Heated clothes airers have absolutely exploded in popularity these past couple of years.
The home gadget not only ensures your laundry dries quickly in the winter months, but also costs pennies per hour to run, meaning it's much more most cost-effective than a traditional tumble dryer.
The only issue? Finding one that's still in stock.
The in-demand item is currently hard to get your hands on at Lakeland, Dunelm, Argos and more. Luckily, John Lewis' 3-Tier Heated Indoor Clothes Airer has just been restocked — but you'll have to hurry to add it to your basket as it definitely won't be around for long.
Why we rate it
John Lewis' 3-Tier Heated Indoor Clothes Airer boasts a large 300W output and surfaces temperatures of 40-50C, meaning your clothing with be nice and toasty in no time.
Each of the three tiers can hold up to a maximum weight of 5kg, which one customer said can hold the whole wash load for a household of four.
Plus, the clever design also features four hooks ideal for those trickier items such as slippers, socks and underwear.
The airer is not only sturdy but also lightweight and foldable, so it can easily be stored away like any other traditional airer.
The best thing? It costs little to run, one customer review said that even with the recent energy hike, it costs them "about 10p an hour to run", but this will vary dependant on your energy tariff.
While it doesn't come with a cover, one customer said to accelerate drying time they drape an old, clean sheet over the top and enclose the dryer within it by securing with clothes pegs.
As an added bonus, it even comes with a two year guarantee.
What the reviews say
The 3-Tier Heated Indoor Clothes Airer has received a huge number of five star reviews from shoppers, with some even claiming to have completely ditched their tumble dryer in favour of this. Buyers have described it as a "game changer", and "perfect for winter".
"It's amazing, dries washing really well, no condensation in the house, ordered another one. Well worth the price. Shoe dryer is excellent. Don't need the heating on, warms the house up."
"These items are like gold dust so thanks to JL for notifying me that they were back in stock. Fabulous! Take it out of the box, plug it in and good to go. Nothing to assemble...My laundry is finally dried thoroughly...It's also light and easy to move. An absolute gem and as I hope to discover, easy on the electricity bill."
"It holds lots and frees up the radiators, and it gets things dry well before any awful musty smell sets in. It's flexible too, so if you're short of space you can fold parts away easily to make more room. Would definitely recommend."
"I've been using this since 2019 and I absolutely love it. My cat, like everyone elses, absolutely loves it, and often spends full days or evenings sitting under or on it...It also warms a room well, an unexpected bonus during the cost of living crisis..."
"This airer is brilliant. Strong, lightweight, takes a full load of washing, dries in a few hours and clothes less creased than when dried in a tumble dryer."
