Danby DDR2510E Dehumidifier

The Danby DDR2510E is the lowest capacity model in the range and also the quietest. Despite its lower moisture extraction capacity it comes with the full range of features included in the larger models and is ideal for use in smaller areas where its compact dimensions and low noise output may be appreciated. Any one who is looking for a reliable, effective yet quiet dehumidifier may wish to add this model to their short list.

Features include an adjustable humidistat to control relative humidity to the level you prefer, continuous drainage to avoid emptying buckets, auto-restart to switch the unit back on following a power outage and soft touch electronic controls for ease of use.

User reviews are positive and we are pleased to recommend this model as an ideal choice for controlling humidity in smaller areas.


The unit is portable and a carrying handle makes its 35lb weight easy to lift. Casters are also supplied for ease of movement across a floor. This model is ideal for homes where floor space is restricted as its compact size will allow it to fit into small spaces comfortably.

The Danby DDR2510E incorporates an adjustable humidistat with which the level of relative humidity (RH) which suits you and your home may be programmed. The humidistat may be set at any level of RH within the range of 35% to 80%.

This model includes an auto-defrost feature. This allows the unit to operate safely in temperatures as low as 41°F.

The Danby DDR2510E is designed for continuous drainage. This feature is seldom used with units of this size but you may find it useful.

The appliance is operated by means of soft touch electronic controls which users report are easy to use and understand. An auto-restart feature is included which switches the unit back on after a power outage at the default settings (60% RH, low fan speed). It does not preserve the settings you programmed prior to the power outage.

There is a choice of two fan speeds so you may choose between faster moisture extraction (high) or reduced noise (low).
