Looks like I was lucky as they are out of stock, I was looking for the link but it's gone. Sorry guys
These style of airer are rubbish for things with weight, like towels and jeans. You load them up and then you later hear them collapse in the next room. Or even worse, if you go out and come home to a pile of damp clothes on the floor. Get something with flat shelves like the one photographed in comments. I use a tower clothes airer with 3 shelves and it's held up longer than a decade.
^^^ ditto. Thanks in advance.
Can you link the item? I can’t see a £10 one on the George site.
Never miss a 'Airer' deal again!

50m Brabantia lift-o-matic 4 arm clothes airer with groundspike. Discounted and free delivery when you spend over £50 at Robert Dyas.
(highfive) Thanks for taking the time to post @Nathan_Warburton
The spike is absolute rubbish. Ours split going into comparatively soft ground and I ended up hammering wood stakes down the sides to keep it steadyish. The device itself is excellent, but you'll probably need another spike. We ended up putting it into a metal bin and keeping it centred with bricks top and bottom of the bin, then filling the gaps with gravel to add ballast.
Just fitted a ground spike for our Brabantia last week. Due to all the stones and flint ended up digging a hole and postcreting in. Took about two hours, not an easy job.
Oh sorry, thought you meant a proper auger. Got a link? Have a small area in my garden with poor drainage & clay soil. Could possibly try something like that if it's so cheap as a hollow tine aerator/lawn sand was only partially successful.
The auger drill bit I had for planting bulbs but it was £3 - no need to hire!!!
Great deal, 100 quid off normal price, managed to snag one. If anyone wanted one but missed out the standard version is still in stock https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265619292730?epid=1939361268&hash=item3dd824c23a:g:fBsAAOSwk9piaoHY
Agreed - that was the claim three years ago when we bought ours - checked and closer to 20p hour now.
I’ve never understood these using heating. It costs so much. Put your clothes on and point a fan at it. Will dry quicker at a fraction of the cost.
I think a dehumidifier would be a much better investment
I always see completely mixed reviews on these as to whether they're amazing or completely useless. As someone without a dryer and who hardly ever has the radiators turned on, wold this be worth it? I don't see any guidance on how long it actually takes, some reviews saying it takes literally all day(s) because it only actually dries the thin piece of material that is touching the bars? I wouldn't mind running it all day at 4p/hr, but would that be enough to dry a load of underwear and a few tshirts/trousers?
This deal should get hot (if not it might be faulty or not plugged in) Thanks and have a nice Sunday (y)
Usual price elsewhere https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01CUDHFZC?tag=tinyrocket-21&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1 Dunelm do them for that price too if you're not fussed about Status brand.
Thanks, that's a good price. I ended up getting the 50m from homebase the other week along with the peg bag and cover, a bit more but I wanted the accessories anyway, so I'm happy enough.
In my experience yes but it will blanket cover the whole thing. No pun intended. Just posted a deal for the 50m one, if that's what you're looking for. Price on this one not bad at all so no idea why it's cold but hate paying delivery online.
Yep I agree, I'm currently browsing around for the 50m version and based on what I'm finding this seems good for the 60m currently. No idea why its gone cold.
Is this big enough to fit King size bedding (bedsheet and duvet cover)?
I personally thought this was a great price for the 60m one considering you get a metal spike & cover with it?
Just bought this from Camborne Cornwall they had a couple left
I have this (sadly paid full price a few months ago) and it's great :)
Got 3 and two 6ft teenage boys so one airer doesn't cut it. 230w probs × 24hrs hours without my woodburner, 3 hours with it, plus there's the free fitness aspect of chopping wood. Don't knock it until your bill comes in next month, you might have to sell your crown, maybe even your HomCom 'executive' swivel chair. (party)
When running out of airers.. You a collector of airiers? 230w of power. Ohh how the rich live.
I have one of these without the cover and tbh use it as my third choice when running out of regular airers. When its relatively warm in the house but rainy outside I stick mine in a box room with the door shut & a fan on one side of the airers and a dehumidifier on the other. If (like many) you're keeping an eye on the bills atm this combined with a dehumidifier in a cool box room will bring the temperature up sufficiently to make the dehumidifier more efficient. Only reason I don't do this myself is I have a woodburner & a reasonably constant supply of free wood so in the depths of winter I just get it all dry in the lounge on my midweek, working from home day, before the rabble get home. I actually take pleasure in hanging clothes on the line at this time of year & listening to the birds singing but the missus usually brings it all in and folds it lol! If you haven't time (or don't want to make time) for it, heat pump driers seem to be becoming more affordable every year.
Thanks. Got one today in Cardiff too, loads still left :)
I think £39.99 excluding VAT , £47.98 including VAT. But still a bargain!
Got one in Cardiff today around midday, there were at least 20 left
Nice one. Bought one in Reading today. They had a few left. Plus vat?
These are superb. Bought ours 20 years ago and still going strong (I do bring it into the garage in Winter). WE get through the covers though, the fabric one beats the plastic ones, and lasts around 3-4 years.

Heated Clothes Airer with Wings £39.99 Free Click & Collect / £4.95 Delivery @ Robert Dyas£39.99Robert Dyas Deals
Dry your clothes quickly with Status 220W Heated Clothes Airer with Wings. Made from aluminium, it is lightweight and easy to set up in your home. After use, simply fold this indoor airer …
That's true, compressor dehumidifiers do have a minimum operating temperature and typically work best over 18C, but they do create a little heat themselves so in a smaller space they will provide some ambient heat to help them do their job. Desiccant dehumidifiers work in any temperature 1C and above.
This also I think this depends on individual circumstances. If your house is relatively warm, then a dehumidifier works well. If you have a cold house, they can't extract the moisture quickly. I tried a dehumidifier but because my home is at between 13 and 14 degrees C because I can't afford to heat it to 18-21C, the dehumidifier didn't work. A heated airer works much better.
I've got a Lakeland "Dry Soon" and think its very good. It has a made to measure cover that keeps the warmth in. Sure, these won't dry your clothes quickly, but it definitely means I can get a washload dry in a day whereas clothes used to sit on my non-heated airer for days before they were dry. I'm not sure this Robert Dyas deal is as good as Aldi. Their product is exactly the same but with a 3-year guarantee... https://www.aldi.co.uk/easy-home-heated-airer/p/713313545173201
What were you trying to dry?
Seriously these things are rubbish. Had one for a while now and can genuinely say without a shadow of doubt they are a total waste of money.
Norwich store said out of stock went in and found 1 onn the shelf. Bargain works a treat used it with a parasol base and compost bags into get it concreted in ground bargain for the price. Worth looking instore you may get lucky
Ordered. Heat added.
Think previous post on this mentioned something about the steel and not being very weatherprooof. Hence Utility room/ indoors airer.
