It’s not hard to understand what the benefits of using the best boot dryers are. But you might be surprised to find out how many different options there are out there. We researched some of the top-selling products and well-known brands to put together this boot dryer review. It’s a great way to make sure you’re making the right choice. First, let’s look at some of the key features you need to know about before you shop.
Shoe Capacity: The number we put here is how many shoes can fit on each one. Not how many pairs. Keep in mind that these dryers are also effective at drying hats, gloves, and even socks if you need to!
Dry Time: This was a tricky one to determine because, ultimately, it depends how saturated the boots are that you’re drying. Remember that the number we gave you is an estimate and it may take more time in certain situations.
Quiet: None of these dryers are loud exactly but some are definitely quieter than others. They sound kind of like a small fan running. If that’s going to bother you, look for one that’s really quiet.
Type: There are 2 types. The first is a rack. Your boots go upside down onto arm extensions. The other option is an insert that you put right in your shoe. These can be hard, oblong shapes or even just a simple hose.
Eliminates Odor: All of these products reduce odor. Here’s why: bacteria and the other things that like to cause odors thrive in warm, wet environments. If your boots are dry, they won’t want to be there.
Warranty: The warranties range with these quite a bit. In fact, they run anywhere from 90 days to a lifetime. Make sure you know what is covered and what isn’t no matter what dryer you end up choosing.
