Dyson Air Multiplier fan – AM01 desk fan, 10 inch, available in White/Silver

The Dyson Air Multiplier fan delivers a constant stream of smooth air. No blades. No buffeting.

Conventional fans have blades, which chop the air before it hits you, causing unpleasant buffeting. The Dyson Air Multiplier fan has no blades. Instead, it uses Air Multiplier technology to amplify air 15 times, generating up to 330 litres of smooth, uninterrupted air every second. No blades. No buffeting.

The 10 inch Dyson Air Multiplier fan is available in White/Silver. The 12 inch model is available in Silver/Iron.

How it works
The air that travels through the Dyson Air Multiplier™ is multiplied 15 times
The air is multiplied 15 times giving a smooth, unbuffetted air flow. View larger

1) Up to 27 litres of air per second is drawn in by an energy efficient, brushless motor. A combination of the technologies used in turbochargers and jet engines generates a powerful flow of air.

2) Airflow is accelerated though an annular aperture. It passes over a 16° airfoil-shaped ramp, which channels its direction.

3) Air behind the Dyson Air Multiplier fan is drawn into the airflow, through a process known as inducement.

4) Air around the machine is also drawn into the airflow, through a process known as entrainment, amplifying it 15 times. The resulting airflow is smooth and constant, with no unpleasant buffeting.

Smooth airflow
The blades on conventional fans cause unpleasant buffeting because they chop the air. Air Multiplier technology gives an uninterrupted stream of air.

There are no fast-spinning blades on the Dyson Air Multiplier fan, so it's safe and doesn't need to have a grille.

Easy to clean
Because there are no awkward grilles to disassemble and put back, the Dyson Air Multiplier fan is easy to clean. Just wipe the loop amplifier with a cloth.

Touch-tilt - pivots on its own centre of gravity
The motor is positioned in the base rather than at the top, which allows the Dyson Air Multiplier fan to pivot on its own centre of gravity for easy touch-tilt. So it's not top-heavy and cumbersome like other fans.

Dimmer-switch control
Unlike conventional fans, which have a few settings to adjust power, the airflow generated by the Dyson Air Multiplier fan can be adjusted at the turn of a dial to deliver precisely the amount you want.

Smooth oscillation
To oscillate a conventional fan you have to hold it steady, pull the toggle and watch it judder. The Dyson Air Multiplier fan oscillates 90º at the touch of a button.

2 year parts and labour guarantee
The Dyson Air Multiplier fans come with a 2 year parts and labour guarantee. And if you do need help or advice you can call Dyson's award-winning customer service team for free. You'll be put straight through to a Dyson expert.

The problem with conventional fans
Electric fans hadn't changed much since they were invented in 1882. Grilles have been added. Materials are different. Buttons have popped up. But the fundamental problem remains the same - their blades chop the air. And choppy air causes annoying and uncomfortable buffeting. Take out the blades, and the buffeting stops. But how do you make a fan that works without blades?

How air behaves at high speed
Whilst developing the technology behind the Dyson Airblade hand dryer, Dyson engineers noticed how accelerating air at high speeds through a narrow aperture caused surrounding air to be drawn in. They realised that this phenomenon could be useful, particularly in a fan. After running hundreds of tests, they discovered the ideal ramp angle, aperture width and loop amplifier dimensions to develop a fan without blades.

Motor technology
To generate a jet of air powerful enough to work properly, the motor needed to be able to pull in more than 20 litres of air per second. To do this Dyson engineers designed a new type of 3-dimensional impeller with nine asymmetrically aligned fins, combining technologies found in jet engines and turbochargers.

Testing airflow
To test airflow smoothness, Dyson engineers used a technique called Laser Doppler Anemometry. Millions of tiny particles were injected into the airflow to make flow patterns visible to laser technology. Four lasers were used to track the speed and direction of the particles, taking up to 2,000 measurements per second. Four million velocity measurements allowed fluid dynamics engineers to create a detailed map of the airflow.

One engineer had the original idea, but it took every discipline from Dyson's 350-strong team of engineers and scientists to develop Air Multiplier technology.

    The Dyson fan works by having a small fast fan in the base push air up and out through the magic ring.

    First the good:

    It looks good and feels well made.
    Air flow is excellent and easy to control. Tilt and swivel all work well.

    Now the bad:

    No remote control, or sleep mode (i.e. turn off after 1,2,3 hours).

    It isn't quiet, it's not really noisy either, but because there's a small fast fan in the base it does tend to make a weeee sound rather than the more usual flubflubflub of a big fan (You'll have to provide your own sound effects). When I use it in the bedroom, I have it as fast as I can without the noise becoming invasive, which isn't the way it should be.

    The price is absurd. Keep in mind it costs more than the air con unit I have in the lounge. That has a remote, a sleep function and actively makes air cold. There's nothing on this thing to justify the price tag from a parts perspective.

    After reading all the reviews on Amazon, looking at both the negatives and positives I decided to go into my saving to purchase one of these intriguing "fans".

    When you open the box that contains this product you will see that it is split into two parts; the base and the top part.
    Setting up was very easy and simple, you just place the "hoop" on the base, give it a twist until it clicks and that's all too it, just plug it in and away you go.

    When the product is turned on, there is a noticeable amount of noise on the lowest setting, but it really didn't bother me at all, as it was quieter than the blade fan I have in my room that I'm used to hearing and it also gave a better breeze than my other fan could ever deliver.

    The breeze level is very adjustable as it's adjusted by turning the knob at the front, instead of having buttons "0, 1, 2".
    I have to admit that when I turned it to the max there was a fair amount of noise (which may bother SOME people), however compared to the fan in my room which has an annoying rattling sound as well as the noise of the blades turning, I would rather listen to the smooth sound of the motor spinning inside the Dyson fan which somewhat sounds like a smoother, quieter version of a vacuum?

    The Dyson fan also has a rotation feature which it rotates roughly 90°, and the fan can be tilted down or up also.

    This product is definitely safer than a normal fan, without blades spinning around there isn't any danger of children trying to stick objects through the grates (which I did when I was a child), or even try to stick their finger through as well, never mind if they manage to get the case off the blades would be exposed.

    Cleaning? EASY!

    Forgetting the noise it makes for a minute, it's an awesome product...
    Sat on my desk, it reminds me of something that Apple would create, it's all about design first (functionality second place), the air that it delivers is indeed smooth and notably better than most blade fans.
    However, it's noise levels are totally unacceptable to me, as someone has already said - Dyson missed a trick here, if this had a silent mode I'd buy another for my bedroom.
    But theres no way I could have this on my desk with the whine it makes (best described as a hair dryer noise but not quite the same decibels).
    At full speed, it really does sound like a hair dryer, I could live with that because it would be rare to need such a gale force 10 in your face, but at the lowest speed it still whines at levels I couldn't live with.
    I sent mine back, and still using my £25 fan which is more than 10db quieter and no whine sounds.

    If you have the money, and don't mind the noise, then you'd be happy.
    Hopefully James Dyson is working on the MkII version which can deliver without the noise (now there's a challenge for him).

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    A new concept in fans for sure. I have had this fan at work for a week or so now and it certainly catches people's attention, and the standard comment `how does that work then' is never too far away.

    It does work well, tilt is easy to set, oscillation easy to turn on but not so easy to turn off, the button is on the part of the fan that rotates so you have to chase the button around in an attempt to turn it off. The air flow is controlled on a rotary knob allowing you to pick just the right air flow which is a really great feature as the usual fixed speeds on fans can be limiting.

    The one big disappointment is the noise it makes and I can't help feel it is an opportunity missed by Dyson to make a quite fan. The fan is quite noisy even on the lowest speed. I can forgive the high noise of the fastest speed as it really is powerful and pushes through a lot of air, so chances are you will only use this setting when needed and the noise won't be an issue, but, if you just wanted a gentle flow of air to keep you cool whilst watching TV or the like, you might find the noise off putting.

    The fan has the usual solid Dyson feel and looks quite smart. Appears very easy to clean unlike a normal fan which seems to pick up a lot of dust on the blades.

    As to Dyson's claim that the continuous flow of air is better than the choppy air provided by a normal fan, I do have to agree with this, I found the fan much more comfortable to have on for long periods of time than a normal fan, I might just be imagining it, but my normal fan did seem to dry my eyes out after a while leaving them a little sore, I haven't had this issue with the Dyson.

    Outrageous price aside, it's a great fan.
