Not so sure ....”
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.

A note from the team: 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.
3 tier dry soon”
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.

A note from the team: 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 :)

OK after I got the hang of it!”
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.

Wish I'd bought one sooner!”
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

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. We've passed your suggestions on to our buying team.
This arrived last week and since then I've completely caught up with the washing. Laundry box empty, beds all changed and clean towels in bathroom. I can do a full wash load in the evening and dry it overnight. By morning most stuff is dry enough to fold and put away. I should have paid more attention to the dimensions though, as even folded flat it's a large item to store in a small house like mine. Perhaps I could have gone for the smaller version. But how lovely not to have damp washing all over the place for days on end - and all for less than 50p a load!

I recently treated myself to the 3 tier Dry-soon airier but I have to say that I am very disappointed with it. Like many other reviewers I found that it took so long to even partially dry my washing, despite using the Dry-soon cover that I bought at the same time. As so many others said, the clothes on the bottom tier did not dry and it has taken 3 days to dry my towels. We are a two persons household so we do not have an excessive amount of laundry so how anyone with a larger family copes with one I am at a loss to understand. Sorry Lakeland, this goes back tomorrow!

Bought this for my daughter who shares a house in London. They previously dried their laundry on radiators etc . This excellent piece of kit has made a massive difference to them though I do think it's a bit pricey as very simple technology!

I got one of these for Christmas (yes I asked for one) and with a newborn baby it's been amazing !! I live in a flat so have no outdoor space, heating is via storage heaters so not a consistent heat and also space being limited. I can put a load of washing on this and it's dry over night and it's cheap to run. Folds up neatly when not it use and lightweight to move around

Great, speedy airer”
I purchased this to help with extra laundry duty for washable nappies and I use it for everything. It has a huge amount of surface area and can handle a large load of washing. It does take up a bit of space but the large footprint is worth how quickly it gets through the drying. I don't think I will use my tumble dryer again except for sheets! The only small niggle is that I wish two of the sides were open and not bound by the support frame, making it easier to hang long items. But the lightweight nature of the airer requires support and this is fine. Another great Lakeland product!

Good purchase for winter drying”
I realise that £90 is a bit pricey for a dryer, but faced with months of cold and wet weather I decided it was this or weeks of damp washing hanging around! I am very glad that I made the decision to purchase. The airer is easy to use and heats quickly and evenly. It is great for sheets and duvet covers (particularly good for these). Definitely cuts drying time and is a good alternative to the expensive use of the tumble dryer. A worthwhile investment purchase.

I highly recommend the 3 tier heated airer. I don't have room for a tumble dryer and struggle with drying clothes, especially in winter. The heated airer works great and fits a whole load of washing. I put it on in morning and by evening everything is completely dry. It is big but does fold down to make it easy to store. I would recommend getting the mesh shelves to go with it, I put underwear and socks on these to give me more room on main airer.

Better than expected”
Having already seen the 3 tier electric airer, I bought one this week. It was well packed and easy to carry - albeit a little large to fit in the car - go for home delivery! It easily held a full machine load, would hold at least double the quantity. The washing was a mix of jumpers and towels, and was dry really quickly. I am delighted with this purchase and have already recommended it !

For 7 people this airer copes well. I am doing between 1 and 3 wash loads a day and tumble only sheets and towels. It is in an unheated garage with a dehumidifier beside it and I would recommend this to everyone. Everything I put on it dries in 12 hrs even thick denim and school kilts (hanger on the top rail and the skirt hangs down between the lower rails.) You must remember that when you are drying clothes the water must go somewhere. I empty the dehumidifier about once a day, and it usually has a couple of litres in it. I have a rail above the airer which I hang shirts, blazers etc on.

After spending years having clothes constantly on the radiators throughout the winter months I finally invested in one of these airers. I'm so glad I did, my foster son has special needs and gets through so many changes of clothes each day. At least one of these will be his school uniform which cannot be tumble dried. Thanks to this Airer I have now finally caught up with my washing. I have read some of the negative reviews and just wanted to state this isn't a tumble dryer yes it takes time to dry your clothes but your radiators are free to keep your home warm.

I THING THIS AIRER SHOULD HAVE A TOMER SWITCH.VERY EASY TO LEAVE ON FOR DAYS.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We'd recommend switching the rocker switch off after each use or alternatively using a timer switch from the plug socket if you are wanting use the airer at specific times.
Excellent piece of kit”
I have had my electric airer from Lakeland for many years and I reckon its one of the best things I have bought. I would highly recommend this to anyone struggling to get washing dry during the winter months.
