To ask what the best heated clothes dryer is?

We have a lot of washing in our house. We do have a tumble dryer but only use it for bedding, towels, underwear etc.
All our tops, jeans, jackets etc get dried on the clothes horse. We have seen lots of adverts for heated clothes Airer's and thought it would be great for the winter months.
Has anyone got any recommendations?

@TheLastStarfighter

I nearly bought one last year, but read so many reviews about them melting or setting fire which worries me.

*@CaraDuneRedux @user1471590586* do you have a link?

www.aldi.co.uk/easy-home-dehumidifier/p/801922398789400 looks out of stock at the moment. I think dehumdifiers cost around 10p an hour to run. I just use it to dry my washing.

I have the deluxe Lakeland with cover. Hands down I love it BUT I don’t bother using it for heavy things like jeans.

Dehumidifier here too. It has a laundry setting and in just a few hours can dry two airers worth of washing including hoodies and jeans. Super cheap to run too compared to our tumble dryer.
We had had one for at least 6 years and it finally gave up the ghost. Within a few days I had to replace it, I was really lost without it!

I've got the AMOS Eezy Dry pro which is like a Dri Buddy but a better shape, as the Dri Buddy kept falling over. It's brilliant, it dries a machine load in less than 2 hours and really cuts down on ironing time

Another vote for a dehumidifier. We have an 8 litre Meaco one. As previous posters have said, it's incredible how much moisture comes out of clothes when they are drying which would otherwise go into your house.

They work best in a small room with the door and window closed (this is essential as otherwise it'll try to dehumidify the air coming in from outside). Mine can dry a clothes airer's worth of washing within a day and it avoids the slightly damp, not sure whether something is properly dry feeling.
