About this deal

The Black + Decker 3 Tier Heated Airer arrived folded down, held in place with a couple of cable ties. Clothes took over two and a half minutes to dry and testers found the airer's temperature was consistent throughout use.

Clothes were dry (and handily crease-free) within four hours, while bedding took one and a half hours.If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. There are ones with wings, large three-tier ones and drying pods aimed at people who are short on space. Its controls were straightforward, and the three tiers provide ample space to dry a full load of laundry.

Closely resembling traditional clothes horses, heated clothes airers have heating elements within their rails to warm your washing and speed up the drying process. In fact, it scored full marks for this on test, thanks to how simple it is to put up and down and move around the home. Making partial payments may result in a portion of the lump sum of compound interest being refunded at the end of the delayed payment period. When I powered up the airer for the first time, I had to check to make sure it was definitely on, as it seemed to take a while to heat up, compared to heated airers that I had used before.A great value design resembling a more traditional airer, this dried our clothes within two and a half hours and our bedsheets in one hour forty. Thanks to its tall frame, this is suited to drying sheets and longer garments such as trousers and dresses.

The prongs get so hot you can only keep your finger on them for like 5 seconds before you have to take them off.But this is still notably quicker than a traditional airer – for reference, our experts tested these dryers in summer and found a well-spun load of clothes on an unheated clothes airer took six and a half hours to dry.

The drawbacks are that it uses a 230V British plug and would be much less effective on a 110V American power supply if you’re travelling, and it is a little noisy (think hair dryer on low setting). There’s no struggle to squeeze a top or a pair of trousers into the middle rail, for example, you can simply throw the clothes over it as fast as you can and get on with something else. And with regards to the cover, Mumsnetters swear by the old fitted sheet hack, which has worked well for me in the past too.

Because it’s vertical, I think it’s an efficient shape in terms of how much space it takes up (handy if you only have a small space) and more pleasing to the eye than more horizontal designs.
