John Lewis Rotary Airer
This rotary airer arrived with no fitting instructions. We have done our best but cannot get it to rotate. We need help to get it to work properly.

Excellent quality, super easy to open and close and loads of drying space for our family. Comes with a ground spike, which we set in concrete for stability. We bought the John Lewis cover separately and it fits really well and keeps the airer clean and dry.

Good solid washing line. Light weight and easy to put up and down. My only disappointment is that it does not turn freely in the socket. It goes round when pushed but not very easily. Also JL did not give the turning circle measurement which would have been useful. But otherwise service/delivery to Waitrose was speedy and efficient as always.

Good as an airer but developed a fault
As a line, it is really good. Holds all of the washing that we wish to put on it. The main pole and spike are far superior to a large DIY chain's product. Sadly after 8 months, one of the outer lines has snapped where it goes into the arm. Due to the fact that the lines are held in pieces of crimped metal within the arm, there is no chance of a repair.
The good news is that JL are replacing the line immediately - fantastic customer service !!

Product not to standard
After less than a year's use by a small family the main pole and spike have started to rust. A line has broken and I cannot see how it can be repaired. Have no faith in a replacement being any better so am returning.

Helpful staff in store
Having decided on-line which model to purchase, I went into the Southampton store to view the model, only to find that they do not have them on display. However a very helpful young assistant helped me order on-line with vouchers and delivery was painless. I would echo other reviews in commenting that it is difficult to get the lines taught apart from the two outer lines which are factory tightened and I do not understand the reason for this. At present it is too stiff to put up and down. I would therefore rate it only average.

Have been using this for a couple of weeks - the spike has loosened in our very sandy soil thus requiring a bit more knocking in but otherwise no problems. Easy to use and plenty of room. I'm not sure what happens when the line needs replacing as each row is individually strung - but will worry about that when the time comes!
