“I’m just going to put an extra layer on,” is a phrase we’re sure you'll say more times than you can count over the next few months.

Not only is the temperature changing (and not for the better), but many of us are still working from home and haven't yet fully conceded to the idea of wearing our cashmere socks and several layers again. 

Our suggestion? Snap up the Russell Hobbs 500W Ceramic Plug Heater to get you through winter. Simply plug it in and heat up your space - no extra heating necessary.

It was an Amazon bestseller last year and we're certain it will continue to rise in popularity as the temperature drops. 

Why we rate it: 

Who doesn’t love feeling warm and cosy while it’s pouring with rain or snowing outside?

Plus, the 12-hour timer can be used to heat your home at times that suit your daily routine, like heating your bedroom before you get up in the morning.

How it works:

The built in thermostat regulates the temperature around the heater, helping to maintain the perfect level of warmth. Simply select a temperature from 15°C to 30°C using the digital control and the ceramic heating element converts energy into heat quickly and efficiently.

The 500W plug-in heater is ideal for warming small spaces up to 10m2, perfect for close-proximity heating in rooms such as offices, caravans and utility rooms.

What the reviews say:

With over 850 reviews, it's clear that shoppers love the ceramic plug heater, so much so that they're willing to give up their spare time to let you know just how good it is. 

Shoppers were surprised by how "quickly" and "efficiently" it warmed up a room, given how small it is, with many using it in their loft conversions, garage offices or makeshift shed gyms. 

Some thought it worked "so well" that they used it as the sole source of warmth in their camper vans. 

Many loved how easily "transportable" the heater is too, so that it can be easily moved from room-to-room, so that if one person is in the house, the entire heating system doesn't have to be switched on.

In short, the general consensus is that the gadget is "surprisingly good".
