Rated 3 out of 5 by jonjon Has design issues.
I bought this after the recent QVC presentation after seeing previously and thought it looked too good to be true but this time decided to give it a go.
Plus points... very lightweight and easy and quick to assemble so it only takes up space as and when it needed. Would appear very inexpensive to run.
Now not so plus points!
The clothes have to be in direct contact with the bars in order for clothes to dry. So as I found with clothes like cotton that retain a lot of water even after a 1300 spin but still remain damp, they don't dry. I dried just four pairs of leggings and after 6 hours only the parts in direct contact with the bars were dry!
Also the position of the support bars where the shelves are clipped are placed at the side but in the middle of the shelves so you cannot place clothes on them place clothes unless they are very small items.
This means that although the product is claimed to have a huge amount of drying space in reality you cannot dry a vast amount of washing at any time and certainly NOT a full machine load.
I think this product may be useful for where there is only a small amount of washing but absolutely useless in my opinion for a family wash.
Finally there is no timer on the dryer so once its switched on it's very easy to forget about it being on and then it does not become economical.
For these reasons I have not found this product to does what it claims and will be being returned as it has not lived up to expectations.

So pleased I purchased this for my daughter. She lives in a flat and can't have a tumble drier. Normally her washing is festooned all over the place on several normal airers, bedding towels etc take days to dry properly, not with this. All washing now in one place and dries quickly especially with the cover on, she can dry items flat now too and use at half capacity if required. Folds flat so storage not a problem.

Never thought I would wax lyrical about a clothes dryer!! This dryer, cover and shelf combo works very effectively. For example a load of washing put on the dryer overnight is dry by morning. Watch out for wee damp corners on items placed on the outer bits of the rack. I find that the washing on the inside is perfectly dry, you just take those off and move the outer bits inside for a couple of hours. Excellent buy. You need to experiment with it - for example I found that a king size cotton flannel duvet cover dried best draped over the top without the cover. I havent recommended as a gift as I am sure that no-one really wants a dryer as a gift but it is a great product

Does exactly what it is meant to, the only reason I gave it 4 stars is it could do with a longer lead. As I dont have an airing cupboard I pop my ironing in there for an hour just to make sure it is completely dry. Would recommend to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dawncloud2 Found another use for it
As well as drying clothes, I aim to use it to heat a small narrow rear hall that does not have a radiator but needs the chill taking off it overnight. Of course it is an indulgence to run it without drying anything but cheaper and safer than an electric fire. Only gave 4 stars because Lakeland box arrived open at one end, and I still haven't found an invoice. Fortunately the cover and 2xnets had not come out. Funny odd that the nets were not in their boxes. Wondered if it was a returns as the top bar has a slight kink in it, but this could have done during delivery. It replaces my tumbledrier out in the garage so I won't have to traipse out in the cold. I have the other similar type of clothes airer (the green one) that is not electrically heated but shall keep that for outdoor use.

Received this item as an early xmas pressie from my mum, I've never had a tumble drier and every winter I have to make do with a normal airer and wait days for clothes to dry!! Not anymore, this item is a godsend I put some clothes on overnight and by morning they were all dry especially when used with its cover!! Really cheap to run as well!! No more covering radiators and cranking the heating up!!! LOVE IT!!!!

I was delighted when QVC started to sell Lakeland products.
I ordered the airer straight away.
Best decision ever.
I have a washing machine, but no space for a spin dryer.
This dries my clothes quickly, including jeans. No more damp clothes over radiators. No damp rooms.
Best investment ever.
