And are they any good. Considering one for the utility room for delicates and wet coats etc

I don't have one but have just got back from a holiday in Finland where we had one in our suite. It was fab. If you find any, let me know. A swift Google has only come up with Maytags here. The one we used was a Hotpoint.

I wanted one but by the time we finished the utility room JLP had stopped selling the Maytag one.

I've lusted after the Maytag one for aaaages. Can't believe JL aren't selling it anymore. It seems like a fab idea to me though OP! Let us know if you get one!

How do they compare to a tumble dryer on electricity use?

We just have enough space in a cupboard which houses the boiler (and hot water pipes). Just enough room for a standing drying rail plus a fixed rail above head height for hanging shirts etc. Can hold 2 wash loads easily and things usully dry within a few hours with just the retained warm from when the boiler is on.

DH informs me it was an Electrolux, not Hotpoint.

v costly though!
this company was recommended by the man who mended my cooker after I was bemoaning the shocking cost of spares and how it's often not economical to mend appliances. They have 10 yr parts and labour guaruntee. But I guess a drying cabinet shouldn't breakdown anyway.
According to them, it's more economical than a tumbler (but not as much as drying outside)

I have a Peko drying cabinet in my utility room which I love. Great for stuff that can't go in the tumble drier, drying shirts in on hangers, wet coats etc.

My parents have one, it's fabulous for drying coats / boots and other wet outdoor gear as well as for laundry - even has cool wee stalks to dry gloves etc. I would love one but it was expensive and we've got a warm boiler room with a pulley so it's hard to justify unfortunately

We have this one at home and its great:

Our tumble dryer broke a while ago so we bought this as an alternative. I think its much better as you can put everything in there (even coats) and nothing shrinks. also as far as I was told by peko it uses less energy than a tumble dryer ...

We don’t have the room for one of these in our utility, so we use a dehumidifier next to clothes on an airier - seems to work really well and keeps damp washing out of the main house.

I’ve just treated my two kids who live in separate flats in London to heated air driers from Lakeland. I bought ones that run at 6p an hour but there are smaller ones for 4p an hour. You are recommended to buy a cover that zips over the entire airer for the best results. They are pleased with them as it means an end to endless days of wet washing hanging around that never smells as fresh as washing dried in a tumble drier. Easily packed away too.

Aftershock or Megan, can I ask a question please. The Peko website says the cabinet needs to be attached to a wall...that won't work for where I want to put it. Do either of you just have it free-standing? Thanks
