jml dri buddi heated clothes airer at dunelm was £49.99 now £29.99 not available for delivery but you can reserve it. I was looking for a clothes airer and come across the dri buddi airer.
I've looked at this a few times but with it being a jml I was a dubious about buying it so I was wondering if anyone has bought one if so would you recommend it.

I had one. It worked. It was advertised as being quiet, but it was like having a hair drier running.

I got one of these 2 years ago and regularly use it. Great for shirts and smaller items if you buy one of those plastic peg hangers for small items. Less successful for longer items like adult jeans or trousers. Would work for baby and kids clothes.Cheap to run and in the winter the dissipated heat warms the bathroom!

I've had one of these for about a year now, and I am not overly impressed with it. It does come in moderately handy in the winter months because if any of the clothes are touching each other or the sides of the dri buddy or not hanging straight, then they don't get completely dry, you have to periodically turn clothes around. There's no way trousers folded over a hanging clothes hanger (as in the picture on the web site) would dry. I've never used all of the available hanging space in one go as the clothes just wouldn't get dry. So don't expect this to dry a wash load in a couple of hours, it would probably take all day.

I've got one of these - it does what it says on the tin and is perfect in my tiny flat. Not sure the landlord would agree given the condensation it generates though

I got this for £10 a few months ago in Dunelm

Get the electric airer from Aldi, same price and much better at drying. And best thing no noise at all

It's pretty noisy, like a constant low hum I certainly wouldn't want to be sitting in the same room as it for long .We've had one for 3 years, and it's still gets used in the winter months and we've never had any complaints. My only gripe is that fitting more that 12-15 items in it is a struggle.

I would say this is a great price and it costs a lot less to run than a tumble dryer!

HOT - pardon the pun. :D

Had one a few years ago - don't think I paid more than £20 for it. Worked OK, not groundbreaking - usually fired my non-iron shirts into it; they worked reasonably well.

Worth considering it's basically a hairdryer blowing hot air into a bag for a fairly large amount of time - we definitely had nicer electricity bills when we stopped using it!
#11
Amazing price and these are amazing for the winter in a small home
#12
This is super cheap for an excellent product....wouldn't be without
#13
Still think this is great for small homes without a dryer and/or space for a heated clothes airer, but a condenser tumble dryer will probably be cheaper TO RUN in reality:

Perfect if you want your flat to have high humidity, condensation, peeling wallpaper and mould. Otherwise, get a drying rack and a decent dehumidifier. Dries clothes quickly (4-5 hours) without generating all the moisture and is much, much cheaper to run.

I use this airer - less than 6p an hour. Our electricity bills have dropped dramitically in comparison to last years usage with a condenser dryer.
We have already recouped the price of the dryer in the energy savings in 3 months!!

I would recommend the hood to be included to get a faster drying time

It nicely warms the room too.

Might save energy but it can take upto 24 hours to completely dry stuff. It's ok but takes up space and most definitely does not warm up a room unless its a tiny room.

Depends on thickness of clothes. Jeans take around 12 hours to dry WITH the additional hood on.
Other clothes can dry in 4 hours WITH the hood on.

8 hours actually. so we use overnight

I've had one of these now for just under 2 years, no problems. I normally fill it up, with all sorts from boxers to jeans/joggers. I pop it on for an hour before work and when I get back another hour and everything's dry.
No mould or pealing wallpaper...
#21
I bought one as my new house didn't have space for a tumble dryer.

It was rubbish tbh. Complete eyesore and took ages to dry anything.

I ended up just buying a washer dryer.

They don't. They use on average 20p an hour so it's quite cheap
#23
We've had one for a couple of years now and I'd highly recommend it but if you are drying clothes indoors with or without one of these, make sure you get a dehumidifier as condensation levels will be high causing black mold on windows and walls.
#24
Avoid at all costs. Bought one as a stop-gap when our tumble dryer packed in. Absolute crap. Massive, hideous and very noisy. Boxed it up after one try and took it back to Argos for a refund. Would have been better drying my stuff with a hair dryer or better still, leaving the oven door open (would likely have been cheaper with the oven option). HaHa.
#25
Agree 100%. We got one, on the strength of rave reviews, and found it to be pretty disappointing. Takes, literally, hours to dry clothes and thicker items are a no-go. Also takes-up a considerable amount of space when the bag inflates as it's switched-on. We soon stopped using it and bought a condensing tumble dryer. Yes, of course a tumble dryer is far more expensive to purchase, but we use it all the time and it dries everything perfectly and doesn't actually cost that much to run... approx. 2300W for a couple of hours max, which equates to approx. 45p. Small loads and/or lighter items of clothing take less than an hour, so approx. 20p.

I have one of these to dry my judo kit as a tumble dryer would shrink them, and it works well - takes 3hours as the fabric is so heavy, but far less for things like tshirts etc. It doesn't fit that many items because you have to ensure the clothes are spaced well to allow the warm air to circulate or it ends up with damp patches where theres contact. It makes a noise similar to a fan heater (essentially what it is), but I've never had any problem with condensation

Dry buddy = mould buddy.

if you use this make sure you set up the cover properly, otherwise the thing can melt.

It set itself on fire in my sisters front room while they were upstairs! She had it a year but no excuse. When she contacted the company they ignored her. I would not recommend!

With reports of 12 hours to dry jeans, that could be hideously expensive.

A tumble dryer you're probably talking 20-35p per load.

I don't think this is aimed at the family market.
I think it's more aimed at people who just want to wash a few boxers, socks and a few shirts. Pop it on and head out to work. It's an alternative to leaving the heating on.

Is it loud? Who cares I'm at the office.
Does it look nice? Who cares I'm at the office.
Is it expensive to run? Well not compared to leaving the heating on.

If you are young and renting a furnished flat/apartment and may well move every 12 months (or a student) then it may be more suited than moving round a dryer even if you have space.

Been using mine for years and I wouldn't be without it, paid lots more for mine its a good buy :D
#33
Had one for a fortnight and then sold it on. Tooks hours to dry most things, very noisy and frankly flimsy.
#34
One word. Condensation.
#35
You will find one from the Lakeland range would suit you better than the product posted - We have one for the past six years ZERO noise and dries it overnight and folds neatly and economical..

mine costs roughly 9p per hour to run! I suppose for some folks that would break the bank but I think it is a great bit of kit :p

In comparison to a tumble dryer, they can be quite expensive.
Most thick items (jeans, jumpers etc) take at least 8 - 10 hours to dry and you can only put a small amount of clothes in it for it to be effective so £1.60+ for a really small load works out as expensive compared to a conventional dryer.

12 hours is excessive. Depends how much you put in. These are good for studio flats and places with no room for a dryer otherwise they do get expensive
