One weakness of compact washing machines is low washer capacity. It\u2019s uncommon for them to handle more than 6 lbs or so. The Zeny Portable Mini Twin Tub can handle double that, at 13 lbs, the highest of any compact washer on our list. It has easily become the best washing machine for small apartments dorm rooms RVs\u2014you name it. If you want to compare with another option, you should also read our review of the Drumni Can: wash small loads with just your foot to power it.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - ZENY Portable Mini Twin Tub Washing Machine Review\r\nPerfect for homes on the smaller size, mobile houses, RVs, dorm rooms, and campers, the Zeny Portable Mini Twin Tub provides a high capacity washer while sticking to a space saving design.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWe didn\u2019t think any other washer would beat out the Giantex Portable Mini Compact Twin Tub, but the Zeny Portable Mini Twin Tub went ahead and did it. While neck and neck, both provide excellent washing results for such small washing machines. The Zeny Lightweight Small Laundry Washer wins out by having a bigger capacity; it can handle 13 lbs of laundry\u2014the most we\u2019ve seen among compact washers we\u2019ve reviewed. It suffers from the same two washer cycles, however: Normal and Soft. The Panda Compact Washing Machine has 6 washing cycles, however.\r\nDesign\r\nTrue to its name, the Zeny Portable Mini Twin Tub has\u2014well, two tubs; one for washing, the other for the spin cycle. When the washer is done, you can toss the wet clothing immediately into the spin tub and squeeze most of the water out for better drying. It has three dials along the top. The dial on the far left is a washer timer, with the far right dial connected to the spin cycle. In the middle, you\u2019ll find the wash cycles: Normal, Soft, and a Drain option (drain hose is in the back).\r\nValue\r\nGiven the Zeny Twin Tub Washing Machine\u2019s performance and design, we can say, for certain, the Zeny portable Compact Washer has excellent value. In fact, it even beats the Giantex Portable Mini Compact Twin Tub by a very slim margin. For starters, the Zeny Compact Mini Twin Tub can handle 2 more lbs of laundry. The number of washing cycles is the same\u2014but it being shorting and slimmer than the Giantex Portable puts it a step ahead. And let\u2019s not forget it\u2019s $5 cheaper than the Super Deal Portable Twin Tub.\r\nZENY Portable Mini Twin Tub Washing Machine Review Wrap Up\r\nWhat the Zeny Portable Mini Twin Tub lacked\u2014two simple wash cycles\u2014was easily overlooked by its handling of 13 lbs of laundry at once. At the same time, its spin dryer did well to squeeze out any remaining water. All of this was possible even with such a compact, space saving design.
