Was looking at this at £50, not sure if it is any good? Maybe worth a punt at the reduced price


This lightweight, yet sturdy, heated clothes airer from Minky is prefect for drying clothes whatever the weather. The 12m capacity, easy to manoeuvre airer comes with a cover that helps retain heat and improve the drying performance. Costing less than 4p an hour to run* it's more economical and kinder to your clothes than a tumble dryer. *Based on Energysavingtrust. Org. Uk average electricity prices on 08/03/2017 in England, Scotland & Wales of 13.86p/kWh.

This minky heated airer offers 12m of drying space, holding 10kg of laundry. If space is at a premium, you can fold the airer flat for compact storage.

Got one last week for £50 return it next day. Was on 12 hours with cover on and the clothes was still wet, only bit that was dry was the bit on the bar normal airer does a better job, have no idea why this have such good reviews..
don’t waste your time
These things are totally useless and a waste of electricity (even with a cover it's going to keep the water that evaporates in for longer).

My wife bought one last year and ended up giving it to a charity shop.

Best off saving a bit more for a dehumidifier and then it will pay for itself and also won't have trouble with a damp house as the water has to go somewhere (you will be paying more to heat the house as well if you have the windows open to get rid of the damp).

I just have our clothes on a normal airer on the landing and have the dehumidifier near the radiator at the top of landing blowing the heat onto the clothes (although even the last week I have not had the heating on and it's still drying the clothes well).

Not sure how this would dry clothes effectively. It might dry the strip that heats up but what about the bit hanging down?!

It comes with a cover, I'm assuming the heat spreads with the cover on? Or was I really that bad at Science.

I have got one. Better heater than dryer. Needs to be covered. Things that hook onto radiator better.

I normally leave it on the setting where it turns off when the humidity gets town to 40, but there is a clothes setting that keeps it on all the time, but don't use that.

Ha. Same one as I’ve got. Really good, extracts a lot of water, quiet. But you wouldn’t want to leave it on 24/7. I calculated it’d cost £250 to run over the year.

Nope - I don't leave it on all the time and when I do have it on I leave it on the lower setting normally and one that turns off when the humidity reaches a certain level (it will start back op automatically once it goes above that level).

I guess it still costs a lot less than using a tumble dryer, leaving the windows open or having the heating on higher to dry clothes though.
Had a similar product few years back - close to useless. Screwfix has a 500W one that has controls over the heat and a timer...bout £70/80. At least this one works. The ones you see around are 100W at most.
