I bought this airer last autumn, and it was constantly in use. Like a previous reviewer I have found that your clothes dry a lot quicker if you cover it but took on board the Lakeland comments about condensation etc, and a cover not being recommended. I have solved this by making a cover out of sheeting. The fabric is lightweight and porous enough for any rising steam from the airer to evaporate through the cover rather than condense, but still traps sufficient heat around the clothes to speed up the drying process.

So handy in winter”
by Ms CUNNINGHAM
This drier is so handy in winter especially if you life in a flat with no balcony as we do. I find, when covered, it dries clothes overnight. As recommended in some of the reviews, I tend to layer my clothes flat on the drier and I find this works better than hanging them on the slats. It does feel a bit wobbly but so far as stood the test of time. Have recommended it to a number of my friends.

well worth the money”
I don't have a tumble dryer and with two small children it's a nightmare when it's raining to get everything dry. So i decided to buy one, i was a bit worried about the price but i thought if it's going to make my life easier then go for it. And i'm glad i did, it's great. I managed to get two loads of washing (mostly childrens clothes) onto the airer and they dried overnight. The only things that were still a little damp were items with a waist band. The clothes on the bottom tier took longer as there is no heat coming up from the bottom. Only downside the electric cable isn't very long.

OK i suppose but a little disappointed”
I bought this product about a month ago and it was a considered purchase for me. Most of the reviewers are right, the only way to get anything dry is to cover it over, (i use a duvet king size duvet cover) even then most of the clothing is only about half dry after 10 hours. In order to get light jumpers etc nearly dry you must spread them out across the bars rather than hanging them vertically. Real shame really as I had high hopes for this !

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review and we're sorry to hear you've been disappointed with this product. We'll be in touch soon to help. We wouldn't recommend covering the airer as this may cause condensation which could result in your floors becoming damp.
3 tier heated airer”
I'm really happy with the airer it dries everything as long as its loaded evenly I must say I haven't felt the need to cover it over

Got mine in a charity shop!!”
by R Fox
I didn't realise how expensive the Dry soon three tier driers are. I bought mine a charity shop for just £10.00!! I wouldn't be without mine particularly now that our weather is getting wetter and wetter. I find most of my laundry dries overnight, jeans and some knitwear takes a little longer but everything still smells fresh and ready to press. I'm not keen on the idea of covering the drier with sheets or duvet slips in case condensation gets into the electrics and also, as stated by Lakeland, it could make the floor damp and cause damage to floors.

well worth the cost”
I refuse to have a tumble dryer, but having taken on looking after a holiday cottage, we decided to get the heated tower airer to avoid having sheets bedecking the house, especially with the awful weather we have been having! It has exceeded expectations. It takes double duvets folded as well as fitted sheets and towels. The sheets are virtually dry by the morning and the affect on our electricity bill is negligible. I would like a cover for when it is not in use and maybe when it is in use to keep the heat in, but not sure if this would cause condensation.

I have one of these and recommended them to many of my friends who are not disappointed. It is really adaptable to your space and laundry needs. I put a timer on the plug just in case I forget to turn it off and it constantly has washing drying on it. Even the cat likes it as he lies beneath it.

This review is for an older version of this product
Just brilliant & 100% recommended”
We've recently moved but have no outside line. Only a small patio which doesn't dry things easily/quickly - no sun/wind. Our longhaired german shepherd has a skin condition requiring monthly baths. Washing/drying towels (at least 12 large + other bedding) was becoming a nightmare ... especially alongside normal washing. I bought several airers whilst looking at other options Then I saw this in a Lakeland store. I went home, read the reviews & bought it. It's JUST BRILLIANT & exactly what all other reviews say about it (especially covering it with a sheet). 100 % HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Reviewing after over 2 years of use”
by Mr Maguire
Bought this airer over 2 years ago and it is fantastic. After much experimentation we hang all the shirts and tops on hangers and hang them to dry with just the bottom shelf open so the top two shelves hang down. Put a sheet over the top and they are dry in no time. A quick shake and fold (no ironing). Have to admit we still tumble underwear and jeans and towels - but that is personal choice and not because they wouldn't dry on the airer. We have turned off the heater in the bedroom we use because the airer heats it and it balances out the cost of its use. Fantastic item!

Excellent heated airer!”
This product is superb. It dries clothes in no time at all and I wouldn't be without it! I put a sheet over the top of it and I don't have a problem with condensation. I find that's the best way to dry clothes. It's very effective and a star product - would highly recommend it to all!

We bought one of these as a wedding present for our friends and they raved about it so much we ended up getting one for ourselves. I am so glad we did! It is fantastic, and I put a washing on it in the morning and it will be dry by the evening. I haven't felt the need to cover it with anything at all and it dries everything I have put on it perfectly.

Best product ever!!”
I am absolutely thrilled with this purchase..bought it for my fella to dry his clothes in in his flat and was a bit dubious at first as it was a bit girly. After setting it up, plugging it in and placing the clothes on the airer, they were dry (not just damp) but dry within about 4 hrs. Slightly expensive to begin with but worth every penny. He now looks forward to doing the washing and now knows the electric bill won't take a hammering with the tumble dryer. Would totally recommend to anyone!!

Seriously good drying kit”
Have been using this product for over a year now having done the usual hanging clothes by radiators, blasting in the dryer and even using a dehumidifier with airer in the depths of winter. This product replaces all other methods for drying anything from denim to cashmere and does it economically and overnight. Works best with a cover - I made one from curtain lining and have never had a problem with condensation on the floor, even in a cool tiled conservatory. Perhaps Lakeland could consider a light fabric fitted cover like mine?

I really worried about purchasing this item, as it was between this and replacing our tumble dryer. However, I am pleased to report that I have had the item over a month now and have not regretted my purchase. I have two small children, so I have used it at least twice a week. A full load will go comfortably on the airer, which I have on overnight and by the morning everything has been dry. I have had no problems with damp or condensation on the floor, and the washing as it heats up smells lovely - which is a nice bonus for a'clean freak' like myself! Buy it, you will not regret it.

would buy again”

If mine broke tomorrow I'd be straight out to buy another one, dries a load of washing overnight.

This airer is amazing. We are a family of 4 who create lots of washing from football, dog walking and running. It dries washing overnight, without being covered (don't understand why other reviews suggest covering it, it works fine) and I rarely use my tumble dryer now. Highly recommend it.

Great clothes airer/dryer-highly recommended!”
I have quite a damp flat, and no tumble dryer and if I ever did say 5 loads of washing in my flat was like a chinese laundry and it took about 4/5 days to dry it all. Not so with this machine! Dries most clothes overnight, sometimes over 2 days for bigger things, and because they dry so quick if you fabric conditioner they smell so fresh when dried! It's also great for drying socks as these dry very quickly. The airer also heats the room up & although big can be folded up and stored away. I wish Lakeland did a cover for this product but I highly recommend it!

A note from the team: We're pleased to hear you're happy with the Heated Tower Airer however please note our Buying team have asked us NOT to recommend covering the airer as this may cause condensation which could result in your floors becoming damp/damaged.
This product is just about faultless. Our house does not have central heating and through winter drying had become a nightmare. We got this with some money from our wedding and it has been the best thing we have bought to date. I pop the washing in after tea, pop it over the airer at bedtime and when I get up in the morning it is dry. It folds nice and flat for storage and warms up quickly when you need it. I often just plug it in for my towels to warm up on when I am having a bath. The downside - I can't keep on top of the ironing, see, just about faultless!!

Heated Airer. Fantastic buy!”
by Lorraine Cole
I had been struggling with getting my washing dry all winter and even resorted to the laundrette on one occasion. My Mum told me about this airer and bought it for me as a present. It really is fantastic! I can leave it on while I'm at work and know that my washing will be dry by the evening. The novelty still hasn't worn off yet that I am finally on top of the washing. Definitely recommend this product.
