Oh, and when the dryer is set to "Low Delicate Medium Rare" the heater coil visibly cycles roughly every 55 seconds.  The temp (measured with a very reliable $1.99 oven thermometer), is ~150 deg F.

When the dryer is set to "High Heavy Flame Broil", I watched the heater until I got bored and started to drift off, nearly drooling into the 220V circuit.  It took a whole 85 seconds ( 1:25 ).  Oven thermometer reads ~175 deg F.

Wife says "Low Delicate" used to be sort of a luke warm wind, not a 150 deg F toaster.
