DRY SOON Heated Airer

As Convenient as It Gets

This lightweight model from Dry Soon is capable of holding up to 15 kg of washed clothes at a time. Fortunately, the 3-tier design of the rack allows placing quite a lot of washing without sacrificing the space in the room. The overall drying area of 21 metres makes it easy to dry even the largest pieces of clothing with relative ease.

Easy to fold, this electric clothes dryer can be reduced in size up to 9 cm deep making it easy to store pretty much everywhere, saving both free space in the house and your time.

Moving on, the unit's power includes an electric heating element that requires 300 W of power in order to run properly. In addition to that, the kit is equipped with a 1.3-metre power cable, so in case you need to place the unit away from the socket you will need a cable extender.

As for the convenience features, the unit has a handy timer you can set up to turn off the heating when needed. Alternatively, you can set it to turn on if you plan on drying clothes from separate wash cycles.

All in all, the Dry Soon indoor electric dryer will be a solid choice when space is limited and you can’t just wait for hours for your laundry to dry on its own. Light, economical, and efficient - it is a great pick for both renters and owners of smaller flats.

Lakeland Heated Indoor Airer

An Essential Drying Rack

This heated indoor airer has all the features it needs to be an essential device for drying your wet clothes. First of all, with a weight of only 5.5 kg, this Dry:Soon model from Lakeland still is surprisingly stable when it comes to storing a large amount of clothes at the same time. This is achieved thanks to the special design that provides enough room for any type of clothing and garments. The frame materials are light yet robust, providing just enough stability even for heavy clothes or towels. With that in mind, the maximum load capacity of the airer is 15 kg, which should be enough to accommodate a full basket of washed clothes.

In case you don’t have a lot of washed clothes to dry you can use only one part of the dryer to save even more space. This way, the laundry will be dry in no time and you won’t have to fully assemble the unit - one side will be more than enough for this task. The construction also makes it easy to deploy the side arms to increase the overall capacity and retract them when needed. The overall capacity of the drying rack with all arms retracted reaches 21 metres, which should suffice to dry a basket full of freshly washed clothes.

Wrapping things up, this rack from Lakeland is one of the best-heated clothes airer units in the medium price range and it will be a great alternative for standard washing lines and radiator airers.

HOMEFRONT Electric Heated Clothes Airer

A Great Alternative to Tumble Drying

Forget about bulky tumble and wire dryers, with this handy airer you will be able to accommodate all of your wet laundries without too much hassle. Unlike many other similar models in the same price range, this electric clothes airer features a special sleeve that you can put over the heater itself. Once assembled, the EcoDry heated airer and cover provide enough insulation to keep the constant temperature underneath it to dry your washing in just a few hours.

The only issue with this model is that it is rather short. The 1-metre power cord doesn’t leave too much room for imagination when you try to decide where to place the dryer itself. So, in case your house is rather big, an extension cord will be a necessity.

When it comes down to specifications, the aluminium frame of the dryer combined with the reinforced plastic joints makes the 7.3 kg unit exceptionally stable yet easy to move at the same time. Moving on, the heating element is fairly economical and won’t consume too much power when connected to the mains electrical system.

If you are looking for a versatile electrical dryer that provides you with quick and efficient drying and great drying capacity, then this model from Homefront will be a prime pick.

What Is a Heated Clothes Airer?

When drying your clothes outside is simply not an option you may opt for indoor dryers. But what if standard drying racks are simply not effective enough? Fortunately, there are heated clothes airers that will make your clothes dry in just a few hours.

Although it is more of a passive way to dry your washing, the electric airers are more energy efficient compared to fully-fledged tumble dryers. Unlike regular airers, the heated models allow drying your washing twice as fast using simple heating elements that consume little power (compared to electric radiators, for example).

The heated dryer racks are more efficient and economical, compared to drying your clothes over regular radiators. These devices utilise active heating compared to passive heat from the radiators resulting in clothes drying faster with hot air coming from the bars.

If free space is not one of your biggest concerns we recommend taking a look at the top tumble dryer devices that will dry your washing in a matter of minutes. Additionally, you may also be interested in rotary washing lines that are great for outdoor drying during warmer months.
