Rated 1 out of 5 by SW11 Pooooor quality
Our third of this model of De'Longhi dehumidifier in four years time has just stopped working, only a year and 9 days after we bought it in June 2014. During the time we have had it, it has been off for repair for four weeks (I suspect it was replaced by a new one, as it was boxed on return, so it may well be our fourth De'Longhi dehumidifier...). We bought our first one in 2011 and John Lewis replaced it with a new one during the guarantee period, as it too stopped working, so we have actually only bought two. As this last one came with a 1-year warranty, John Lewis won't repair (or replace) it again, despite their promise of all electrical goods being guaranteed for a minimum of 2 years if purchased after October 2013. When the De'Longhi works, it works well (we used it to dry laundry), but I will not buy a De'Longhi again...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mu59 Can't live without it
We use this dehumidifier to dry clothes when we can't outside. It dries them quickly and, at the same time, makes the room warm and comfortable to be in.
In cold weather there is no need for any other heating if we have this working.
It only takes a few minutes to make the room the perfect to sit in.
It really saves on heating bills.

Amazed at the amount of water it collected in newly plastered bedroom and shower room. Worth every penny.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HFB21 Effective but less impressed with second time purchase
I have just bought this dehumidifier, replacing an identical unit that had lasted five years. Was always pleased with the effectiveness of this model, which is why I bought the same again but the product quality is not as good as the one purchased five years ago. My first replacement, the motor failed within a couple of weeks, replaced of course without query by John Lewis, but even my second replacement feels less robust. It also needs a lot of care to avoid spilling water when you remove the water container to empty it, unlike my original unit. But, without doubt, it is small, light and easy to move between rooms - with care if there is water in it - reasonably quiet when running, and perfect for my small flat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JENN2015 really pleased
This dehumidifier is small and fairly light, so easy to transport around the house. It seems to 'catch' a lot of moisture. The timer setting is useful - can set it to 2 /4 / 8 hours. I have used the clothes drying function a lot and it really makes a difference to the drying time of clothes! It is a bit frightening how much moisture is created from drying clothes inside. This machine is fairly quiet, however I would say, for me, it is too noisy to have on in a room where you are sleeping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pat9293 Delonghi AriaDry Light
We bought a Meaco 10L dehumidifier from John Lewis 13 months ago. It collected at least two litres of water a day and we were very pleased with the results. Unfortunately it recently stopped collecting the water in the container and leaked over the floor. John Lewis exchanged it for us but did not have the same model in stock, so we paid the difference to upgrade to the DeLonghi instead.
Having used it for a couple of weeks I find that if we leave it on for the same amount of time as our previous dehumidifier, about 12/13 hours a day, it seems to collect only a third as much over the same period which I find very disappointing given the extra money we have paid.
I wouldn’t recommend this product given that you can get the Meaco for less money than this and it does a superior job.
However I would like to complement the quality of service I received from John Lewis which was excellent through the exchange.
