Timer would have been very useful.
Works as described. Very handy, cost efficient, saves energy and shortens clothes dry time.

Louis, South Africa. 5 October 2017

Excellent product!!

Takes a minimum of space, easy to operate and works like a champion.

Money well spent.

Shaun, South Africa. 20 October 2016

Awesome machine

Cindy, South Africa. 13 May 2016

I bought it to dry our clothes more before I put it on the line and this 6.5kg gizmo does the trick amply. Out of one load I drained more than 1 liter of water! I just wish this machine had a timer setting, though I understand that different items have various liquid content after washing, and standing there for 2-4 mins watching water pour out of the washing isn't too bad. Also I wish there was a way to connect the water outflow to a drain. A liter volume receptacle is not big enough sometimes. It is also a tad pricey, but it delivers amply on its claims and I reckon it will help me greatly drying clothes during winter with the shorter days. I can now even dry clothes indoors if I have to.

Trevor, South Africa. 22 November 2017

Excellent product.

Dirk, South Africa. 27 June 2016

This is our second Spindel, the first one is the smaller 4.5Kg one and it still works, we just bought the bigger one as it saves so much time because it takes a bigger load...THIS THING IS AWESOME!!!

Stephen, South Africa. 10 June 2016

Great product. My wife is very happy with her new investment. If I had any comments, a auto timer would be great.

Felix, South Africa. 19 August 2017

Works very well. I don't find it hard to pack as mentioned. Three things would make it absolutely great, bigger drum, timer and a receptacle to catch the water. I am very happy with my purchase.

R, South Africa. 3 September 2015

It will save you time, effort & money in the long run. A definite must buy!

Carolyn, South Africa. 30 March 2015

Without a doubt one of our best purchases ever. 250ml of water came out of one bath sheet. Living in a flat this is going to be a huge asset in winter, where drying space is minimal and washing takes forever to dry otherwise.

Carol, South Africa. 1 June 2015

A wonderful appliance that does exactly what it says. The amount of water that still comes out of a load after a spin in the washing machine is amazing. This is money well spent! Ready to now face the Cape Town winter!!

Jonathan P, South Africa. 11 January 2015

Got this to help with fast drying all the kids cloths, bedsheets, etc.
To be honest. I was pleasantly surprised at how much additional water is spun out.
30min on the line and it is completely dry vs a couple hours.

Martin, South Africa. 23 June 2015

This little device has really helped with the laundry situation in my flat in Cape Town winters. At least 500ml extra water extracted per load. Machine is quieter than a tumble drier and really does only take 2-3 minutes. Our clothes and bedding now dry within one day tops. The unit is also very small and can fit in even the smallest flat.

I can recommend this product to anybody who is weary of a tumble dryer or even those who want to quarter their dryer cycles. Great product.

Jacques, South Africa. 16 May 2017

Extremely satisfied! First product I bought that holds true to all its advertisement claims. Spindle extracts another 200ml of water per towel after machine wash and spin. Great for air drying. Cut down tumble dryer time by 70%. An automatic timer with auto shutoff would be an improvement on the current design.

Nick, South Africa. 19 August 2016

Really happy with this, I recommend it to anyone. Saves a ton of electricity and space.

Tonia, South Africa. 5 June 2017

A must for every household with loads of laundry and especially for Capetonians during those wet winter months. Makes washing in winter doable and helps a great deal with removing water from hand washed items. The ONLY downside for me is that I keep on forgetting to put a container under the spout however once the Spindle starts up, it's a reminder and I find myself dashing for a container. Best set up and left in one place with a container under the spout to avoid this small drawback.

Simone, South Africa. 12 April 2016

Great product that does exactly what it advertised to do. I get at least 500ml of water out after 1 load and if hung inside the house (we live in a flat), it'll be dry by the next morning. My unit has, however, been replaced after only 6 months even though I made sure to pack the clothes properly to avoid the banging noise it makes if you pack it incorrectly.

Helen, South Africa. 20 May 2017

The Spindel works incredibly well! Something to remember though is to back clothes well to prevent a weight imbalance which will cause the machine to wobble, and to prevent delicates from stretching out.

Mathapelo, South Africa. 8 June 2015

Not exactly what I expected. Nothing like normal tumble dryer as clothes are not completely dry

Justin, South Africa. 26 September 2016

Great product - does what the videos say it does. I was surprised at how stable it is when spinning.

michael, South Africa. 29 October 2015

Does exactly as described, removes up to a liter or more water from a load of washing. However!!! You need a degree to pack the washing correctly so that it can spin properly. I try really hard but often have to repack 2-3 times before it spins without that grinding noise, which the manual even warns about. So this unit is flawed in that regard. Very frustrating. But once it works it works well.

Lucienne, South Africa. 14 February 2016

Extremely happy with this spinner. Good to spin your laundry after handwash. It spin double the speed from a normal washingmachine, so when it comes out it hardly need time on the line to dry.

Hermanus, South Africa. 13 May 2016

very quick delivery, quicker than the original time given.

Willem, South Africa. 21 June 2017

Does exactly what it advertises, and what other reviewers say it does. It would have been EVEN BETTER if it had an auto-shutoff at 5 minutes, since the manual clearly states it should never be run for that long, due to danger of overheating. I guess that would have increased the price somewhat.

Devin, South Africa. 24 April 2016

Great product!

Craig, South Africa. 6 July 2016

Fantastic for drying clothes in winter. Over 1litre of extra water is drawn out of washing instead of needing to evaporate out speeding up drying time.

Andrew, South Africa. 22 December 2016

Great machine - really efficient and cuts drying time down substantially.

Heather, South Africa. 19 May 2017

I have only used the Spindel once since I received it late last week and that was enough to impress me! One full load of washing fits into the Spindel, and I would guess that close on 1 litre of water was expelled from a 3 - 4-minute spin. This is perfect for me as I have a small flat (no space for a tumble dryer), and have to hand my washing up to dry in my lounge as I don't trust hanging my washing out on the shared complex lines. The Spindel is also small enough to fit in the bottom of my cupboard. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has space constraints.

Dawn, South Africa. 28 August 2017

Very quiet, really does help with getting that extra water out of clothes. My washing dries on the line in no time

Mary, South Africa. 29 August 2016

I'm amazed at how much water this Spindel is able to get out of my laundry AFTER it's been through the washing machine's spun cycle. My washing dries much faster now. I also like that this machine is compact and lightweight, so it's easy to move and it doesn't take up a lot of space in my flat.

taariq, South Africa. 6 June 2016

Great product, does what it claims on the tin, only wish there was a bigger model which can process more clothing.

Nic, South Africa. 9 July 2017

This will save a huge amount of electricity ! Clothes come out almost dry.

Ilse, South Africa. 13 September 2017

Excellent!! Best buy ever!

Christina, South Africa. 26 September 2017

This thing is amazing. I don't know what people are complaining about the price for; compare it to a regular tumble dryer which uses crazy amounts of electricity and costs a lot more. It takes two minutes to remove almost all the moisture from my clothes and it's surprising to see how much detergent and water comes out of my laundry every single time I put it in the Spindle. I kept an eye on my electricity meter while rinsing a load of washing in my Spindle, and it didn't even use half a unit of electricity; I was pretty astounded. This is a worthwhile investment for anyone who struggles to get laundry dry.

anat, South Africa. 21 April 2015

Seriously cool. I heard about it but would never have bought it unless it came on sale. However I am happy I did. This is not unlike a preventative cure. You spend some money and in the long term it pay for itself. Highly recommended (on sale or not)

Nicholas, South Africa. 22 June 2016

Really Great product. 3 Minute timer would be very helpful.

Adri, South Africa. 27 December 2016

It works fine, just disappointed that it doesn't have a timer !

Ryno, South Africa. 29 August 2016

Nice product... Works well.

Zaheer, South Africa. 26 February 2017

Absolutely brilliant product.
My wife was skeptical at first but she loves it now.
Much more efficient than a tumble dryer.
Clothes can even be hanged indoors to dry completely.

Michelle, South Africa. 24 October 2014

Love it! It’s so compact, but it takes my whole washing machine load. Couldn’t believe the half a litre of soapy water that was removed in just a few minutes! Items came out almost dry. Highly recommend this!

Thys, South Africa. 17 May 2017

Excellent buy works very well

Michelle, South Africa. 18 June 2016

Great product

Candice, South Africa. 23 September 2016

The spindle is a great little machine. Does exactly what it says it does. Easy to set up, easy to pack away. The amount of water it takes out of my washing is insane (all my indoor plants are benefiting from it too!) My washing dries in half the time - a life saver in winter.

Bernice, South Africa. 17 July 2015

Such a brilliant product!! I would recommend it to everyone. Ideal for winter. It is so surprising how much soapy water comes out after a normal wash and spin cycle in the machine. Loooovvveee this!! They could maybe add a detachable bowl to it to make like easy. Overall very happy!!!

Lara Steyn, South Africa. 11 June 2017

This product is great as long as I don't have to use it. It gets out a load more water which is especially useful when trying to naturally dry clothes in winter. The problem with it is the it doesn't automatically stop, you have to wait the 3 minutes (?) for it to run & switch it off otherwise it may either burn out or damage your clothes (I don't recall the exact warning). You also need to use a separate container (not supplied) to collect the water as its cycled out of your clothes.
Great product if you don't want to spend the money on a tumble dryer but a bit cumbersome to use.

Cheryl, South Africa. 19 October 2017

So pleased I bought this! My washing machine has never been great at removing all of the water, so everything takes ages to dry - especially on rainy days! The Spindel works way better than I expected it to. Really good investment.

Elizabeth, South Africa. 28 June 2017

WOW - this is such a great product am amazed at how quickly my laundry dries even in this damp Cape Town Winter! As a couple of other reviewers have mentioned, it would be great if it had a time but to be honest easy to work around

HF, South Africa. 2 February 2015

Money well spent
Tumble dryer thinks it's on holiday

Greg, South Africa. 11 February 2016

Excellent product. It does what it ways it'll do. I bought it on special so it was definitely worth it.

shirley, South Africa. 5 July 2016

Delighted with this little appliance. Ideal for Cape Town winters. Using the tumble dryer for shorter periods. Would highly recommend.

mike, South Africa. 20 February 2017

Works exceptionally well; had it for a while now.
Can also confirm Spindel as a company has excellent after sales service in SA.

Nivash, South Africa. 29 August 2015

All the good reviews are true.

Ann, South Africa. 4 February 2017

This product has lived up to the reviews I have read. This certainly reduces the drying time and the ironing of washing has been reduced. Initially I thought this would be used only on raining days, but it is used with every load of washing.

Chriato, South Africa. 23 April 2015

Great dryer it extracted over a litre of water from one blanket after it came out of a normal spinning cycle of my front loader. Was virtually dry after that. Highly recommended

Lizette, South Africa. 20 April 2017

Product does exactly what it says. Works well.
Pity it does not have a timer
Definitely worth the money spent

Maureen, South Africa. 18 October 2015

Although this is quite an ingenius device and it does exactly what it is advertised to do, one can't help wonder why this feature is not built into a regular washing machine. That said and done it literally extracts water from the water. Really worthwhile if you have a large family and lots of washing to do. Can take hours away from the process.

Lise, South Africa. 29 August 2016

My husband loves the spindle. And I love that my clothes are dry more quickly. Win win. As usual a swift delivery from Takealot!

Jim, South Africa. 14 June 2016

It is unbelievable how much water comes out of the clothes when they come out of the washing machine after spinning. It only takes a few minutes and saves us a fortune on the electricity for the tumble dryer, great product from Spindel.

Genevieve, South Africa. 22 November 2016

What a significant difference this makes to an average washday!

Shane, South Africa. 16 May 2016

Potent little machine. Amazing how much water it still extracts after the washing has been through the "Spin" cycle on our machine. Thanks!!

Lauren, South Africa. 23 May 2016

Best choice i could've ever made

WERNER, South Africa. 12 May 2016

Works very nice.
Can't believe the amount of water that comes out after the cloths come out of the spin cycle.

Shona, South Africa. 17 July 2017

An excellent product. Our clothing dried quicker than ever before - in the midst of a severe cold snap in East London. Will definitely recommend, especially if you live in a place that is not small enough to have clothes horses/rails standing around for days on end.

nelia, South Africa. 28 September 2016

Just love it! Works exactly like advertised. Wished there was a bigger unit as well. Very quiet and quick and very efficient!! wonderful product!!

Rugaya, South Africa. 3 January 2016

Can't believe how much water come out of a load of washing. Drying times are now a fraction of what it used to be. This little machine is going to be worth it's weight in gold in our very wet Cape Town winter!

Magirly, South Africa. 6 May 2016

Thank you for fast delivery. The spindle drys clothes very fast and it spins quietly

Glenn, South Africa. 21 August 2017

A lot more compact than I was expecting but it certainly does what they say it does and super quiet as well.
The only drawback is that one cannot attach a hose to the drainage outlet and getting a big enough bowl under the recess is problematic. I have placed the unit on a crate so that I can use a bucket to collect the water coming from the unit.

Craig, South Africa. 27 July 2017

The Spindel has made doing washing so much easier. It spins 1-2l of water out of the clothes, allowing them to dry quicker

Nadia, South Africa. 9 August 2017

Best purchase ever. No need to use my tumble dryer. Towels dry over night.

Regina, South Africa. 7 July 2015

Happy with product and the service given by Takealot

Lucie, South Africa. 6 June 2016

A brilliant companion to winter laundry day. With no tumble dryer, we struggle to dry clothes in less than 3 days or more - now this handy little tool gets things dry in half the time. A GREAT investment for winter chores. Shirts spun for 4 minutes are iron-ready and even a small load sheds 500ml of water in 3 minutes. Quite a small compartment though so recommend getting this larger 6.5kg size for just R200 more. Highly recommended.

Anina, South Africa. 18 April 2017

Does what it says it does. Lots of water still coming from the already washing machine spin bundles. Timer would have been nice but 3 minutes is not a train smash. Be careful not to turn the knob while still in slight spin. Don't force the knob either.
Excellent for busy working moms to dry washing quicker.

Hennau, South Africa. 26 June 2015

Great product. Worth every cent.

Jayne Ann, South Africa. 9 June 2017

Love this Spindel. Thanx to Vanilla Blonde for recommendation as I went and ordered online and it works like a charm. The drying time is actually no time at all. In these cold winter months it helps so much. You don't have to wait for a few days for things to dry. Amazing how much water actually comes out as well. Good buy !!!!

Tinus, South Africa. 27 February 2016

Works very well and save plenty of washing machine spin time. Amazing.

Zorina Zorina, South Africa. 4 April 2016

excellent buy and value for money. clothes was dry within half an hour outside after using the spindle. definitely worth the spend!

Felix, South Africa. 21 July 2015

Spindel saves time and energy for any laundry application small or large.
Great product, simple to use.

jacques, South Africa. 18 July 2016

the best thing ever

Maria, South Africa. 18 September 2017

Really happy!!

Fadlah, South Africa. 9 May 2016

I was hesitant to buy the product as it seemed very plastic. After much research and several inquiries with the manufacturer and retailers, I took the chance and ordered through Takealot (cheapest btw!). I cannot praise this little dryer enough! Perfect for getting water out of hand washed items and a further spin cycle after the washing machine. Amazed at how much water is still in the clothing. Clothes need minimal drying time afterwards. Only downside is that I wish it were bigger to hold a duvet but otherwise, I'm still very happy. An asset to your home- would highly recommend!

Hugo, South Africa. 12 May 2017

Very simple design. Decent quality. Just the few things to take not of when loading it to prevent it from wobbling (unbalanced) or having clothes creep over the top and snagging the drum. Spinning as fast as it does, you don't want it locking up and smashing itself to pieces. Very simple really to prevent, so a minor concern to me.

Overall I'm INCREDIBLY happy with it. Spin items at night and 90% will be dry come morning. Only jeans or heavier items might need you to put a fan on it perhaps. If you're considering this one, buy it!

Kara, South Africa. 23 September 2016

Absolutely great product! We do not have space for a tumble dryer and during the winter, our clothes take a considerable amount of time to dry. Tested my Spindel 6.5kg dryer yesterday and I could not believe how much extra water came out. (Our washing machine only spins at 800rpm on most cycles.) The only critique is that it does not have an internal timer. However, I don't mind timing 3 minutes on my phone. Additionally, I would recommend the 6.5kg Spindel.

Lourens, South Africa. 16 June 2016

Work excellent. Unfortunately does not remove creases as is the case with a tumble drier.

Dylan, South Africa. 12 July 2016

Great product.
It works as advertised. 100% happy

Jacqui, South Africa. 13 December 2017

Love this! 4 minutes in this machine saves an hour tumble drying and a few hours hanging on the washing line. Not sure how long it will last in our lodge with all the laundry we do daily but it is worth it!

Omega, South Africa. 1 June 2016

Great Product!

Tim, South Africa. 27 November 2017

This works perfectly. I can't believe the amount of water that came out! We actually decided to stop using the spin cycle on the washing machine (which goes on for 10 minutes!) and just use the Spindel for the drying.

Joey, South Africa. 23 October 2017

Very happy, which it was a bit bigger
