I never knew there was such a thing but had to get it this past winter because of all the snow we got in Denver. A great tool to have at home.
I was starting to look at products for the impending Colorado snowstorms since we are getting to that time of the year! This would be a nice gadget to have after cleaning the cars and shoveling the driveway.
If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you should have a boot/shoe dryer. This one works well for my family, but it's fairly basic technology. You could even DIY one if you wanted, but these things aren't that expensive. Just stop reading this review and buy one if you live in a wet climate and don't have one.
