Lidl’s sell-out gadget hailed as 'best purchase ever' to avoid putting heating on – and it’s cheaper than Argos and B&M | The Sun
16th November 2023

LIDL's sell-out winter gadget that will help you save money on bills is coming back in days.

The discount supermarket has an Addis 12m heated airer for £34.99, which is cheaper than B&M and Argos.

The heated clothes airer uses less energy than a tumble dryer and is quicker at drying laundry than a conventional airer.

According to Uswitch a tumble dryer using a 2.5kWh per cycle would be 68p per cycle.

However, using a nifty gadget like this one from Lidl can save you hundreds of pounds a year as it costs around just 6p to run.

The wings on the airer fold out to give a drying space of 12m and it holds 10kg of laundry.

According to the website it is made from lightweight aluminium and is easy to move around.

It is also quick and easy to assemble and can be folded down when not in use for easy storage.

The heated airer also comes with a 1 year warranty.

While you won't be able to buy it online you can find your nearest store using the store locator tool on the website.

Shoppers who have previously bought the Addis airer have described it as "the best purchase ever".

Another said: "Even this time of year my washing is dry in a day".

As always it is good to shop around to make sure you are getting the cheapest deal.

You can use sites such as Google Shopping to compare items from different retailers.

We had a look around to see what other retailers were charging for heated airers of the same size, and at the time we checked Lidl's was the cheapest.

Argos has a Minky 12m heated winged airer for £60, so quite a bit more expensive than Lidl's, however, this one does come with a cover.

The idea of the cover is that it helps to keep the heat constant and therefore can help to dry your clothes even quicker.

We also checked B&M and it had an Addis airer that looks almost identical to the one in Lidl.

The one in B&M is still more expensive and priced at £50, making it £16 more than in Lidl.

Aldi has also recently had a version in stock, however, when we checked it was no longer available on the website.

Prices and stock levels can change all the time so it is best to do your own research before buying.

There are lots of airers on the market at the moment and it can be overwhelming trying to make the right choice.

To make a bit easier we did a round-up of the 10 best heated airers around at the moment.

Other ways to save money on your heating bills

There are a few things that you can do if you are worried about soaring bills in the winter.

Draught-proofing your home can help to stop precious heat escaping and it doesn't have to cost a fortune.

You can buy a roll of draught-proofing tape to put around the gaps in your doors and windows for around £5 off Amazon.

According to the Energy Saving Trust, this could save you around £45 a year on your energy bills.

Also, it is important to close your curtains when you put the heating on, it might seem like a simple thing but it can help a lot when trying to heat your home.

Just turning your thermostat down by just one degree can be another easy way to save £100 a year.

You could also invest in a heated blanket or throw which like the clothes airer can run from as little as 2p an hour.

We pulled together a full list of things you can do to slash your energy bills this winter.
