The Performance Series steam dryer conveniently connects to the existing laundry-room waterline, so there is no reservoir to fill, just on-demand steam cycles with the push of a button. Inside, a small nozzle distributes a fine mist of water throughout the heated dryer as clothes tumble. The heated air combines with mist to form steam, removing odors and rejuvenating a few items or an entire load. Also, the dryer is certified by NSF International to sanitize, removing 99.9 percent of tested harmful bacteria. This feature is perfect for sanitizing things that people prefer not to wash like pillows and teddy bears. GentleBreeze Drying System incorporates diagonal airflow to dry clothes in the same amount of time it takes to wash them, and IntelliDry sensor technology minimizes the risk of over-drying and shrinking. Maytag Performance Series dryers are priced from $1,300 to $1,680. Here is comparison chart for Performance Series dryers
