New Dyson Hot and Cool fan and heater unveiledWhich? verdict on the Dyson AM09 portable fan
15 April 2015
The new Dyson Hot + Cool air fan is a portable heater that can also blow cool air. This latest addition to the range of bladeless fans from Dyson can switch between heating and cooling the whole room or focusing just on you. We've given it to one of our researchers to try out so we can bring you our first impressions – including our exclusive video.
The fan uses Dyson's Air Multiplier technology to give a fast flow of air without moving parts. And as well as warming a room or blowing cool air, the fan can be focused to give a jet of air to warm you up or cool you down without having to sit close to it. This portable fan also has Quiet Mark accreditation from the Noise Abatement Society and a timer so you can set it to automatically turn off.
The Dyson AM09 Hot + Cool has a lot of features, but is it worth the £399.99 price tag?
