Feeling the chill? You’re not alone. With snow settling and low temperatures set to continue, we could all do with a bit of extra help to keep warm right now. If your current space heater is on its last legs or your radiators can’t keep up with the weather, the answer might be a bargain portable heater.
De’Longhi’s Capsule Ceramic Fan Heater usually retails for £44.99, but right now you can buy it from Amazon for £35.86. That’s 20% or almost a tenner off the RRP.
And the best news is that it could be with you by Wednesday.
Portable heaters don’t tend to be particularly nice to look at, erring on the functional side of design. (The exception to this rule are Dyson bladeless heaters. If you have more budget, the £399 Hot + Cool, which doubles as a fan for summer, is a great option. Even more to spend? You can get the air purifying Pure Hot + Cool for £549. Check out our review to find out more.)
The De’Longhi capsule heater is not only nicely designed but feels solid and built to last.
It’s petite (192 x 137 x 270mm) but capable and can be placed on your desk or on the floor. It’s a 1,800W appliance with two heat settings. It’s also portable, weighing only 1.3 kg, and has a handle on top so you can easily bring it from room to room with you.
We reviewed it and liked it a lot. Our only criticism is that it’s a bit noisy. But stick it under the desk and it’ll save your toes from freezing up without making it hard to follow your Zoom calls.
