Saw the Dry-Soon and opted for that; cheaper, quieter, and some gentle heat. Arrived very quickly 3 days max - easy to unpack and really simple to understand. There are concerns expressed about the sturdiness or lack of it with this dryer frame and yes I do have 'some' reservations about its long term usefulness. That said it is for drying clothes and not a table or a climbing frame! it is said to support 15kgs of damp washing which I guess would be about the maximum weight of washing once spun (from a 7-9 kg wash load?)
Erection ( oooh missis!!) is straightforward but the small plastic clips that support the drying racks are probably the first to get broken I suspect so take care and set it up gently! - it can easily be set for a full all round drying rack or a half (back to wall) option which is a useful and neat touch. Storing the dryer is a simple reverse of the setting up; but again watch those support clips. With the rack set up it is simply plugged into a 13amp standard wall socket and switched on. The switch is a translucent white rubber affair that needs a small digit to press it on (ours is a bit sunken in tbh) but nevertheless works positively and glows.
Does it Work? - our first outing included boys jeans, men's cords, 2 large towels and a few smalls.Read more ›
My first wash I hung all the washing as shown in the pictures and they was bit drying.
The second wash I put washing over the bars and limited how much I put on ie I did not overload and it dried in around 8 hours.
The 3rd wash I tried the put a sheet over method and my washing was dry within 6 hours.
I do believe if you buy the cover it helps improve the drying time so for that reason I am only giving 4 stars as it that will cost another £30, which I will buy when I have the money.
All in all I am happy and it has saved me alot of time and washing all over the house and I now have an empty basket which has not happened since the summer months.
...the main issue with this device is if you see the illustration, it features clothes hanging down off the unit as per a traditional clothes airer. However, if your clothes are made of material like cotton that adsorbs a fair amount of water - even after a 1200rpm spin - your clothes won't dry very well if hung up that way...all that will happen is that the area of the clothes in contact with the heated bars will dry, and the bits hanging down will remain damp. So, in order to get anything dried quickly, especially heavier items like jeans etc, all of the wet material needs to be in contact with the bars...and that way, you're looking at the whole unit being able to dry maybe 8 items at once...certainly not a full load of washing. Even lighter items like underwear and socks, if it's not all touching the bars, won't be dry after 5 hours of the unit being on...yes I have tried putting a sheet over the whole unit as recommended by people, but this is still the case.
...and that's the other thing. To put a timer on the device would have cost pence. Instead, once it's switched on, it stays on, so if you forget about it, that's $$$ spent.
So, it is worth what is, after all, about 70% of the price of a tumble drier - not really. If you don't have radiators, maybe, otherwise if you have radiators, use a traditional airer.
Its actually great at drying t-shirts and Sweatshirts (except for the sleeves, it somehow avoids sleeves). Almost Useless at drying towels and smalls such as socks and pants.
I dont have mine set up as pictured, I found the best way to use it was to have all the flaps folded down and then use it like a normal radiator. If you drape the clothes over it like pictured, you can fit loads on but they will dry no faster than just air drying. it drys whatever is touching the heated bars, nothing else.
I live in a flat with no outside drying space. I wanted a one stop drying shop for the winter months. I love just hanging clothes in the summer and forgetting about them for a few days then collecting them dry. I thought thats what this device would give me for the winter months. I was wrong, you have to tend to it every 30 minutes to swap out the items. I can get a single washing load mostly dry in one evening with frequent visits, but as I said before; it doesn't do smalls, which is so annoying. I had to have my dehumidifier running as well to collect the moisture and help with the items this thing refuses to dry.
If you have a big family, I can't say i'd recommend this unless you're willing to have it on 24 hours a day. In that instance a tumble dryer would probably work out a lot cheaper. Saying that, tumble dryers do sometimes damage or shrink clothes, this thing is so weak it could never do that, thats another reason I opted for this.
I'm not sorry I bought it, but I could never rave about how good it is. Its simply meh. In hindsight, the central heating system coupled with my dehumidifier was a better solution. I really just wanted a one stop shop and to save money on heating; not sure I got either.
