Since when have they had a 60 day money back guarantee "if not happy"?

They are pretty good at changing things that are bust, but that's not the same thing, and I am not aware of any special short term guarantee other than that, and I can't find one on the web site.

The 60 day policy (once upto a time was 1yr refund for ANY reason, back when Aldi were an up and coming force)... is
"Sometimes you can buy something and when you get it home, it’s ‘just not quite right’.
"We understand this. So we’re happy to refund or replace any item you buy from us. As long as you return the item within 60 days of purchase – with a receipt, in original and undamaged packaging, complete with any accessories such as headphones or remote controls – the Aldi 60 Day Refund Policy is available to every customer."
So best be careful with the packaging when unpacking!

Yeah, as I said, it's not the same thing...
"in original and undamaged packaging" is hard to do with a LOT of Aldi products, and totally impossible with many, the way they are sealed!
Try them and they can't go back in the packaging! :-(

400ml in 24 hours doesn't seem like much? I've got a (bigger) unit in the garage and I'm sure it draws that much in 1 or 2 hours in a humid environment.

I bought one of these the other week. 400 ml per day (@80% relative humidity) is the maximum it can extract and its going to be even lower at lower relative humidity. Just not enough..

I tried something similar to this last year but it wasn't much use at all. Ended up just getting an Ebac one which was a lot more but did have a five year Guarantee (although I think the the five years was only if you bought direct from Ebac). Anyway, its one of the best things we've bought. Using it now to dry our washing!

@SaturdayBoy I've been wondering about dehumidifying the washing dry. Did you construct a wardrobe or something similar specifically for the job?

Anyone know how much power it uses while running? It would be useful to know - no point buying a cheap one if it's going to use £300 of electricity every year!

Tut, you just hang the washing from a clothes hanger or rack and have it on in the room....
Obviously this isn't really for this job as it is small and far cheaper. For Laundry you want a unit costing £100+.
This is a good item for i.e. in kitchen to stop tiles being constantly full of condensation...

Agreed - if you're drying washing, you'll probably want to be extracting a litre every few hours. 400ml per day won't really do a lot.

Looking at similar models this looks pretty useless, albeit cheap. At Argos their value model, £79.99, removes 10L per day although they do do a model a similar price to this which only removes 250ml per day.

Uses 60W/hour; Packaging minimal; plastic bag & two polystyrene ends should you want to repack & return.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, 60W isn't too bad. Think I'll pass though.

I just put it all on a clothes horse (this one from wilkinsons) and put it in the spare room with the dehumidifier. It works a treat. Our model is the 2650 and its been worth every penny. I've seen the same model in the Argos book but don't think it has the 5 year guarantee.

Also a friend of ours said you can get some kind of "tent" to go over the clothes horse and the dehumidifier but I've not seen them.

Hope this helps

anyone know what this midi dehumidifier is like? its available at aldi and wanted to know what people thought of it?

thanks
