Brilliant product - expensive to buy but cheap to run. Really useful with our damp British weather. Fantastic for jumpers you want to dry flat. Easy to fold up and hide away when necessary. Minor quibble - I wondered why the on/off switch was so near the ground where small fingers could play about with it. Overall, one of the best items we have ever bought from Lakeland.

I was weighing up the pros and cons of getting a heated airer or a tumble dryer. In short, I should have put the money this cost (and the cover) towards a condenser tumble dryer. Clothes dry if they are in contact with the bars. Anything on the lower tier does not dry, despite the cover being over. Sheets, duvets dry quick. It was left on overnight (22:00-07:00) and most clothes were still not dry. End up shuffling clothes. I'm a little disappointed, I'll probably go out and get a tumble dryer at some point. Maybe an air hole in the top of the cover to allow the moist hot air to escape.
Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry the Airer hasn't worked as well as a tumble dryer. We'll be in touch shortly to help further.

My garden is small and gets no breeze, and my kitchen has no space for a tumble dryer. Using a clothes horse was useless on days when the heating wasn't on. This product has solved my wash-day problems - as long as you use it along with the cover (bought separately), it dries a huge load of washing in very little time. It doesn't get too hot and the vented cover ensures there are no problems with condensation. It is honestly the best gadget I've ever purchased. It would be good if it came with a timer - I bought one to plug it into.

I was a bit sceptical about how this would work but I am delighted with it. My clothes used to take days to dry but now they dry so quickly. It is quite big but very light and folds flat for easy storage. I am really pleased with it. I would recommend it as long as you have space for it.

I waited until I had tried this dryer many times before submitting a review & I can honestly say I am delighted with it. I have dried a full load of washing including jeans & thick shirts overnight with perfect results. I do have it in bathroom where there is a large radiator but this goes off around 23.00 so it is not that drying washing overnight. I found that covering the whole thing with an old sheet helps a lot too. I know the cord is short but an extension lead sorts that out. I am so glad I bought this item-my tumble dryer is in garage so I no longer have to go outside in rain!

I can't praise this enough! Not only will it dry your clothes quickly it also means i dont need the heating on in the kitchen! I use a blanket over the top to aid drying so the jacket that comes separately must work! A brilliant invention that becomes a friend! No more tumble dry, yipeeee

I purchased this dryer about 4 years ago, I use mine in our conservatory Which is unheated but with a cover over works very well, if drying thicker items don't overload, leaves your clothes soft not hard, lovely for jumpers etc, I have found another use for mine, lay a towel over the rails and use it for proving bread, works really well

This airer stopped my towels and clothes getting that moldy, smelly odour from not being dry enough when they went in the cupboard. Wales is very damp(I am Canadian) and when it rains a lot I sometimes find it difficult to get things dry enough. With the Dry-Soon Airer it is not a problem any longer! It is a real plus! I couldn't do without it now! We bought another one and gave it as a wedding gift. The couple love it!

I am thoroughly disappointed with this product doesn't dry anything even after fast spin and 6 hours on tried laying things across bars which restricts what you can put on. Still takes 9 hours at least so I switch off in disgust. Paid for cover too. Another waste of money.
Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry you're disappointed with the Airer and will be in touch to help shortly. This item is a heated Airer and will not dry as quickly as a radiator or tumble dryer. Drying times will vary depending on the sort of clothes placed over the bars and the ambient room temperature. This Airer is an alternative to the traditional non heated Airer.

I paid almost £100 for one of these because generally Lakeland products do what they are advertised to do. Unfortunately this doesn't! It does not dry washing after a normal spin. It took several days and nights to be partly dry and the washing was staring to smell and feel stale. It only dries where the washing touches the bars, so even with washing laid out on it you still have to keep moving it about to get it even partly dry. I never thought I would say this to Lakeland, but it is a total waste of money. I would give it no stars at all if that option was available
Thanks for taking the time to write your review. To aid drying we recommend layering clothes over the bars, but it is an airer and won't dry as quickly as a tumble dryer for instance. I'll be in touch shortly to pout things right.

Good for airing and assisted drying for a couple of small loads of washing. A cover definitely helps drying. Do check the dimensions, as it is big. For the size, I found it a bit flimsy when folded out. The plastic feet on the bottom of the fold out arms were split / unsealed up on the first airer after only one use. The replacement had them split on delivery. Good assisted airing/drying, but too pricey for me for the build quality.

Having read the reviews I thought I'd try it out. I put a wash on with a spin cycle of 1200; my clothes have been drying since 1900 yesterday and still aren't dry (21hrs later). The airer doesn't seem to be very warm at all. When hanging tops with long arms they hang into the below shelf and clothes so if I fold them back up, the armpits take longer to dry, as do the necks on the polos. I did order the cover which is yet to arrive so have reverted back to the radiator. The cord is also very short.
Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry to hear of your disappointment and we'll be in touch shortly to help. Clothes will dry quicker if you layer then across the bars. The length of the flex is due to health and safety regulations.

I would ask anyone to think very carefully before buying this. I am quite disappointed. After 8 hours in use my clothes were only half dry! Actually quicker to dry on a clothes horse in front of radiator. I will keep though for the spring and autumn months when its not cold enough to justify having the heating on.
Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry for the disappointment and will be in touch shortly.To aid drying we recommend layering clothes over the bars, but it is an airer and won't dry as quickly as a tumble dryer. The airer is a much gentler heat which whilst protecting the fibres of your clothes and be cost effective at 6p per hour, can take a little longer to dry on heavier items which may not suit your needs for a speedy drying solution.

I have had one of these airer before , in fact there is nothing wrong with it i am giving my one , to a friends daughter for her flat , and i am buying a new one because i wanted the cover to go over it although the last one i use to use a single quilt , which made dryer things quicker but made the dryer shakey as the quilt was a bit heavy ,since i found lakeland cover i have decided to purchase the cover and replace my airer as i said before i have had my old one for almost 3 years without problems , i have decided to purchase a new one , wish the flex was longer the only negative point

Wonderful item, managed to dry a huge load of washing overnight, with no "damp patches" anywhere. Ok, it might be possible to dry your washing over radiators etc., somewhat faster - but looking at the 6p an hour promise, and the fact that you don't have random bits of damp washing all over your radiators, it's an absolute wonder! I am very pleased with this item, and along with the cover that can be bought with it, it's an all over winner for me :)

I was hugely excited when I bought this item! For the first washload I simply hung everything over the bars and switched on overnight. I was disappointed that, next morning, most things hadn't dried. However, Lakeland staff suggested I tried layering clothes flat over the bars. I'm pleased to say that this works much better. I would definitely say that this is the only way to use the bottom layer of the airer. Overall I feel I will get a lot of use out of this item and that it will be helpful.

I have just bought a second 3 tier dryer for my daughter which speaks volumes in itself. I advise using a folded sheet to cover the clothes whilst drying. I'm sure the cover sold separately may well do that too but I decided not to go to the expense. Another tip, put larger items at the top. It would be useful to have a tips provided by manufactuer as instructions are basic and fairly obvious.

This has more hanging space than our three old racks combined, takes up much less space overall, and dries clothes in just a few hours instead of three days! A built-in timer would have been a welcome feature, so that it could be switched on for, say, just 3 hours overnight instead of having to leave it on all night and then remember to switch it off before leaving for work in the morning. It has a few little nuances, but it's far better than racks whose plastic coating cracks and chips off, which fall over silently, and which often leave clothes smelling musty. Overall, highly recommended!

very pleased with my airer although the flex could do with being longer,also the cover purchased with it could do with 2 way zips on the front and back enabling easier access to top 2 tiers without having to bend to unzip and roll up the front cover and even remove it to access the back tiers
