No, due to the unique design, there is hardly any difference. With
the lower spin speed, it also uses much less electricity (only 136
watts, whereas most spin dryers use several hundred).
Conventional spin dryers have a lever that must be turned each time
to turn the machine on and off. This new design eliminates the need for a
lever, you close the lid and it automatically turns on. To
turn it off, you gently pull the latch and the lid automatically opens.
The handle is built into the top of the unit, so you can fold it down
when not in use. It's much more convenient than the side handles on
conventional spin dryer models, plus it extends up from the unit so you
don't have to bend down as much when moving it.
