De'Longhi DES12 Compact Dehumidifier

Product information

The neat De'Longhi DES12 dehumidifier is designed to remove moisture and damp from homes, and can also be used to dry clothes. With its pull-up handle, it’s easy to move around the house too.

It has a 3-litre tank with level indicator, with the Tank Control System automatically stopping extraction when the tank is full. There’s a humidistat for setting the desired level, plus an electronic ant-frost device that works down to 2ºC.

The double condenser elimination system gives the option of discharging the removed moisture directly into the tank, or continuously through a 2m pipe (included). Finally, thanks to the Bio Silver Tech system, the air the DES12 blows back into the room will always be thoroughly filtered.

Q & As

De'Longhi DES12 Compact Dehumidifier 4.3 5 76 76
Great for drying clothes I had got sick of hanging damp clothes in the bathroom for days on end, so I installed one of these in a cupboard, replaced the shelves with horizontal rods and got myself an airing cupboard. Now a machine load of washing is bone dry in about 3 hours. I'd hoped that the humidistat would cut out once the washing was dry but if I don't have it set to full it doesn't quite do it; that's my only disappointment. Otherwise, very happy. 18 September 2014
Compact Dehumidifier It is working well to remove excess humidity from large bedroom and on-suit bathroom (shower used 1-2x/day). It is about as loud as a fan. It does add some heat to the room. 15 July 2014
Quiet, and good for warm, humid places I bought this to reduce the humidity in a small terraced front room where I keep a piano. In summer, if I leave it on "Max" (not "Dry") 24/7 then it keeps the RH about 55%, which is better than the 62% it tends to stay at with it switched off (although I would have preferred 50%). Really, it's best for warm humid places, like clothes drying in a hot bathroom. It's ok for what I'm using it for, but I don't think it would do much in a cold damp room in winter. The desiccant sort would be better for that. The sound is like a good fan heater - can hardly hear the compressor part. In winter I don't expect to need it as the room will be heated (indeed, I may need a humidifier). Overall, I quite like it. 08 July 2014
Drain tank is not at all easy to remove Just bought it a day ago.. and i'm already struggling to empy the tank. Its just NOT easy at all to remove the water tank. I would definitely not recommend this product. 10 June 2014
Does the job! This dehumidifier certainly seems to do the job that is needed from it. It dehumidifies the room, and the collected water is easy enough to empty out each time. 02 June 2014
A slimline useful product. I found this product was all I hoped it would be. It dried the damp patch quite quickly and was not obtrusive.I liked the design and colour. 04 April 2014
good product First one didn't work but collection and re delivery was sorted easily. Very nice and compact so it doesn't get in the way. Lead could do with being longer. Noisy but does a great job. Would have given it a 5 if it wasn't so noisy and had a longer lead. 28 March 2014
After sales hopeless - swapped out for different item I was initially pleased with this but it became very noisy. Sent back for repair/replacement and De Longi messed us around for 6 weeks (including offering a new one, then apparently losing the authorisation for that) then seem to have admitted they've lost the dehumidifier. John Lewis offered full purchase price against a different one so full marks to JL but I'll NEVER buy another De Longhi product. (This was important as trying to dry out bedroom from roof leak, and has affected my heath significantly! This had been communicated to DeL...) 14 March 2014
