When is a timer not really a timer?
on 25 November 2013
I cannot fathom why Delonghi's product designers would take a perfectly useful feature on their Dragon-3 range and leave it out of their Dragon-4 heaters. They have decided to leave out a proper timer feature, and what they call a timer is really just a delayed start. So for example, if you want the heater to come on at 10pm every night and turn off at 7am, you're out of luck (unless you want to count the number of hours until 10pm every time you wake up).
The Dragon-4 heaters with model numbers ending in "T" still have a manual timer, but the inability to maintain a set temperature. The models ending in "ER" can maintain a set temperature, but have no timer feature. Which to choose?
Perhaps best to wait for the Dragon-5 range once Delonghi have "redeployed" their shortsighted Dragon-4 designers.
