good sizes airer”
by Mrs Blackstone
This is very lightweight and heats up quickly. It took a long time to dry towels but I see it is suggested that the airer is covered with a sheet - will try that. I am concerned about the flimsy plastic hook attachments which you need to move each time you collapse/erect the airer; I do not see how they can last for long. At £99 I would have thought it possible to use metal hooks.

Would be 5 star with a longer flex”
by Ms King
This is really good, but flexibility is limited by the length of the flex, and the fact that it emanates from the bottom of the airer (most kitchen plug sockets being above worktop height). It is toddler proof in that it doesn't get hot enough to burn if grabbed. It is very lightweight, and can be pulled about easily.

Worse than nothing”
This dryer would be a joke if it weren't for the fact that I purchased it because I needed a space-saving solution to drying 2 babies clothes in a small flat. Clothes dry on the top 2 tiers IF you space them so you're using only every other bar AND if you cover the whole thing with a duvet cover and leave it on overnight for a minimum of 10 hours. Even then, clothes on the bottom tier will still be damp! I hate this dryer with a passion every time I use. I have just turned it off after 20 HOURS and the clothes on the bottom are STILL DAMP! DON'T BUY IT, you're better with an old concertina one

Every household should have one”
The thought of damp or tumble shrunk washing is a thing of the past. This is the best concept ever and every accommodation without outdoor drying facilities should have one. I am about to purchase my 5th rack, not as a replacement, but to give to another student relative as a moving in present. They agree that this will prevent their previous creative indoor hanging lines. Using this rack means no crumpled radiator dried clothes, minimal ironing and guaranteed overnight drying even jeans and sports kits, for a low cost. Couldn't be without mine. Rainy days no longer matter

This has not lived up to my expectations. I find that the only part of the clothes that become dry are the parts touching the bars of the dryer and the rest remains damp. I covered it with a duvet cover and this helped but I find it just as easy to hang clothes on radiator airers. Another thing that I think would help with this would be if it was in wheels as I find it difficult to move around the house when clothes are on it. Sorry Lakeland.

My clothes have never been drier!”
by Mr Kay
Can’t believe how I coped without this product! It’s filled a maiden shaped hole in my life, and surpassed all my expectations! I’m now searching for more clothes to wash!!

excellent product, perhaps a little too expensive”
This really works well. Jeans, jumpers and sheets dry overnight. The only issue I have is that it is expensive even for such a good product.

I love my new airer. After reading the reviews on here I was cautious about the performance but right from the first wash load it hasn't disappointed. I can put almost a full wash load on it in an evening and it's dry by the time I wake up the next morning. I don't cover it as some posters have suggested but it is in a heated spare room and I always drape each item of clothing over 2 racks rather than a single one - this allows warm air to circulate the clothing more easily. Although this reduces the amount of drying space it definitely reduces drying time. It's just what I wanted!

hanging out to dry”
I have been drying my washing on the radiators for some time which is very expensive. I was going to purchase a tumble dryer and asked a friend for some advice. He said why don't I buy a heated airer which is far cheaper. We bought it and I started to hang the washing with mixed results and then decided to do one wash at a time and fold the washing flat on the shelves. The washing dries within a day. I know Lakeland does not recommend covering the airer because of condensation but I noticed the walls became wet if a sheet was not put over it. This is an excellent item. All the best Martin

I read all the reviews which were very mixed before I bought this product. I live alone in a flat and love this dryer. It folds away taking no more room than my old unheated airer. It's lightweight and effective. If my family were still here it would probably be on constantly. I'm sure I'll use it more during bad summer weather when there's no heating on. A very good purchase.

I purchased this heated tower airer for my son last winter and he says its one of the best presents I've ever bought him. After hearing his praises I have treated myself to one this winter and have not been disappointed! Cheaper than using the tumble dryer too!

We bought this item about 6 months ago and we love it. We live in a flat with out central heating, so during the winter having this on for our clothes and taking the nippy edge of the cold is perfect. It may not be built as strong as we first hoped, but it is flexible, so with anything just needs looking after so it can last. It folds away nicely and can take 2 loads of 8 kg washing if folded properly. You have the option to only use half of it or open all of it or even hang the bed sheets over it. We find clothes tend to dry within 24 hours at a low cost. Very happy. Thank you

I found I needed to use a sheet to cover the airer to increase the heat. otherwise only warm. No condensation with room door open Clothes need to lie flat on rungs. If hung over rungs, only clothes touching rungs get dry. Dries in about 8 hours. Clothes need turning and redistributing occasionally. Good for jumpers etc. Temptation to just throw stuff into the tumble drier! However, a good buy, if a little expensive and would recommend.

I have owned one of these for about… three years, I think. It's still working fantastically well - and I think it's pretty much permanently on every night! VERY highly recommended.

After reading the reviews for this airer i decided to order one. It is brilliant!! I do have a tumble dryer but its expensive to run and we have lots of stuff that cant be tumble dried. I dried 2 loads of washing overnight. Tip - load it from the bottom rack, up!!

I bought this for my daughter-in-law a couple of years ago as living in a very small first floor flat with no garden, she was reduced to draping everything on radiators and furniture for days! It was an instant success and even more so since the arrival of my grandson! Even though it's perhaps a little pricey, the quality and ability to do the job pays for itself in no time and I would highly recommend this product. Well done, yet again, Lakeland.

Couldn't manage without it.”
Bought this three tier dryer several years ago and I would not be without it especially at the moment with the strong winds. It is even better if you encase the whole dryer in a cotton duvet, washing dries even quicker. I know it is not the cheapest item but it is well worth it. Thanks Lakeland.

Great concept but falls down on design! The rungs are far too close together so I find it very awkward and time consuming to poke the laundry through and place on the dryer. It also takes up more space than I anticipated. However my daughter who has no airing cupboard at all loves this product. All in all I think there has to be room for an improved design. My husband insisted I would love this in preference to an old fashioned ceiling airer. Wrong!

A note from the team: Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I'll be happy to pass your comments on about the design.
I really had to persuade my Husband that we 'needed' this, so glad I did. It is the best £100 I have ever spent. With four adults in the house wash days were a nightmare - now a washer load of clothes is dry in 24 hours. Thank you so much Lakeland.

Like the curates egg 'good in parts'”
This is a good drier. Cover it with a COTTON sheet (not poly cotton), to dry quicker-no condensation as suggested. However, it uses 300w, if you leave it on overnight, as suggested in reviews - 12 hours = 3.6Kw, or 54p. A tumble drier purchased in the last 5 years is efficient. We have software that shows usage by appliance. Ours is 2.7kW and uses this for 10-20 minutes to get to temperature and then uses 500W with occasional boosts. A 1.5 hour tumble rarely uses more than 2- 3kW 30-45p maximum! Tumbling is therefore cheaper with no washing clutter.

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review and sharing your costing from your suppliers tariff. We do appreciate tumble dryers will dry clothing at a higher temperature much quicker. For those who don't have a tumble dryer the airer is a good alternative and ideal in airing delicate items.
