A cheaper alternative to the Lakeland heated clothes airer

Does one exist?
The only thing I've seen is this which looks nowhere near as substantial.

I think I need something in between the two...

Ow much is the Lakeland one? There's a £5 off voucher around at the moment, which is a start......

timelytess Sat 07-Nov-15 20:07:47

Get the real thing. I love mine.

cheapandcheerful Sat 07-Nov-15 20:08:46

The Lakeland one is £90...

cheapandcheerful Sat 07-Nov-15 20:12:56

Ooh stillno - where can I find the £5 off voucher?

I got an Aldi one a couple of years ago which is still going well.

Actually, looking at the link, it's the same one. It's fine.

StillNoFuckingEyeDeer Sat 07-Nov-15 20:15:27

I saw it in my mums good food magazine. That usually means it'll be in a few of the Sunday papers and other magazines too.
Maybe post on the vouchers/codes topic or have a sneaky flick in the newsagent?

I second the Aldi one. The only problem of course is waiting for them to come into stock & you never know when that will be.

cheapandcheerful Sat 07-Nov-15 20:16:25

Ahhh I'm just going to order it before dh changes his mind!

I was in Aldi yesterday and they had a load of them, £30!

I'm happy with my Robert Dyas one but I did want the long one with wings iyswim. Lakeland do one that shape but much more expensive

There is nothing better than the Lakeland one. Fact.

They're awesome. Pay the money. You won't regret it!

Davros Sun 08-Nov-15 23:35:47

blush should have looked at the link first. Mine is like that, I need that shape for where it's positioned. I had a £5 off Robert Dyas, glad I got it and not the bulky square Lakeland one but it depends where you want to put it

I have the one you linked, it's pretty good.

My Aldi also had them in on Friday.

persepolis123 Sun 08-Nov-15 23:40:43

I also have the one you linked to and I'm happy with it. It fits a surprising amount of clothes on there and you can fold it away when not in use so it doesn't take up much space.

Silly question but doesn't it just dry the clothes faster where it's heated? So if you hang a t shirt on it there's a dry strip for ages where it touches?

Grittzio Mon 09-Nov-15 10:09:49

Top tip is to throw a sheet over the heated airer, wet clothes on at night will be dry in the morning, if you don't then yes it drys with stripes, but I have the Lakeland one and once you get used to it it's fab, shirt's or anything which can go on a hanger go round the outside or sometimes I only have half the airer open so you can hang shirts off the rail, then you can place trousers or sheets against the vertical heated bars which you haven't opened if that makes sense? Wouldn't be without it.

JoanFerguson Mon 09-Nov-15 11:33:52

I lay things flat on it, about 4 layers and it dries them overnight.

NannyR Mon 09-Nov-15 22:08:38

I'm not that convinced; I can put a wash load on my normal airer (in an unheated bedroom) and it still dries overnight.

scrivette Mon 09-Nov-15 22:19:09

I have the Aldi one as its smaller than the Lakeland one and am pleased with it.

Davros Tue 10-Nov-15 23:13:02

I see it as somewhere to hang clothes to dry that happens to be heated. If I need something dried specially I put very little on it and lay it out then it does dry better
