Danby Premiere DDR070BDWDB 70-Pint Dehumidifier Review

Danby Premiere DDR070BDWDB 70-Pint Dehumidifier

Danby Premiere DDR070BDWDB 70-Pint Dehumidifier is portable, highlights a surface that is smooth and compact along with “Smart Dehumidifying” technology for easier-than-ever moisture control. Dehumidifier removes 70 pints of moisture and can handle 1200 square feet large spaces or even more if the room is not very humid.

Design and Size

Danby Premiere DDR070BDWDB has a compact design with controls panel positioned on the top of the unit. Control panel is easily reachable and understandable. The water bucket is installed at the bottom of the unit and it is easily removable from the front. The water bucket has a water level window. The dehumidifier has casters and carrying handles. That makes very easy to carry this 45 pounds heavy unit from space to space. At the back of the unit are air filter, continuous drain hose outlet (unfortunately drain hose isn’t included), and power cord buckle. Air outlet grill is positioned on one side of the dehumidifier.


  • Height: 24.5 inches / 62 cm
  • Width: 16 inches / 40.5 cm
  • Depth: 12 inches / 30.5 cm


Danby Premiere DDR070BDWDB is equipped with a lot of features.

Available 3 draining options – manual, gravity and condensate pump.

  • Manual draining is draining using a built-in bucket. The bucket is quite small for such a powerful moisture removal so you will have to empty it quite often.
  • Gravity Draining works with attached drain hose (as mentioned before – not included) or garden hose.
  • Condensate Pump. The dehumidifier doesn’t have internal condensate pump but you can add an external pump which costs around $60. Another option is to buy other Danby model – DDR070BDPWDB 70-Pint Dehumidifier with Pump. It has same functions as this model but arrives whole with a built-in condensate pump and costs only $30 more. Check the latest price here.

Noise level

The dehumidifier has a quiet operation. At its highest fan speed, the Danby 70-Pint unit has a sound level of 50 decibels, similar to sounds in a normal home.

Maintenance and upkeep

The dehumidifier doesn’t require much maintenance. If using manual draining you will have to remove water from the bucket. After 250 hours of work clean filter.

Also rarely you will have to clean the grill and case and bucket. That’s it. Not much to do.

My name is Ryan. I have had a hard time dealing with my allergies. Happily, I found that an air purifier was effective to ease my allergy symptoms. I spent a lot of time researching the best air purifier. I know how hard it can be to find the suitable one.

During the reading period, I also read a lot about humidifiers and dehumidifiers. I learned the mechanisms behind the technologies as well as the manufacturers and organizations within the industry.

I now feel convinced that I have built a guide that shows you all you need to know about air purifiers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers. So I came up with the idea of creating this website.
