There’s no mistake of TOSOT 70 pint dehumidifier even from far. At 14.8 x 24 x 11.4 in and 51.8 lb weight, it is gigantic and will not fit into a small room well. The front wave ventilation is highly functional although some would prefer a more simplistic approach. The front drain bucket with a water indicator is located at the usual spot. Removing it is easy thanks to the swivel handle and spill-resistant baffles. The washable filter is tuck inside the machine that can be slide out after you have taken out the bucket. Other notable features include 4 casters, outlet, and a top control panel. The premium model comes with a built-in pump but the back drainage outlet is good enough to support a standard garden hose.

Tosot 70 Pint Dehumidifier Control Panel

Let’s move to the control panel. To the most left, the power button will indicator light turn on or off the machine. Next to it is the filter button that resets the filter timer and indicator light (after 250 hours of runtime). Press the button after you have washed the filter. Right at the center below the display screen, there are two humidity buttons (-/+) that will add or minus humidity by 5% per click. You can set the relative humidity level between 35%-80%. You can also activate nonstop mode by repeatedly pressing the – button until the screen shows NS and the nonstop indicator light lit. The fan speed button will cycle between high, medium, and low with the indicator showing the mode you’re in. Timer button can either turn on or off the dehumidifier. On press, it will cycle between 2 or hours. You can activate pump mode by connecting a drain hose to the back outlet, then press and hold the pump button for 3 seconds. Other passive features include alarm sound that beeps for 10 seconds when the bucket is full or missing for more than 3 minutes. A full indicator light that will stay on when the bucket is full or not inserted correctly.

To recap on the specification, you have a large front reservoir, washable air filter, 24-hour timer, and drainage option. GDN70BA-A3EBA2C is the basic version while GDN45BA-A3EBA2B comes with a built-in pump. Supporting features include power outage restart that resumes the operation once power is restored, anti-frosting that prevent ice buildup, and auto shut-down after drain bucket is full.

Pints and speed

70 pint or 45 capacity per day under new DOE 2019. There's no stopping TOSOT 70 pint dehumidifier. On maximum performance, it can cover between 3000-4500 square feet of room space. Throughout our test, the moisture removing power is consistent even in very low temperatures. Perfect for winter season especially in a confined room like garage or basement. For bedroom or bathroom, you can still rely on the dehumidifier at low speed but the power output will a bit overkill. In the long run, consider placing it further to suit its capacity or get a smaller, more efficient unit.

What’s inside count

TOSOT 70-pint dehumidifier refrigeration technology works like an air conditioner or vacuum cleaner. It sucks air in, passes through a filter, and blows hot air out. When the moist air is pulled into the freezing cold pipes, the water will be separated from the air and slowly drip down to a bucket. If continuous drainage mode is used, the water will drip down to a floor drain instead. Now the moistureless air will be reheated and blow out from top outlet back to the room. The cycle will repeat itself until a humidity level is reached.

Keep it down

Moving on to the speed of sound. Out of the 3 fan speeds, expect subtle noise at low speed, audible noise at mid speed, and very loud noise at high speed. For night use, we will suggest using it in a low setting that will not disturb your sleep. Don't worry about any power shortage as TOSOT 70 pint dehumidifier will cover this part well. On the contrary, power consumption is pretty decent for an Energy Star 70-pint unit. If you need the capacity and plan to use it repeatedly, it will not fail you.

At what cost

Let's talk about price. Tosot 70 Pint is slightly cheaper than its rival at around 250 without pump (GDN70BA-A3EBA2C). Tosot 70 pint dehumidifier with pump (GDN45BA-A3EBA2B) is about 50 premium more. Is it worth the upgrade, not for us as you could easily hook it with an external pump that will end up with the same result. In any case, both variants will get you all the safety features and functions to fiddle around with.
There are limited places you can purchase Tosot 70 pints dehumidifier so Amazon is the best place to go. You will enjoy a better deal, extended warranty (addon), free shipping (prime), and standard 30 days return policy. Some retailers like Best Buy, Walmart or Costco may carry the brand but that would highly depend on the store availability. Retailers may not have the best deal, but you can physically view the dehumidifier if they do carry it. Tosot's official website is out of the picture for now.

Other variants

Tosot 30 Pint GDN30AZ-A3EBA2C Dehumidifier

Tosot 30 Pint

Around 80-100 bucks cheaper but at only 30 pints moisture capturing capacity. If you need a smaller unit that will still have the features of its bigger brother. This will do well.
Tosot 50 Pint GDN50BA-A3EBA2B Dehumidifier

Tosot 50 Pint

Only slightly cheaper, smaller, and lighter thus it may not seems like a great option when placed side by side with the 70-pint model.
