Most flash dryers in this price range use Metal Sheath elements like you would see in an oven (Competitor 3 below). A BBC Afford-a-Flash uses a proprietary BBC Heating Elements (Made in the USA) with a single serpentine filament formed close together to provide consistent heat throughout the heating area(Picture 2 below). A Metal Sheath Element (Made in China) emits high intensity heat from its filament which are widely spaced so you have very Hot spots and very Cold spots, which doesn't result in a consistent cure. The BBC Afford-A-Flash element, on the other hand, emits high intensity heat from its many coils which are much more tightly packed producing a massively more even temperature emission then even the high price competitors (Competitor 1 below).
With fewer parts there are fewer things to go wrong. The Afford-A-Flash doesn't have an on/off switch, but can easily be plugged into the wall or hooked up to an industrial power strip to turn on and off. There is some assembly required, but with a few bolts you have a flash that's efficient, reliable and ready to be put to work. The BBC element used in this flash dryer is the same element used it BBC's high end series. These elements have been used in tens of thousands of shops throughout the world; the quality and longevity speaks for itself and dwarfs any manufacturer's warranty!
