I brought this to heat my summer house which is ~ 3 x 3.6 meters and it really does a great job. On the 1kW setting it manages to keep the room at a constant 22C (with outside at ~5c) at a thermostat setting of ~ 3/4 of the dial maximum.
I could have it warmer but it would be on more (and cost more); I don't really use the 2Kw setting.
It has a frost setting which attempts to keep the room at ~ 5C, it also has a timer so it can be set to come on and off at pre-set times, there are three separate on/off times that you can set and there is a simple on/off button to switch between timer mode and manual mode. The surface of the heater does get too hot to touch for longer than a couple of seconds.
All round very good product and would recommend it.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 12 December 2012
This radiator provides a good level of warmth and also heats up quickly. You can vary the temperature quite considerably with the thermostat control. The highest setting does give out a considerable amount of heat. However, this model of radiator is not without its problems. I bought two of these for my grandmother when her central heating stopped working, and to provide an additional source of heat for her over the winter when the central heating was fixed. This Dimplex radiator does come with a three-year guarantee, which is just as well because over a period of six months I had to get one of the radiators replaced on four different occasions. They were being used for several hours per day for most of this time, but surely should be more robust than that? Dimplex have very good customer service I must add when you do have a problem with one of their products, with replacements always arriving within 48 hours.

We bought one of these for use in our house during renovations. It did the job very well, but after about 4 months it gave up the ghost and stopped working. Amazon were excellent and sent out a replacement immediately allowing us to use the box of the replacement to return the original in a couple of days later. The second one only had limited use (about a month) and then went up to the loft. It worked very well for our purposes and the problem we had with it was solved so quickly it wasn't an issue.

This heater really puts out a lot of heat. I really wanted a heater with a timer so I could leave it to come on at night on the cheaper electric and I didn't want to use a plug in timer. I read the reviews on this model carefully and I agree with them. It is hard to set up the timer, but once set it has battery back up so if you unplug the heater for a short while you do not have to reset the timer. You also have to be very careful that the auto mode does not click over to manual and be on permanently. This happens when you move the heater or when you interrupt the electricity supply. However there is a small red light which shows when the heater is using electricity, so you can click the button to change it back to auto quite easily. This is the only reason I have given 4 instead of 5 stars.

Friends told me these radiators make a noise when they are switched on. This one is silent, is very effective and probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. I have a wood burner which heats most of the house but with this 1 appliance in addition to my wood burner I have zero gas bills throughout the winter. I cannot praise this heater enough. Thank you from one very happy customer

Although replaced speedily by Amazon it's difficult to use because the unlit programming panel has no back-light & is awkwardly placed.
There is no temperature indicator or on/off light to confirm when the thermostat has switched itself off.
A disappointing Dimplex purchase.

Love this radiator. The real plus with this one that there are so many easy ways to control it.

The 1kw/2kw switch is something I utilise a lot, since I like to start the day with the heater on the 2kw setting, just to get it warmed up fast, then switch to the 1kw setting when I'm happy with how the room feels.

It also comes with a timer. Although I don't use this feature often, I have tried it, and it's easy to configure. If you go on vacation often, then I imagine the timer would come in very handy. There's even a frost protection feature on the thermostat, meaning the heater will keep the room at above 5'C when the thermostat is activated.

All in all, this was a great buy. It works great. It looks great. It'll hopefully keep me warm for a long time to come. Highly recommended.

I only wish I had bought this years ago rather than suffering in my cold attic room in winter. It was very easy to set up and I had it up and running within 30 minutes of it arriving. Please note that it is very heavy. I don't move it much but if you intend to move it around then that might be a pain (it does wheel but moving it on carpet or stairs is still difficult). I have a very large sized bedroom, and it will normally heat the whole room up within 20 minutes. The oil smells a bit strange at first but I don't notice the smell at all anymore. I haven't figured out how to use the timer (haven't really tried as my schedule is unpredictable) so I can't review that aspect but overall I am very impressed.

Good heater but don't think the thermastat is working and it suddenly turns from "auto" to "manual" from time to time so wasting power. Will give it another week and may ask for a replacement.

Arrived very promptly, much appreciated gift for daughter's family living in a house which needed gutting before redevelopment. Well packaged, easy to assemble and presently in constant use!
