Best Heated Airer Reviews 2022 UK Electric Clothes Dryer

The most ideal way of drying your wet washing is outdoors, in the sun and with a breeze where it can drip dry gently. However, in the UK with it’s often cold and wet winter months, this isn’t possible for a good portion of the year so we need to turn to indoor alternatives instead.

What we often turn to when needing to go indoors and want quick drying is the tumble dryer, but they often aren’t the best or even possible solution if you are limited on space, need gentle drying for garments or want to save money on electric bills.

A product that resolves these issues and has grown in popularity over the last few years is the heated clothes airer. These come in two varieties (warm air or heated bars) and allow clothes to be dried indoors.

Drying time is not as quick as using a tumble dryer but heated airers provide a cost-effective alternative to tumble dryers, with the wet clothes drying process being a lot shorter than with non heated dryers.

In this buying guide, we take a look at the most popular heated airers available right now, plus the original JML Dri Buddi.

1. JML DriBUDDi Portable Electric Clothes Dryer

The Dri Buddi is a unique clothes airer is unlike any other dryers on this list. It is much gentler on clothes than a standard tumble dryer and it even gets rid of creases, meaning shorter or zero ironing time. The airer also operates very quietly, so you won’t even notice it’s on.

This heated clothes airer is slightly different to other electric clothes airers because you place your clothes and laundry on hangers, attached them to the rails and zip up the side of the heated dryer. Once the drying pod is closed, you simply activate the warm air motor and the drying will begin.

Dri Buddi has the most efficient drying process because of the drying pod and will leave garments feeling crisp and ready to simply fold and put away. It takes wet clothes and turns them in to dry clothes in a speed that would nearly challenge a tumble dryer, while providing gentle drying that won’t damage or shrink your clothes.

It also has a large capacity and can hold up the 10 kilos of damp clothing which is easily a full load or more, and takes up hardly any room or drying space while doing so.

It’s super easy to assemble and can be done in less than 10 minutes, and is even easier to operate. All you do is turn the dial and at once DriBuddi will jump to life and do the rest.

The only downside of the Dri Buddi is that unlike a non heated clothes airer, you will need to use electric to run it. But it doesn’t use a lot of energy and most definitely best heated airer we’ve reviewed.

The biggest benefit of this heated clothes airer is that it is electric, so it dries your clothes quicker, is gentler on your clothes, and can be used inside easier. You’ll also really love the design of this clothes dryer because it is super easy to hang all your laundry up and it doesn’t take up an absurd amount of room.

If you don’t like the way the three tiers are arranged, you can simply change them and with a height of 141cm it’s easy to hang things like towels that require more space. It has 21 meters of drying space and is very lightweight, which makes storing it super easy.

The downside of this airer is that since it is electric, it does cost money to run. However, it is significantly less than a standard tumble dryer and is actually very cheap. The benefits are definitely worth a few pounds worth of electricity; you won’t even notice it on your bill, making this one one of the best clothes airers.

3. Amos Eezy Dry Electric Clothes Dryer

The Amos heated airer is significantly cheaper than the Lakeland models but has a similar design and washing load capacity (15kg). The Amos is similar to the original Dri Buddi in that it dries the clothes by blowing hot air into the covered clothes rails. Clothes are position over 2 tiers and the Amos has a footprint of 70cm by 48cm so doesn’t take up a lot of room.

The Amos does include a number of neat touches though. Its mounted on 4 castor wheels so is easy to move around room plus it can also be folded into a flat position for easy storage (it should fit under a lot of beds).

On the Lakeland Dry:Soon models you have to pay extra for the cover but on the Amos Eezy Dry this is included. The cover also is built into the frame so you don’t have to remove it when storing the dryer away.

This heated airer also has a timer function that ranges between 20 mins and 4 hours and a remote control (this is quite handed as the control are mounted quite close to the floor).

4. Amos 230 Electric Heated Clothes Dryer

This is the second featured product from Amos, however, the 230 is a different design and drying method to the Amos Eezy Dry as it uses heated rails instead of using hot air. 18 drying rails are available so you’ll have plenty of room for your laundry. As this uses heated rails you will need to ensure that your clothes are fully spun before placing on the rack to help with the drying speed.

The Amos 230 is a folding rack type airer and therefore takes or more floor space than the upright heated airers but also at the same time has less drying capacity at 10kg (compared to15kg on most upright models).

This airer is much cheaper than some of the hot air driers though. Features are pretty limited – there is no timer on this model, for instance. The Amos 230 does folds away easily and is more compact and easier to store than the bulkier upright models.
