Starts this Sunday

Given that heat rises, I wonder how effective this is???

I bought one last year and it only dried the part of the clothes touching the heated bars so it was pretty rubbish. Used it once then sold it at a car boot sale

Get a dry buddy for an extra £25.
Much better

Remember seeing these cheaper elsewhere however had been told heated airers were poor

Lakeland sell something like this for quite a bit more money. I read tons of the reviews and what seems to be the overall opinion is that you need to lay the wet items across the tops of the bars, two or three deep. That way more of the clothing gets dried and the space between the bars is covered too. Some people said that they lay a large sheet over the whole thing on top of the drying washing, to help keep the heat in if the room is cool or cold. I'd rather just use the tumble dryer.

Yes, this just isn't going to work. And £29.99 isnt cheap enough not to care.

I am sure one of those wire things that attached to a radiator would do a better job ... given that radiators are usually on anyway this time of year. But, too much moisture going into the house can be a problem, if it condenses on cold surfaces.

Looks like the Lakeland original, which I have and it works fine. About 3p per day to run on electric bills

OK, the theory is that the heated bars cause convection air currents which move air through all the clothes on the rails - it's not the heat energy from the bars that directly causes drying but the (circulating) air. Which made me wonder whether an electric fan would do rather better?

I used to dry my clothes at uni by hanging them on a normal concertina airer and pointing the fan into it. Worked so much better than my housemates ridiculous dry buddy and used 50w instead of 1200w

Me to with the tumble dryer.1 hour in dryer then pack it away.No damp air in the house.

I bought one that looked identical to this when it was on offer at Dunhelm Mill for £20. It works ok but the 2 folding wings are not heated. The Aldi description says all bars are heated so maybe different or misleading.

Just buy a cheap airer and fan heater for about £6 each from B&M, Home Bargains and you have yourself a far better clothes dryer that not only dries your clothes but heats the room at the same time

We do our best to make our houses airtight keeping heat in & the cold out so can someone explain the benefits this will bring?? Dry socks at the expense of adding moisture to the air creating laden air that will help form condensation & in time mildew & mould spores.

If you're getting one make sure you ventilate the room - open a window. Then put the heating on because it's cold.

I use a normal clothes horse which i put at the top of the stairs at night with clothes on. As my house is open plan and the heat rises they are usually dry next morning.

get a dehumidifier a big one mine has a hot air exhaust at the back. which I direct towards my drying clothes. a real difference

Might end up costing more in electricity than using a tumble dryer though.

used these before they are not very good

I have the larger 3 tiered one from Lakeland that's around £100. best thing I ever bought! I don't own a tumble dryer and could afford to anyway. I get a full load on my heated airer in the morning, throw a double bed sheet over to keep the heat in and the clothes are dry by the evening

*Couldn't

Negligible difference between this and a cheap clothes horse so not a hot deal in my opinion.

But I get the same result with an airer that's not heated.

on amazon this sells for abt 50 quid!

We use the Lakeland one + dehumidifier. Very effective. Since this one appears to be only a single tier I can't see it would be particularly effective though. Get what you pay for.
