With the winter chill really kicking in I decided to invest in a portable oil-filled heater that I could move around my flat when a little extra heat was needed. I chose the DeLonghi model because it was stylish and functional, and would provide more power than a small fan heater. I had also bought a fan heater a couple of years ago and whilst it was much cheaper it did not last more than one winter so I figured that I would invest in something a little more durable this time.

So far I have been very impressed with this heater. First of all I do like the design, and while it is sturdily built it is still lightweight enough to move around - the wheels make it easy to move especially on a laminated floor. The cable isn't particularly long which does restrict where I can put it in each room, but this is not too big a deal as the heat fills the room eventually, plus the radiator heats up very quickly even on the low power setting. I also like the thermostat feature which means that I can set it to turn on and off when needed and the overheat cut-out function also improves the safety of the product - I really like this feature as I feel more comfortable leaving it on for longer periods of time.

Overall I think that the DeLonghi MTR2000 Oil Filled Radiator is a great product - lightweight, functional and powerful. I think that this is an excellent supplement to my central heating when the English winter gets particularly bad! I do not expect to use it all of the time but more on an occasional basis when the temperature really plummets and I want a little extra heat; if this is the context in which you intend to use it then it definitely will not disappoint.
