What every best Dehumidifiers has:
- Large capacity.
- Ample collection container.
- Multiple fan speeds.
The 70-Pint Frigidaire FAD704DWD dehumidifier is a top choice among both experts and users. It's got a large capacity container, which means it has to be emptied less often than some competing models, as well as a convenient hose connection for those who want to send the collected water directly down a drain. Reviewers agree that it is well built and generally reliable. It's also a quiet worker, though some models are a touch quieter still. See our full review »
The Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 is an excellent alternative to the Frigidaire FAD704DWD, and might be an even better choice in some settings. That's because it's a tad quieter than our Best Reviewed pick, yet every bit as effective in removing moisture from the air. However, its 20 percent smaller collection bucket means more frequent emptying. It's a newer model than the FAD704DWD, but it's been around long enough now to have amassed a great track record of its own.Buy for $289.99
If you are looking for a top performing dehumidifier at an appealing price, look no further than the Keystone KSTAD70B. Performance compares well to the best 70-pint dehumidifiers, as does energy efficiency. Some experts fret a little about build quality, but this Keystone has put together a good track record with users. Value is a big plus, but you'll sacrifice a little in convenience with the KSTAD70B's smaller collection bucket, and continuous draining requires installing a finicky hose adapter.Buy for $269.92
For small spaces with poor ventilation, such as bathrooms, closets and cabinets, the Eva-Dry Renewable E-333 Wireless Mini Dehumidifier can't be beat. It absorbs up to six ounces of water using crystallized silicon and requires no batteries or electricity to operate, which also means it's completely silent while in use. The Eva-Dry can be recharged as often as necessary, but allow some time for the recharging process. See our full review »Buy for $14.97
With its compact size and robust moisture-removing capacity, the Santa Fe Advance2 is an ideal humidifier for unfinished crawlspaces and basements.

There's no bucket to deal with, but you'll need a nearby drain or an optional pump to get rid of the condensate. See our full review »
