There are many mis informed comments being made on here:

Firstly 2kw is 2kw no matter which piece of equipment you buy, However like everything else in life 'usually' the more you pay for a more recognised brand i.e. Delonghi, Dimplex the longer the warranty, the better made the product, the more features and the most important the R&D that has gone into the design which makes the product more economical to run.

I have a wide variety of different electric heaters having lived a number of years off the mains gas supply and being reliant on electric and oil heating, so the costs of running these items is very important.

I have the newer version of the electric heater posted here

amazon.co.uk/Dim…kh5

really is a wonderful piece of engineering and walks all over my £19.99 2kw convector heaters here

amazon.co.uk/Gle…-11

The warm up on these things is rapid, I mean it can warm a decent 12ft x 12ft lounge from 16 degrees to 20 degrees in less than half an hour and with the built in climate control thermostat will maintain the temp all day/night, not wasting a penny more of electric than is needed, it is also silent in operation and has remote control functionality, in my opinion it is very accurate.

I also have a ceramic fan heater here

amazon.co.uk/DeL…1-3

Again built in thermostat and remote control operated and will very very quickly heat a room using radiant heat, but its noisier than the heater above and once switched off it cools quickly so its a case of all or nothing.

Finally I have a Delonghi oil filled radiator here

amazon.co.uk/DeL…1-3

A lot slower at warming up a room, maybe an hour to get a 16 degree 12ft x 12ft room up to temp, but once temperature is reached it uses very little to maintain the temp, so if I was using the room all day I would choose this over the fan heater and the oil free radiator, however for a short burst of heat then this would not be my first choice, that would be the fan heater.

So in summary you get what you pay for, the cheaper the heater the poor the quality and components either burn out (giving you less heat than your paying for) and the surface area is usually less so even though your paying for 2kw actual heat being pumped out is only a small amount. Also find that the thermostats are poor on the cheaper models which means that when leaving the heater on all day or night it either heats too much or not enough.

Fan heater - For very rapid warm up for a short period (1-2 hours)

Oil free (As per this post) - Overnight to maintain a bedroom temp

Oil filled - All day heating where a rooms temp needs to be maintained

Hope this helps

Not a good buy. All electric heaters use the same amount of relatively expensive electricity to produce the same heat.
You can buy something like this £12.45 del. and put the saved 60 quid towards your electric bill.

I thought the point of an Oil Radiator against a Fan Heater is that the Oil retains the heat? Not voting here cause I'm not sure the price is great but I disagree with your comment re Fan Heaters. This would produce more heat for longer than a fan heater...
still not a good deal, this one yesterday was a good deal hotukdeals.com/dea…31/

you are right in that the oil filled ones in theory use less electric as once the oil is heated, it continues to omit heat, where as a fan one heat is on or off, however a fan one will heat the room far quicker than this.
Re Oil-Filled v Convector, bear in mind that although the oil-filled will continue to heat the room slowly after its been switched off until the oil cools, the convector would have been switched off far, far earlier as the room has been heated much quicker.

Ultimately a 2kw oil filled and a 2kw convector will use the same electricity if used for same timescale, usually though the convector will be used less as the room has been heated quicker, each type has its use if used correctly.
The Cadiz has a digital 24 hr timeswitch, and a far more accurate thermostat.
Most importantly, THE CADIZ WON'T SET ALIGHT IF YOU DROP SOMETHING ON IT.
I've got both, and they don't begin to compare. So HOT from me.
I had one of these last year for a bit before returning it because it gave off less heat than a 2KW oil heater.

Probably fine for a smaller room but otherwise forget it.
